June 23, 2023

CHARLESTON, S.C. – This week Nikki Haley stumped in Moncks Corner, South Carolina, hit Joe Biden for his weak-kneed China policy, responded to Barack Obama's attacks, slammed the radical Squad, and demanded China apologize for a litany of sins.

Coming up... On Tuesday morning, Haley will deliver a major speech on China at the American Enterprise Institute in Washington before heading to New Hampshire.

  • Hollis, N.H.: A town hall on Tuesday, June 27.
  • Portsmouth, N.H.: A conversation with former Department of State spokesperson Morgan Ortagus and Polaris National Security on foreign policy.
  • Manchester, N.H.: New Hampshire GOP Summer Cookout with Gov. Chris Sununu and special guest Nikki Haley.

Moncks Corner Town Hall

The Post and Courier's Caitlin Byrd: "Standing ovation for Haley as she takes the stage. 'Well you know I gotta say it: It's a great day in South Carolina,' Haley says. She's now launching into her bio, which she tees up by saying, 'I want to remind you of some of the things that we did together.' #scpol #chsnews" (Twitter, 6/19/23) WCSC News: "Hundreds of employees and Haley supporters gathered inside Berkeley Electric Cooperative facility to hear about her position on specific issues throughout America, and how she feels about proposed energy regulations."

Haley Hits Democrats

First, it was Biden...

Haley: "Let's be clear, for the past several years China has been at war with us. We know it because they are building up their military, they've got the largest naval fleet in the world...China is making it very clear they are at war with America and the Biden Administration is making it clear they have no clue that's what they're trying to do."

Then, it was Barack Obama...

In a Daily Mail op-ed Haley said, "You'd think the first black President of the United States would have hope and pride in America. Not just that: You'd think he'd say that my candidacy for president – as the first female minority governor in American history – is further proof of our national progress. But Barack Obama didn't say that. Instead, he criticized me for saying America isn't racist." (Daily Mail, 6/21/23)

Next up, AOC and the "Squad"...

"Presidential candidate Nikki Haley on Thursday blasted 'Squad' Democrats as hypocritical for boycotting Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address to Congress over human rights issues while supporting 'Palestinian terrorists and socialist dictators.'" (Washington Examiner, 6/22/23)

And finally, Haley gave China a piece of her mind:

Haley: "China wants Joe Biden to apologize, but Biden told the truth. Xi Jinping IS a dictator. China should apologize for: Covid, fentanyl, genocide. Hong Kong, threatening Taiwan, stealing our tech, buying U.S. farmland, setting up a spy base in Cuba, infiltrating our universities & more." (Twitter, 6/22/23)
