Speaking with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto on Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley made a bizarre confession about her marriage in response to a question about her criticism of former president Donald Trump.
During the interview, Cavuto asked Haley if she was worried about receiving “the wrath” of Trump supporters “who are pretty much in lockstep with him and make up a large part of the Republican base right now.”
“His voters and supporters and the American people want the truth. I just speak hard truths,” Haley replied. “You’ve got some people who are mad that I don’t love Trump 90%, you know, 100% of the time.
Then came the comment: “I don’t love my husband 100% of the time.”
“You’ve got some people who are upset that I don’t disagree with him a hundred percent of the time,” the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and ex-governor of South Carolina continued. “I think he was the right president at the right time. I call it like I see it. And so, look … I just think we need to move forward. Our country can’t keep dealing with this chaos and this negativity.”
Cavuto pressed Haley on her stance on Trump, asking her whether she would support Trump should he become the Republican nominee.
“Does that mean he’s the wrong president this time? If the Republicans nominate him as your leader and as your presidential candidate, you would not support him?” Cavuto asked.
Haley said she’d back the GOP nominee, whoever it is.
“I have said and I say it to every Republican candidate who’s gonna get on that debate stage. I will support the Republican that comes out of that,” she said. “Certainly, I want it to be me but I want to support the Republican.”
