Steve Bannon Warns About Possible Nikki Haley Vice Presidency

( — Steve Bannon, a popular Conservative icon and a former chief strategist for the White House, recently issued a warning about Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley. Bannon claims that Haley could potentially join former President Donald Trump’s ticket and serve as Trump’s vice president during his second term. Bannon claims that the Trump campaign shouldn’t select Haley as his vice president, as it would result in a failure for Republicans during the 2024 presidential election. Bannon’s primary concern regarding Haley is that she’d use her influence as vice president to exert more authority than other vice presidents are allowed, overextending the limits of her office.

Bannon issued the warning during an episode of his podcast, “War Room,” before heavily criticizing Haley. According to Bannon, Haley is a “viper” who’ll try to be the Trump administration’s equivalent to former Vice President Dick Cheney, who held the office during former President George W. Bush’s administration. Cheney infamously held massive influence during his time in the White House, with some media outlets reporting that Cheney convinced Bush to invade Iraq following the September 11th terrorist attack on the World Trade Center.

Bannon isn’t the only conservative personality arguing against Haley’s appointment as the vice presidential candidate, as Donald Trump’s own son outspokenly opposes her involvement in Trump’s second term. According to Donald Trump Jr., Trump’s oldest son, he’ll ensure that Haley doesn’t join Trump’s presidential ticket. Former Fox News host Tucker Carlson also addressed Haley’s potential appointment as running mate, claiming he strongly advocates against the decision. Despite the outspoken opposition to her joining Trump as a running mate, Haley isn’t discrediting rumors about joining Trump’s campaign.

When asked directly if she’d join Trump upon his nomination as the Republican presidential candidate, Haley avoided a direct answer. Haley claimed she wasn’t “running for second place” but failed to address the rumors surrounding her joining Trump. Haley is also facing heavy criticism for her comments regarding the American Civil War, where she stated the South fought in the Civil War to protect states’ rights. Media outlets quickly released reports criticizing Haley for the comments and accusing her of “whitewashing” the Civil War.

Although Haley is facing increased scrutiny for her comments about the Civil War, she remains one of the most popular Republican candidates running in the 2024 presidential election. Haley is currently tied with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as the second-most popular GOP candidate and could join Trump upon his nomination as the Republican Party’s presidential candidate.
