Former Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley (R-SC) said Monday on CNN’s “The Lead” that she would beat former President Donald Trump for the party’s nomination.
Host Jake Tapper said, “So obviously you’re running in South Carolina and you told me you’re planning to be there. Obviously you want to be the candidate and then the president, but, but you’re going to be there. at least until Super Tuesday.

Haley said, “Well, first of all, I think you should know that I’m going to beat President Trump. But you should ask him if it will be difficult for him to support me?
Tapper said, “He didn’t sign the GOP pledge in 2016. I don’t think so and he’s certainly not signing it now.” So I’m sure he would say no. But I don’t suppose you’re going to commit to voting for him if he becomes the nominee?
Haley said: “What I’m saying is what I said from the beginning, when there were 14 candidates on stage, that any of the 14 would be better than Joe Biden. »
