Farah Griffin says Trump victory in NH would be ‘bad for America’

Alyssa Farah Griffin, a co-host of ABC’s “The View,” offered a stark warning for New Hampshire primary voters Tuesday, arguing a victory for former President Trump would “be bad for America.”

Speaking on “The View,” Farah Griffin — a former White House strategic communications director for the Trump administration — called on Granite State voters to get out and vote for former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley to prevent a Trump win in Tuesday’s primary.

“You guys know, I don’t agree with [Haley] on everything, but I think she’s immensely qualified, I don’t think she’s a threat to democracy and I think she could turn the page on the most unqualified former president in history,” Farah Griffin said.

“But I want to be honest with viewers: People need to turn out today, because the polls do have [Haley] down,” she continued. “They have her down in a big way, she needs to really come within single digits, under 10 points behind Trump to even have a fighting chance onto her home state of South Carolina because if this is wrapped up tomorrow, this is bad for America.”

Farah Griffin warned a victory for Trump in the Tuesday primary would hand the former president the “biggest megaphone to spout lies, hate and bigotry” over the next year as the GOP front-runner.

New Hampshire kicked off its primary Tuesday, with polls expected to close by 8 p.m. EST. Haley trailed Trump by 13.9 points before the Granite State primary, according to a polling index from The Hill and Decision Desk HQ.

Haley’s campaign reiterated in a memo Tuesday that it intends to push forward, arguing the campaign “has not even begun,” in other states, including Haley’s home state of South Carolina, where she previously served as governor.

Trump won by nearly 30 points in last week’s Iowa caucuses, while Haley came in a distant third.
