“Even though South Carolina votes on Saturday, I’m still going to run for president on Sunday,” he said, stressing that he was “not going anywhere.”

“I’m campaigning every day until the last person votes because I believe in a better America and a brighter future for our children. Nothing good in life comes easy. There are cuts and bruises and slurs. I’m happy to accept,” she said, comparing herself to the Biblical great David.

“Because the only way to blessing is to go through pain. The easiest path would be to drop out. I’ve never taken the easy path. I’m the underdog in every race. “I was always David fighting Goliath,” Haley declared, continuing the comparison.

“And like David, I’m not just fighting someone bigger than myself. I’m fighting for something bigger than myself,” she added, attacking Trump again.
