Former Rival Nikki Haley Announces Support For Trump In General Election, Urges Outreach To Her Supporters

In a surprising turn of events, Nikki Haley, former U.N. ambassador and once a fierce rival of Donald Trump during the Republican primary, publicly announced her intention to vote for him in the upcoming general election.

However, Haley emphasized that Trump still has work to do in order to win over her supporters who stood by her side throughout the primary campaign.

During an event at the esteemed Hudson Institute in Washington, Nikki Haley confidently stated, “I will be voting for Trump.” Yet, she remained steadfast in her previous statements, standing by her suspension speech.

She urged Trump to recognize the millions of people who had voted for her and continue to offer their unwavering support. She expressed hope that Trump would reach out to them and not take their allegiance for granted.

These remarks, made in Haley’s first public appearance since stepping away from the race, signify the Republican Party’s near-complete consolidation of support behind Trump, even from those who once perceived him as a threat.

Two months ago, Haley suspended her own bid for the GOP nomination, refraining from endorsing Trump immediately. She had previously criticized him for causing turmoil and undermining vital U.S. alliances abroad.

Additionally, she openly questioned whether Trump, at the age of 77, was fit for another presidential term. In response, Trump resorted to mocking Nikki Haley with the moniker “Birdbrain,” although he toned down those attacks once he secured enough delegates to become the presumptive Republican nominee in March.

As of now, Trump’s campaign has yet to respond to Haley’s announcement.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s campaign has been diligently working to win over Haley’s supporters, recognizing them as valuable swing voters. In an effort to do so, Biden’s team is discreetly organizing a Republicans for Biden group.

This initiative will include dedicated staff members who will focus on reaching out to the hundreds of thousands of Haley supporters in key battleground states. These details were shared by insiders familiar with the plans but not authorized to discuss them publicly.

Despite Haley’s endorsement of Trump, the Biden campaign made it clear that they will continue their efforts to court those who backed her in the Republican primaries.

Michael Tyler, the campaign’s communications director, emphasized that millions of Republican voters remain committed to casting their ballots against Trump.

They prioritize safeguarding democracy, standing strong with allies against foreign adversaries, and seeking bipartisan collaboration for the betterment of the American people.

Tyler concluded by stating that President Biden is the only candidate who shares these values and is earnestly working every day to earn their support.
