New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu (R) said Donald Trump has “no energy” and can “barely read a teleprompter” as he campaigns for Nikki Haley ahead of Tuesday’s primary election.
Sununu, who endorsed Haley last month, told CNN’s Jake Tapper on The Lead Monday that the former U.N. ambassador has the momentum heading into the primary despite recent polling showing Trump with a double digit lead in the state.
“It’s all about the voter turnout. It’s all about the enthusiasm, where’s the energy. Not just what people say on a phone or how they you know, respond to an online text or something,” Sununu said.
“It’s really about the energy of that campaign. Trump has no energy. The guy can barely read a teleprompter right now,” he continued. “All the wind is behind Nikki’s sails. So I just think the sky’s the limit.”
Sununu’s comments come as Haley is questioning Trump’s mental fitness after the former president confused her for former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) at a rally in Concord, New Hampshire last week.
Trump has defended himself by boasting about acing cognitive tests and has challenged Haley to compare cognitive tests results.
