Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, R-Ga., on Wednesday lashed out at 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley as “Bush in heels” for what the GOP lawmaker regards as Haley’s proximity to more traditional Republicanism.
“Nikki Haley is just another George (or Jeb!) Bush,” Greene griped, referring to the nation’s 43rd president in his brother, the former Florida governor who ran unsuccessfully in the 2016 presidential campaign.
“She is weak on the border, doesn’t want a wall, claimed ‘legal immigrants are more patriotic than most Americans these days,’ and she defended Obama when Pres. Trump criticized his terrible open-borders policy,” Greene continued. “And Nikki Haley refused to support transgender bathroom bill to protect children.”
“If we wanted a ‘Bush in heels,’ Republicans would vote for Liz Cheney.”
