Following the Jan. 6 riot, Nikki Haley blasted Trump for inciting his supporters to storm the Capitol.
In remarks published by Politico, Haley was quoted:
“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 eagerly anticipated his political demise and claimed that he will never run for federal office again:
“He’s not going to run for federal office again,”
“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.”
“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.”
However, it all changed on Sunday after Trump’s rip roaring return to CPAC in his first speech since leaving office. Haley praised President Trump.
Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration and what the party needs to unite behind moving forward. The liberal media wants a GOP civil war. Not gonna happen.

You may remember that Haley’s backstabbing of Trump didn’t go down too well as Trump quickly rejected her request for a personal meeting with him at Mar-a-Lago. That did not help her presidential aspirations and she knows it.
