Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley commented on her marriage on Tuesday in response to a question about her criticism of Donald Trump.
Fox News’ Neil Cavuto asked Haley if she was worried about receiving “the wrath” of Trump supporters “who are pretty much in tune with him and make up a large part of the Republican base right now?”
“His constituents, his supporters and the American people want the truth. I’m just telling hard truths, ”reacted the former American ambassador to the United Nations and governor of South Carolina.
Then came the comment:
“You have people who are crazy that I don’t like Trump 90%, you know, 100% of the time. I don’t like my husband 100% of the time.

Haley married Major Michael Haley in 1996. They have two adult children.
“You have people who are upset that I don’t disagree with him one hundred percent of the time,” Haley continued to Cavuto about Trump. “I think he was the right president at the right time. I call him as I see him. And so, listen (…) I just think we have to move on. Our country cannot continue to cope to this chaos and negativity.
Cavuto sought to clarify Haley’s position on Trump, should he become the Republican nominee. Trump is currently the GOP front-runner, polling over 50%. Haley is fourth with 3.6%, behind Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (20.9) and former Vice President Mike Pence (6.1).
“Does that mean he got the wrong president this time? If the Republicans nominate him as your leader and as a presidential candidate, you wouldn’t support him? Cavuto asked.
Haley admitted that she would support whoever the GOP nominee is.
So even Trump.
“I said it and I say it to every Republican candidate who is going to step onto this debate stage. I will support the Republican who comes out of it, ”she said. “Of course I want it to be me but I want to support the Republican.”
Trump “has every right to run, like everyone else,” Haley added.
