The 2024 presidential hopeful recently requested to meet with Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort as some kind of last ditch effort to win over his supporters, but Trump ended up shutting the gate on her.
According to sources, Trump has rejected Haley’s request to meet after she denounced him following the 2020 election.
Check it out:
Former President Donald Trump this week declined to meet with Nikki Haley, his former ambassador to the United Nations and a prospective 2024 presidential candidate, according to a source familiar with the matter.
Politico first reported that Haley reached out to Trump on Wednesday to request a face-to-face meeting at his Mar-a-Lago resort. But Trump turned her down after Haley has spent recent weeks criticizing the former president for his role in the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
A spokesperson for Trump did not respond to a request for comment.
Trump has met with other GOP officials at Mar-a-Lago since leaving office, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and more recently House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.).
Haley left the Trump administration in 2018 and remained loyal to the then-president, backing his re-election bid as GOP insiders predicted she would be a likely candidate in the 2024 primary.
White House officials on multiple occasions had to bat down speculation that Trump might replace then-Vice President Pence with Haley on the 2020 ticket.
But in the wake of the Jan. 6 riots, where Trump supporters stormed the Capitol to halt the certification of electoral votes, leaving a police officer dead and dozens injured in the mayhem, Haley has attempted to simultaneously condemn Trump’s role without entirely detaching herself from the former president and his political base.
Good for Trump!
