Indian-origin Haley had good discussions with President-elect
South Carolina's Indian-American Governor Nikki Haley has met President-elect Donald Trump here and had "good" discussions about the new administration, amid reports that she was a top contender for either secretary of state or secretary of commerce in his Cabinet.
"Governor Haley was pleased to meet with President-elect Trump," Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey said as American media reported about swirling speculation about his Cabinet picks.
"They had a good discussion, and she is very encouraged about the coming administration and the new direction it will bring to Washington," Godfrey said.
But details of the meeting were scarce, South Carolina's The State newspaper reported today on yesterday's Haley-Trump meeting in New York's Trump Tower. Haley, 44, a late endorser of Trump, originally threw her support behind Florida Senator Marco Rubio before the South Carolina primary in February.
