Former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley Thursday said she is seriously considering running to become the 2024 Republican nominee for president.
Haley said, when interviewed last year by the Associated Press, she would not run if former President Trump did. Using the royal “we,” the former governor did not include that caveat in a discussion with Fox News reporter Bret Baier.
The Daily Wire further reported:
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told Fox News in an interview that aired Thursday night that she thinks she could be the next President of the United States and that she is seriously exploring the possibility.
The possible run by Haley comes despite her telling the Associated Press last year: “I would not run if President Trump ran.”
“When you’re looking at a run for president, you look at two things,” Haley told Fox News anchor Bret Baier. “You first look at, does the current situation push for new leadership? The second question is, am I that person that could be that new leader, that, yes, we need to go in a new direction? And can I be that leader? Yes, I think I can be that leader.”
“I was — as governor, I took on a hurting state with double-digit unemployment, and we made it the beast of the Southeast,” she said. “As ambassador, I took on the world when they tried to disrespect us. And I think I showed what I’m capable of at the United Nations.”
“So, do I think I could be that leader? Yes,” she added. “But we are still working through things, and we will figure it out. I have never lost a race. I said that then. I still say that now. I’m not going to lose now. But stay tuned.”
