The chair of the South Carolina Republican Party blasted Ann Coulter on Wednesday for her tweet calling for the deportation of Gov. Nikki Haley (R).

“[W]hat Ann Coulter said is despicable,” Matt Moore told Time.

On Tuesday, Coulter slammed Haley as she delivered the GOP response to the State of the Union. In her speech, Haley called for civility in politics and indirectly went after Republican frontrunner Donald Trump over his proposal to ban Muslims. In response, Coulter tweeted, “Trump should deport Nikki Haley.”

“Winning elections is about addition and multiplication,” Moore said. “We have to be a party that’s focused on bringing people into the tent to be successful in November.”

“And in doing that, words matter, tone matters, and the way we say things matters,” he added. “There is nothing wrong with being respectful and polite to people in an attempt to win their vote.”
