Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) questioned Donald Trump’s cognitive function on Sunday after the former president confused Republican Presidential candidate Nikki Haley with former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Trump confused the two women at a rally in New Hampshire on Friday, claiming that Haley was “in charge of security” at the Capitol on Jan. 6 and turned down his request for “10,000 people, soldiers, National Guards.”
Norman, a campaign surrogate for Haley, argued in a Fox News Sunday interview that Trump wouldn’t have made that mistake if he was younger.
“I would say 25 years ago, he wouldn’t have made that mistake,” Norman said. “But he kept saying, ‘Nikki Haley did this with the National Guard.’ He was talking about Nancy Pelosi. And that’s another example of — he wouldn’t have made that mistake if he was younger.”
Norman also made the case that if elected, Trump would only be limited to just one term.
“People need to know, Donald Trump can only give you four years,” Norman said. “That’s like a football team can only play half of the game. It’s going to take eight years to get this country straight. But Nikki’s youth, and the fact that she can give eight years, and I would also make the argument it’s really three years — because the last year of a term is political. President Trump is going to be tied up in legal fights. We need somebody that can come in and work.”
