Tucker Carlson has been a steadfast supporter of Trump, standing by him through various challenges.
However, it seems there’s a potential deal-breaker for him in the 2024 elections. Carlson, the former Fox host, isn’t too keen on Nikki Haley and is contemplating withdrawing his support if Trump decides to have her on the ticket.
“Would you vote for Trump if he chose Nikki as VP?” Tim Pool asked the TV star, 54, in a live discussion.
The ousted Fox News star, who was recently asked if he would consider being Trump’s running mate, said: “I would not only not vote for that ticket, I would advocate against it as strongly as I could.”
He continued, “That’s just poison. I mean, here’s someone who’s actively opposed to the interests of the country I grew up in, who endorsed the BLM riots, and who is not left, but is neoliberal in the darkest, most — speaking of nihilist — nihilistic way, and has no real popular support, is a creature of the oligarchs. So yeah, that would be — that would be reason to oppose the ticket.”
Though Trump, 77, is likely not to pick Haley, who used to work for the former president, his daughter-in-law Lara Trumpstated it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibilities.
“Crazier things have happened. I don’t know. I would never say never with Donald J. Trump. Never say never,” she told Newsmax host Eric Bolling.
