Biden campaign: Trump doesn’t want Haley voters

President Biden’s reelection campaign argued Monday that former President Trump doesn’t want supporters of Republican Nikki Haley in his camp and hasn’t reached out to them.

“Trump Outreach to Haley Voters: Nonexistent,” the Biden campaign claimed in an email. “Donald Trump doesn’t want moderate, independent, or Haley voters.”

“Donald Trump and his campaign have made it clear: If you are not part of the MAGA disciples then you aren’t welcome in his campaign,” Biden campaign spokesperson James Singer said. “For independent, moderate, and Nikki Haley voters who all care about protecting democracy and lowering costs for families, President Biden is reaching out his hand to welcome them into his coalition while Donald Trump is slamming the door in their face.”

The Biden campaign has claimed from the day Haley dropped out of the race that Trump isn’t interested in appealing to them. The Biden-Harris team see an opening with those Republicans to court them into the Biden camp and argue that Trump is driving them away.

“Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters. I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign,” Biden said in a statement March 6.

The Biden campaign on Tuesday highlighted that Trump hasn’t called Haley since she dropped out and shared a quote from former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who said on his podcast earlier this month, “Screw Nikki Haley — we don’t need her endorsement.”

When Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, ended her bid for president, which set up a rematch between Biden and Trump in November, she did not endorse the former president.
