Nikki Haley sparks controversy with claim of ‘Democrat plant’ asking about Civil War cause, shifts blame to slavery in second attempt at answer

Nikki Haley Accuses Biden Campaign Of Sending ‘Democrat Plant’ To Ask Civil War Question

Former South Carolina Governor and Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley is blaming the Biden campaign for the controversy over her handling of a question about the ‘cause of the Civil War’. During a town hall meeting in Berlin, New Hampshire, Haley was asked about the cause of the Civil War and gave a botched answer. She later tried to correct herself by blaming slavery, but the damage had been done.

Haley appeared on the Pulse of NH show Good Morning New Hampshire on Thursday morning, where she addressed the issue. She claimed that the question had been asked by a “Democrat plant” sent by the Biden campaign. The complete audio of her interview is available for listening on their website.

The anonymous questioner at the town hall, however, insists that he asked the question because Haley had given a similar answer back in 2010 when she was running for governor in South Carolina. He wanted to know if her views had since changed.

Subsequently, at a town hall meeting at Kennett High School in North Conway, Haley again addressed the ’cause of the Civil War’ question. She reaffirmed that the Civil War was about slavery but also emphasized that it was about the role of government and the freedoms of every individual.

Haley’s 2010 answer is an apparent reference to an interview she held with a southern heritage activist group, the since-defunct Palmetto Patriots. In the interview, Haley had implied that the Civil War was about “tradition” versus “change” and focused on individual rights and liberty.

Haley’s claim that the question was posed by a “Democrat plant” has sparked controversy, with some questioning the validity of her accusation. It remains to be seen whether this controversy will have any impact on her presidential campaign.

It seems that Nikki Haley’s response to the question about the Civil War has stirred up a heated debate and plunged her into a political mire. It remains to be seen how her campaign will recover from this controversy and whether her accusation against the Biden campaign will hold water.
