Nikki Haley Criticizes Trump, Calls Riot ‘Un-American’

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told fellow Republicans Thursday that President Trump’s actions since his reelection loss to President-elect Joseph R. Biden “will be judged harshly by history,” according to reports,” according to The Washington Times.

“‘President Trump has not always chosen the right words. He was wrong with his words in Charlottesville, and I told him so at the time,’ Ms. Haley told a Republican National Committee dinner in Florida, Fox News and Politico reported. ‘He was badly wrong with his words yesterday. And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.’ [emphasis added]

“‘It’s deeply disappointing,’ she continued. ‘And it’s a real shame, because I am one who believes our country made some truly extraordinary gains in the last four years. President Trump and Republicans deserve great credit for that,’ she said, according to excerpts. ‘We should not shy away from our accomplishments.’

“Ms. Haley, a former South Carolina governor who supported Mr. Trump’s reelection and spoke at the Republican National Convention in August, was speaking a day after a mob of Trump supporters who falsely believe he won the election stormed the Capitol building and temporarily halted a joint session of Congress to certify the Electoral College votes Wednesday afternoon…

“Ms. Haley called the riot “un-American” but said it shouldn’t define the country.

  3. Rebecca Fuchser says:

    Who is Niccky Haley?

    Why does the media pick up every negative comment by any one we don’t even know against the President?
    What about positive comments?

    The media, the swamp, and democrats are always voicing negativity! They further promote discord and destruction in our country of America. They have a distructive agenda they are promoting!

  4. Mary says:

    God help us I New when Trump said clean the swamp tha t would be trouble for him they don’t want to give up those. Soft jobs good pay great vacations and no work

  5. KA says:

    I think Nikki Haley has forgotten to go back to the beginnings of our country. We rioted and fought against England to be “free”. I don’t think the demonstration what’s meant to be a riot I think there were elements that infiltrated the protest against the Electoral College acknowledgement. I’m sorry people were injured killed however I believe there was Shenanigans all the way around. Dig deeper find the true source.

    • Kay says:

      I am an older adult.
      I think it all started the day that Hillary lost the election and Trump won.
      Both parties are responsible for that final act in Washington Capital. The president , speaker of the house , chuck S , the speaker of the Senate, ETC.
      you all have PLAYED THIS MASS UP THE PEOPLE
      TRYING TO STAY ON TOP. TEARING UP SPEACHES ON PUBLIC TV , hiding the facts, like in the 1st impeachment.
      Charging people that could afford health insurances fines
      letting people do hat ever to the cities. Letting people come illegal, not taking care of the borders
      Talking so big what everyone does wrong.
      How are we getting out of this mess. All should be help accountable including the speeches each have given. President down the line. You are support to work together but you all have let others change our country.
      We are the people that will suffer. Because you all Quit getting along.
      Remove me if you all want too. I AM TIRED OF LISTENING TO THIS MESS YOU ALL HAVE CREATED.

    I totally disagree with Nikki Haley. President Trump requested a Peaceful Protest. He did Not encourage any violence or disruption. He wanted and we want investigation and review of voter fraud evidence and illegal Election processes. This country must have fair, honest elections. Not mail in voting which is subject to widespread fraud. Democrats are using this incident to diminish and destroy a great president. None of them condemned the riots, looting, violence from Antifa and BLM over the past six months. Nikki Haley knows this. Where was She in condemning their violent acts. Where was the Press. Where were the Celebrities, Democrats and Never Trumper Replublicans.

  9. bruce says:

    I always like you but you are wrong here. The President never called for riot or insurrection and that Didn’t happen. ANTIFA and BLM paid people to do what was done and its a small group. They will be caught and all will see. All you weak and compromised Republicans will be replaced with honest and brave Americans.

  10. Paul says:

    Hailey. Sorry but your so out of touch . Dig a little deeper and you”ll find out it wasn”t Trump supporters who stormed the capital but the 5 busloads of Antifa and Black lives matter people that were paid by the democrats to due this. Get your facts straight before you open your mouth

  11. David says:

    All summer long ANTIFA and BLM completely destroyed cities and the MSM delusional turds called it peaceful protests. One incident at a Trump rally and peaceful protest that was disruptive from ANTIFA is called rioting. The double standards the left live each day is criminal and appalling. By the way….. this is not over. Wait to you see what happens the next 11 days

    • Olive says:

      She speaks like a Democrat “politician” —— She forgets what President Trumps true words are when it is convenient for them…….. Also they all need to remember that this “cancel culture” that they have become so fond of and quick to administer really does work “both” ways and she, like many others that have become so self-serving will find out when they are looking for support to get elected to their next “boondoggle”. The Circus is just starting with the Democratic party as all the far left people are being given seats at Biden’s dinner table…… sit back and watch, it won’t be long until Pelosi is trying to get rid of him……. how long after Jan. 20th????
      Will Hunter be at the inaugeration????

  12. It’s a real shame that they are now turning on President Trump.

    He is not a politician, he does not speak like a politician like them and that is why we voted for him.

    He did not tell them to break into the capital only that he supported them in their peaceful demonstration!

    I hope and pray that they will find the real people responsible for this tragedy!

  13. Eugenia says:

    I agree with all of the above! Our freedom is gone & the turncoats & left will line their pockets with taxpayers money!

  14. Richard Gower says:

    There was no evidence that ANTIFA, BLM, or any other group was present at this seige, I agree completely with Ms Haley comments, the president needs to go, he needs to be censored, impeached, or better yet resign and let Vice President Pence become president and let him pardon him.

