A new report alleged that Nikki Haley is being considered for the Vice President position.

This comes after Trump beat her in the GOP primary by a wide margin.

Axios reported:

Nikki Haley is under active consideration by Donald Trump’s campaign to be his running mate, two people familiar with the dynamic told Axios.

Why it matters: The GOP rivals’ relationship remains chilly, but Trump could pick Haley if he were convinced she’d help him win the presidency, avoid a potential prison sentence and cover tens of millions in legal bills if he loses.

Zoom in: Republicans close to both campaigns believe it’s in Haley and Trump’s mutual interests to reconcile, despite their bitter fight in the GOP primary and their divergent views on some big issues.

Trump is scrambling to make up a fundraising disadvantage against President Biden and pay legal fees. Haley, meanwhile, has deep ties to donors who are wary of the former president.

Donald Trump debunked the report stating that “Nikki Haley is not under consideration for the V.P. slot.”
