Former President Donald Trump recently announced that he would blacklist anyone who contributes to Nikki Haley’s presidential campaign. In a post on Truth Social, Trump declared that any contributions made to Haley’s campaign would result in a permanent ban from the MAGA camp.
“We don’t want them, and will not accept them,” he stated. It remained unclear from Trump’s post if this exclusion applied solely to direct donations to Haley’s campaign or if it also included contributions to pro-Haley political action committees.
In response, Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, took to her social media platform, X, encouraging people to donate to her campaign. She posted, “Well in that case…donate here. Let’s Go!” along with a link to her fundraising site.
Requests for additional comments from the Trump and Haley campaigns went unanswered at the time of reporting. According to NBC News, Haley is scheduled to be in New York City for multiple Wall Street fundraisers on Monday and Tuesday, as confirmed by two campaign sources. Despite Trump’s projected win in New Hampshire, Haley has committed to staying in the race and has been highlighting her recent fundraising success.
She announced that she raised $1 million within 24 hours following the New Hampshire primary, a claim her campaign reiterated. However, this claim has not been independently verified by NBC News as the Federal Election Commission has yet to release data for that period.
Regarding campaign finances, Trump’s campaign reported over $37 million in hand at the end of the third quarter of 2023, while Haley’s campaign reported over $11 million, as per Federal Election Commission filings. The third quarter spanned from July through September.
