Report: South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley Being Considered for Secretary of State

(Before It's News)

If true, this one is completely out of left field.

 South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is under consideration by President-elect Donald Trump for secretary of state, and other cabinet positions, a transition source told CNN Wednesday, despite their rocky history.

Trump is going to meet with Haley, former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Cincinnati Mayor Ken Blackwell, Admiral Mike Rogers and Rep. Jeb Hensarling on Thursday, according to Trump’s communication director Jason Miller and Republican National Committee spokesman Sean Spicer.

Haley has not been the most ardent supporter of Trump. She backed Senator Marco Rubio during the primaries, but reluctantly came around and put her support behind the nominee, Trump, after it was clear that he was the one.

Haley, South Carolina’s first female and Indian-American governor, had spent most of the election season criticizing Trump, including taking aim at him during her high-profile role giving the Republican response to the State of the Union.

“During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices,” Haley said at the time from the governor’s residence in Columbia. “We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.”

Trump’s response was to slam Haley’s record on immigration, calling her “weak” on immigration.

At this point, this is still rumor, but it’s an interesting one.
