Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley: This Is the Unhinged Chaos that Comes With Trump

February 24, 2024

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. — In case the American people forgot what happens when Donald Trump veers off the teleprompter or prepared script, Trump reminded Americans last night just how unhinged he can be.

Last night, at an event in Columbia, South Carolina, Trump made a number of disparaging comments about Black Americans, including claiming that "I can only see the Black ones" because of the bright lights, that they've "embraced" his mug shot more than any other group, and that he had been "indicted a second time and a third time and a fourth time, and a lot of people said that's why the Black people" like him.

Addressing the media after casting her ballot in Kiawah Island, South Carolina, Nikki Haley called Trump's comments "disgusting" and called for a return to normalcy.

Watch the clip here:

"It's disgusting. But this is what happens when Donald Trump goes off the teleprompter. That's the chaos that comes with Donald Trump. That's the offensiveness that will come every day until the general election. That's why I continue to say that Donald Trump cannot win a general election…This is a huge warning sign. We have to stop with the chaos. We have to stop with the drama. We have to stop with the bad sound bites that keep happening over and over again, and we have to listen to the American people.

"If 70 percent of Americans say they don't want Trump or Biden, that they think they're the two most disliked politicians in America, if 60 percent of Americans think that Donald Trump is too old, that Joe Biden is too old to be president… I hope the people of South Carolina and the people in the Super Tuesday states listen to that.

"There is a choice. We can leave the chaos and the drama, we can leave the incompetence. We can go to something that is normal. And that's what the people want, especially the younger generation. They just want to know what normal feels like."
