Early on in the Republican primary season, the candidates running against Donald Trump did everything they could to avoid insulting the former President. As the field dwindled, Nikki Haley and Ron DeSantis went on the attack. It didn't work for the Florida Governor who dropped out after losing in Iowa.
Nikki Haley, though, has ramped up her attacks. And she has done after Trump's main weakness, his age and his erratic behavior. During a Friday morning appearance on Fox News, the former South Carolina Governor went for the jugular, dismissing the former President as 'unhinged.'
Haley told Bill Hemmer and Dana Perino, "Let’s look at the last 48 hours, Dana. I mean, first of all, you had election night. Trump gets on stage, he throws an absolute temper tantrum talking about revenge, but he says nothing about the American people, nothing about what he’s going to do about the wasteful spending that he encouraged and allowed the Republicans and Democrats to do in his term."
The candidate continued, "He said nothing about how he’s going to secure the border and what he’s going to do differently that he didn’t do when he was president. Before, he said nothing about how he’s going to prevent war. Then he goes and says that he’s going to ban anyone from MAGA that donates to me."
"That’s a president who’s supposed to serve every person in America, and you’re deciding that you’re going to have a club and actually ban people from being in and out of your club. And then he goes and encourages the members of the RNC and tries to push them into saying that he’s the nominee in the race? I mean, they got so much pushback that he had to backtrack. He’s totally unhinged."
