Former Gov. Nikki Haley declared on Monday on CNN’s “The Lead” that she will beat former President Donald Trump for the Republican party nomination.
Anchor Jake Tapper said:
“So obviously you’re running in South Carolina and you’ve told me that you plan to be around well obviously you want to be the nominee and then the president, but, but you’re going to be around at least until super Tuesday.”
“If the unthinkable happens in your view and you do not win will it be difficult to Support Trump as the Republican Party’s nominee, given what you think about him quite obviously.”
“Well, first, I think that you need to know that I am going to beat President Trump. But you should ask him if it’ll be difficult for him to support me?”
“He didn’t sign the GOP pledge in 2016. I don’t think and he certainly not signing it now. So I am I’m sure he would say no.”
“But but I guess you’re not going to commit to voting for him if he becomes the nominee?”
“What I’m saying is what I said from the very beginning when there were 14 candidates on the stage, that any one of the 14 would be better than Joe Biden.”
Donald Trump summed up why Haley is refusing to drop out of the race:
“The radical left Democrats want Nikki Haley because they know that she’s easy to beat.”

On Monday, conservatives called on Haley to end her quest for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination and support former President Donald Trump.
The Daily Fetched reported:
Haley has gone 0-4 in the first series of primaries, and trails Trump by a wide margin in South Carolina, where she served as governor.
The Washington Examiner reported:
“A group of 12 prominent conservatives, including a former governor, media executives, and a former U.S. attorney general.”
The letter from the Conservatives reads:
“While you have waged a spirited campaign for the 2024 Republican Party nomination, it is clear you cannot win the GOP nomination.”
“We applaud your efforts, but your candidacy is over.”
