Nikki Haley Claims Nevada’s Vote ‘Rigged for Trump’ after Crushing Defeat

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has claimed that her campaign “didn’t bother to play” for the Nevada primary because she alleges that the state’s vote is “rigged” for President Donald Trump.

Haley wrote off the Nevada primary as “penny slots” following a crushing defeat from Trump.

Haley failed to win the Nevada primary despite Trump not even appearing on the ballot.

“Even Donald Trump knows that when you play penny slots the house wins,” said Haley campaign spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas.

“We didn’t bother to play a game rigged for Trump.”

She added, “We’re full steam ahead in South Carolina and beyond.”

With a majority of the votes counted, the results show Haley with around 30% of the vote.

The poor result comes despite Haley’s support from Democrats and Never-Trumpers as well as being the only candidate left in the race that appeared on the primary ballot as Trump chose to participate in the state’s caucus.

The Nevada caucus will be held on Thursday.

The winner of the primary, with around 63% of the vote, was listed as “None of these candidates.”

Trump himself took a victory lap against his presidential primary opponent on Wednesday.

“A bad night for Nikki Haley,” Trump said in a post on Truth Social.

“Losing by almost 30 points in Nevada to ‘None of These Candidates.’”

He added, “Watch, she’ll soon claim Victory!”

Haley herself did not directly address the loss and spoke only through her camaign.

However, she posted vague sentiments of resilience on social media.

“Even on our worst days, we are blessed to live in America,” Haley wrote in a post on X.
