Former Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley fueled 2024 rumors recently when she went after Donald Trump.
Last month, Haley said she was “disgusted” by Trump’s comments and actions regarding the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally.
Now, Haley is trying to change her tune after her stunt backfired in her face. But conservatives are not listening nor do they care about what she has to say.
Following Trump’s speech at CPAC on Sunday, Haley took to Twitter and praised Trump.
“Strong speech by President Trump about the winning policies of his administration and what the party needs to unite behind moving forward” she tweeted. “The liberal media wants a GOP civil war. Not gonna happen.”

It didn’t take long for several Twitter users to clap back at her and make it clear that Trump supporters aren’t forgiving her anytime soon.
Nice try Nikki. You turned your back on us when you thought Trump was down in order to seek political gain. He gave you every opportunity to shine under his administration. Instead of gratitude, you dumped Trump at the very 1st sign of duress. That’s just being a crappy person.

During an interview with Politico, Haley said she was “disgusted” by Trump’s comments and actions regarding the Jan. 6 “Stop the Steal” rally.
Haley told Politico:
“Fast forward, I’m watching the television the morning of the 6th and I see Don Junior get up there. And then I hear the president get up there and go off on Pence. I literally was so triggered, I had to turn it off. I mean, Jon [Lerner] texted me something and I said, ‘I can’t. I can’t watch it. I can’t watch it,’ because I felt the same thing. Somebody is going to hear that, and bad things will happen.”
I asked Haley whether she has spoken to Trump since January 6. She shook her head.
“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” Haley hissed, leaning forward as she spoke. “Mike has been nothing but loyal to that man. He’s been nothing but a good friend of that man. … I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”
Since her comments, Haley has been dealt two major blows as things are starting to backfire on her in a major way.
First, she attempted to get a meeting with Trump last week and he denied her request.
Trump flat-out refused to meet with Haley or even give her the time of day.
“SCOOP: NIKKI HALEY reached out to former President DONALD TRUMP on Wednesday to request a sit-down at Mar-a-Lago, but a source familiar tells Playbook that he turned her down,” Politico reported.

Secondly, Haley did not speak at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, but Trump did.
In other words, her comments have boxed her out from prominent Republican circles.
One GOP source told The Hill that “Haley has been positioning herself for a presidential campaign since she left the Trump administration in 2018, but that she lacks a clear lane in the coming Republican primary and is struggling to figure out how to connect with GOP voters under Trump.”
“Haley has never understood the president and seems to not understand where the base of the party is,” the source said.
To some, Haley is just another member of the D.C. swamp, and attacking Trump is par for the course.
While that is true, it’s also important to note that the establishment side of the GOP wants to run someone like Haley in 2024.
So her comments against Trump were calculated. She knew what she was doing. And Trump supporters will not forget it.
