Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley responded this week to former President Donald Trump’s continued attacks about the whereabouts of her husband, who is deployed overseas with the National Guard, saying that his remarks were “disgusting.”

Trump has made the attacks as he leads Haley by nearly 60 points in polling for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average.

Over the weekend, Trump brought up Haley’s husband during a rally, asking: “What happened to her husband? Where is he? He’s gone.” He reiterated the line of attack in a Monday social media post, saying her performance on the campaign trail was “an embarrassment to her wonderful husband” and suggesting “he should come back home to help save her dying campaign.”

Haley responded to the attacks during an interview with Dana Perino, saying: “It’s disgusting. I mean, every bit of it is disgusting.”

“You know, to sit there and mock my husband for not being with me on the presidential trail because he is deployed and serving our country. You mock one veteran, you’re mocking all veterans,” Haley said. “But this is a pattern, he’s done this over and over again. Whether he went and calls military members suckers. Whether he was at Arlington Cemetery saying what was in it for them, why would they do this?”

“The problem with Trump is he’s never been anywhere near a uniform,” she said. “He apparently had some sort of foot reason that he says he couldn’t do that. But the reality is the closest he’s come to harm’s way is a golf ball hitting him on a golf cart. These men and women sacrifice for us every day. They’re willing to shed blood. That’s the values that made this country great, and anybody that excuses what he continues to say against the military is hugely mistaken because this is going to be the president of the United States.”


Haley said that anyone who agrees with Trump’s remarks or who says that the remarks are okay “is disgusting along with him.”
