( – The Biden reelection team has been actively suggesting that former President Donald Trump is not seeking the support of voters who backed Republican Nikki Haley, emphasizing a lack of outreach to this group.

The Biden campaign’s message, articulated through an email, was blunt: “Trump Outreach to Haley Voters: Nonexistent,” highlighting a perceived disinterest from Trump in courting moderate, independent, or Haley-aligned voters.

James Singer, a spokesperson for the Biden campaign, pointed out the exclusivity of Trump’s approach, stating, “Donald Trump and his campaign have made it clear: If you are not part of the MAGA disciples then you aren’t welcome in his campaign.” He contrasted this with Biden’s approach, emphasizing that Biden is inviting independent, moderate, and Nikki Haley supporters who prioritize democracy and economic stability to join his coalition, in stark contrast to Trump’s exclusionary tactics.

The Biden team has consistently maintained that Trump is uninterested in winning over Haley’s supporters since her withdrawal from the race. This stance has opened a strategic avenue for the Biden-Harris campaign to attract these voters, positioning Trump as alienating them.

President Biden himself declared on March 6th, “Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters. I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign,” signaling an open invitation to those voters.

Further highlighting the rift, the Biden campaign noted that Trump has not reached out to Haley following her exit from the presidential race. They also pointed to comments from former Trump adviser Steve Bannon, who dismissively said on his podcast, “Screw Nikki Haley — we don’t need her endorsement,” illustrating the dismissive attitude towards Haley and her supporters.

Haley’s presidential campaign termination, which effectively set the stage for a Biden-Trump electoral rematch, was notable for her lack of endorsement for Trump, adding to the narrative of division and the potential realignment of her supporters.