    • Craig says:

      They have photos of antifa and #blm in the capital building as well… your libtard kool aid is a little watered down phool! Look at the guy smashing the window out when Ashli Babbitt is shot to death through her neck… he’s dressed in all black. Gets the glass broke out, and the rest is history!!! He sees the secret service guy tracking them with his gun… and we all saw what happened next…the t fairy steps his punk bitch ass out of her screaming way stands down and let’s a real warrior all 100 pounds and bare hands 2 do the dirty work of getting through his breach work… a real coward 4 sure!!! It’s coming people batten down the hatches and get ready.

    • Norma says:

      I have never seen so much hypocritical CRAP in print and splattered all over TV in my life! Everybody is so scared of TRUMP with 11 days until the inauguration? – It’s obvious Democrats are so crooked they can’t do anything without lying & cheating but why do we have to put up with so many weak kneed Republicans? I thought you were better than that Ms Haley! So are you now thinking it’s to your advantage joining the Anti-American wolf pack who think they can gain more political points by turning on the only real honest to goodness fighter for the country and the people have seen for a LONG time?
      If indeed Nikky Haley said such things before she knew the facts, she needs to apologize to the 70+ million Americans who have had about enough of the self serving weak kneed Washington D C Anti-American crowd who are playing patty cake ho hum politics while this precious Constitutional Republic goes totally down the sewer!

    • JOSEPH MONTE says:

      Exactly what did President Trump say that precipitated the riot. I heard the speech, and it was very similar to his many stump speeches. Nowhere was there any suggestion that the audience do anything unlawful. In fact he asked the audience to go peacefully and patriotically to the Capitol.

      Nikki Haley will never receive another vote from any Trump supporter. Too bad she couldn’t keep her mouth shut.

  15. Darnoc48 says:

    What am I missing here? I have read the article three times now and I still don’t see where Niki Haley criticized Trump over what happened at the Capitol building. Yes she did mention that he sometimes uses wrong words when he speaks but where does it say he was actually to blame for the actions of a few malicious people who may have been infiltrators from a malcontent group from this past summer’s riots, excuse me, protests? Yes, the actions of the people who broke into the Capitol were un-American, by definition, but don’t judge the actions of a few for the belief of the whole.

  16. Lonnie Bearden says:

    Well.its back to the same owe.bull ____ every body wants to count there chickens before they hatch one thing we all need go understand we are not judges God is the o ly true judge and believe me all of this cheating is going to come back on the democrats Donna’s Trump will not do it the American people will not do it BUT GOD WILL

  17. Eric says:

    What is the difference between Trump and Antifa ? Nothing !! All moronic imbeciles >>>

  18. Donna fader says:

    You disappoint me I d not believe The President incited the riot I do believe it was planned by the very people who have tried to undermine him. Think how you would react after 4years of ridicule that he has had to endure I would have snapped long before this last problem. The election was fake I feel my vote did not matter. He is a great President and nan All the people who have now deserted him are fake supporters. The people who are standing by him are real

  19. buttercup says:

    If it is Un-American, you’d better believe its from one side, and one side only.

  20. Kay says:

    Nobody knows for sure who did what! President Trump loves this country and the people and they love him back. There was plenty of time for disruption to be organized by those who planned the blame to be put on President Trump. Shame on all who were involved in the process. We the People still love and support our true President – Donald J. Trump!!!

  21. Ken says:

    Is she a Deep Stater or just dumber than a Democrat?

  22. Glenda says:

    No comment. It isn’t worth wasting my time on her. She goes along with all the wrong reasons anyway.

  23. Joan says:

    I do not agree with Nikki Haley regarding her opinion of President Trump. He did not tell the crowd to storm the Capitol. I think he meant for them to march to that location so the representatives could see the size of the crowd and know that Republicans are sick of standing back and letting the Democrats walk all over us. We have enough intelligence to plainly see that fraud was rampant. Regardless of who says what. The same goes for the state of Georgia. What a shame that four great years ended on such a low note. President Trump did not deserve this.

    • Marjie says:

      President Trump loves America and would not cause a riot. BLM and Antifa cause riots and they were there. Who are the proven liars the last four years? Think about it.

  24. Marcy says:

    Nikki,
    How shallow & inconsiderate…there is a back story that you don’t know. But, typical of a politician waste no time
    in getting ‘airtime’..are you not willing for all the ‘truth’ to unfold before pronouncing your ‘feeling’? You will someday
    soon be returning via ‘Mea Culpa’..when unsure, best to ‘restrain’..surely a tenet of friendship. Still a friend?
    Likely not…We The People Will Not Forget..

  25. Charles says:

    She’s a two faced Democrat anyway. He needs to distance himself from her. I don’t trust any of them now.

  26. Ellen says:

    Antifa was there and paid for by Soros the devil in human form! Nikki Haley is off my list as good person to stab a person in the back like she is doing to Trump just right down dirty so she is off my list as a good person!!!! He was cheated and the American people have been cheated! GOD WILL WIN!

  27. Suzette Shewood says:

    Many of these folks are awfully quick to judge…At this point we don’t know who was behind of the break in of the capital building…They better be careful…what goes around comes around and paybacks are hell…

  28. Lois Swaim says:

    I sincerely think that Antifa was the main reason for the disruption at the Capitol Wednesday.

    • Bobbi Chandler says:

      This entire thing was set up to fail! Where was the media when cops hit a 60 yr old lady in the knee? They knew it would make real supporters mad and start fighting but that was their plan all along! Who exactly paid for the busloads of antifa members to go and pose as Patriots?! And they were well paid! Someone said nasty Nancy was crouched down hiding but how about the store owners who had their business’s burned down and all the windows and everything smashed up while the owners were scared inside?!! Nobody helped them, did they?!!
