DeSantis, Haley take on Trump during Town Hall

With ten days to go until the Iowa Caucuses, Ron DeSantis and Nikki Haley took the stage in Des Moines at a CNN Town Hall Thursday night. Both Presidential contenders tried to prove their electability to voters and warned that nominating Trump would cost them the White House in November.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis sought to show a more relatable side to his personality when he took the stage. In the past, DeSantis has commented that the indictments against Trump helped him garner support among Republicans who view legal proceedings as politically motivated. He warned Iowa voters that the trials against Trump will hurt him against Biden, adding, “Whatever may be beneficial in the primary doesn’t mean it’s beneficial in the general election.”

DeSantis also accused the former President of not being “pro-life”. DeSantis’ attacks on Trump’s abortion stance were perhaps the strongest on Thursday night. “He has flip-flopped on this issue,” DeSantis said. “I don’t know if it’s because of political convenience or this is where he always believed in.”

Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley portrayed Donald Trump as a candidate whose personal drama would take over the GOP. “Chaos follows him. And we can’t have a country in disarray and a world on fire and go through four more years of chaos. We won’t survive it,” Haley said.

Speaking of her time in Trump’s White House, Haley said she used to tell Trump that he is “his own worst enemy,” and criticized Trump’s praise of certain dictators. “We have a country to save, and that means no more drama. No more taking things personally,” the former UN ambassador said.
