Nikki Haley hits out at GOP’s favouritism towards Donald Trump

Published

on

Nikki Haley, a contender in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, has announced her intention to stay in the race at least until Super Tuesday.

The decision comes in the wake of her criticism of the Republican National Committee (RNC) for allegedly favoring former President Donald Trump.

 

Haley, who previously served as the US ambassador to the United Nations under Trump’s administration, expressed confidence in her prospects, particularly in her home state of South Carolina, as she seeks to rebound from less-than-stellar performances in the Iowa Republican caucus and last week’s New Hampshire primary.

During an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday, Haley stated, “I think I need to do better than I did in New Hampshire. So this is a building situation.”

Super Tuesday

While she stopped short of committing to remain in the race through the Republican nominating convention in July, she emphasised her determination to participate in Super Tuesday.

“I have every intention of going to Super Tuesday,” she affirmed. “I take it one state at a time. I don’t think too far ahead, but I’m not going anywhere.”

Haley’s criticism extended to the RNC, which she accused of not being an impartial arbiter in the Republican primary race.

Last week, following Trump’s victory in New Hampshire, RNC Chair Ronna McDaniel suggested that Trump’s dominance within the party was set to increase, urging Republicans to unite behind Trump as the eventual nominee.

McDaniel notably told Fox News, “I don’t see it for Nikki Haley.”

Presumptive nominee

The RNC had also floated a proposal, later withdrawn, to declare Trump as the “presumptive nominee.”

However, Trump weighed in on Thursday, using his social media platform to discourage the RNC from pursuing the resolution, emphasizing the importance of party unity and stating his desire to “finish the process off AT THE BALLOT BOX.”

As Nikki Haley continues to campaign in the Republican primary race, the GOP faces an internal struggle over the role and influence of former President Donald Trump, setting the stage for a dynamic and closely-watched contest in the lead-up to Super Tuesday and beyond.

White House national security spokesperson John Kirby said the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security were looking into an AT&T outage that lasted for several hours and impacted thousands of customers across the United States.

Extremism top concern for U.S. voters ahead of election

Published

on

Worries over political extremism and threats to democracy have surged to the forefront as the primary concern for U.S. voters, setting the stage for a high-stakes showdown in the upcoming November election.

The three-day Reuters Ipsos poll, which concluded on Sunday, found that 21% of respondents identified “political extremism or threats to democracy” as the nation’s most pressing issue, narrowly edging out concerns about the economy and immigration.

President Joe Biden appears to hold a slight advantage over his predecessor, Donald Trump, in addressing this issue, with 34% of respondents believing Biden has a better approach compared to 31% for Trump.

The findings underscore the deeply polarized political landscape in America, with Democrats prioritizing extremism as the top issue, while Republicans overwhelmingly focus on immigration.

Independent voters

The poll also highlights the pivotal role of independent voters, with nearly a third citing extremism as their primary concern, followed closely by immigration and the economy.

This suggests that the handling of extremism could significantly influence voter behavior in the upcoming election.

The rise of extremism as a top concern comes amid ongoing political turmoil, with Trump continuing to challenge the legitimacy of U.S. institutions and perpetuate false claims of election fraud.

His rhetoric has not only fueled division but also incited violence, as seen in the January 6, 2021, assault on the U.S. Capitol.
