SC Gov. Haley reportedly being considered for Secretary of State

SC Gov. Haley reportedly being considered for Secretary of State

In addition, members of Trump's presidential transition team have discussed Haley as a potential secretary of state and for at least one other position, McMaster said, declining to name the other position.

During her response to President Barack Obama's state of the union address, Haley urged fellow Republicans not to follow the "siren call of the angriest voices", a phrase many interpreted to be a reference to Trump. Several lawmakers have voiced opposition over the appointment of the former NY mayor, with Republican Sen.

Haley on Wednesday was officially elected vice chair of The Republican Governors Association for 2017, per media reports.

Haley has stated a few opinions on foreign policy - a few of them related to Trump's suggestions, as well. She also created an immigration law enforcement unit, which cost the state $1.3 billion.

Haley received flack from Trump himself on Twitter, to which she responded, "Bless your heart".

"She has worked tirelessly for the people of SC, to make every day a great day for her constituents, and that is just the kind of determination the RGA expects of its leaders". We're sort of building a government right now of people with no experience.

"I've been asked if I would be interested", McMaster said. "At a certain point, you need someone in the room who knows what's going on, who knows other people around the world and so on".

Haley would be an unlikely pick for a Trump administration cabinet, considering her past friction with the incoming president.

Others think Haley would be the ideal fit for the role.

"Sources tell me Donald Trump is now considering Governor Nikki Haley for Secretary of State", Scarborough said. Haley appeared on a panel called "Leading the Charge" with three other governors, then participated in a news conference.

Trump has spent the past several days reaching out to political figures who opposed him in the Republican primary to fill major positions.
