Nikki Haley Drops Out, Breaks Pledge To Endorse Trump

Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has officially announced the end of her failed presidential campaign after losing on Super Tuesday by massive margins to former president and current GOP primary frontrunner Donald Trump.

Haley did end up winning two races in the primary. She came in first place in the Washington, D.C., swamp last week where only approximately 26,000 registered Republicans exist out of a population of over 700,000 people, and only a little over 1,200 voted for Haley.

She also won in Vermont, which has an open primary that allows Democrats to vote for GOP candidates.

Meanwhile, Trump dominated 14 out of the 15 races on Super Tuesday.

Many speculated that Haley would finally be dropping out after these devastating losses, and they were correct.

The former South Carolina governor gave a speech on Wednesday morning announcing that she was suspending her campaign. However, she refused to honor the Republican National Committee’s “Beat Biden” pledge that she signed in order to appear on the primary debate stage, which included a vow to endorse whoever ended up being the GOP nominee.

“In all likelihood, Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee when our party convention meets in July,” Haley told the crowd. “I congratulate him and wish him well. I wish anyone well who would be America’s president. Our country is too precious to let our differences divide us. I have always been a conservative Republican and always supported the Republican nominee. But on this question, as she did on so many others, Margaret Thatcher provided some good advice, when she said, ‘never just follow the crowd, always make up your own mind.’”

“It is now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him,” she added. “And I hope he does that. At its best, politics is about bringing people into your cause, not turning them away. And our conservative cause badly needs more people. This is now his time for choosing.”

Of course, Haley did not forget to include a plea for continued foreign intervention — warning of the “moral imperative” for the U.S. to support its allies around the world, likely referring to her ardent support for sending billions of taxpayer dollars to fund the never-ending war in Ukraine.

Unsurprisingly, soon after Haley dropped out of the race, a group emerged that calls themselves “Nikki Haley Supporters for Biden” — proving the point made by numerous conservatives that Haley was largely propped up by Democrats seeking to sabotage Trump.

“I warned you Nikki Haley’s entire operation was a Democrat operation to get Joe Biden re-elected and to try to hurt Trump. Do you hear me now?” wrote “Catturd,” one of the most prominent Trump supporters on X, formerly known as Twitter.
