Former President Donald Trump warned Republican voters against former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley during a campaign speech in New Hampshire on Wednesday evening. The former president suggested to voters that voting Haley in next week’s primary is like putting in a Democratic and liberal voice.

“As you’ve probably heard, Nikki Haley is counting on Democrats and liberals to infiltrate your Republican Primary to put her over the top in this state — which is no surprise, since her campaign is funded by Democrats,” he said.
For Trump, a Haley win in the primaries equals a President Joe Biden win, as he argues that Biden would easily beat her in the general election if she wins the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. He pointed out that her donors know “she’s easy to beat,” and that is why they are backing her efforts on the Republican front.
Trump’s attacks on Haley goes beyond the campaign trail. On Tuesday, he took to Truth Social to slam her, writing, “Anyone listening to Nikki ‘Nimrada’ Haley’s wacked out speech last night, would think that she won the Iowa Primary. She didn’t, and she couldn’t even beat a very flawed Ron DeSanctimonious, who’s out of money, and out of hope.”
He also amplified a post claiming she is not eligible to run for president because she does not meet the requirement that presidential candidates have to be a natural-born citizen of the United States. According to the
In her defense, Haley’s campaign released a video, which shows Trump praising her in the past. In a part of the video, Trump was seen thanking the former U.N. ambassador for her work during his administration.
Speaking after her resignation as U.N. ambassador in 2018, Trump said, “Nikki Haley, Ambassador to the United Nations, has been very special to me. She’s done an incredible job. She’s a fantastic person, very importantly — but she also is somebody that gets it. She’s been a very successful, as you know, governor of South Carolina for eight years. And then she did this, and this is possibly even more intense.”
The former governor has also slammed the former president in her campaign speeches in New Hampshire, as she said on Tuesday that “the majority of Americans think that having two 80-year-olds running for president is not what they want.”
However, some anti-Trump individuals do not think she is going hard against the GOP frontrunner, as they hope she will take a fully offensive stance against him.
