Once it’s all said and done, did Nikki Haley really get the correct conclusion? 

May 23 – Nikki Haley spoke for the first time yesterday since dropping out of the presidential race for 2024. She was a Republican contender for the nomination against Donald Trump. 

She spoke at the Hudson Institute think-tank in Washington DC yesterday, where she said, “Trump has not been perfect on these policies. I’ve made that clear many, many times. But Biden has been a catastrophe. So I will be voting for Trump.”

Pat Ryan of NewsTalk 103.7FM pointed out, “Pretty profound remarks. Again, I turned to the Independent voter here. Do not be fooled. Biden is not in charge of anything. His faculties, of course we know he’s not in charge of that. He’s not in charge of this country. But all the ownership is on him and his legacy forever smashed to the bits here. So any local Dem that you’re looking at, any state Dem, any national Dem, they’re all in panic mode right now. So whoever they put in and Joe Biden makes the nomination here or are they going to quietly figure out some way in their panic mode to find somebody else? Do not be fooled. Anybody they put in there, will continue on with the deep state and whatever Joe Biden has unleashed on all of us will continue no matter who they put in there.” 

Attorney Clint Barkdoll said, “A lot of reporting about this in today’s Washington, DC political newsletters. Now we should say, she did not endorse Trump, but she said she will vote for him. Politico is saying if you look at her full speech, they call it a stinging rebuke she made of many of Trump’s policies, particularly on foreign policy. But in the same speech, she says Biden is even a bigger catastrophe. So she might be in this camp of what you would call the double hater. But this announcement that she’ll vote for him I do think is important because remember, she is continuing to peel off 15 to 20% of the votes even in these closed Republican primaries, and she’s not even running where her name is on the ballot. Trump needs those votes. I do think she said that yesterday, there may be a number of her supporters that will get on board and they may have the same attitude. They don’t like either of these candidates. But when you get down to it, she’s saying she’s voting for Trump because his policies would still be better than another four years of Biden’s policies.”

Michele Jansen of NewsTalk 103.7FM said, “I think the perfect role for Nikki Haley right now and it’s very, very important that she said, we have to get the Democrats out of the White House. I think that’s her biggest message. She’s not acknowledging that there could be some salvaging of the country under Democrats it sounds like. She’s realizing the danger of these progressive leftist policies and we can’t emphasize that more. That would be the perfect role for her to go out and highlight the very authoritarian ideological policies of the left that are destroying the economy, are making our borders wide open, not allowing us to be a sovereign country anymore, and the danger we are in the world. If she would go around and highlight that and then highlight the contrast with how things were under Trump, forget the men just highlight the policies that would be a perfect role for her.”

Barkdoll said, “You also wonder this yesterday, so one of her new roles now she’s the head of this think tank, the Hudson Institute, they’re a conservative think tank in Washington. Is she positioning herself for a possible vice presidential or a cabinet position? Now the reporting this morning is she saying she’s had no contact whatsoever with Trump or his campaign, but we know over the last few weeks, there has been a lot of reporting that she was starting to show up on Trump’s shortlist again, of VP candidates. Trump made that Truth Social posting, saying no, he wouldn’t do it. But you do wonder if there might be more going on here than we realize and I think politically, Trump would be very smart to make some overture to her, not necessarily as the VP but she obviously was an important person in his administration previously as the UN ambassador. Might he come out and make some kind of an announcement that she would have a similar role again?”
