New Hampshire governor accuses Trump of having 'no energy'

 January 24, 2024

Former President Donald Trump trounced former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley on Tuesday night with an 11-point margin of victory in the New Hampshire primary election.

Those results came despite New Hampshire Republican Gov. Chris Sununu having diagnosed Trump as suffering from "no energy."

Governor boasts that Haley has "wiped 12 candidates off"

According to Breitbart, Sununu's comment came during a Monday appearance on CNN's "The Lead" that saw the governor talking up Haley's chances.

"Anyone who says this is a must-win for Nikki Haley, I heard someone mentioning that saying they overpaid for that political science degree," Sununu said of the former United Nations ambassador.

"Only three goals here. One was to get second place. Two was to make sure we have only two candidates in the race. She’s wiped 12 candidates off," he continued.

"And then three she wants to build on that out of Iowa. She had 20%. She will more than double or exceed that here. The last point is they’re polls," the governor stressed.

Sununu: "Trump has no energy"

"Last time I checked they’re always wrong. You never know. The same poll on the day I got elected said I would lose by 11 and we won by a couple percent," he recalled.

"So you know, it's all about the voter turnout," Sununu insisted, adding, "It’s all about the enthusiasm, where’s the energy. Not just what people say on a phone or how they, you know, respond to an online text or something."

"It’s really about the energy of that campaign. Trump has no energy — the guy can barely read a teleprompter right now. All the wind is behind Nikki's sails. So I just think the sky's the limit," he concluded.

Interestingly, Trump's alleged lack of energy wasn't anywhere to be seen in Trump's victory speech, during which he took aim at Haley's post-election remarks.

Poll finds just 25% of Americans think Biden has stamina for another term

"I said, wow, she's doing a speech like she won. She didn't win. She lost," the former president said in Nashua, New Hampshire.

"Let's not have somebody take a victory when she had a very bad night. She had a very bad night," Trump went on to add.

One person who has regularly had his energy levels called into question is President Joe Biden, with a November CNN poll finding that only 25% of Americans think he has enough "stamina" for another term.
