Trump Comes For Haley After New Hampshire Win
After a week of intensified attacks between the two major candidates left in the GOP presidential field, the attacks are not likely to be piped down even after former President Donald Trump’s win in New Hampshire’s primary on Tuesday. While speaking to his supporters during his victory speech, Trump slammed former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley for her speech.

“I have to tell you, it was very interesting because I said, ‘Wow, what a great victory.’ But then, somebody ran up to the stage all dressed up nicely — when it was at 7. But now I walked up and it said 14,” he said.
“She ran up when it was 7, and you know, we have to do what’s good for our party, and she was up and I said, ‘Wow, she’s doing a speech like she won. She didn’t win. She lost,’” he added.
The GOP frontrunner then took his supporters back to last Monday’s Iowa caucuses, where he won too, saying that Haley also gave a speech like she had the most votes that day.
In his words, “If you remember, Ron was very upset, because she ran up and she pretended she won Iowa. And I looked around and I said, didn’t she come in third? Yeah, she came in third. And then I looked at the polls, she was talking about most win-ability. Who is going to win, and I have one put up, we have won almost every single poll in the last three months against crooked Joe Biden. Almost every poll. And she doesn’t win those polls.”
Trump later emphasized that Haley lost, shooting down her attempts to find victory in her loss.
“Let’s not have somebody take a victory when she had a very bad night. She had a very bad night,” he said.
While Trump’s supporters and some political pundits have hypothetically handed the GOP’s presidential nomination to Trump with their belief that his back-to-back wins so far means that he will be the party’s official nominee, Haley believes that the race is not over.
“Now you’ve all heard the chatter among the political class. They’re falling all over themselves saying this race is over. Well, I have news for all of them: New Hampshire is first in the nation. It is not last in the nation. This race is far from over,” she said to her supporters after the voting, adding, “Now we’re the last one standing next to Donald Trump. And today we got close to half the vote. We still have ways to go, but we still keep moving up.”
