(TheRedWire.com) – Nikki Haley, who previously served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, faced critical comments from ex-President Donald Trump following her performance in the New Hampshire primary election. After securing a significant victory in New Hampshire, Trump, in his celebratory speech, took the opportunity to target Haley, particularly referencing her earlier concession speech that evening. Haley’s team responded by characterizing Trump’s remarks as a display of uncontrollable anger.
A spokesperson for Haley, Nachama Soloveichik, conveyed a message contrasting the paths offered by Trump and Haley. Soloveichik suggested that Trump’s approach was one of chaos and instability, reminiscent of his “Make America Great Again” slogan, but with a twist, implying a return to a state of disorder. In contrast, Haley’s vision was portrayed as a return to normalcy and stability. The spokesperson criticized both Trump and current President Joe Biden for being engrossed in their personal dramas and grievances, asserting that the American public desires a leader who prioritizes critical issues such as border security, addressing China’s influence, and tackling inflation—a situation they believe both Trump and Biden have contributed to.
Trump, who garnered approximately 54% of the vote in the New Hampshire primary, outperformed Haley by a significant margin. Despite this, Haley, in her speech, emphasized the ongoing nature of the race, indicating that the New Hampshire primary was just the beginning and that there were many more states to compete in.
During his victory speech, Trump directly challenged Haley’s optimistic interpretation of her performance, bluntly dismissing her remarks and questioning her portrayal of the election results as a positive outcome for her campaign.
Haley, who previously served as the Governor of South Carolina, remains committed to continuing her campaign at least until the primary in her home state, scheduled for the end of February. However, her finish in the New Hampshire primary has sparked discussions about the future direction and viability of her campaign efforts.
