Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley left the door open to running for the White House in 2024 after vowing to stump across the country to help re-elect President Trump next year.
“A year is a lifetime in politics,” Haley said. “It would be a waste of time to think about 2024 at this point.”
But Haley then added, “Instead I want to do everything I do really well now and just see if doors open.”
Haley, who also served as the Republican governor of South Carolina, made it clear that she has Trump’s back in 2020.
Asked if she would stump across the country for Trump’s re-election, she said, “I will. Yes.”
In an earlier interview on the “Today Show”, Haley defended her former boss’s handling of his July 25 phone call with Ukranian President Volodymr Zelensky.
The call sparked a House impeachment inquiry about whether Trump withheld almost $400 million in aid to the country in exchange for a probe into former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter.
Haley said she didn’t think the episode amounted to an impeachable offense because the “aid flowed.”
During the 92nd Street Y interview, Haley emphasized that when she was UN ambassador the Trump administration had Ukraine’s back to counter bullying from neighboring Russia.
“We gave them [Ukraine] anti-tank missiles. We gave them military training,” she said.
Haley said she had a very good relationship with the Ukranian ambassador.
Haley’s book claims former top advisers and cabinet officials tried to recruit her to undermine Trump.
Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson denied Haley’s accusation.
