Nikki Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has intensified her criticism of former President Trump in a recent interview with Iowa Public Radio. During the interview, she expressed concerns about the prospect of another Trump term, asserting that the country “won’t survive” it.
Haley, known for her diplomatic role during the Trump administration, highlighted differences between her foreign policy stance and Trump’s approach. She specifically mentioned her disagreement with Trump’s praise for certain dictators, citing instances where she believes such admiration was inappropriate. According to Haley, praising entities like Hezbollah and congratulating the Chinese Communist Party on its 70th anniversary were actions she found objectionable..
The former ambassador emphasized the need for a leader who adopts a forward-thinking approach and is focused on the future. She criticized Trump for being too focused on addressing past grievances, stating that the country cannot survive with a leader who is unable to look forward due to preoccupation with historical issues.
Haley has been increasing her public appearances in Iowa as she gears up for the caucuses. During town halls, she has been discussing the distinctions in foreign policy perspectives between herself and Trump, positioning herself as a candidate with a vision for preventing conflicts and fostering international stability..
The reported tensions and disagreements between Haley and Trump highlight the complexities within the Republican Party as different figures navigate their political paths. The evolving dynamics will likely play a role in shaping the party’s future direction and electoral strategies.
Haley has upped her appearances in the state ahead of the caucuses. During her recent town halls, she’s begun to speak on the differences between her foreign policy and Trump’s.
“I DON’T AGREE WITH TRUMP PRAISING THESE DICTATORS,” SHE SAID. “YOU DON’T GO AND SAY, ‘HEZBOLLAH’S SMART,’ YOU DON’T CONGRATULATE THE CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY ON THEIR 70TH ANNIVERSARY. YOU DON’T PRAISE PRESIDENT XI A DOZEN TIMES AFTER HE GAVE THE WORLD COVID. YOU JUST DON’T DO THAT. INSTEAD, YOU LET COUNTRIES KNOW WHAT WE EXPECT OF THEM. AND NOW MORE THAN EVER, WE NEED TO COME AT THEM STRONG. THIS IS ABOUT PREVENTING WAR.”
HALEY SAYS AMERICA “WON’T SURVIVE” ANOTHER TERM WITH TRUMP IN OFFICE, AND NEEDS SOMEONE MORE FORWARD-THINKING.
“YOU CAN’T HAVE SOMEONE WHO’S SO FOCUSED ON THE PAST THAT THEY CAN’T SEE THE FUTURE,” SHE SAID. “AND THAT’S WHY I THINK DONALD TRUMP SHOULDN’T BE PRESIDENT — IS NOT ONLY DOES CHAOS FOLLOW HIM, BUT HE’S NOT IN THE RIGHT STATE OF MIND TO REALLY LOOK FORWARD. HE’S TOO BUSY WANTING TO FIX THE GRIEVANCES OF THE PAST. WE CAN’T HAVE THAT, WE WON’T SURVIVE IT.
