Trump Says Haley Doesn’t Know ‘How To Get Out’

Former President Donald Trump said that the only reason former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is still in the presidential race is because she doesn’t know how to get out.

During a town hall event on Tuesday night, the GOP presidential candidate was asked about his thoughts on why she is not dropping out of the race, he stated, “I don’t think she knows how to get out, actually. I really don’t. She did terribly in New Hampshire. She got — the only votes she got was from Democrats.”

He then went on to say that Haley’s major campaign donors are backing her because she’s their way of hurting his chances of winning the 2024 presidential election.

“Well, they’re trying to hurt me because of the general election, so the Democrats are giving her money and she’s playing into the game, and I think she just can’t get herself to get out. She’s doing poorly in the polls. Look, if she was doing well, I’d understand it,” he stated.

“But she’s doing very poorly,” she added. “She lost in record numbers in Iowa, record numbers in New Hampshire. Nevada. ‘No Name’ beat [her].”

Trump also addressed earlier comments by Haley that she has put down the speculation about her running to be Trump’s vice president.

Asked whether he agreed that Haley “settled” the question as she claimed, Trump stated, “Well, I settled it about three months ago. She’s not working. She’s here. She’s down by 30-35 points. And everybody knows her. You’re not supposed to lose your home state, shouldn’t happen anyway. And she’s losing it bigly, big. … But we’re gonna really do a job, I think that as you know, when we went to Iowa, we got the biggest margin in the history of the caucus, the biggest.”

Before the town hall event, Haley held a press conference in which she reiterated her commitment to staying in the race despite trailing far behind Trump in the polls.

“They say…that my path to victory is slim. They point to the primary polls and say I’m only delaying the inevitable,” she stated, adding that she refuses to quit and will be staying even if she does not win the South Carolina primary on Feb. 24.
