Nikki Haley Says She Will Vote For Donald Trump

WASHINGTON, DC (ANI) – Former Republican Party presidential candidate Nikki Haley said on Wednesday she will vote for former US President Donald Trump over US President Joe Biden in November, The Hill reported.

In her remarks at the Hudson Institute, Haley stated she prioritizes a president who will hold enemies to account, secure the border, and back “capitalism and freedom.” She noted that while “Trump has not been perfect on these policies”, however, “Biden has been a catastrophe.”

“As a voter, I put my priorities on a president who’s going to have the backs of our allies and hold our enemies to account, who would secure the border, no more excuses.” Haley said, “A president who would support capitalism and freedom, a president who understands we need less debt, not more debt,” she said.

“Trump has not been perfect on these policies. I’ve made that clear, many, many times. But Biden has been a catastrophe. So, I will be voting for Trump,” Nikki Haley added, according to The Hill report.

Earlier, in March, Haley dropped out of the GOP presidential candidate contest. She had said, “The time has now come to suspend my campaign. I said I wanted Americans to have their voices heard. I have done that. I have no regrets.”

She said, “Having said, “I stand by what I said in my suspension speech. Trump would be smart to reach out to the millions of people who voted for me and continue to support me, and not assume that they’re just going to be with him”, adding, “And I genuinely hope he does that.”

Haley’s remarks at the institute come at a time when she continues to hold a significant presence in Republican presidential primary results, despite her exit from the race, as some in the GOP express their frustration with Donald Trump through protest votes.

The former South Carolina Governor received 20 per cent of the vote in Maryland’s GOP primary last week, and 18 per cent in Nebraska. A week before that, Haley secured nearly 22 per cent of the vote in Indiana’s Republican primary. Earlier this year, she got more than 100,000 votes in each of the two key battleground states of Arizona and Pennsylvania.

Trump dismissed the results, stressing that the supporters of Nikki Haley will back him in the general elections against Biden, according to The Hill report.

Earlier this month, the former US President said, “She got very few voters.” He further said, “And those voters are all coming to me, and you may have a lot of Democrats in there because they have a very tricky little system. But those voters are coming to me.”

Meanwhile, Biden’s campaign has also made a move for Haley’s supporters. Earlier, in March, Biden stated that Trump does not want Haley’s supporters while adding that there was a place for them in his campaign.

In March, Biden said, “Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters.” He said, “I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign”, The Hill reported.

The former South Carolina Governor joined the Hudson Institute as its Walter P Stern chair in April. The post will help her to have a notable profile before the 2028 GOP presidential primary, for which she has repeatedly floated.

  • According to abcnews.go.com of March 6, 2024, Haley, after exiting the Republican primaries, told Trump to earn the support of folks who voted for her. Trump asked for their support but also insulted her and her supporters. See below. Biden should take advantage of that and aggressively go after Haley’s supporters. The following excerpt of the referenced article provides details.

    “In exiting the race on Wednesday morning, Haley issued a broad call for Republicans to rediscover what the party has previously stood for. She also called on Trump himself to reach out to voters who are not yet convinced that he’s the right choice for their party or for the country.

    “It is now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and those beyond it to support him,” Haley said in brief remarks in her home state of South Carolina. “I hope he does that.”

    Pretty much at the same time she was speaking, Trump invited Haley supporters to join his campaign. But that was almost an afterthought in a social-media post that also declared that Haley “got TROUNCED last night, in record setting fashion” and alleged that she was secretly funded by “Radical Left Democrats.”

    Contrast that with the statement President Joe Biden released Wednesday morning, praising Haley for the “courage” to run for president and try to defeat Trump.

    “Donald Trump made it clear he doesn’t want Nikki Haley’s supporters. I want to be clear: There is a place for them in my campaign,” the president said in a campaign statement.“

  • Now she has plundered other people’s money /OPM, she has no job and she’s willing to take any job including office secretarial job given by Trump. Or even jobs that fits her “Birdbrain” . She is a desperate and a back stabber a female version of Shylock.

  • It is often said that “Politics makes strange bedfellows.” This is certainly true in the case of Nikki Haley. What a disappointment! It turned out that she is no different than several other politicians with loose mouth and a loose keyboard. In the end, there was no class, especially because Trump insulted her husband for serving the country in a military uniform, and her parents as immigrants from India. Go figure! In her case, this endorsement of Trump would be a classical “lose-lose” proposition.
