After taking the crown in the New Hampshire GOP presidential primary, former President Donald Trump didn’t hesitate to give fellow candidate Nikki Haley a playful roast. Trump threw jabs at Haley, poking fun at her post-primary speech and calling her out for acting like a victor when in fact, she ended up on the losing end. Trump didn’t hold back, labeling Haley as an “imposter” for her optimistic words after the New Hampshire primary results came in, in which he claimed she “claimed a victory.” Trump confidently stated that Haley had a “very bad night” and failed miserably, asserting that her speech reflected a deep-rooted denial of her loss.
As the New York Times reported, Trump seized the primary win with a whopping 54.4 percent of the vote, leaving Haley trailing at 43.3 percent. However, it’s crucial to note that New Hampshire allows independent voters to participate in any primary, which could have influenced the outcome. According to exit polling, Trump triumphed over Haley among registered Republicans by a monumental 74 percent to 25 percent.

Trump also warned about the potential legal battles that could be aimed at Haley if she were to secure the GOP nomination or any other Republican challenging the Biden administration. He expressed his certainty that Haley would be the subject of rapid investigation, hinting at being privy to five compelling reasons for such scrutiny. Trump didn’t mince words and hammered home the point that Haley’s triumph would undoubtedly prompt swift legal scrutiny and emphasized the inevitability of her being under investigation in a heartbeat.
Not one to hold back, Trump took to his own social media platform, Truth Social, to deliver an extra serving of ridicule directed at Haley. He adamantly stated that Haley had suffered “CRUSHING DEFEATS” in both Iowa and New Hampshire, labeling her as “Nikki ‘Birdbrain’ Haley” and pointing out her dismal third-place finish in Iowa. His tone changed, however, in a post-primary interview with Fox News, where he spoke on his anticipation to face off against what he dubbed the “worst president in the history of our country” and urged Haley to gracefully bow out of the race to avoid squandering resources that could be put to better use against Biden.
Despite Trump’s stern advice, Haley affirmed her determination to soldier on and dismissed the idea of dropping out of the race. Trump emphasized the GOP’s cohesiveness, except for Haley, and declared the party’s unified front in readiness to tackle the upcoming election.
