Psaki says Trump is dangerous, chaotic and old, then explains what Trump’s ‘most powerful weapon’ is in the race

Former U.S. President Donald Trump continues to win every state in the presidential primaries. With no Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis in the race, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley fails to collect strong support among voters and endorsements from public figures to really threaten Trump in the race. After winning the primaries in South Carolina last weekend, Trump continued his winning streak this week as we head to Super Tuesday.

Trump wins big in Haley’s home state South Carolina

Last weekend’s voting in South Carolina seemed to be the last opportunity for Haley to gain momentum. In the last few weeks, Haley concentrated most of her efforts and finances in her home state in a bid to win Trump and skyrocket her campaign in the upcoming states. But she failed. And she lost badly against Trump in her very own Palmetto State. But Haley is still in the race, as she pointed out several times that she will remain in the race at least by Super Tuesday. A week after the South Carolina primaries, it seems like the Haley campaign is coming to an end.

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki agrees with Haley on Trump

Former White House press secretary Jen Psaki said on Sunday that even though Nikki Haley, the only Republican candidate that tries to beat Trump, keeps speaking out clearly against the former president, Republican voters aren’t really listening to her points about Trump leading the race for 2024. After losing in South Carolina, it seems Trump’s main competitor, Haley, doesn’t have anything left to stop him from getting the Republican nomination.

“You don’t need to agree with Haley on much — I don’t necessarily — but you can still acknowledge she has been making a clear case against Trump in speech after speech. And that case is one of stark contrasts: Trump is dangerous. She is normal. Trump is chaotic. She is stable. Trump is old. She is young,” Psaki said on MSNBC’s “Inside with Jen Psaki” on Sunday the after S.C. primaries. “I mean, she’s not wrong on any of this,” Psaki added.

Haley losing South Carolina is clear sign that voters want Trump for president

However, Psaki said Haley’s loss in her home state of South Carolina on Saturday proves that even as Haley sharpens her rhetoric against Trump, Trump’s supporters are hard to peel away.

“But as we saw it again last night for the majority of the Republican electorate, none of it sticks. None of it seems to matter,” Psaki said. “Because Republican primary voters including, again, the majority of Republican primary voters in Haley’s home state, don’t want or don’t seem to want a young, experienced conservative governor who delivers solid speeches and doesn’t appear to be unhinged. They want Donald Trump,” she said.

Trump’s hard-core fan base is his most powerful weapon in winning the primaries

And what Psaki said is true. Most Republican voters want Donald Trump for president, despite facing more than 90 legal processes against him. The Republican voters, Trump’s hard-core fan base, are his most powerful weapon, which will likely bring him the Republican nomination and maybe the general election win. But Nikki Haley is still in the race, and she doesn’t quit.

Nikki Haley still in play for the Republican nomination

“I said earlier this week that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I would continue to run for president,” Haley told supporters after the race was called early for Trump on Saturday.

“I’m a woman of my word,” she said. “I’m not giving up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden.”

“The younger generation — my children’s generation — knows it better than anyone. They deserve better. They deserve leadership,” she added. “And so I will keep fighting — for them and for you and for all of America.”
