South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley slammed Donald Trump arguing he is “everything we hear and teach our kids not to do in kindergarten.”

In an interview Sunday with George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s “This Week,” Haley, who has endorsed Sen. [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore], said, “there are two presidential candidates right now undergoing legal issues: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump…we need to make sure we get that.”

“Trump is everything we hear and teach our kids not to do in kindergarten. And we have seen this behavior over and over again that’s unacceptable. And I think what we saw from Marco is exactly what we tell our children also, if a bully hits you, you hit back.” (RELATED: Rubio Calls Out Trump For Repeating Himself During The Debate [VIDEO])

“I think [Rubio] hit back and he showed that’s he’s willing to lead. He’s willing to fight. And he’s going to have the passion to do it,” Haley claimed. (RELATED: Trump Dumps Out Bottle Of Water And Yells ‘Rubio’ [VIDEO])

Stephanopoulos replied, “Some would say he’s stooping to the same level.”

“I don’t know if you stoop to the same level. What you don’t do is you walk away from it. I mean, again, when a bully comes after you, you go back,” Haley said. “I think he punched. I think he punched hard. I think it was on policy. I think he made sure that everybody understood that there are a lot of questions that Donald Trump hasn’t answered. It is amazing. I’m going to count it. You could be undergoing an audit. There’s no reason he can’t release last year’s tax returns. Why is he not doing that?” (RELATED: Trump Says He Can’t Release Taxes Because He’s Being Audited [VIDEO])

“And you look at all these issues, this is one more project that Donald Trump is doing. Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Airlines, Trump Mortgage all failed projects. This is one more project. And we’re really concerned about where that’s going to be,” Haley argued.

Stephanopoulos followed up by asking, “What will a win for Donald Trump in the nomination fight mean” for the Republican Party, and Haley said, “Well, it’s scary. I mean, this is where we think these next few states matter, because it will start to ask him the questions and get the answers.”

“There are two presidential candidates right now undergoing legal issues: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump,” Haley said. “There’s two presidential candidates that are disclosing information: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. And we need to make sure we get that. What we know right now is, we’ve got a candidate that’s being accused of fraud with Trump University. We’ve got students that have a lawsuit against him.” (RELATED: Trump: Judge In Trump University Lawsuit ‘Very Hostile,’ And ‘Hispanic, Which Is Fine’ [VIDEO])

“We’re seeing a lot of things from Donald Trump with no answers. I’ve seen him talk about being for universal health care. I’ve seen him talk about wanting to do things and he’s not giving us the answers for it,” Haley insisted. “So, I think what he’ll do the Republican Party is really make us question who we are and what we’re about. And that’s something we don’t want to see happen.”
