President Joe Biden on Sunday defended Nikki Haley’s husband, after former President Donald Trump dragged the former South Carolina governor’s spouse into the swirl of personal attacks he lobbed against her over the weekend.
During a rally in Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina, Trump questioned the whereabouts of Haley’s husband, Maj. Michael Haley, who is serving an active duty deployment in the Horn of Africa for the South Carolina Army National Guard.
“Where’s her husband? Oh, he’s away. He’s away,”
Trump said, seemingly implying Haley, the sole high-profile Republican still battling him for the GOP nomination, was having challenges in her marriage that would explain her husband’s absence.
