Former Republican US presidential candidate Nikki Haley is under active consideration by Donald Trump’s campaign to be his running mate, news site Axios reports, citing unidentified people familiar with the situation.

Trump could pick Haley if he were convinced she could help him win the presidency, avoid a potential prison sentence and cover tens of millions in legal bills if he loses, the report says

Haley, the former South Carolina governor and a former US ambassador to the United Nations, ended her log-shot challenge to Republican presidential frontrunner Trump in March.

She said it was likely Trump – who repeatedly belittled her candidacy – would be the Republican nominee, but did not endorse him.
