Trump vows to bar any Nikki Haley donors from 'MAGA camp'

 January 25, 2024

In the wake of Donald Trump's victory in New Hampshire against Nikki Haley, the former president and others are ramping up pressure on the former South Carolina governor to drop out.

According to Yahoo, in a recent Truth Social post, Trump went as far as vowing to blacklist any Haley donors from "MAGA camp."

The former president hammered Haley in the post, using the nickname "birdbrain" and insisting that the race is over and that she should drop out so the party can rally behind him as he focuses his sights on President Joe Biden.

"Nikki 'Birdbrain' Haley is very bad for the Republican Party and, indeed, our Country. Her False Statements, Derogatory Comments, and Humiliating Public Loss, is demeaning to True American Patriots. Her anger should be aimed at her Third Rate Political Consultants and, more importantly, Crooked Joe Biden and those that are destroying our Country - NOT THE PEOPLE WHO WILL SAVE IT," Trump wrote.

Trump added, "I knew Nikki well, she was average at best, is not the one to take on World Leaders, and she never did. That was up to me, and that is why they respected the United States. When I ran for Office and won, I noticed that the losing Candidate’s 'Donors' would immediately come to me, and want to 'help out.'"

"This is standard in Politics, but no longer with me. Anybody that makes a 'Contribution' to Birdbrain, from this moment forth, will be permanently barred from the MAGA camp. We don’t want them, and will not accept them, because we Put America First, and ALWAYS WILL!" the former president continued.

Haley, in the wake of her loss to Trump in the New Hampshire primary, in which she even had the support of many of the state's Democratic voters, has experienced intense pressure to drop out of the race in the days after the primary.

Though she believes she can win her home state, she couldn't even manage to land the endorsement of Sen. Tim Scott, a former GOP presidential rival who endorsed Trump last week.

The polls for South Carolina aren't in Haley's favor whatsoever. A recent report from the Wall Street Journal indicated that she trails Trump by double digits -- up to 30 points -- in the Palmetto State.

Many believe that Haley, known as more of an establishment-type Republican, is simply wasting donor money and time at this stage of the game.

So far, Trump's major opponents who've dropped out have all endorsed him and rallied behind his campaign to unseat Biden in November.

Notably, Haley won't even have a chance to score any delegates in the upcoming Nevada caucuses, as she opted to run in the state primary, which won't be able to issue delegates.

Haley's campaign is well overcooked, and it's embarrassing at this point. She needs to drop out to save a shred of grace.
