Statement by Nikki Haley: The White House Is Not a Nursing Home

February 09, 2024

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Presidential candidate Nikki Haley released a message for Democrats and Republicans in the wake of the special council report on Joe Biden:

"Yesterday was a wakeup call for the country. The White House is not a taxpayer-subsidized nursing home. It is clear to most Americans that Biden lacks the mental capacity to effectively serve as president.

"Democrats are waking up to this hard truth and some are actively working to replace the Biden-Harris ticket. I encourage more Democrats to do that for the good of our country.

"Today should also be a wake-up call for Republicans.

"Donald Trump has his own mental deficiencies, is prone to temper tantrums and wild rants, and confuses countries and who was in charge of Capitol security on January 6th.

"I have long said the first party to retire its 80-year-old candidate will win the White House. Democrats appear on their way to doing just that. Trump runs about even with the enfeebled Biden; he would get crushed by a Democrat with a pulse."
