WHO CARES? Nikki Haley says she’ll vote TRUMP over Biden
05/24/2024 // Ramon Tomey // Views

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she'll vote former President Donald Trump – her erstwhile boss – over incumbent President Joe Biden.

She made the remarks during a May 22 event at the Washington, D.C.-based conservative think tank Hudson Institute. "As a voter, I put my priorities on a president who's going to have the backs of our allies and hold our enemies to account; who would secure the border, no more excuses. A president who would support capitalism and freedom, [and] a president who understands we need less debt – not more debt," Haley said.

"Trump has not been perfect on these policies – I've made that clear, many, many times. But Biden has been a catastrophe. So, I will be voting for Trump."

Haley was the last major candidate standing between Trump and the Republican presidential nomination, remaining adamant even as Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy threw in the towel.  The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations dropped out of the race following her dismal Super Tuesday results, winning only one primary of the 16 held that day.

"Having said that, I stand by what I said in my suspension speech. Trump would be smart to reach out to the millions of people who voted for me and continue to support me, and not assume that they're just going to be with him. And I genuinely hope he does that," Haley continued.

During her March 6 withdrawal speech a day after her Super Tuesday loss, the former governor admitted that "in all likelihood, Trump will be the [GOP] nominee" when the Republican National Convention meets in July. Haley said at the time: "It is now up to Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him."

Both Trump and Biden gunning for Haley supporters

For his part, Trump himself brushed off the results. He insisted that supporters of his former rival will flock to him against Biden when Americans head to polling places in the November general election.

"She got very few voters," Trump said earlier this month. "And those voters are all coming to me. You may have a lot of Democrats in there because they have a very tricky little system. But those voters are coming to me."

Even the Biden campaign has also made a move to court Haley voters disillusioned with the former president's bid. The incumbent president said in March: "Trump made it clear he doesn't want Haley's supporters. I want to be clear – there is a place for them in my campaign."

Michael Tyler, communications director for the Biden-Harris campaign, addressed GOP voters following Haley's announcement of her withdrawal in March. According to him, "nothing has changed" for those voters who continue to cast primary protest votes "and care deeply about the future of our democracy, standing strong with our allies against foreign adversaries, and working across the aisle to get things done for the American people – while also rejecting the chaos, division and violence that Trump embodies."

"Haley's remarks at the institute come as she continued to be a significant presence in Republican presidential primary results despite her exit from the race, as some in the GOP voice their frustration with Trump through protest votes," The Hill stated. The former South Carolina governor joined the think tank as its Walter P. Stern chair in April.

According to the outlet, Haley picked up 20 percent of the vote in Maryland's GOP primary and 18 percent in Nebraska. She also garnered almost 22 percent of the vote in Indiana's GOP primary. Haley also received more than 100,000 votes in the Arizona and Pennsylvania GOP primaries – both key battleground states.
