Trump is reportedly privately asking people around him why Nikki Haley didn’t drop out of the race after losing New Hampshire as he has increased threats and attacks against her.
Kaitlin Collins of CNN tweeted:
Trump is celebrating his victory in New Hampshire tonight by publicly attacking Nikki Haley for refusing to drop out, criticizing her outfit, implying she would be under investigation if she did win, going after his former White House press secretary and privately inquiring about…

Trump’s tantrum spilled out during his victory speech when he threatened Haley:
And just a little note to Nikki. She’s not gonna win, but if she did, she would be under investigation by those people in 15 minutes. And I could tell you five reasons why already, not big reasons, a little stuff that she doesn’t want to talk about, but she will be under investigation within minutes.
And so would Ron have been, but he decided to get out, he decided to get out. Now Vivek I don’t think would be at all, because he’s perfect, right?

Trump really thought that Haley was going to quit after losing New Hampshire even though she gave no indication that a loss would cause her to end her campaign.
Donald Trump isn’t taking his smaller than expected margin of victory well in New Hampshire. If Haley stays in the race through Super Tuesday, Trump might lose what little is left of his mind.
