(TargetLiberty.org) – On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump used his victory speech in New Hampshire to call out his Republican primary rival Nikki Haley stating that Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) has not endorsed her in the presidential race.
Trump said in reference to Scott that Haley had been the one to appoint him and that he had been a senator in her state. He proceeded to allege that Scott likely really hated her.
Scott had withdrawn from the presidential race in November, and over the weekend officially endorsed Trump in the presidential race. This has resulted in him being heavily criticized by many of Haley’s close allies. Despite the criticisms, Scott has continued to support the former president.
Trump continues to be the frontrunner in the presidential race and even mocked Haley during her speech after the primary election where she had argued that the race was not yet over. Trump, however, claimed that the night was “very bad” for Haley and that she should not be allowed to just get away with this type of statements.
During an interview with Fox News Digital Trump also pushed for Haley to suspend her presidential campaign. He added that if she does not they are going to keep wasting money in the primary race instead of using that money to defeat Biden.
The Haley campaign proceeded to respond to Trump’s comments stating that his margins in the two states had not been a “ringing endorsement.” Haley further argued that while the election on Tuesday was the first it was not the “last in the nation.”
