‘I don’t know’: Nikki Haley unsure Trump would follow constitution

Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor who lost to Donald Trump in the South Carolina Republican Presidential Primary, has expressed her belief that Trump would not follow the US constitution if elected for a second term as president. Haley, who served as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, has said Trump cannot win a general election but refused to rule out endorsing him and said she will not support Joe Biden. Trump has roundly mocked Haley and demanded she drop out of the race.

Haley, who served as Trump’s last opponent for the Republican presidential nomination, said she believes that the country needs someone that their kids can look up to and be proud of. Trump’s hush-money trial, concerning payments to an adult film star who claimed an extramarital affair, will begin in New York at the end of March. She believes that a country of law and order, freedom, and respecting the value of a taxpayer dollar is needed, and she believes that there is no such thing right now.

Trump has won every primary vote and heads into Super Tuesday on 5 March, when multiple states hold nominating contests, on the brink of securing the nomination. Haley has attacked Trump in harsher terms, but has not come close to winning a state. Trump’s campaign rhetoric has been characteristically dark, including a wish to be a “dictator” on day one in office and promises to take “ultimate and absolute revenge” on his enemies.
