(FiveNation.com)- Nikki Haley might have painted herself as a Trump advocate during President Donald Trump’s first term, but her most recent comments have pitted her firmly against the Make America Great Again agenda and movement.
During an interview with Politico Magazine, the former United Nations ambassador distanced herself from the former president and indicated that she believes he has “fallen so far” and won’t run for office again.
“He’s not going to run for federal office again,” Haley told the magazine.
On the top of former President Donald Trump spending the next four years preparing for another shot at the White House, she responded, “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.”
Anybody with eyes and ears already knows that Haley is gearing up for her own run in 2024. And who would want to compete against former President Donald Trump?
Incredibly, Haley then suggested that the former president played a part in the Capitol Hill riots – a narrative spun by Democrats to justify the impeachment hearings designed to stop him from running for office again.
“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said. “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.”
So, Nikki Haley definitely won’t be the GOP nominee in 2024, then…
Haley also attacked former President Trump for pressuring then-Vice President Mike Pence to step in when Congress was preparing to certify the Electoral College votes despite overwhelming evidence of misconduct and fraud in the 2020 election.
“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she said. “Mike has been nothing but loyal to that man. He’s been nothing but a good friend to that man…I am so disappointed in the fact that despite the loyalty and the friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him.”
Haley even said she was “disgusted by it.”
Former President Donald Trump and Nikki Haley haven’t spoken since January 6 and it looks like the next time they might speak could be the 2024 GOP presidential primary debates.
Assuming Trump decides to run again.
