When Nikki Haley served as the United States Ambassador to the U.N., it seemed like the perfect stepping stone to her making her way to the White House.
When she resigned from her post, many of us thought she was doing so to take a break, possibly to rejoin the Trump administration in his second term to catapult her to the top of the presidential ticket in 2024.
That has all changed dramatically in recent weeks, especially now that Trump just blatantly dissed her after Haley requested to meet privately with Trump.
The Falling Out
Haley was still a conservative favorite to run even after Trump lost the election, but that changed dramatically in the days after the election.
Haley never even brought up the irregularities that happened in the 2020 election, and it was noticed.
The tipping point, however, was in Haley being highly critical of Trump after the riot on January 6.
On the riot, she stated, “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture. I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.
“We need to acknowledge he let us down.
“He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him.”
After her comments were made, Haley accused the media of trying to divide conservatives, basically saying it was an all-or-nothing approach when it came to Trump.
In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, she stated, “The media playbook starts with the demand that everyone pick sides about Donald Trump—either love or hate everything about him.”
She added, “People feel strongly about Mr. Trump, but we can acknowledge reality.
“People on the right can find fault with Trump actions, including on Jan. 6.
“Right or left, when people make these distinctions, they’re not trying to have it both ways. They’re using their brains.”
Haley then requested a meeting at Mar-a-Lago with Trump to clean things up, but Trump did not grant the request.
In the process, he probably ended any chances Haley had of getting grip for the 2024 campaign.
Recent polls support that conclusion, as Haley is now only getting about six percent support among likely Republican voters.
