Haley Shares Halloween Costume Meme About Trump

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley shared a Halloween costume meme about former President Donald Trump to her X account.

Haley shared a Spirit Halloween costume template that originated in 2019 and typically rises in popularity during the Halloween season. The meme referred to Trump as the "weakest general election candidate ever."

The meme joked about Trump's legal troubles, "terrible poll numbers," "social media rants," and "temper tantrums."

"Democrats are ecstatic about the prospect of running against Donald Trump," Haley wrote in her post. "They couldn't dream up a worse general election candidate if they tried."

"Between his legal drama, his terrible poll numbers, and his confusion, Trump will hand Democrats a big victory," she added.

"A Nikki Haley victory would be worse for America and for the GOP than a Trump defeat," wrote author and podcaster Michael Malice.

Malice included a meme of former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Haley noting their similarities.

"In what universe does this war mongering broad thinks sh---ing on the most motivated voters in her own party is going to 'win' her anything?" asked journalist and podcast host Mindy Robinson. "You're a Deep State candidate trying to start WW3 for money and power, GFY Nikki Haley (not your real name.)"

Other users noted the meme fell flat because it was shared in early February.

"Nice outdated and out-of-season meme format, War Karen," wrote YouTuber Lauren Chen. "Guess drunk progressive wine aunts are the only ones willing to intern for such a campaign."

Other users questioned the meme's suggestion that Trump's polling numbers were terrible, noting Trump holds a dominating lead over Haley.

Despite Trump's dominating lead over Haley and other former Republican presidential candidates throughout the primary season, Haley has insisted she will remain in the race through her home state of South Carolina's upcoming primary and into Super Tuesday.

"We have had two states that have voted," Haley said during a Thursday appearance on CNN. "You need 1,215 delegates. Donald Trump has 32. I have 17. We still have 48 states and more territories to go before we get there.”

Haley said her campaign's strategy has been to "build on momentum."

"We started with 2 percent in Iowa. We ended with 20 percent," she said. "We went into New Hampshire. We got 43 percent. In South Carolina, we want to get even more competitive than that."

Trump currently holds a commanding 53.5-point advantage over Haley, according to RealClearPolitics.

The two remaining Republican candidates will face off in the Nevada primary on Feb. 8.
