Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump says he does not have the governor of South Carolina on his list of potential running mates.

"No, not Nikki Haley. She wasn't under consideration," Trump told Fox News anchor Bret Baier on Thursday after Baier noted she was on a reported list of people Trump is looking at.

Haley has said she has no interest in the job, though she said she would be backing him as the nominee. 

She took what was viewed as a shot at Trump in January when she was tasked with giving the Republican response to President Barack Obama's State of the Union address.

"During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. 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," Haley said in her address.

Trump has called for mass deportations of illegal immigrants and for building a wall along the border with Mexico.
