In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Trump refuses to host Nikki Haley at Mar-a-Lago

Well, in January, she dismissed him as a has-been. Obviously, she is having second thoughts. Going to Mar-a-Lago would have been seen as Trump giving her his blessing. He refused to give it.

According to Politico:

Nikki Haley reached out to former President DONALD TRUMP on Wednesday to request a sit-down at Mar-a-Lago, but a source familiar tells Playbook that he turned her down. The two haven’t spoken since the insurrection on Jan. 6, when Haley blasted Trump for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol.

The snub comes on the heels of Tim Alberta’s deep dive in POLITICO Magazine last week on Haley’s presidential ambitions and how she’s trying to have it both ways with Trump.

Channeling George Costanza in mid-December, Haley refused to confront Trump over his election lies because he believed they were true. “I understand the president. I understand that genuinely, to his core, he believes he was wronged,” Haley told Alberta. “This is not him making it up.”

After Jan. 6, Haley changed her tune.

“I think he’s going to find himself further and further isolated,” Haley said of the defeated president. “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.”

And: “I don’t think he’s going to be in the picture,” she said, matter-of-factly. “I don’t think he can. He’s fallen so far.”

Haley tried to recover Thursday with a damage-control op-ed in the WSJ wrapped in blame-the-media rhetoric. But Trump, apparently, isn’t having it.

  1. Trump supporters liked her, thought she did a great job at the UN for all of us.
    Why she fell into the ‘hate Trump’ trap is a mystery. She’s no naive new-comer to politics, and her comments were toxic.

  2. Good! She doesn’t deserve his blessings. Sorry, Nikki!, like Jeb!, you’re not going to be President. Talk about someone who’s gonna be isolated…

  3. I do like Nikki Haley. I hope she does become President one day. But I am with SRDEM65 – it’s mystifying why she’s gone anti-Trump. I also understand President Trump’s attitude, he doesn’t forgive those who betray him or his family. At least, not easily.

  4. Folks, please do not be fooled by a woman who changes her tune by holding her finger in the air each morning. She is proven unreliable by her own words. Nikki Haley was one of the original self-described “Never-Trumpers”. Running her own quiet campaign for the Vice Presidency in 2016, she fronted other self-described “Republicans” in denouncing Donald Trump’s candidacy. It didn’t do her any good – nor did her endorsements help first Rubio and then Cruz: they weren’t interested in her either.

    After Trump won handily, he offered her the chance of a lifetime as Ambassador to the United Nations. After only a year and a half in the job, she quit. Then she spent the next couple of years “disapproving” of the President whenever she was asked.

    Her positions look like a constant tennis match : back and forth, back and forth, from one day to the next. She is not “presidential timber”, unless people want a more attractive version of Joe Biden.

  5. Gov. Haley is the tone deaf one here. No one who goes against president Trump has a future in the Republican Party. Chances are Donald Trump will be the nominee in 2024 and we’re all going to vote for him because he was a great president. Haley on the other hand just lost my future vote regardless of whether Trump runs again. DeSantis is a better choice.
