COLUMBIA, S.C. (WCSC/AP) - Former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has called President Donald Trump “badly wrong” in his comments that stoked his supporters to mount a violent assault on the Capitol this week.

Haley said Thursday at the Republican National Committee meeting that Trump’s recent actions will also “be judged harshly by history.”

Haley served nearly two years as Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations. She served as governor of South Carolina from 2011 to 2017.

She also called on Republicans to “stop turning the American people against each other.”
