(RightIsRight.co) – In a move showing how he intends to govern once elected, former President Donald Trump announced Wednesday night that he will refuse campaign contributions from any donors who also support his GOP rival, Nikki Haley.
Trump made this declaration on his Truth Social page, stating, “Anybody that makes a ‘Contribution’ to Birdbrain, from this moment forth, will be permanently barred from the MAGA camp. We don’t want them, and will not accept them, because we Put America First, and ALWAYS WILL!”
This statement follows Trump’s recent victory over Haley in the New Hampshire primary, marking the second time he has outpaced her in the ongoing presidential primary season.
Trump and his allies have been urging Haley, who served as Trump’s United Nations ambassador from 2017 to 2018, to concede and support his campaign.
However, Haley remains steadfast, asserting on Tuesday night that the battle for the Republican nomination is “far from over.”
Haley, responding to Trump’s remarks on social media, countered with a call for donations to her campaign, accompanied by a link to her fundraising page.
The next primary contest is set in South Carolina, Haley’s home turf, where she previously held office as governor.
Despite this, the majority of the state’s Republican lawmakers are backing Trump, signaling a challenging homecoming for Haley’s campaign.
During a recent event in South Carolina, Haley revealed that her campaign raised $1 million, primarily through small-dollar donations, following her loss in New Hampshire.
She emphasized the widespread support her campaign has obtained, mentioning, “We have had 200,000 donors from all 50 states. Ninety-five percent of those donations are $200 or less,” showing the grassroots nature of her fundraising efforts.
