Nikki Haley Makes Announcement To Supporters After Defeat In South Carolina


OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.

Former President Donald Trump believes that he has discovered the scheme that has former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley staying in the Republican Presidential primary contest.

The former president was speaking to a crowd of supporters when he said that he believes that Haley is being backed by Democrats to damage him.

“Nikki Haley is relying on Democrats and liberals. You know, Democrats are financing her campaign?” the former president said.

“Crazy. It’s called the crazy world of politics. You know, the Democrats are financing her campaign. One of her biggest supporters is a radical left Democrat who made some money with the internet. A very bad guy, actually, but he’s a Democrat,” he said.

“And those are the ones putting up money because they damage us. The biggest supporters she’s got right now are the Biden supporters. The Biden bundlers, the Biden cheaters. They’re the ones doing it for Nikki.

“So if you don’t want the ultra-left to meddle in this primary, and I think they’re going to try to end it, who the hell wants Democrats voting in a Republican primary? What is that about? What is that about? Don’t worry. You’re going to swamp them,” the former president said.


“It’s important that we do. By the way, we’re going to do great tomorrow. It’s really important you get out and vote. We want to send a signal to the real hard-line people, the people that are destroying our country, Joe Biden. We have to send them a signal we’re coming. So get out tomorrow,” he said.

“If you don’t feel well, don’t worry about it. Get up, get out. If your husband is not feeling good, darling — just get him out of bed. Don’t worry. He will be okay. Get out and vote. Tomorrow we’re going to win this state and then we’re going to tell crooked Joe Biden you’re fired. Get out of here. You’re fired.

“You know, it’s amazing. There’s more spirit now than at any time anyone has ever seen in any campaign,” he said.

Democrat California Gov. Gavin Newsom spoke with CNN anchor Jake Tapper where he admitted that Haley was one of his Party’s “best surrogates.”

“I think she’s one of our better surrogates,” he said.

“So I hope she stays in, hope she does well tomorrow,” he said the day before the South Carolina primary where she was steamrolled by the former president.

But Haley continued to say that she would stay in the contest.

“We need to beat Joe Biden in November. I don’t believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden. Nearly every day Trump drives people away, including with his comments just yesterday,” she said after her defeat.

“That’s about what we got in New Hampshire too. I’m an accountant. I know 40% is not 50%, but I also know 40% is not some tiny group,” she said.

Before the primary Haley was questioned by Fox News host Bret Baier about her reasons for staying in the campaign, and if she wanted to be former President Donald Trump’s vice president, she was emphatic in her answer.

“Where can you paint a picture on Super Tuesday where you can get a victory?” Baier said.


“We’re gonna see what happens tomorrow. But look, the problem when people say, “Why is she doing this? Why is she doing that?” At first, they were like, “She’s doing this because she wants to be vice president.” I think we’ve pretty much settled that. Then they’re saying–“ Haley said before Baier interrupted.

“Have we settled it?” he said.

“There is no political motivation. If there was political motivation, I would have gotten out of this a long time ago,” she said.

“By the way, have we settled the vice president thing?” the anchor said.

“Of course, we’ve settled it! I mean, there is in no way,” she said.

“So, it’s done?” the host said to which the candidate responded, “I’ve said it for months, it’s done.”

“Also, looking at a political future – I wouldn’t be doing this if I was worried about a political future. I would’ve gotten out already. I’m doing this trying to wake up our country,” she told the Fox News anchor.
