The target this time: Nikki Haley.
Donald Trump, the chief propagator of false “birther” claims first against then-President Barack Obama and later against Sen. Ted Cruz, has a new target: Nikki Haley.
As Haley surges in New Hampshire polling, Trump posted an article on his Truth Social account from a right-wing outlet that claimed Haley, his GOP rival, is ineligible to be president because her parents were not U.S. citizens when she was born.
Haley was born in South Carolina and has lived in the U.S. her entire life. Her parents were immigrants, who became citizens after her birth in 1972.
Gee, it’s like he is more than willing to stoke xenophobia and racism in the hopes of tearing down political opponents! And that he thinks nothing of sharing bogus conspiracy-based “analysis” to boot!
It never fails to amaze me that his public behavior would almost certainly torpedo his application for any normal job, and yet he has a nontrivial chance to be president again.
