Nikki Haley tweeted about Hamas’ terror tunnels and how she’d warned the world about their threat to Israel.
She also criticised the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, calling it ‘corrupt.’ Haley touted how America had stopped funding the agency whilst she was at the UN and how wrong it is that Biden started funding it again.
Haley criticised Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping and Nicolás Maduro as dictators, as well as Biden’s apparent relationship with them.
She wrote an op-ed in the New York Post about America’s enemies, which you can read about here.
Haley stated that Congress should not be paid whilst there is no Speaker. The situation with this started after the incumbent Speaker of the House, Kevin McCarthy, was removed after nine months in the position. Voting for a new Speaker has proved rather tricky.
All systems were fired against rival candidate Ron DeSantis today. A SuperPAC, Never Back Down, which is associated with Governor DeSantis, claimed that Haley supported bringing Gaza refugees into America. Haley and her team fact-checked this as false. She also strongly criticised DeSantis and his campaign about a litany of things, from new campaign managers to a mass firing.
The new nickname? Desperate DeSantis.
Haley was supported in this by Newsmax’s Chris Stirewalt:
“The dog that did not bark. The music between the notes was Nikki Haley. So DeSantis, when he launched his campaign, had a series of errors on foreign policy. When he was sucking up to Elon Musk and going around and experimenting with a sort of isolationist approach on foreign policy, thinking that he was going to go after Donald Trump voters, his core supporters, traditional conservatives, were outraged, right? Remember when he referred to the war in Ukraine as a regional conflict? And people said, ‘what did you say? So right now, he doesn’t have a Donald Trump problem, he’s got a Nikki Haley problem. Nikki Haley’s gaining momentum, he’s going down to South Carolina to take questions from you, because Nikki Haley, and foreign policy, all the foreign policy news helps Nikki Haley. He’s gotta find a way to deal with her, and I heard a candidate trying to find a way to deal with an opponent who has a strength where he has a weakness.”
Haley received an endorsement from conservative activist Star Parker.
Haley received an endorsement from retired General and former Senate candidate Don Buldoc.
At the time of writing, Republicans have removed Jim Jordan as their nominee.
Nikki Haley was in Iowa today. Her first event was a town hall with Senator and ally Joni Ernst in Cedar Rapids and the second was a tailgate with Representative Mariannette Miller-Meeks in Iowa City.
Polling has Haley on third at 7.2%, having overtaken Vivek Ramaswamy.
Haley reminded voters of the fact that she has long been pushing for the eradication of Hamas.
The Post and Courier, main paper of Charleston, South Carolina, endorsed Haley over state mate Tim Scott.
Israel was the main point of discussion for Nikki Haley again this week-unsurprising considering the crisis is ongoing. Foreign policy was also tied into this, with Haley discussing ‘America’s enemies.’ On the domestic front, Haley’s main target was Ron DeSantis and fact-checking his campaign. DeSantis tends to sit pretty at number two in the polls and if Trump was to drop out, he’d probably be top. Who is it best to go after?
