Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley might not be completely closed up to the idea of being former President Donald Trump’s running mate. During an interview with CBN News Chief Political Analyst David Brody, she was asked if she would consider or rule out the idea of being Trump’s VP pick.

“I know what you’re gonna say, ‘I don’t play for a second.’ I got it. I’ve seen the line. I get it. But Ron DeSantis has ruled it out, says, ‘No way, I’m not gonna do it.’ Are you going to rule it out?” Brody asked.

In response, Haley clarified that she does not play for second.

“It’s offensive when anybody says that, ‘Oh, you know, she wants to be vice president.’ You don’t do something like this to be vice president,” she stated. “You don’t sacrifice emotionally, mentally, physically, with your family, everything to come in for second. That’s not me. I’ve never done second a day in my life. I’m not going to start now.”

She then explained that she is in the presidential pool to save America. “Everybody knows that our country is in disarray, and the world is on fire. And I don’t trust anybody else to fix it. And I’m determined to get that done. And we’re gonna get it done. And the people want us to get that done. You can feel it. And that’s why you’re seeing us move in the polls,” she said.

Bringing her back to the question, Brody asked, “But you’re not going to rule it out?”

She still refused to categorically state if she is outrightly against the idea. All she said was, “I mean it’s not even a conversation and it doesn’t matter what candidate wants me to answer it. I don’t play for second. I don’t know what more I can say than to get them to understand that.”

Haley’s reaction towards the prospect of being Trump’s VP pick is different from that of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who have both accused her of angling for a second spot by Trump’s side should he win the Republican Party’s presidential nomination.

DeSantis challenged Haley last week to say if she would accept a VP nomination from Trump while saying he will never accept it if offered to him.

Referring to how the both of them are focused on attacking his campaign, he said. “He has not spent any money against her. And she has not spent any money against him. She will not answer directly, and she owes you an answer to this, will she accept a vice presidential nomination from Donald Trump? Yes or no?”

Christie, a vocal Trump critic, has also ruled out accepting a VP nomination. He, however, asserted that Haley does not not feel the same way, hence her soft approach toward Trump as they vie for the party’s nomination.

“When she hasn’t ruled out being his vice president, I don’t think you could take her as a serious contender against him. Ron DeSantis and I have both ruled out accepting the vice presidency from Donald Trump. Nikki Haley has not,” he said.
