( – GOP presidential hopeful Nikki Haley recently shared her perspective on the ongoing discourse surrounding former President Trump. Amidst receiving a significant endorsement from New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, Haley expressed her frustration with the media’s fixation on Trump, during an interview with ABC News’ Jonathan Karl on “This Week.”

Haley highlighted a disconnect between the media’s Trump-centric focus and the concerns of average citizens. “You [the media] are overly fixated on him. Ordinary people are more concerned with practical issues such as rising costs and perceived threats to their freedoms, rather than Trump’s every word or tweet,” she stated.

Emphasizing the need for fresh leadership, Haley, who served as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, pointed out that people are seeking leaders who focus on their daily struggles and aspirations, rather than getting caught up in media-driven obsessions.

During the interview, Karl questioned Haley about Trump’s campaign rhetoric, particularly his emphasis on “retribution.” Sununu, also part of the interview, criticized Trump for avoiding substantial discussions on his policies and achievements. He pointed out Trump’s avoidance of topics like border security, fiscal responsibility, and his failure to “drain the swamp,” a key campaign promise.

Haley also addressed the polarized expectations regarding her stance on Trump. She acknowledged areas of agreement and disagreement with the former president, noting her concerns about national debt and security issues, particularly relating to China and the fentanyl crisis.

As she positions herself within the GOP landscape, Haley acknowledged Trump’s significance during his tenure but cautioned against the turmoil associated with his leadership. She stressed the need for stability and forward-looking governance, implying that a repeat of Trump’s presidency might not be in the nation’s best interest.
