Carlson Sends Warning to Donald Trump

( – As the US approaches the primary elections, some are speculating who the nominees will pick as their running mates. While the president seems to have his choice locked, the Republican side is up in the air. Currently, former President Donald Trump is the clear frontrunner for the GOP, and an outspoken conservative just revealed who should stay off of his ticket for 2024.

On December 19, Newsweek reported that former Fox News host Tucker Carlson recently spoke with podcaster Tim Pool at Turning Point USA’s AmericaFest. Carlson warned Trump against picking his fellow Republican primary candidate Nikki Haley as his running mate. He not only said that choosing her would not only create a “poison” ticket, but even Carlson himself wouldn’t cast his vote for the pair in the general election.

The former host called Haley a “neoliberal in the darkest, most nihilistic way” with views in direct opposition to the “interests of the country.” He also said the former UN ambassador is bought and paid for, and is unpopular. That said, Carlson said he couldn’t imagine that Trump would choose her to run on his ticket — but “anything could happen.” He also dispelled rumors that Trump would pick him as his running mate, stating he couldn’t imagine spending that much time around politicians.

While Haley has been consistently moving up in the polls since August, others agree with Carlson that the pair wouldn’t be a great match. Furman University Professor Danielle Vinson told Newsweek she can’t see Haley supporting his “more chaotic or constitutionally questionable plans” in silence. Vinson said she also can’t imagine Trump would want her there. The professor believes it would be a bad move for Haley, who might have a shot at the White House in the future — but not if she’s carrying Trump baggage.

According to a Redfield & Wilton Strategies survey from December 8, 25% of Republican voters want Florida Governor Ron DeSantis as Trump’s running mate, 19% prefer Haley, and 16% chose GOP primary candidate Vivek Ramaswamy.
