Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley condemned former President Donald Trump’s attacks on her husband, who is deployed overseas with the National Guard, calling them “disgusting.”

Trump’s remarks, made during a rally and on social media, questioned the whereabouts of Haley’s husband and suggested he should return home to help her campaign.

“What happened to her husband? Where is he? He’s gone,” Trump said, adding that her campaign failure is “an embarrassment to her wonderful husband” and suggested “he should come back home to help save her dying campaign.”

“It’s disgusting. I mean, every bit of it is disgusting,” Haley said of Trump’s comments.

She highlighted the disrespect toward veterans and criticized Trump’s history of derogatory comments about the military.

“You know, to sit there and mock my husband for not being with me on the presidential trail because he is deployed and serving our country. You mock one veteran, you’re mocking all veterans,” Haley said.

“But this is a pattern, he’s done this over and over again. Whether he went and calls military members suckers. Whether he was at Arlington Cemetery saying what was in it for them, why would they do this?”

“The problem with Trump is he’s never been anywhere near a uniform,” she said.

She emphasized the sacrifice of service members and expressed concern about Trump’s attitude towards the military, stating that anyone who supports his remarks is also “disgusting.”

“He apparently had some sort of foot reason that he says he couldn’t do that. But the reality is the closest he’s come to harm’s way is a golf ball hitting him on a golf cart. These men and women sacrifice for us every day. They’re willing to shed blood. That’s the values that made this country great, and anybody that excuses what he continues to say against the military is hugely mistaken because this is going to be the president of the United States,” she said.
