Haley to Trump: “Turn Down the Volume” (Video)


trumpDuring her State of the Union response, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley devoted some time to taking shots at the current leading contender for her party’s presidential nomination: Donald Trump.

“Growing up in the South our family didn’t look like our neighbors and we didn’t have much,” Haley said setting the scene. “There were times that were tough but we had each other. And we had the opportunity to do anything and be anything as long as we were willing to work for it. Immigrants have been coming to our shores for generations to live the dream that is America. They wanted better for their children than for themselves. That remains the dream of all of us and in this country. We have seen time and again that that dream is achievable.”

Gideon Resnick reports for the Daily Beast that Haley went on to say that in threatening times, “It can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices,” a not-so-subtle dig at Trump, who thrives on anger from the populace. “We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.”

Haley also discussed the way in which the state came together to remove vestiges of the Confederate flag in the wake of the tragic shooting in a Charleston church. She used this as a framework to lob another attack at the loud candidates occupying the GOP presidential field at the moment.

“Some people think you have to be the loudest voice in the world to make a difference,” Haley said. “That’s just not true. Often the best thing we can do is turn down the volume. When the sound is quieter, you can actually hear what someone else is saying. And that can make a world of difference.” [Gideon Resnick-Daily Beast]

  1. Sounds like a classic r.i.n.o. They all pander to the leftist media hoping that the establishment will say hey look the republicans aren’t that bad after all. She doesn’t understand that to all conservatives and real republicans, she joined the leftists and the democrats a long time ago
    Trump NEVER said anything against immigrants nor against muslims. He said in order to keep the citizens in this country safe (which btw is THE raison d’etre for the existence of any government) muslims should not be allowed to enter UNTIL we can figure out who’s coming in peace and who’s not. He NEVER said a word against LEGAL immigrants; he wants to deport ILLEGAL immigrants. There’s a big difference. There’s a process to that and every country has the right to determine who gets to emigrate. Not a hard concept. Unless you’re a democrat or a phony r.i.n.o. like Haley. Then small abstract distinctions like legal and illegal, friend or foe, are hard to deal with if it gets in the way with their appetite for power.
