Haley Dodges Big Question About Trump (Video)

(5MinNewsBreak.com) – In a new twist in the largely decided race for the 2024 Republican nomination, Donald Trump’s sole still surviving competitor, Nikki Haley, has refused to say if she would back the former president if he officially becomes the GOP nominee.

In an ABC interview on Sunday, Haley refrained from explicitly stating her support for former President Trump should he secure the party’s nomination.

At the initial 2024 GOP primary debate, Haley, along with most candidates, indicated her willingness to support Trump if he were nominated, regardless of the Democrat-led charges against him. This commitment was a precondition for debate participation.

Subsequently, Haley has positioned herself as Trump’s principal Republican opponent.

When she was asked by ABC News’s Jonathan Karl about her adherence to the earlier pledge—especially after she had condemned Trump’s NATO comments and branded him as “unhinged” and “unfit” for the presidency—Haley insisted she would win the nomination.

“I mean, keep in mind, I am running against him for a reason. I’m running against him because… I don’t think he’s the right person at the right time. I don’t think he should be president. The last thing on my mind is who I’m going to support. The only thing on my mind is how we’re going to win this,” she remarked.

Haley further argued against Trump’s potential nomination, suggesting it would lead to a loss in the election and the presidency of Kamala Harris.

“If Donald Trump is the nominee for the Republican Party, he will not win. Every poll shows that. He will not win, and we will have a president Kamala Harris. I’m not going to allow that to happen. I’m not stopping. I’m not going anywhere. We’re going to do this for the long haul. And we’re going to finish it,” the former US ambassador declared.

When pressed on whether her stance meant she would not endorse Trump as the nominee, Haley evasively replied about her focus on winning the nomination herself, suggesting support questions could be addressed later.

“That means I’m going to run and I’m going to win, and y’all can talk about support later. Right now you can ask him if he’s going to support me when I’m the nominee,” she answered.
