Haley said, “We need to acknowledge he let us down.”
“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,” she said.
"Haley told me she cannot recall a time in which she wasn’t aware of being different. She is still animated by the stories of her childhood. How teachers made her play Pocahontas in the Thanksgiving pageant." https://t.co/QEAOQqhR8t

“I think he’s going to find himself further and further isolated,” Haley said.
“I think his business is suffering at this point. I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him.”
“I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

“Fifty-three percent of Republicans said they would vote for Trump if the primary were held today,” Politico reported.
“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” Haley said. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside.”
From The Western Journal:
Haley came in at just 6 percent, meaning she would need to make major political headway to get through the Republican primaries.
Since the Capitol incursion, Haley has not had an entirely solid position on Trump. At some points, she has said the GOP was wrong to follow him.
At others, she has acknowledged his positive impact, saying the Republican Party shouldn’t go back to the way it was before Trump’s presidency.
