Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) overruled former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley after Haley took a swipe at former President Donald Trump when she announced she will take on Trump for the GOP nomination.
Greene said: “Nikki Haley is just another George (or Jeb!) Bush. She is weak on the border, doesn’t want a wall, claimed ‘Legal Immigrants are more patriotic than most Americans these days,’ and she defended Obama when Pres. Trump criticized his terrible open-borders policy.
“And Nikki Haley refused to support a transgender bathroom bill to protect children. If we wanted a ‘Bush in heels,’ Republicans would vote for Liz Cheney,” Greene added.
Haley said when she announced her candidacy: “America is not past our prime. It’s just that our politicians are past theirs.

“We’re ready — ready to move past the stale ideas and faded names of the past.
“And we are more than ready for a new generation to lead us into the future.”
“Hi, I’m Nikki Haley.
“Are you ready for a new generation of leadership?
“Do you think politicians like Joe Biden and my former boss who I would never insult, Donald Trump, should be sent upstate to farm pancakes and catch butterflies?
“Do you want a president who has the guts to look your pop-pop or mee-maw in the eyes and say, ‘You’ve reached an arbitrary age, so I no longer think your brain works right’?
“If so, and if you are under the age of 75, I’m asking for your vote.”

LOL. Biden and the Democrats, together with most Republicans, gave Ukraine $60 billion in the first 6 months of the war: basically the size of Russia's whole military budget for the year, and Nikki Haley's criticism is he didn't give Ukraine enough and didn't give it fast enough: https://t.co/iSCOG4LOpR
