Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis went after former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on a local South Carolina radio show on Tuesday and questioned her "leadership" based on a tweet following the death of George Floyd in 2020.
"I remember when the George Floyd riots were happening, I called out the National Guard," DeSantis told WORD 106.9's Tara Show in South Carolina on Tuesday.
"I said I’m standing with police, she was tweeting that it needed to be personal and painful for every single person. I’m thinking to myself, ‘Why does that need to be personal and painful for you or me? We had nothing to do with it.’"
"It just shows an example of her adopting this left-wing mindset and accepting the narrative. We need leaders who are going to fight the narrative. We need leaders who are going to fight back against the left and beat the left, and I’m the only one running that has a firm track record of defeating the Democrats and defeating the left on all these issues."
DeSantis was referring to a tweet from Haley in May 2020 where she wrote, "It’s important to understand that the death of George Floyd was personal and painful for many. In order to heal, it needs to be personal and painful for everyone."

We spent the last couple of days celebrating our son’s graduation. Tonight I turned on the news and am heartbroken. It’s important to understand that the death of George Floyd was personal and painful for many. In order to heal, it needs to be personal and painful for everyone.— Nikki Haley (@NikkiHaley) May 30, 2020
Desantis is done.
He committed political suicide.
DeSantis has a point. That’s a very disgusting comment by Haley.
Floyd’s loved ones are the only ones who had reason to grieve. The rest of us don’t need to heal because a bad guy died from his own actions. That’s just absurd.
I think they’re in love 🥰
This race is sort of like the Daytona 500.
Jimmy Johnson in the lead and Kyle Busch and Bubba Wallace battering for second place, while also trying hard to catch a draft from the lead driver.
But in this case Lil Ronnie and nasty Nicki are both a lap down and looking for a caution in order to be given a lucky dog pass. Meanwhile Donald Trump is once again sailing to victory.
Nascar fans will understand the analogy. ;>)
She’s done numerous things in the name of “healing.”
Guess what? No one was healed.
No wonder Nikki is the darling of the northeast press lunatics.
Just kidding. Trump said this.
Just because George Fentanyl died because of wait for it, fentanyl, e don’t need to grieve for this man. Nikki Haley leads with emotion, just like a dem rat.
You're forgetting who your Daddy is there Ron...
I think she is a Dem Rat.
Would explain a lot.
hey nikki- i wasn’t injured- i don’t need to heal- george killed himself- noone else- I’m sorry he chose drugs- but he reaped the consequences of his choice- end of story-
We don’t need a liar and racist like you running this country- You bought the liberal lies hook line and sinker- we don’t need gullible people leading the country-
I see she’s all studied up on her CRT rules.
All whites are guilty of, well... Being white or something.
It’s sad witnessing the desperation to stay relevant.
