Nikki Haley Attacks Fox Host To Face For Backing Trump

Things got a little heated on the Fox & Friends curvy couch during a spirited interview with Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley.



Things started convivially on the day of the New Hampshire primary on the remote set Fox News constructed for this very day. But Haley pushed back hard as she faced pressing questions about whether she would drop out of the race if she did not win Tuesday’s election amid slagging poll numbers.

“If you don’t win today, do you go on to South Carolina?” Ainsley Earhardt asked, noting that she and Haley both call South Carolina their home state, which Haley served as governor. “You don’t want to go into your state and lose that state if you stay in the race, because we’d love to see you in some other capacity down the road. What is your response to that? Do you get out if you lose today?”

“No, I don’t get out if I lose today,” Haley flatly replied. “First of all, again, I’m going to say this: we’ve had 56,000 people vote for Donald Trump. And you’re going to say that’s what the country wants. That’s not what the country wants. We’re going to have New Hampshire vote today. They deserve to have the power of their voice.”

“But do you worry the Iowa polls were right?” Earhardt pressed. “Right now you’re down double digits in probably the last three major polls. And in South Carolina, I think you’re down 40 or 50 points. So you think those polls are that dramatically wrong, and you can make up that difference?”

After Haley pushed back hard on the idea of her dropping from the race, Brian Kilmeade piled on by asking, “There’s no scenario where it stops tonight.”

“I’m going to fight no matter what, “Haley said before digging the line of questioning. “I don’t care how much y’all want to coordinate Donald Trump. At the end of the day, that’s not what Americans want. Americans want a choice. And we’re going to give them that same.”

“Coronate, lie, not tell the truth, what you said on the couch,” Kilmeade pushed back. “I’m really wondering why you think we’re the enemy.”

“Because I’ve looked at the media, look at the media saying, ‘Oh, this is Donald Trump’s to have,’ look at the political class all coalescing and saying, ‘everybody needs to get out,’ she replied. “That’s not democracy. That’s not who we are, who we are. When have we ever had two people down to two people in New Hampshire? And you say, oh, it’s over. We don’t do that. South Carolina is an amazing state.”
