Trump Jokes About Tim Scott’s Engagement While Hosting Former Republican Opponents At New Hampshire Rally In Final Primary Push

Aiexpress – During a rally on the eve of the first in the nation primary, Former President Donald Trump expressed his astonishment at Sen. Tim Scott’s recent engagement in Laconia, New Hampshire.

“Everyone is familiar with him, and today’s news is making waves – it’s the most talked-about story right now. He’s getting married!” Trump announced, before inviting Scott to speak. “None of us saw this coming, we’re all wondering what’s really going on?”

Scott (R-SC), 58, who has remained unmarried throughout his life, surprised many when he announced his engagement to Mindy Noce in a late Sunday revelation. The South Carolina senator had successfully kept his girlfriend’s identity under wraps until the third GOP debate in November, where he finally disclosed it. However, he later withdrew from the race.

During his final rally before the primary election in New Hampshire, Trump showcased party unity by warmly welcoming three of his former 2024 presidential opponents at the Margate Resort.

During his brief time behind the podium, Scott praised Trump for his effective handling of low crime rates and inflation. He promptly handed the microphone back to the former president, who is 77 years old.


“How many of you want me to stop talking so you can hear from your next president, Donald J. Trump? Four more years!” Scott exclaimed to a chorus of cheers, graciously stepping aside to let Trump take the spotlight once again.

Scott, the final of the three former 2024 adversaries, was showcased on stage by Trump to emphasize Republican unity. Preceding him, biotech entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy and North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum delivered concise stump speeches in support of Trump.

“Let’s all do our part and come out on Tuesday night to end this primary right here,” Ramaswamy passionately urged the crowd. “We’re on our way to defeating Joe Biden in November, and I firmly believe that our nation’s best days are still ahead of us.”

“Our country was in a safer state, and our economy was undoubtedly stronger than it is at present,” Burgum expressed. “The presence of Donald Trump is imperative. America is in dire need of Donald Trump.”

“Every day, the Republican Party is growing more and more united, and I must say, it’s quite impressive. Look at what happened recently. We had a formidable competitor in Ron DeSantis, who put up a strong fight. I have to give credit where it’s due, he fought hard and he fought well.”

Former Republican presidential hopefuls bolstered President Trump’s confidence when Florida Governor Ron DeSantis announced his withdrawal from the 2024 contest and threw his support behind Trump. This move by DeSantis aligns him with the majority of the other 11 former Republican candidates who have also endorsed Trump.

According to Trump, there are currently only two people left in the race, and he predicts that one of them will be eliminated tomorrow, while the other will be eliminated in November.

Trump’s main concern is that he still has one Republican opponent to overcome: Nikki Haley, his former US ambassador to the UN.

“It’s unfortunate that not everyone prioritizes our country’s interests. In New Hampshire, Nikki Haley has formed a troubling alliance with RINOS, Never Trumpers, and Americans for No Prosperity,” expressed Trump, expressing his disappointment about the endorsement of Haley by Americans for Prosperity Action, which is backed by the Koch brothers.

Nikki Haley has a team of individuals who support various ideologies that may not align with her values. These individuals are in favor of amnesty, promoting China’s interests, advocating for open borders, supporting military interventions, backing the deep state, and favoring Joe Biden.

Haley finds herself in a challenging position as she goes head-to-head with Trump.

Surprisingly, during her time as governor, she had promoted Scott to senator in 2013. It is worth mentioning that Scott officially endorsed Trump on Friday.

On Monday, Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) also expressed her support for Trump. It is worth noting that Trump had previously endorsed Mace’s primary opponent in the 2022 GOP race. In the last election cycle, Mace received an endorsement and campaign support from Haley.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster has also given his endorsement to Trump, following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Haley.

“People fail to grasp the fact that I appointed Haley to that position with the intention of supporting Henry McMaster’s bid for governor. It’s actually true,” Trump jokingly remarked.

Haley attributes the absence of endorsements from her home state to her firm stance on legislature during her tenure as the governor.

South Carolina holds great importance as the upcoming race following New Hampshire, scheduled for February 24th, just a month away.

Haley is participating in the Nevada primary instead of the Caucus, where actual delegates are available. Apart from New Hampshire and South Carolina, there are also the Nevada Caucus and the Virgin Island Caucus.

Haley remains hopeful that she can achieve a surprising victory in the Granite State.

According to recent polling data, it appears that DeSantis’ departure from the race has had a positive impact on Trump’s popularity. Trump currently boasts a support rate of 54.9% in New Hampshire, with Haley following closely behind at 36.7%, as reported by the latest RealClearPolitics aggregate.
