Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., told Newsmax on Wednesday that former GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley’s voters will have to choose in November between supporting former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

“I don’t know about this morning, but I think, eventually, people who voted for Nikki Haley will be faced with a choice between President Biden, if he’s the nominee, or some other Democrat who will basically implement the same policies that are destroying this country, and President Trump,” Johnson told “Wake Up America.”

“They’ll look back at President Trump’s administration as one where we got into no wars, we had a very strong economy until the pandemic hit, and, by and large, Donald Trump put a little fear into our adversaries’ hearts and they weren’t as adventurous as they are under President Biden’s weakness.”

Haley announced the end of her presidential campaign in remarks Wednesday morning in her hometown of Charleston, South Carolina.

When asked what he makes of Trump being the GOP nominee for three consecutive election cycles, Johnson said, “That’s who the Republican primary voters selected.”

“Again, they look back at the country under President Trump versus the disaster that the Biden administration and Democratic governance has been for America,” Johnson continued.

“The open borders, 40-year high inflation, the war on fossil fuels, the weakness that has emboldened our adversaries and they go well, whether you agree or disagree with everything that Donald Trump says or how he conducts himself or how he behaves, you have to admit that he kept us out of wars and produced a country that was in pretty good shape.

According to Sen. Ron Johnson, Nikki Haley’s supporters may face a tough decision in November between backing former President Donald Trump or President Joe Biden.

In an interview with Newsmax, Johnson expressed his belief that Haley’s voters would ultimately need to choose between the policies of Trump’s administration and those of the Democrats.

Reflecting on Trump’s tenure, Johnson highlighted achievements such as a stable economy and avoiding military conflicts, contrasting them with what he perceived as weaknesses in Biden’s leadership. He suggested that Haley’s supporters would likely appreciate Trump’s record on these fronts.

Johnson noted that Trump’s nomination for the GOP candidacy for three consecutive cycles reflects the choice of Republican primary voters.

He emphasized the stark contrast between the Trump administration’s policies and what he views as the shortcomings of the Biden administration and Democratic governance, citing concerns about inflation, immigration, and foreign policy.

Johnson’s remarks underscore the political dynamics at play as Haley exits the presidential race, suggesting that Haley’s supporters may gravitate towards Trump’s platform due to their dissatisfaction with the current administration’s policies and performance.
