Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon predicted on Monday that “a big fight” would determine whether Nikki Haley becomes the running mate of former President Donald Trump in 2024. The event would take place in the spring.

Bannon made a prediction during an appearance on Human Events with Jack Posobiec.

“We’re gonna have a big fight that will take place in the Spring.” Bannon said.

:They’re gonna try to force Nikki on the ticket. They’ll say Trump needs a woman, Nikki on the ticket, she balances things and she can bring together that 15% of Never Trumpers in the Republican party. We’re going to have to have that fight.” he continued.

“If Nikki Haley is in this administration in any capacity, it will fail. She’s a viper. She’s a viper and once she gets in there, she’ll try to run it as prime minister. She’ll try to be Dick Cheney. Her to Trump will be just like Dick Cheney to Bush. That’s what she’ll try to do.” Bannon concluded.

Tucker Carlson, a former anchor on Fox News, threatened last month that he would oppose Trump’s reelection campaign if Haley was on the ticket with him.
