Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Fox and Friends: Trump Refuses to Condemn Russia, Rants About Court Cases Instead

February 19, 2024

ROCK HILL, S.C. – On Fox and Friends this morning, Nikki Haley hammered Donald Trump for emboldening Vladimir Putin, staying silent on Navalny's murder, and spending his time ranting about his legal drama on social media.

She also called on Donald Trump to support a bipartisan congressional bill that would allow the United States to seize Russian assets and use that money to pay for Ukraine's reconstruction.

Haley on Trump's weakness on Russia…

"It's amazing to me how weak in the knees he is when it comes to Putin, because you look at the fact he has yet to say anything about Navalny's death, which Putin murdered him. It's what he does to his political opponents. He's yet to say anything about seizing Russian assets and allowing that money to go to Ukraine, why would you not want to have those assets seized? It's sitting in Congress, he should be calling for that. He doesn't talk about anything. All he does is go on late-night rants talking about his court cases."

Haley on Trump's distractions and legal soap opera…

"We're seeing all of these things happen and Trump's doing late-night rants about his court cases. He's going to be in court for the rest of the year. We can't be distracted. But more of that, that's why I continue to say if Donald Trump is the nominee, he can't win. He won't win a general election. And the focus we need to have is how do we protect Americans? How do we prevent war? How do we get the border secure? How do we get our economy back on track? Not his personal grievances."

Haley on what's at stake…

"Yes, there will be a female president of the United States. It will either be me or it will be Kamala Harris. But look at any of the general election polls. Trump doesn't beat Biden. But more than that, all he does is bring chaos. Look, I voted for him twice. I was proud to serve America in his administration, but this is the fact we can't have two 80-year-old candidates being our only choices. Seventy percent of Americans have said they don't want a Trump Biden rematch. Fifty-nine percent of Americans have said Trump's too old and Biden's too old to be president. Let's put in someone that can spend eight years. Discipline no drama. No vendettas. No chaos. and let's get some real things done for our children, our grandchildren, and future generations."
