Haley, who memorably delivered a stinging rebuke of Trump following the State of the Union in January, said Wednesday she wasn't interested in being his running mate.
 
 
Trump has said he wants someone with political experience to serve as his running mate, signaling there was a chance it could be a former rival.

Trump confirmed to Fox News that he's spoken with Rubio since the senator dropped out in March. The New York Times reported they've spoken by phone multiple times.

"We've had really nice conversations, not necessarily about" the VP slot, Trump said. "Not necessarily with respect to any position, but it could happen."
