Left-Wing Media Scolds Nikki Haley for Endorsing Trump

Despite her insistence as a never-Trumper, former Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley declared her support for President Trump this week. Throughout the Republican primary, Haley positioned herself as an ardent adversary of President Trump.

A lot of Republican politicians have surrendered to it. … Of course, many of the same politicians who now publicly embrace Trump privately dread him. They know what a disaster he’s been and will continue to be for our party. They’re just too afraid to say it out loud,” said Haley on the campaign trail.

Haley also criticized Trump’s allegiance to the Constitution, and indicated that he is not someone “our kids can look up to.” 

No one should be surprised by this move, however. Haley has constantly changed her affiliations throughout her political career to serve her interests. She cozied up to Trump to acquire a cabinet position, but when it was unpopular to support the president in the wake of the 2020 election, she distanced herself.

The left primarily saw Haley as a subversive actor within the Republican party, and they are clearly disappointed with her recent pivot. Particularly, the hosts of The View expressed their discontent. 

“If someone attacked my intelligence, my family, my marriage, and American democracy, I probably wouldn’t then go back and support them,” said host Alyssa Griffin. Host Sunny Hostin indicated that Haley is a “flip-flopper” and cannot be trusted. The View hosts collectively declared their discontent with the Republican party, which is firmly pro-Trump.

Haley received hostility from many news outlets. According to The Washington Post, “her candidacy became a sort of proxy for the broader fight against Trump.” The end of her candidacy and her capitulation to President Trump signals another defeat for the never-Trump movement, which continues to weaken each election cycle.
