Haley pushes back after Trump says she'll drop out after NH primary: 'I don't do what he tells me'

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she does not take orders from former President Trump.

"I don't do what he tells me to do," Haley, a former two-term South Carolina governor who later served as U.N. ambassador in the Trump administration, told Fox News and other news organizations as she took questions from reporters outside a polling station in a coastal New Hampshire town on Tuesday morning.

Trump entered Tuesday's GOP presidential primary in New Hampshire holding a formidable double-digit lead over Haley in the final public opinion polls, and the former president was aiming for another convincing victory after crushing Haley and Florida Gov. DeSantis a week ago in Iowa's low-turnout presidential caucuses. 

DeSantis, who was a distant third in the surveys in New Hampshire, dropped out of the race on Sunday and endorsed Trump.

At a rally on primary eve in Laconia, the former president noted that "we started off with 13 [GOP White House candidates] and now we're down to two people."

"And I think one person will be gone probably tomorrow," he predicted, as he pointed toward Haley.
