On Tuesday, former President Donald Trump attacked Nikki Haley, referring to her by her first name, Nimarata.
This represents the most recent instance in which Trump has employed humorous nicknames to disparage his political opponents.
Nimarata Nikki Randhawa, Haley’s given name, is derived from her family’s Indian heritage.
She adopted the surname of her spouse, Michael Haley, after their marriage.
In an attack on Nimarata, Trump misspelled her name as “Nimbra” in a recent post on his social media platform Truth Social.
“Governor Chris Sununu, the now failing Governor of New Hampshire, where I am beating his endorsed candidate, Nimbra, by big numbers, and DeSanctimonious by even bigger numbers, should spend more time keeping Democrats from voting in the Republican Primary – How ridiculous is that?” Trump wrote.
“Anyway, it doesn’t matter, because Nimbra doesn’t have what it takes. She’s weak on China, Russia, Borders, and Crime, but never saw a war she didn’t like. I defeated ISIS, Rebuilt our Military, and brought our soldiers back home. I hope Sununu’s endorsement of Nimbra has more strength than Kim Reynolds’ Iowa endorsement of DeSanctus! How did that work out? MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!”
Recently, Trump further endorsed an online post that erroneously stated Haley was ineligible to run for president due to the fact that her parents did not hold U.S. citizenship at the time of her birth.
Being a native of Bamberg, South Carolina, Haley technically holds U.S. citizenship.
Additionally, Vivek Ramaswamy, who endorsed Trump and withdrew from the Republican presidential contest on Monday, has attempted to also criticize Haley for her given name.
