Nikki Haley, previous U.S. Ambassador to the U.N., expressed strong concerns about the possibility of Vice President Kamala Harris taking on the role of president if Democrats secure a victory in 2024. During a conversation with Fox News’ Maria Bartiromo, she stressed that such a scenario should deeply concern every American.
Haley, who once served as the governor of South Carolina, also raised questions about the viability of Donald Trump’s candidacy. While she acknowledged her respect for Trump and the policies they worked on together, she pointed out his impending legal battles. “He’s looking at multiple legal challenges, which might keep him away from campaigning,” she remarked. “The idea of Kamala Harris as president worries me. We need fresh leadership that appeals to various groups including independents, suburban women, Hispanics, and Asians.”
Despite her previous service under Trump’s administration, Haley has expressed reservations about his re-election. Post-debate, in a discussion with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, she opined that Trump’s legal troubles are a product of a biased justice system. “To truly reform Washington, we need someone who isn’t burdened by past issues. A young conservative leader can address the injustices done to Trump and propel our nation forward,” Haley asserted.
A recent poll from Fox News revealed that 53% of probable voters lean towards Trump, granting him a significant 37-point advantage over Florida’s Governor, Ron DeSantis. Even though Haley ranked fifth, she remains optimistic about the race. “It’s in its early stages,” she commented to Bartiromo. “We’ve held numerous events in New Hampshire, Iowa, and South Carolina, and we’re determined to engage with as many people as possible.”
After a recent debate, Haley’s position on abortion gained attention when she advocated for a middle ground. She emphasized the need for Republicans to approach the topic empathetically. “This issue matters. My pro-life stance isn’t about party lines; it’s personal. My husband is adopted, and my journey to motherhood had its challenges,” she shared.
Addressing the complexities of federal laws, Haley clarified that no president, regardless of party, can unilaterally alter abortion regulations. “Achieving our goals requires consensus. If we genuinely aim to protect lives and support mothers, we need to find common ground,” she concluded.
