In a notable turn of events, former President Donald Trump has expressed his gratitude for Nikki Haley’s recent endorsement, hinting at a potential collaboration in the future. Following a rally in the Bronx, Trump spoke with News 12 New York, acknowledging the intense rivalry he and the former South Carolina governor had during the GOP primaries but noted their shared political vision.

Haley, who served as the U.S. ambassador to the UN under Trump, announced her support for the former president on Wednesday. Trump’s reaction was positive, suggesting that Haley might have a significant role in his political endeavors. “I think she’s going to be on our team because we have a lot of the same ideas, the same thoughts,” Trump stated. “We had a nasty campaign, it was pretty nasty. But she’s a very capable person, and I’m sure she’s going to be on our team in some form, absolutely.”

This endorsement is poised to give Trump a crucial boost as he prepares for the November election. Despite their combative primary exchanges, Haley’s backing could help unify the party. Her decision comes at a pivotal moment, as Trump seeks to consolidate support within the GOP for a strong election performance.

During the interview, News 12’s Tara Rosenblum inquired about potential vice-presidential candidates. Trump declined to provide a shortlist but mentioned several key figures. “We have so many, I don’t want to do that,” Trump said, before noting former HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Senators Marco Rubio and J.D. Vance, and Representative Elise Stefanik as potential candidates who could do a “fantastic job.”

Haley’s endorsement demonstrates her strategic alignment within the party, positioning herself alongside Trump’s substantial base while maintaining her appeal among moderate Republicans and independents. Her support is seen as a pragmatic step, recognizing Trump’s strong influence within the GOP.

As Trump continues his campaign, Haley’s endorsement could play a critical role in attracting undecided voters and bolstering his chances in the November election. While a vice-presidential spot for Haley seems unlikely, her involvement in Trump’s campaign strategy remains a topic of considerable interest and speculation.
