Nikki Haley has been making some very interesting comments as of late.
I noticed that while she is tearing down DeSantis, she is building up Trump.
When she announced, I found it odd that Trump did not really tear into her, and now I think I have it all figured out.
My theory… Haley is running with Trump’s approval because she is working to take votes away from DeSantis to get another cabinet position with Trump.
Here me out…
If I am right, this is a pretty slick move by Trump, and even slicker by Haley.
Earlier this week, Haley was spouting off against DeSantis, which really makes no sense.
Trump should be the main target of all these secondary candidates, but Haley is specifically hitting DeSantis.
To that point, she accused him of doing a 180 and copying everything that Trump did, which is already a Trump talking point, as you can see in the Fox News video below…
Then her campaign came out and hit DeSantis again a day later.
Haley’s campaign manager Betsy Ankney, stated, “The glaring difference between the two is DeSantis’ inability to interact directly with voters. The last several months have been filled with brutal headlines about his lack of basic people skills.
“Ron DeSantis is like Trump, drama and all — but without any of the charm,” reports The Hill.
The last thing I would consider Trump is “charming,” but maybe that is how she sees it.
Regardless, this appears to be a coordinated attack to me and I now believe that Haley is an operative of Trump.
She knows she cannot win this election, so the play here is to suck up to Trump, take out DeSantis, then get a high-ranking position in Trump’s administration that would set her up for another run, a legit run, in 2028.
If Haley snags the VP title, trust me, she will not drop the ball like Kamala Harris is doing. I think she would be an amazing VP, and she is smart as a whip, so all these hits against DeSantis have a purpose.
I could be wrong… but I am sticking to his one and going to ride it out until I am proven wrong.
