Nikki Haley: ‘Mark My Words… If Trump Is the Nominee He Will Not Win a General Election’

Former Governor Nikki Haley, who is now a Republican presidential candidate asserted on Thursday during an appearance on CNN’s “The Lead” that if former President Donald Trump were to become the nominee, he would not win the general election.

Anchor Jake Tapper began: “You said that no matter what happens Saturday in the South Carolina primary, you’re staying in the race.”

“I wonder how much is your continuing to run for president, no matter what happened Saturday, how much is it about the chance that Donald Trump could possibly be a convicted felon later this year and you want to be a plan B as it were for the Republican Party?” he asked.

Haley replied: “What I’m trying to tell all Republicans and anybody, independents as well, anybody that’s voting in those primaries, is if you want a change in our country, which I think the entire country wants a change, we won’t get a change if we don’t win an election.”

“Donald Trump will not win the general election. You can have him win any primary you want. He will not win a general election. We will have a female president of the United States,” she continued.

“It will either be me or it will be Kamala Harris. But if Donald Trump is the nominee, you can mark my words, he will not win a general election,” she said.

“And what I say to everybody is, don’t complain about what happens in a general election if you don’t really think about that in this primary. We can do better,” she added.
