Former President Donald Trump does not seem to be looking former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s way when it comes to the question of his vice presidential pick. During a Friday rally in Concord, New Hampshire, he asserted that Haley is not cut out for presidency and would most likely not be chosen as the vice president.

“She is OK, but she is not presidential timber. And when I say that, that probably means she is not going to be chosen as the vice president,” he stated.

According to Trump, Haley might not possess the strength needed to handle tough negotiations with leaders of rival countries.

“I know her very well. She’s not tough enough. She’s not smart enough. And she wasn’t respected enough. She cannot do this job. She’s not going to be able to deal with President Xi. She’s not going to be able to deal with Putin,” he stated.

In a statement that completely takes Haley out of the equation when it comes to speculations of who he will pick as running mate, Trump stated that he can not walk back the evaluation of the former U.N. ambassador’s ability in the future.

In his words, “When you say certain things, it sort of takes them out of play, right? I can’t say, ‘She’s not of the timber to be the vice president’ and then say, ‘Ladies and gentleman, I’m proud to announce that I’ve picked.'”

While stopping at a diner in Amherst in New Hampshire that Friday, Haley also suggested that being Trump’s vice president is “off the table.”

“I don’t want to be anybody’s vice president. That is off the table. I have always said that. That is a game they play that I’m not going to play. I don’t want to be vice president,” she said.

Haley and Trump have ramped up attacks against each other as the New Hampshire primary is four days away. But Before this week, there had been speculation that Haley could be among those the GOP frontrunner is considering as his running mate.

In December, Trump reportedly asked people close to him what they thought of Haley as vice president, as he also sought his allies’ impressions of other prominent Republicans including Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), Sen. J.D. Vance (R-OH), Arizona Republican Kari Lake and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC), who was in the race for president before dropping out in November.

Stefanik is reportedly “at the top” of Trump’s list of running mate potentials, according to sources close to the former president. Trump also had high opinions of her when asked about her during a dinner with Mar-a-Lago officials in late December, where he said, “She’s a killer.”
