President Joe Biden tried to get supporters of former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to support him on Wednesday after she dropped out of the GOP presidential race without endorsing former President Donald Trump, who is now set to be the Republican Party’s presidential nominee.

“Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters. I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign. I know there is a lot we won’t agree on,” he said in a statement.

In order to convince Haley’s supporters to back him, Biden added, “But on the fundamental issues of preserving American democracy, on standing up for the rule of law, on treating each other with decency and dignity and respect, on preserving NATO and standing up to America’s adversaries, I hope and believe we can find common ground.”

In a tweet, he shared a screenshot of Trump’s attack on Haley with a highlighted part that reads, “Anybody that makes a ‘Contribution’ to Birdbrain, from this moment forth, will be permanently barred from the MAGA camp. We don’t want them, and will not accept them.”

Biden captioned the tweet, “You don’t have to agree with me on everything to know MAGA extremism is a threat to this country. We need everyone on board—join our campaign.”

Trump has also encouraged Haley’s supporters to join his movement in a Truth Social post just before she finished her announcement that she was dropping out of the race.

“I’d like to thank my family, friends, and the Great Republican Party for helping me to produce, by far, the most successful Super Tuesday in HISTORY, and would further like to invite all of the Haley supporters to join the greatest movement in the history of our Nation,” he stated.


Haley, however, did not endorse him during her announcement of her decision to step out of the presidential race. Congratulating him on his victory, she said it is “now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him.”

“And I hope he does that. At its best, politics is about bringing people into your cause, not turning them away. And our conservative cause badly needs more people. This is now his time for choosing,” she added.
