Nikki Haley Turns On Trump: “We Should Have Never Followed Him”

Nikki Haley

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted former President Donald Trump saying that he “let us down.”

During an exclusive interview with Politico, Haley, who is positioning herself for a 2024 presidential run, said Trump “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.”

Why has Haley decided to publicize her views about Trump in the middle of the sham impeachment “trial”?

RFAngle reports: Haley’s scathing remarks stem from her anger at Trump for not conceding the 2020 election to President Joe Biden. She told Politico that she has not spoken to the former president since the riot on Jan. 6. Part of her anger stems from Trump’s comments about former Vice President Mike Pence.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” Haley said. “Mike [Pence] has been nothing but loyal to that man. He’s been nothing but a good friend of that man. … I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

Haley’s comments come as Trump’s legal team is set to defend him Friday during his second Senate impeachment trial. Haley claimed that this impeachment was a “waste of time,” but did assert Trump will never run for office again.

“I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture,” she said. “I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.”

Haley gave the keynote speech to the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting shortly after Jan. 6, where she first hinted at breaking from Trump.

“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,” Haley reportedly said. “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.”

Politico claims Haley is positioning herself for a 2024 presidential run. She recently announced a new political action committee named after her Stand for America advocacy group.

Haley urged the GOP to move on from Trump so they can go back to being a “good, valuable, effective party.”
