Haley is reaching is hard as she can for the Republican nomination. But she’s just grasping at straws now.

And Trump and Tim Scott humiliated Nikki Haley with a huge election announcement.

Former President Donald Trump claimed that Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina despises Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley because he did not support her, despite the fact that they are from the same state.

“Did you ever think that she actually appointed you, Tim?” Mr. Trump remarked in a speech Tuesday following his victory in the New Hampshire Republican primary.

“And you’re the senator of her state. You must really hate her.”

His remark alluded to Mr. Scott halting his own presidential campaign in November and backing Mr. Trump over the weekend. Ms. Haley is the former governor of South Carolina.

Mr. Scott was standing behind Mr. Trump when the former President spoke.

Scott then approached the microphone, and Trump shouted, “Uh-oh!”

“I just love you!” Scott said, prompting more hilarity from the audience!

“That’s why he’s a great politician!” Trump joked.

Ms. Haley’s campaign responded with a statement noting that “Donald Trump barely received half of the vote” in Iowa and New Hampshire.

“Not exactly a ringing endorsement for a former president demanding a coronation,” Haley campaign director Nachama Soloveichik explained.

Ms. Haley stated before the primary results that she would not withdraw if she lost the Granite State.

Mr. Trump won the first-in-the-nation New Hampshire primary on Tuesday with nearly 54.5 percent of the vote, while Ms. Haley received approximately 43.2%.

He also won by a larger margin in the Iowa caucuses last week.

The next primary will be held in Ms. Haley’s home state of South Carolina on February 24.

But, unfortunately for Haley, she has an even worse share of voter support in South Carolina than in New Hampshire.

According to FiveThirtyEight polling, Trump is polling at 65.2% to Haley’s 27.3%.

To put that in perspective, on the eve of the New Hampshire primary, Haley polled at 36.3% in the Granite State.
