Nikki Haley chastised former President Donald Trump regarding his behavior in his last weeks in office, according to The Daily Wire.
Haley said that she was “disgusted” by what Trump said to former VP Mike Pence on Jan. 6.
Trump urged Pence to “do the right thing” and refuse to certify the election results.
Pence said that he lacked the constitutional authority to do such a thing.
Trump eviscerated Pence via Twitter, “Mike Pence didn’t have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our Country and our Constitution.”
Haley said, “Fast forward, I’m watching the television the morning of the 6th and I see Don Junior get up there,” she said, reciting the president’s son’s calls to action against Republican leaders, closing her eyes as if reimagining the scene. “And then I hear the president get up there and go off on Pence. I literally was so triggered, I had to turn it off. I mean, Jon [Lerner] texted me something and I said, ‘I can’t. I can’t watch it. I can’t watch it,’ because I felt the same thing. Somebody is going to hear that, and bad things will happen.”
“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” Haley said, as she leaned forward in emphasis. “Mike has been nothing but loyal to that man. He’s been nothing but a good friend of that man. … I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”
“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” Haley said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”
