Former President Donald Trump said Tuesday night that he believes that former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley was still in the presidential race because she does not know how to get out.

Trump made the remarks during a town hall event after Haley held a press conference earlier in the day declaring that she would ignore growing calls for her to drop out, despite being down by roughly 60 points nationally to Trump.

During her press conference, Haley said that she has “settled” the question about whether she was running to be Trump’s vice president, something that she declined to directly answer earlier during the campaign.

When asked whether he thought that Haley had “settled that question,” Trump responded: “Well, I settled it about three months ago. She’s not working. She’s here. She’s down by 30-35 points. And everybody knows her. You’re not supposed to lose your home state, shouldn’t happen anyway. And she’s losing it bigly, big. … But we’re gonna really do a job, I think that as you know, when we went to Iowa, we got the biggest margin in the history of the caucus, the biggest.”

When asked why he believes that she was not dropping out of the race, Trump said: “I don’t think she knows how to get out, actually. I really don’t. She did terribly in New Hampshire. She got — the only votes she got was from Democrats.”

Speaking of major donors who are funding her campaign, Trump said that they were propping her up to damage him in the general election.


“Well, they’re trying to hurt me because of the general election, so the Democrats are giving her money and she’s playing into the game, and I think she just can’t get herself to get out,” he said. “She’s doing poorly in the polls. Look, if she was doing well, I’d understand it. But she’s doing very poorly. She lost in record numbers in Iowa, record numbers in New Hampshire. Nevada. ‘No Name’ beat [her].”
