South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley caused a stir last week with her rebuttal to President Barack Obama's final State of the Union, in which she took a shot at Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
Haley cautioned against listening to “the siren call of the angriest voices” in the GOP, laying some of the blame for dysfunction in Washington on the Republican party.
“We need to recognize our contributions to the erosion of the public trust in America's leadership,” Haley said in her speech. “We need to accept that we've played a role in how and why our government is broken.”
Her speech drew both criticism and praise from Republican candidates and conservative pundits.
Trump was joined by candidates Carly Fiorina and Mike Huckabee, as well as pundits Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter in condemning Haley’s comments, as well as her stance on immigration.
