Haley Claims She’s No Longer Bound to RNC Pledge

(UnitedVoice.com) – Former Ambassador Nikki Haley (R) is getting walloped by her former boss, Donald Trump, in the Republican primary. Super Tuesday proved how poor her campaign strategy was. In a recent interview, the former South Carolina governor said she isn’t bound by the Republican National Committee’s (RNC) pledge any longer.

During an interview with NBC’s “Meet the Press” on March 3, Haley said she isn’t obligated to endorse Trump if he secures the delegates necessary to win the primary. She said that she would “make what decision [she] want[s] to make.” She went on to say the RNC of today isn’t the same as the RNC before. She also claimed she’s always worried about Trump leading the nation.

Ironically, Haley served as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations during his first term. She never broke from the former president or criticized his leadership while serving in that role. In fact, in her resignation letter, she called it an “honor” to work for him — not exactly the words of someone concerned about him leading the country.

Moderator Kristen Welker asked if Haley was taking the “possibility of endorsing [Trump] off the table at this point?”

Haley responded that she doesn’t think about whether to endorse Trump. She said that when Welker talks about the possibility of an endorsement, it implies that she’s going to lose the primary. The former governor explained that she doesn’t think that way. Haley said that when someone is in a race, they just think about moving forward and winning.

Welker continued to hammer Haley, but the former governor wasn’t falling into the trap. She told the NBC host that she would answer the question as soon as they ask Trump if he’s going to support her if he loses.

Haley had previously said she would support the former president because she didn’t want a “President Kamala Harris.”

On Wednesday, March 6, Haley officially suspended her presidential run, congratulating Donald Trump and wishing him well.
