“Yes,” Haley, the former Republican governor of South Carolina, said in response to a question from The Associated Press during a news conference at South Carolina State University when asked if she would support another White House bid from Trump. Haley explained that she would not launch her own presidential campaign “if President Trump ran, and I would talk to him about it.”
“That’s something that we’ll have a conversation about at some point, if that decision is something that has to be made,” she said.
Asked how Trump should then be held accountable, Haley replied at the time, “I think he’s going to find himself further and further isolated.”
“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,” she told Politico. “I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”
But Haley struck a different tone about Trump on Monday, specifically defending his recent comments about top Republican leaders.
“I think former President Trump’s always been opinionated,” Haley said at the news conference when asked about Trump’s comments.
“Just because he left being president, that’s not going to stop. But I think what he also talked about were all the successes that he had in the administration. And I think that’s what Republicans are uniting on.”
