Twitter users are having a field day with a now-deleted tweet from former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley where the politician incorrectly added numbers together.
This past weekend, Haley, 50, tweeted criticizing President Joe Biden for inflation and attached a graphic showing Americans how much it cost to celebrate Fourth of July weekend.
“Remember last summer when Biden bragged about a $0.16 savings on your July 4th cookout? Well, this is what you’re spending on this 4th of July… #Bidenflation”, Haley’s deleted tweet read.
The attached graphic adding 15.6% + 13.2% + 11.9% + 9.6% + 8.7% + 8.2% to get 67.2%.
However many people noted that Haley’s numbers did not add up.

Seemingly, Haley added together the percentages rather than taking the percentage of each new number and adding those up.
