( – Reps. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) and Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.), vocal supporters of former President Donald Trump, blasted Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley on March 25 during Trump’s first big official presidential rally for the 2024 presidential race.

The event took place in Waco, Texas. During the rally, the two lawmakers specifically spoke up against Haley, who had previously served as the ambassador to the United Nations under the Trump administration. The criticisms of Haley related both to her foreign policy agenda as well as to her alleged lack of appeal.

According to The Hill, Gaetz specifically said that Haley has claimed that they needed to “kick all of the world’s bullies with heels” but that it is not possible for them to go around the globe starting wars in every location and “sand dune” that Haley believes they should. He added that Haley should “keep clicking her heels.”

Greene also spoke up against Haley and stated that there were no other Republicans with the network that Trump does. She proceeded to say that not only does Haley not have it, but also Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis also does not have a “list of names” as Trump does. She added that Trump is the only one who knows “how to clean out the swamp.”

While DeSantis has been facing a number of attacks in the past few weeks by other Republicans who support Trump, and Trump himself, he has not yet announced whether or not he is going to be running in the 2024 presidential race. On the other hand, The Hill reports that Trump has been “relatively tame” about Haley deciding to run.
