WATCH: Nikki Haley Hints At 2024 Run Against Trump As Speculation Grows – ‘I Can Be That Leader’

Jan 20, 2023 | Political News

Former South Carolina governor and Trump United Nations (UN) Ambassador Nikki Haley hinted at a 2024 presidential run during a Thursday interview on Fox News's “Special Report” with Brett Baier.

When asked when she would make a decision to run for president or not, the former South Carolina governor was somewhat guarded in her remarks but said, “Well, I’m not going to make an announcement here, but when you’re looking at a run for president, you look at two things. 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?”

Haley then pointed to successes she oversaw as both UN ambassador and governor of South Carolina. She contends these position her remarkably well for a run in the 2024 campaign season.

“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.” Haley added.


“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. But we are still working through things, and we’ll figure it out. I’ve never lost a race — I said that then, I still say that now, I’m not going to lose now. But stay tuned,” Haley remarked

When asked, “are we getting to the exploratory committee stage here?”, Haley promptly replied, “I think. Stay tuned.”

It appears we will have to wait and see when and if Haley officially announces a White House run. With former President Trump already a declared candidate, 2024 is looking to be as interesting of a primary season as ever. The fate of America is at stake, with the possibility of four more years of Biden and the radical Democrats destroying America. Perhaps more than ever, America needs decisive change.
