Haley Celebrates Jury’s Decision In Trump Defamation Case

Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley stepped up her attacks on frontrunning former President Donald Trump in a surprising manner. She told NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday that she had faith in the jury that awarded accuser E. Jean Carroll a staggering $83.3 million.

Haley, despite signing the GOP pledge to support the eventual nominee, ignored evidence that the alleged incident never even happened.

Instead, the former South Carolina governor told host Kristen Welker that she trusted the jury. “I think they made their decision based on the evidence.”

Incredibly, Haley is utilizing the left’s legal attacks on Trump to attempt to convince voters that she is the better choice in 2024. “Donald Trump wants to be the presumptive Republican nominee and we’re talking about $83 million in damages.”

According to Haley, this is suppressing the conversation about the border crisis and inflation.

Turns out that those who said Haley would make a poor vice presidential selection for Trump are wholly vindicated. The candidate further blasted the 45th president to NBC News by claiming he surrounds himself with “chaos.”

Haley declared that “we can’t be a country in disarray, and have a world on fire and be in chaos. I do think that these court cases are distracting not just to the American people but to him himself, which is keeping him from talking about what really matters.”

She then added, “That’s exactly why I don’t think he should be president.”

Haley stopped short, however, of aligning with the shrill Democratic calls for Trump to be erased from the 2024 race. “I don’t think he should be taken off the ballot. I think the American people will decide if he’s disqualifying or not. We don’t do that Kristen, in America.”

Many Republicans did not take kindly to the attack Haley unleashed on the frontrunner. Trump advisor Jason Miller posted a Semafor article on X, formerly Twitter, headlined “Nikki Haley Crosses the Rubicon.”

It detailed her explosive interview with “Meet the Press.”

Miller expressed his belief that Haley effectively ended her political career by siding with the jury against the former president. “There is no point of return. Haley is politically finished for ‘24, ‘28, forever.”
