Haley on Trump: ‘It Accomplishes Nothing to Get Mad at Anybody That Criticizes You’

“He's accomplished a lot during his career. It accomplishes nothing to get mad at anybody that criticizes you. So every time someone criticizes him, he goes and makes a political attack back. That's not who we are as Republicans. That’s not what we do. That's not what I want my South Carolinians to do, that's not what I want us to do going forward. So that's the part – you know, yesterday I think they started actually talking about issues and I got excited because they were actually talking about policy,” Haley said.

“That's what Americans want to hear is policy. They don’t want to hear how someone offended you. They want to know they're sending someone up to the White House that's going to be calm and cool-tempered and not get mad at someone just because they criticize them. We would really have a world war if that happened.”

As the debate over illegal immigration continues, Haley urged Republicans to remember the fabric of America came from legal immigrants.

“I'm here because my mom and dad took that step to come here. There is so much talent that came from legal immigrants. We should never say a negative word about that because that talent is what has made this country so great. If you want to talk about tackling illegal immigration, then let’s talk about it,” she said.

“But we don’t need to attack so many millions of people who came here, who have worked hard, fought hard, and done it the right way like my parents to make them feel like they're not part of this country, because they're very much a part of this country and they're proud to call themselves Americans.”
