The Daily Caller -- South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said in an interview Thursday that rhetoric like Donald Trump’s is dangerous as she believes it causes incidents such as the Charleston church shooting.
“I know what that rhetoric can do. I saw it happen,” Haley told the Associated Press. She said in the interview that she believes divisive rhetoric drove Dylann Roof to kill nine black churchgoers last summer. Roof released a manifesto in which he detailed his racist intentions. He claimed he was “awakened” by the Trayvon Martin case.
Haley in the interview went on to say that she doesn’t believe Trump’s supporters are racist.
“That’s a different kind of anger. They’re upset with Washington, D.C. They’re upset nothing’s got done,” Haley told the AP. “The way he communicates that, I wish were different.”
The South Carolina governor has yet to endorse Trump and has come out strongly against him throughout the election. She previously said it would be “scary” if he won the Republican nomination.
Blog Author's Comments -- Haley is putting some of the blame on Trump for the incident that occurred because of some mentally ill or just plain wicked person. Has Nikki Haley listened to the rhetoric spewed by the progressives, the "protestors" at Trump rallies, Black Lives Matter, Obama, Clinton, the press? Shouldn't she be commenting on their rhetoric? It's the thing nobody figures out. All these attacks on Trump, they backfire on the people that launch them.
Donald Trump fights back when attacked. He is old school from NYC. He doesn't walk around and speak like that to everyone. Haley is just another RINO who feels she has to take her shot at Trump; we will see what it gets her. She is exactly what's wrong with the Republican Party, the type of politician who will not get anything done and is beholden to her rich donors. Will she be happy if Clinton should become our next president? It may not mean anything to her as long as she can continue being reelected to her current position.
