Nikki Haley called Donald Trump’s mental competency into question after he seemingly mixed her up with Rep. Nancy Pelosi when talking about the Jan. 6 riot in New Hampshire on Friday.
“We see that [President Joe] Biden has changed so much in two years,” Haley said. “But last night Trump is at a rally and he’s going on and on mentioning me multiple times as to why I didn’t take security during the Capitol riots. Why didn’t I handle Jan. 6 better? I wasn’t even in D.C. on Jan. 6. I wasn’t in office then.
“They’re saying he got confused, that he was talking about something else, he’s talking about Nancy Pelosi. He mentioned me multiple times in that scenario. The concern I have is — I’m not saying anything derogatory — but when you’re dealing with the pressures of the presidency, we can’t have someone else that we question whether they’re mentally fit to do this. We can’t.”
The final Jan. 6 committee report debunked Trump’s claim about Pelosi.
“Some have suggested that President Trump gave an order to have 10,000 troops ready for January 6th. The Select Committee found no evidence of this. In fact, President Trump’s Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller directly refuted this when he testified under oath,” the committee found.
Trump offered his debunked claim again this morning.
