Trump says he will ‘think about’ inviting Nikki Haley to speak at Republican convention

On Wednesday (10), former President Donald Trump said he would “take a look” at inviting his former Republican primary rival Nikki Haley to speak at the Republican convention next week.

The comments came after Haley said she was releasing her delegates to the Republican National Convention and encouraging them to support Trump.

Trump was asked on Fox News radio: “You didn’t invite her and you wanted to invite her? Was that an oversight or intentional?”

“Well, I’ll take a look at that. I mean, I heard that this morning, so I’ll take a look at that,” Trump responded.

“So would you like to see her there?” Trump was asked.

“I don’t know, I’ll look into it. I want to see, I know she gave up her delegates. You know, there was a lot of bad blood there. She stayed too long. She was getting soundly defeated everywhere, but she just wouldn’t budge. So we had to go on for another two months, which was ridiculous,” Trump said.

“You know, Ron DeSantis left right after Iowa. She should have left right after Iowa, she came in third. She didn’t come in second. Ron came in second, but he left right after Iowa because he saw he had no chance of winning.”

A CNN The Washington Post previously reported that neither DeSantis nor Haley would have a speaking role at the Republican convention, according to a source familiar with the planning. When Trump first accepted the party’s nomination for president in 2016, the two Republicans who received the second- and third-most delegates, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Marco Rubio, both spoke at the party’s convention.
