Nikki Haley

US President

Strong and Proud

“Look at everything that’s wrong in this country and tell me we don’t need new leadership,” she said Wednesday on “Hannity.” “We have to leave the status quo. We have to leave this chaos behind. And we’ve got to start talking about the future.” Haley vowed to be a Washington outsider who is able to resonate with the everyday voter paying higher grocery bills, being laid off from work and worrying about their children’s lost education due to the COVID pandemic. “I understand that you should not have Americans looking up at the sky and seeing a Chinese spy balloon looking back at them. This is insanity. And what we need are a lot of changes,” she said. The former UN ambassador called for a number of reforms, including congressional term limits and competency tests for any elected official over the age of 75. “We’ve got to stop the spending addiction that is happening that is causing inflation to go up, and we need to start realizing that we don’t need our politicians getting on TV and talking. We need the people in D.C. doing, and we need to spark a fire up under them. And that’s what I’m willing to do,” she told host Sean Hannity. Haley added that the Republican Party needs to expand its base to bring in the Hispanic, Jewish, Asian and African American communities and start speaking in a way that “lifts everybody up, not just a select few.” “DC is broken. It’s been broken for a long time. We have to have the courage to walk away from the status quo, walk away from all the past problems and say, we are not going to leave this country to our children. We’re going to make sure that we leave our country better for our children because they deserve it,” she continued. Haley joins former President Donald Trump as the second GOP contender for the Republican nomination. When asked what specific policies she holds that differ from Trump, Haley responded saying she doesn’t “kick sideways.” “I don’t kick sideways. I’m kicking for Joe Biden as the president. He’s the one I’m running against. And what I’m saying is you don’t have to be 80 years old to be president. We don’t need to have these same people going back again. We need something new. We need a new generation of fighters,” she stated. “We need people that understand what the American, your average American, is coming from. And we shouldn’t be afraid to fight for that. And that’s what I’m willing to do. I’m not going to kick sideways. I don’t have time for that. That’s not my focus. I’m kicking forward. It’s all about Joe Biden and it’s all about the people in America winning again.”

I could live with her as the GOP nominee. I find her rhetoric on China a bit escalatory but I realize she has to stand out and US-China relations and competition is a major issue. I do like her realistic stance on federal abortion legislation (that it's not gonna happen) and her experience as a governor. So as someone who isn't a Republican any more, I don't find her as off putting as Trump and Vivek.

Nikki Haley is a refreshing voice in the Republican Party. She strays from Trumpism often and seems to be a genuinely unique voice in the GOP.

Nikki Haley's strong focus on foreign policy and her accomplishments in representing the United States on the global stage resonate with me, especially in these times of current ongoing tensions. Her dedication to effective international relations is why I support her as a leader who can navigate these challenges. Additionally, with the long-standing Democratic and Republican spending problem that has persisted since the Clinton administration, I believe her experience and leadership could be instrumental in addressing this issue and working toward a balanced budget while promoting economic growth, as she has successfully done in the past during her tenure as governor.

I think Nikki Haley would rule with fairness, common sense and compassion as president. She will champion parents’ rights & women’s rights/spaces/sports. While she hasn’t been specific on abortion, I’m sure she would likely pass a reasonable abortion bill, probably like a 15 week restriction. Although she typically polls in 3rd or 4th place against the other GOP candidates, she’s polling at beating Biden at higher margins than anyone else. She seems like someone who would appeal to center right, independent voters.and female voters more. If Trump or DeSantis wins the nomination, she would make the perfect VP.
