The Trump campaign reportedly left a birdcage and bird food outside of Nikki Haley's hotel room.
"After a day of campaigning, this is the message waiting for me outside my hotel room," Nikki Haley wrote when sharing a photo of the spectacle. A note on the cage indicated that it was from the Trump campaign. In her post on X, Haley also included the hashtags "#PrettyPatheticTryAgain" and "#YouJustMadeMyCaseForMe."
Marc Caputo of The Messenger reported that "the Trump camp texted me the birdcage-and-feed photo in front of Haley’s Des Moines hotel door."
Trump has been using the derogatory term "Birdbrain" to refer to Haley. Haley, who previously served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations during a portion of Trump's White House tenure, is currently one of the Republican candidates vying for the GOP presidential nomination.
"Nikki 'Birdbrain' Haley was exposed for her caustic DISLOYALTY & LIES about the Republican Party, and me. Doesn't have what it takes, NEVER DID!" Trump wrote in a post on Truth Social while giving his take on the second GOP presidential primary debate of the 2024 cycle. Trump has skipped the two primary debates held so far.
"MAGA, or I, will never go for Birdbrain Nikki Haley," Trump declared in another post on Truth Social last week. "No loyalty, plenty of lies! 'I will never run against our great President,' she said,'he has done an outstanding job.' To which I responded,'How nice of you to say, Nikki,' knowing full well that her words mean nothing. She even came to Mar-a-Lago with her family, 'bearing gifts.' Anyway, Birdbrain doesn’t have the TALENT or TEMPERAMENT to do the job. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN."
Haley shared a screenshot of Trump's post and commented, "Love this. It means we are in 2nd and moving up fast. Bring it!"
