Donald Trump Attacks Top Female GOP Personality

Former President Donald Trump recently addressed reports that former United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley asked him to select her for the 2020 vice presidential nomination.

Trump would not answer the question specifically, but did say he did not want to embarrass the former UN Ambassador, who he called "overly ambitious."

The conversation happened on Hugh Hewitt’s nationally syndicated radio show.

Trump Set The Record Straight

A partial transcript follows:

TRUMP: Now in the case of Nikki Haley, she’s gone around publicly. You saw this all over the place.

HEWITT: Correct.

TRUMP: And she said I’ll never run against my president. He’s a great president. He’s been our greatest president. I’ll never run. I’ll never run. But Nikki suffers from something that’s a very tough thing to suffer from. She’s overly ambitious.

HEWITT: You know, Mike Pompeo says in his book that she asked you to become the Vice President in place of Mike Pence in the 2020 election. Is that true?

TRUMP: It’s absolutely false. That who asked me? Nikki Haley asked me to be Vice President?

HEWITT: Yeah, that’s in, according to John Kelly. That didn’t happen?

TRUMP: Can you imagine? That I would run as Vice President to Nikki Haley?

HEWITT: No, no, Nikki Haley asked you if she could be your vice presidential nominee in 2020.

TRUMP: Oh, I thought you said that she asked me if I’d be her vice president. That would be, that would be a big story.

HEWITT: No, no. Did she…

TRUMP: If anybody would say yes, I did, you should immediately take that person off your list as ridiculous. Okay, no, I did not ask her at all to be vice president. Nope, never mentioned it to her.

HEWITT: And she didn’t bring it up to you?

TRUMP: I don’t want to say that. I’m not going to embarrass her, but I have never asked her to be vice president.
