Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Fox News: Trump Is No Navalny

February 20, 2024

GREENVILLE, S.C. – Nikki Haley joined Fox News today to talk about her speech pledging to stay in the presidential race to fight for a better America. The political elite wants a choice between two 80-year-old men who use anger and chaos to spread division. Haley's response? "It's not normal." You can read Haley's speech here and watch it here.

Haley on uniting the country…

"Wouldn't it be nice if we lived in a country where we could actually have dinner with our family and not have a fight or if we could go to work and say what we thought and not worry about being demoted. Getting rid of this division and hate is hugely important.

"We can be tough on the issues. We can strongly disagree on issues, but we can't do it with two candidates who literally just hate on the other side and encourage their supporters to hate on the other side. It's not normal. None of this is normal, and it should never be normal in America. And we have the chance to change that."

What would President Haley do to Russia?

"Well, the first thing is you solidify your alliance with NATO and let Putin know that. The second is we should be seizing Russian assets and giving that money to Ukraine so that they can further fight the war and do better with that. And then you go and you add more countries to your alliance. Yes, we ask them to pull their own weight and do that, but the best thing we can do is continue to support Ukraine with the equipment and ammunition they need to win, because that's the best thing that puts Putin on his heels. So that's not what you want to do when you go and you have Trump saying go ahead and invade them.

It's been a 75-year success story that we've had with NATO. Putin's been intimidated by that alliance. China's been intimidated by that alliance. And Trump just put us all in danger by going and exposing that."

Haley on Trump comparing himself to Navalny…

"It's amazing that here's a hero who challenged Putin, lost his life because of it. This is on the heels of Trump saying that he would encourage Putin to invade any NATO countries that didn't pull their weight. And now the only comment he's going to make about Navalny is not hitting Putin for murdering him, not praising Navalny for fighting the corruption that was happening in Russia, but instead he's going to compare himself to Navalny and the victim that he is in his court cases. That is my point. He is so distracted. He is so focused on himself. And America can't go through this. We won't survive it."
