  • The fake accounts ridiculed Trump's critics from both parties and attacked Nikki Haley, the former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador who is challenging her onetime boss for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination.
  • Few have navigated the turbulent politics of the Trump era like Nikki Haley. She once vowed not to step in the way if former President Donald Trump ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2024. But on Wednesday, she will become the first major Republican candidate to enter the race against him.
  • January 31, 2023 — Remarks from former President Donald Trump during his first 2024 campaign stop in South Carolina; a look at tension between state House Republicans and the House Freedom Caucus; the latest on major infrastructure projects in the Palmetto State; and more.

Nancy Mace and Tom Rice are both facing spirited primary challenges from rivals backed by former President Donald Trump.
