To use political jargon, Nikki Haley—who has lost primary contests in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and her home state of South Carolina—does not have a snow ball’s chance in hell of winning the GOP nomination for president. Still, she is apparently intent on not going down without a fight, and to that end, the former governor has a message for voters: Anyone who votes for Donald Trump has a death wish for America.

Speaking to The Wall Street Journal, Haley said that while her opponent may be running for reelection “to pay his legal fees and get out of some sort of legal peril,” the idea of making him the party’s nominee “is like suicide for our country.” Seemingly making a Titanic reference, in which America is the boat and Trump is the iceberg, she also told the outlet: “You have to see the hole in the ship. And if you don’t see the hole in the ship, we’re all going to go down.”

Asked point-blank why she is still running, Haley told the Journal, “I’m doing what I think is right. I’m doing what I believe 70% of Americans want me to do.” (Seven in 10 Americans have said they want an alternative to a rematch of the 2020 election, the Journal noted.) On the campaign, she has repeatedly noted that despite easily beating his Republican opponents, Trump has failed to win approximately 40% of the vote in some early states, which seems to indicate he’ll have a tough time beating Joe Biden in the fall. Speaking of, the former South Carolina governor told the Journal (despite Trump’s status as an accused criminal* and certified sexual abuser), “I have serious concerns about Donald Trump. I have more serious concerns about Joe Biden.”

In Michigan, where the fifth Republican primary is being held Tuesday, Trump leads Haley by nearly 57 points, according to FiveThirtyEight.

*Here’s where we have to tell you he’s pleaded not guilty to all 91 felony counts.
