‘Incredibly Reckless’: Nikki Haley Changes Tune, Goes After Trump Over Indictment

Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, who previously called the indictment of former President Donald Trump “vendetta politics,” has since changed her tune, calling her former boss “incredibly reckless” on Monday.

Haley initially reacted to Trump’s indictment over allegedly mishandling classified documents last week, calling the charges “prosecutorial overreach.” However, the former South Carolina governor went after her former boss Monday on Fox News, and said the contents of the indictment suggest he was “incredibly reckless with our national security.”

“Two things can be true at the same time: One, the DOJ and FBI have lost all credibility with the American people, and getting rid of just senior management isn’t going to be enough to fix this, this is going to take a complete overhaul, and we have to do that. Two, the second thing can also be true, if this indictment is true, if what it says is actually the case, President Trump was incredibly reckless with our national security,” Haley told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum.

“I’m a military spouse, my husband’s about to deploy this weekend,” said Haley. “This puts all of our military men and women in danger if you are going to talk about what our military is capable of or how we would go about invading or doing something with one of our enemies.”

Haley noted how this is the second indictment of the former president, and more are likely ahead, and voiced her concerns about the “direction of the country.”

“We’ve got to have someone that can win a general election, we’ve got to have someone that can right the ship on this country, and get us back in shape,” said Haley.
