Megyn Kelly stated on Wednesday that former President Trump should choose his running companion for the 2024 presidential election from among “establishment” Republicans, such as former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley or Florida governor Ron DeSantis.

Kelly stated in an interview with NewsNation’s “Elizabeth Vargas Reports” that a substantial portion of the Republican base finds Trump “not that popular.”

“Well, you may not have heard that Trump is not that popular with a core segment of the Republican Party,” Kelly claimed.

She cited his recent lackluster performance in the Indiana GOP presidential primary, where he received 78 percent of the vote despite being the only remaining candidate.

“He should pick a running mate that will represent that faction of the party, that is not core MAGA, that’s a little bit more establishment.” she concluded.

“That’s the truth about most Republicans now. While they would still vote for Trump, most are not core MAGA.” she added.

Two months after concluding her campaign, Haley still managed to earn 22 percent.

She acknowledged that it is improbable that Trump would choose Haley or DeSantis, his principal opponents in the 2024 primary contest.

However, she advised the former president to select a vice presidential candidate who possessed comparable popularity.

The competition for the position of Trump’s running companion has intensified in recent weeks, as the candidate himself has utilized the audition process to mobilize a virtual army of surrogates who disseminate his arguments and support him while he remains incarcerated in a Manhattan courtroom.

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Trump has amassed an expanding roster of prospective vice presidential candidates, which includes Senators JD Vance (Ohio), Tim Scott (S.C.), and Marco Rubio (Fla.); Doug Burgum, the governor of North Dakota; Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the governor of Arkansas; Elise Stefanik, a representative from New York; and Byron Donalds, a senator from Florida.

DeSantis and Haley are both absent from the list following a contentious primary campaign.

Haley abstained from endorsing Trump during the period in which she ceased her presidential campaign, while DeSantis offered an ambivalent endorsement of the former leader.
