Nikki Haley Turns on Trump: 'I Don’t Feel Like I Know Who He Is Anymore'
Former United Nations ambassador says Trump 'let us down'
Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said Donald Trump failed the Republican Party by contesting the 2020 presidential election.
Haley noted Trump's presidency ended with the riot on Capitol Hill.
She also claimed that Trump would not be politically relevant in the future.
“I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture," Haley said.
"I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far,” she added.
“We need to acknowledge he (Trump) let us down."
"He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him,” she added.
The former diplomat spoke to Politico’s Tim Alberta for a magazine cover story on her political future.
Haley specifically blasted Trump for blaming his loss on Vice President Mike Pence for certifying the 2020 election in Congress
“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she said.
“Mike has been nothing but loyal to that man."
"He’s been nothing but a good friend of that man," Haley continued.
“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.”
Haley said he was “deeply disturbed” by Trump’s actions after the poll.
“Never did I think he would spiral out like this."
"I don’t feel like I know who he is anymore," she added.
"The person that I worked with is not the person that I have watched since the election.”
Haley did, however, say that efforts to impeach Trump were a “waste of time” but added that he was already experiencing the consequences of his actions.
“I think his business is suffering at this point."
"I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have,” she said, failing to offer evidence.
“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.”
