Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations — and former governor of South Carolina — Nikki Haley attacked President Joe Biden in a speech on Monday, outlining his administration’s approach to Iran and hinting at her possible presidential run.
During the Christians United for Israel 2022 summit, Haley predicted that Biden’s attempt to revive the Iran Nuclear Deal would “all but guarantee,” the Iranian government would acquire a nuclear weapon.
She stated that “no deal is better than a bad deal. And if this president signs any sort of deal, I’ll make you a promise: the next president will shred it on her first day in office.”
Haley doubled down on her potential bid for the White House by adding that, “Just saying, sometimes it takes a woman.”
In several tweets sent during the conference, Haley attacked Biden’s foreign policy on a wide variety of fronts.
On Russia, she said, “Putin saw the strongest country in history leave Bagram in the middle of the night, w/o even telling our allies. That’s why Putin made his move. It’s the price we pay for American weakness. And now countless Ukrainians are paying for our mistake with their lives.”
She also circled back to the Nuclear Deal saying, “Joe Biden continues to fall all over himself to get back in the Iran nuclear deal. He’s putting America at risk – and Israel, too. That’s unacceptable. The United States is better than this!”
Haley pointed out the Biden administration is giving over $300 million to Palestinians who would “use America’s money to attack America’s ally,” adding that, “It’s a disgrace.”
With Haley signaling a run, on the plus side, she would bring ample foreign policy experience to the table as well as lessons learned while serving in an executive office while leading South Carolina.
She would, however, be up against some tough competition in Trump, who is likely to run again for the nomination, and other potential major candidates like Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis — both of whom seem to be waiting in the wings for a chance to lead the Republican Party.
