Nikki Haley Officially Announces She Is Running For President Against Donald Trump

Published on

Since former President Donald Trump launched his bid for the White House in November, speculation has been rife as to whether other Republicans may enter the race. Numerous possibilities, including Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, and Tim Scott, have been discussed in relation to Trump’s running partner.

Now that one of those listed has entered the race, the competition has begun. Tuesday morning, Nikki Haley formally confirmed through video that she will seek the Republican nomination for president in 2024. Haley is the former governor of South Carolina and served as the United States’ ambassador to the United Nations under President Trump.

Haley was the first Indian-American cabinet member, spending nearly two years as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. “Get excited! Time for a new generation,’ Haley says in her first campaign video posted to Twitter. I’m Nikki Haley, and I’m running for president.”

Haley will conduct her first formal campaign event in Charleston on Wednesday, and she will start the contest as the underdog, with Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis dominating Republican surveys. Daily Mail claimed that by launching her campaign so early, Haley would have an opportunity to get early support in early primary contest areas like as Iowa, New Hampshire, and her home state of South Carolina. South Carolina Senator Tim Scott, the only black Republican in the upper house, is contemplating a run for governor. Haley might even face opposition from within her home state.

Haley is married to William Michael Haley, a commissioned officer in the South Carolina Army National Guard. Haley is the daughter of Indian immigrants. The couple has a daughter, Rena, who will shortly be wed, and a son, Nalin. Haley was raised in the tiny Lowcountry town of Bamberg, South Carolina, and later became the state’s first female and Asian-American governor.

The former South Carolina governor, 51, discusses growing up in a racially-segregated town in the video and says: “I was the proud daughter of Indian immigrants — not black, not white. I was different.” Haley would be the first American of Asian descent on the GOP ticket for the Presidency.

She rejected the notion that the United States is fundamentally “wrong” or “racist” due to its past. “Some look at our past as evidence that America’s founding principles are bad,” Haley noted. “They say the promise of freedom is just made up. Some think our ideas are not just wrong, but racist and evil. Nothing could be further from the truth. Even on our worst day, we are blessed to live in America,” she added.

Former President Trump recently held a kick-off rally in South Carolina, and though Haley did not attend his event, the two spoke just prior. Haley then told Trump she was considering a run for the GOP presidential nomination. Trump reportedly replied, “I think you should do it.”

Polls still have Trump in the lead over other Republicans. Trump has posted that Biden and RINOs are trying to “damage” him through legal battles so he doesn’t win a second term in the White House, but wanted it would not work, Daily Mail noted. CONTINUE READING…
