(FiveNation.com)- Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley’s hopes of becoming president were dashed in recent days following reports that donors are dropping the Republican after she publicly claimed that former President Donald Trump “let down” the GOP.
Steve Bannon’s War Room revealed how South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham recently attempted to introduce Haley to big political donors, but that his efforts weren’t panning out. The conservative podcast and website revealed that the former UN ambassador’s decision to break from the Make America Great Again agenda following the January 6 riots on Capitol Hill were coming back to haunt her.
Speaking to the War Room, Big Data Poll director Richard Baris said that “Lindsey Graham is making this pitch for Nikki Haley and he’s calling around to people to ask if they will meet with her.”
“These donors are angry and they do not want to sit down with Nikki Haley,” he added.
Baris joked, “I guess she forgot to mention this to Politico.”
Haley recently gave an interview to Politico, which was published last Friday, in which she said that Republicans should not have followed President Donald Trump when he began a campaign to ensure election integrity following the November 2020 vote.
“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.”
Haley has long been rumored to be planning a run for president. She appeared to try and warn off former President Donald Trump from running again and challenging her in the next presidential primaries, presumptively stating that Trump is “not going to run for federal office again.”
“I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture,” she said.
But Haley isn’t winning supporters on either side of the Trump debate, even in her own party.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger, who voted to impeach former President Donald Trump, said Haley could not “play both sides anymore.”
You can’t play both sides anymore Governor. Pick Country First or Trump First. https://t.co/FTHYYDQKAR

“Pick Country First or Trump First,” he added.
Without the support of either wing of the party, and with donors giving her the boot, Haley’s rumored 2024 run looks to be dead on arrival.
Just like the second Trump impeachment hearing.
