Nikki Haley’s bet that Trumpism will outlast President Trump

2. Her argument against Biden is similar to Trump’s

Let’s say Biden were to win in November. If Haley were to run for president four years later, her campaign would depend on being able to effectively argue that he wasn’t doing a good job. On Monday, she was campaigning to keep Biden out of office for Trump, which is different. But her attacks on Biden are still worth noting.

Most speakers focused on trying to cast Biden as a pawn to socialism. Haley did that too, but she also framed Biden as the cog in the wheel for Democrats’ failures over the past decade.

Biden, Haley argued, is the common thread in the Democratic Party then and now. Which, of course, is true. He’s been on Democrats’ national ticket three of the four past presidential elections.

“Last time Joe’s boss was Obama,” she said. “This time it would be Pelosi, Sanders and the squad,” she said, referring to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and four newer, more liberal members of Congress. “Their vision for America is socialism. And we know that socialism has failed everywhere.”
