Nikki Haley Slams Donald Trump Over Aleksei Navalny’s Suspicious Death: ‘Putin Murdered His Political Opponent And Trump Hasn’t Said A Word’

The recent announcement of the death of Russian opposition leader Aleksei A. Navalny by Russian authorities has sparked widespread condemnation, including from numerous Republicans. However, one prominent figure, presidential candidate Nikki Haley, took a stronger stance by using this tragedy to criticize her rival in the GOP primary, former President Donald Trump.

Haley leveraged her criticism of Russian President Vladimir V. Putin to target Trump, highlighting his previous statements praising Putin. In a post on social media, she pointed out Trump’s past defense of Putin, including comments made during his 2015 presidential campaign where he downplayed allegations against Putin. Haley criticized Trump for remaining silent on Navalny’s death and emphasized his lack of response compared to his focus on personal legal drama and fake polls on social media.

The tension between Haley and Trump escalated as she continued to emphasize Trump’s foreign policy approach, particularly his stance towards Putin. She highlighted Trump’s statement in South Carolina where he hinted at possibly “encouraging” Russia to attack NATO allies for failing to meet their military alliance payments, labeling Putin as a “thug” and criticizing Trump for siding with him.

Haley’s criticism of Trump’s handling of the situation surrounding Navalny’s death reflects a broader divide within the Republican Party regarding foreign policy and relations with Russia. As the GOP primary heats up, Haley’s vocal opposition to Trump’s stance on Putin could further shape the debate within the party on these critical issues.

It remains to be seen how Trump will respond to Haley’s criticism and whether this will impact his standing in the GOP primary race. The controversy surrounding Navalny’s death has brought to light deeper divisions within the Republican Party on foreign policy and the approach to dealing with authoritarian regimes like Russia under Putin’s leadership.
