Former South Carolina governor and Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley said that if Donald Trump is the GOP nominee, he will not win the general election.

Haley argued that while Trump may win Republican primaries, he will not defeat the Democratic nominee in the general election.

CNN’s Jake Tapper said, “You said that no matter what happens Saturday in the South Carolina primary, you’re staying in the race.”

He continued, “I wonder how much is your continuing to run for president, no matter what happened Saturday, how much is it about the chance that Donald Trump could possibly be a convicted felon later this year and you want to be a plan B as it were for the Republican Party.”

Haley replied, “What I’m trying to tell all Republicans and anybody, independents as well, anybody that’s voting in those primaries, is if you want a change in our country, which I think the entire country wants a change, we won’t get a change if we don’t win an election.”

Haley stated that if there is a change in leadership, the party needs to win the election first.

She predicted that if Trump is the nominee, the next president will either be her as the first female Republican president, or Kamala Harris as the first female Democratic president.

“Donald Trump will not win the general election,” she insisted.

She concluded, “You can have him win any primary you want. He will not win a general election. We will have a female president of the United States. It will either be me or it will be Kamala Harris. But if Donald Trump is the nominee, you can mark my words, he will not win a general election. And what I say to everybody is, don’t complain about what happens in a general election if you don’t really think about that in this primary. We can do better.”

Haley urged voters to consider electability in the primaries in order to avoid complaints about the general election results.
