As rumors continue to swirl about potential GOP presidential candidates for the 2024 election, Donald Trump has called out one potential contender: Nikki Haley.
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is one of many people believed to be preparing for a presidential run in 2024. The question is: will she have the support of the GOP voter base? It’s highly unlikely, and Donald Trump knows why.
While many believe that Trump will run again in 2024, and polls show that he would easily win the primary, other leaders within the Republican Party are preparing to throw their hats in the ring.
Left-wing “news” outlet Second Nexus writes:
“The former President is the undisputed favorite to win the nomination due to the unyielding loyalty of his supporters and of heavy-hitters within the Republican party. If he chooses not to run, his endorsement could be a decisive factor of the race. Yet potential candidates are still treading lightly in order not to position themselves against Trump and be labeled a RINO.”
Nikki Haley is one of those candidates. In a recent piece by Vanity Fair discussing the Republican primary landscape, Donald Trump provided a comment about Haley.
“Well, every time she criticizes me, she uncriticizes me about 15 minutes later,” Trump said.
Looking at the evidence, the former president is correct. As Trump is the most popular figure in the GOP at the moment, Haley would need his support to win the hearts of Republican voters. The problem is, she can’t seem to pick a side. One day, she supports him. The next, she’s attacking him.
Soon after January 6th, Haley made a statement about Trump that lost her the respect of the GOP base.
“We need to acknowledge he let us down. He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again,” Haley said during an interview with left-wing outlet Politico soon after the Capitol riot on January 6.
When asked in that same interview if she thinks Trump will run again, Haley further destroyed her credibility as a conservative, stating: “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.”
In another instance, Haley flat-out lied about the former president.
“President Trump has not always chosen the right words. He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time. He was badly wrong with his words yesterday … and it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history,” Haley said.
Of course, her statement is a complete lie. The GOP Times reports:
“Trump was not ‘wrong with his words in Charlottesville.’ The media, the left, and spineless Republicans are wrong about his words in Charlottesville. They claim that he called Neo-Nazis ‘very fine people.’ Though Haley didn’t make this exact claim in her speech, it is what she was referring to. What Trump actually said was: ‘You had some very bad people in that group. You also had some very fine people on both sides… You had people—and I’m not talking about the neo-Nazis and the white nationalists. They should be condemned totally. You had many people in that group other than neo-Nazis and white nationalists.’”
There are countless other examples of Haley turning on Donald Trump, and because of her flip-flopping, she has no future in the Republican Party.
Trump isn't wrong. Haley is a spineless, pandering ball of squish who doesn't know what wing of the GOP she wants to run with and doesn't know what voters she wants to court. https://t.co/KjZHExggZN
