“Nikki Haley Is in Charge of Security”
Former President Donald Trump blamed his Republican presidential opponent and former South Carolina Nikki Haley for the Jan. 6 Capitol riot during a rally on Friday.
Speaking in Concord, New Hampshire, Trump confused his former ambassador to the U.N. ambassador with former Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Trump has previously blamed Pelosi for the security breakdown that enabled the Jan. 6 Capitol riot to take place. During his speech, Trump repeatedly said Haley’s name before claiming she was behind the lapse.
“You know, Nikki Haley, Nikki Haley, Nikki Haley, you know they– do you know they destroyed all of the information and all of the evidence?” Trump told the crowd. “Everything. Deleted and destroyed all of it. All of it because of, lots of things. Like, Nikki Haley is in charge of security. We offered her 10,000 people.”
