 Former President Donald Trump questioned the whereabouts of his GOP rival Nikki Haley‘s husband, who is deployed overseas, prompting blowback from Haley and her allies.

During an event in South Carolina on Saturday, which is poised to have its GOP primary later this month, Trump mockingly asked why Michael Haley was absent on the campaign trail.

“Where’s her husband? Oh, he’s away. He’s away,” Trump said. “What happened to her husband? What happened to her husband? Where is he? He’s gone.”

Haley, who served as governor of South Carolina and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during the Trump administration, responded as she also campaigned in the Palmetto State.

“Michael is deployed serving our country, something you know nothing about. Someone who continually disrespects the sacrifices of military families has no business being commander in chief,” Haley said on X.

In a fundraising pitch that echoed a similar message, Haley said, “Help me defeat Trump and elect a commander in chief who supports our troops and understands the sacrifices our military families make,” adding later, “This is a battle for the soul of our country.”

Others also commented on Trump’s latest broadside against Haley, including CNN’s Jake Tapper, who explained where her spouse has been rather than campaigning with his wife.

“Maj. Michael Haley is a commissioned officer with the SC National Guard and is currently deployed with the 218th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade in the Horn of Africa,” Tapper posted to X.

New Hampshire Republican Governor Chris Sununu, who endorsed Haley, also fired back at Trump.

This is a disgrace,” Sununu said on X. “Major Haley is serving his country. Donald Trump is again attacking and insulting military families. The contrast couldn’t be more striking. Republicans have a great choice in [Haley]. She’ll be a President we are ALWAYS proud of.”


The Republican primary in South Carolina is slated to take place on February 24. Trump and Haley are the last two remaining major candidates in the running.

After contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and the Virgin Islands, Trump has 63 delegates while Haley has 17. A candidate requires 1,215 delegates to win the nomination.
