Newt Slams Nikki (Video)

( – In a remarkable blow to Nikki Haley, Donald Trump’s sole remaining competitor for the 2024 GOP nomination, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has blasted her for staying in the race despite losing her fourth state primary contest to the former president by dozens of points.

In a discussion on the Fox News program “Hannity” about the outcomes of Michigan’s GOP primary, where Trump triumphed over Haley by nearly 38 points, host Sean Hannity probed Gingrich on his insights regarding Haley’s persistence in the race.

Hannity wondered whether she is inadvertently causing Trump to allocate funds for campaigning against her.

Gingrich clarified that he doesn’t see Haley’s continued participation as compelling Trump to “spend anything.”

He slammed the rationale behind Haley’s decision to stay in the race despite her losses.

“Well, first of all, I don’t think she is going to force President Trump to spend anything because he’s going to beat her in every single primary in the country. That’s just going to happen,” the former House speaker said.

“Second, the longer she stays in, the more she will alienate Republicans. This theory that she’s hanging around in case something happens to Trump, so she can then be the choice. No MAGA Republican, no Trump delegate is ever going to pick Nikki Haley. They will pick any of the dozen or 50 Republicans who are acceptable, but they aren’t going to pick her,” Gingrich elaborated.

He further reflected on Haley’s significant loss in Nevada, suggesting it as an indicator of her misalignment with the current political climate.

“And you saw that in Nevada, where she lost by 2-1 by none of these candidates. I mean, when none of these candidates beat you by 2-1, there’s a hint that maybe you’re in the wrong game this year. I hope she’ll drop out, I hope she’ll become part of the effort to beat Joe Biden,” Gingrich said.

“I do not think it’s helpful to have her out there saying nasty things about the Republican nominee. And as far as I’m concerned, Donald Trump tonight is the Republican nominee. This is over. The issue is to focus on the general election and why Trump would be a dramatically better president in 2025 than Joe Biden,” he explained further.

Trump’s recent dominance in the Michigan primary follows his substantial victories in Iowa, New Hampshire, and notably in Haley’s native South Carolina, The Daily Caller notes in a report.
