Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has attacked rival Donald Trump for disrespecting “all veterans” of the US military after he cruelly suggested her husband, Major Michael Haley, was absent from the campaign trail because he was embarrassed by his wife’s poor polling, rather than serving overseas.

“When Donald Trump attacks one veteran, he’s attacking all of them,” she told Jake Tapper on CNN on Monday evening.

“If he can’t understand the sacrifice our soldiers and veterans give for this country, then he doesn’t deserve to be commander-in-chief.”

She has also attacked Mr Trump on social media by listing some of his past remarks about America’s servicemen and women, reminding him that he had referred to soldiers as “suckers” and “losers” and once observed at Arlington Cemetery: “What as in it for them?”

Ahead of the all-important South Carolina primary on 24 February, Ms Haley has also blamed her competitor for the Republican Party’s disastrous recent run in Congress, which saw the House fail to impeach homeland security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the state of illegal immigration at the US southern border and the collapse of a major funding bill last Tuesday.

Haley accuses Trump of ‘attacking all veterans’ by disrespecting her husband’s military service

Trump’s challenger for the Republican presidential nomination was interviewed by CNN’s Jake Tapper last night and continued to go after her rival for his absurd attack on her husband’s absence from the campaign trail (he’s serving overseas, something Trump never cared to).

She shrewdly extended her attack as part of a strategy to make it about the former president’s cynical disdain for “all veterans” and the US military generally.

Yesterday, she had this to say on the same subject, which is a cute line.

She has also been hitting back at him on social media, fighting the war on many fronts.

Trump says he saw migrant shoplifting a refrigerator ‘the other day’

Trump’s Nato remarks were not the only odd things he had to say this weekend, naturally.

On Friday, he addressed a crowd of supporters at the National Rifle Association’s Great American Outdoor Show in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where he made several surprising comments, including how he saw a migrant stealing a refrigerator and claimed the state’s name would be changed if he isn’t re-elected president.

Haley says Trump’s fingerprints all over recent Republican chaos

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has blamed rival Donald Trump for the GOP’s disastrous recent run in Congress, which saw the House fail to impeach homeland security secretary Alejandro Mayorkas over the state of illegal immigration at the US southern border and the collapse of a major funding bill last Tuesday.

“Republicans had a really bad day,” Haley told a crowd in Newberry, South Carolina, while campaigning on Saturday afternoon ahead of her home state’s primary on 24 February.

Also citing an appeals court finding that Trump was not immune to prosecution last week and the news that Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel could be forced out on his say so, the candidate said: “The reality is chaos follows him. On that day of all those losses, he had his fingerprints all over it.”

“What is happening?” Haley asked. “We can’t be a country in disarray and a world on fire and go through four more years of chaos. We won’t survive it.”

Trump claims it would be ‘disloyal’ if Taylor Swift endorses Biden

Hours before Sunday’s Super Bowl between the Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers, Donald Trump made one last, desperate appeal for the political support of pop superstar Taylor Swift, knowing she was flying in to watch her boyfriend Travis Kelce in action and would dominate coverage of the big game.

“I signed and was responsible for the Music Modernization Act for Taylor Swift and all other Musical Artists,” the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination wrote on Truth Social.

So what is the Music Modernization Act? Joe Sommerlad explains:
