ormer U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley voiced her apprehensions about the potential of Kamala Harris becoming the president should the Democrats win in 2024. In a discussion on Fox News with Maria Bartiromo, Haley emphasized that such an outcome would be a cause for worry for many Americans.
Haley, previously the South Carolina governor, also deliberated on the feasibility of Donald Trump’s run for the presidency. Though respectful of Trump and their joint policy initiatives, she highlighted his looming legal issues. “He faces numerous legal obstacles, potentially hindering his campaign efforts,” she noted. “Having Kamala Harris as president is unsettling. What we need is new leadership that resonates with diverse audiences such as independents, suburban women, Hispanics, and Asians.”
While Haley was a part of Trump’s team earlier, she has shown some skepticism about his possible second term. After a debate, speaking with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, she felt Trump’s legal woes stem from an unjust justice system. “For genuine change in Washington, we need a leader free from historical controversies. A young conservative figure can address what’s been done to Trump and drive the country forward,” she stated.
A Fox News survey indicated that 53% of potential voters favor Trump, providing him a considerable 37-point lead over Florida’s Governor, Ron DeSantis. Even being ranked fifth, Haley remains hopeful about the election. “It’s still early,” she told Bartiromo. “We’ve been active in New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina, aiming to connect with a broad audience.”
Haley’s stance on abortion became a talking point after a debate. She called for a balanced approach, underscoring the need for the Republicans to handle it with understanding. “It’s a significant topic. My pro-life view isn’t just political; it’s personal due to my husband’s adoption story and my path to becoming a mother,” she explained.
Regarding the intricate nature of federal regulations, Haley pointed out that no single president, irrespective of their party, can independently change abortion laws. “To achieve our objectives, we must collaborate. We need to unite if our genuine goal is to safeguard lives and stand by mothers,” she wrapped up.
