MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) — South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley could possibly have a role in President-elect Donald Trump’s administration.
The two met Thursday at Trump Tower. Governor Haley’s staff released this statement after: “Governor Haley was pleased to meet with President-elect Trump. They had a good discussion, and she is very encouraged about the coming administration and the new direction it will bring to Washington.”
According to Joe Scarborough, former Florida congressman and host of MSNBC’s Morning “Morning Joe,” sources close to him say Haley is being considered for Secretary of State.
According to Scarborough, Trump’s transition team spent several days reaching out to former rivals to fill important cabinet positions.
This is a stark contract to a battle that played out in 140 characters between the pair on Tuesday, March 1. It came on the heels of Trump sharing tweets from two senior aides, trying to portray Haley as hypocritical of him releasing tax returns.
Trump tweeted: “The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley.”
Gov. Nikki Haley had a few words for Donald Trump saying “Bless your heart.”
The governor has also criticized Trump saying he represents “everything a governor doesn’t want in a president.” Haley endorsed Marco Rubio for president Wednesday, February 17, telling a crowd of supporters she chose to back a candidate who can “show my parents that the best decision they made for their children was coming to America.”
Haley reaffirmed her support for Donald Trump, after vowing to vote for the then-GOP nominee despite his attacks on her.
