Trump attacks Haley, calls Biden ‘the enemy’

(The Center Square) – Former President Donald Trump attacked former Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley online Wednesday as she was leaving the race before going on to call President Joe Biden “the enemy.”

This campaign season intensified with the results of Super Tuesday. Trump called Biden “the enemy” Wednesday morning and attacked Haley even as she suspended her campaign.

Haley refused to endorse Trump, and Biden continues to attack Trump as a threat to Democracy.

The increased rancor suggests there will be no pulled punches in the likely general election faceoff between Biden and Trump.

“Nikki Haley got TROUNCED last night, in record setting fashion, despite the fact that Democrats, for reasons unknown, are allowed to vote in Vermont, and various other Republican Primaries,” Trump wrote on TruthSocial, his social media site of choice. “Much of her money came from Radical Left Democrats, as did many of her voters, almost 50%, according to the polls.

“At this point, I hope she stays in the ‘race’ and fights it out until the end!” he added.

The post came out at 10:05 a.m. just as Haley herself was beginning a speech to her supporters where she announced she would leave the race. However, news outlets had already reported Haley was leaving which means Trump’s attacks came after it was public that Haley was suspending her campaign.

In his online, post, Trump thanked his supporters before going on to attack Biden.

“I’d like to thank my family, friends, and the Great Republican Party for helping me to produce, by far, the most successful Super Tuesday in HISTORY, and would further like to invite all of the Haley supporters to join the greatest movement in the history of our Nation,” Trump said. “BIDEN IS THE ENEMY, HE IS DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!”

Tuesday evening, when it was clear that both Biden and Trump were largely sweeping the primary states, Biden launched his own attack on Trump, suggesting he is an enemy of Democracy.

“Today, millions of voters across the country made their voices heard – showing that they are ready to fight back against Donald Trump’s extreme plan to take us backwards,” Biden wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter, as the votes were still coming in Tuesday. “Every generation of Americans will face a moment when it has to defend democracy. This is our fight.”

Notably, when Haley bowed out of the Republican presidential race she congratulated Trump but did not endorse him as other Republican challengers have done.

“In all likelihood, Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee when our party convention meet in July,” Haley said. “I congratulate him and wish him well. I wish anyone well who would be America’s president. Our country is too precious to let our differences divide us.”

Haley lost all but one of the fifteen Republican primary votes Tuesday, the last nail in the coffin of her campaign.

“I have always been a conservative Republican and always supported the Republican nominee,” Haley continued. “But on this question, as she did on so many others, Margaret Thatcher provided some good advice when she said, ‘Never just follow the crowd. Always make up your own mind.’ It is now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him and I hope he does that.”

Rep. Dean Phillips, D-Minn., was the only Democratic lawmaker challenging Biden. He dropped out of the race Wednesday as well and endorsed Biden.
