Haley Will Pardon Trump, Sees No Point In “80-year-Old Man Sitting In Jail”
India-West News Desk
WASHINGTON, DC – In a recent New Hampshire campaign event covered by NBC News, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley declared that, if elected president, she would pardon former President Trump in the event of a conviction, citing the pardon as being “in the best interest of the country.”
The statement comes as Trump faces a daunting legal battle, with 87 felony charges pending across Florida, New York, and Georgia. The charges revolve around allegations of attempting to overturn the 2020 election results, interfering in the election process, mishandling classified materials, and paying hush money to a porn star.
Haley’s stance aligns with other prominent Republicans, including Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, who have also signaled their support for a potential pardon for Trump.
Responding to a question posed by a 9-year-old boy during the New Hampshire event, Haley emphasized the importance of considering the nation’s best interests, stating, “If he is found guilty, a leader needs to think about what’s in the best interest of the country.” She continued, “What’s in the best interest of the country is not to have an 80-year-old man sitting in jail that continues to divide our country.”
Haley concluded by asserting that pardoning Trump would allow the nation to move forward, stating, “What’s in the best interest of the country would be to pardon him so that we can move on as a country and no longer talk about him.”
