Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Hannity: "This Is Actually Dangerous"

February 09, 2024

"It's a disturbing day for America right now…I think we've got some work to do."

CHARLESTON, S.C. – In an appearance with Fox News' Sean Hannity last night, Nikki Haley highlighted the dangerous similarities between Donald Trump and Joe Biden: both mishandled classified documents, and neither is at the top of his game.

While Joe Biden is confusing the presidents of Mexico and Egypt, Donald Trump is mixing up Haley and Nancy Pelosi. Neither followed the national security protocols in place to keep America's secrets secure.

Watch here:

I think the first thing is you look at the fact that we need to take the politics out of all of our agencies. Whether this is Clinton, whether this is Biden, whether this is Trump, they all need to be handled fairly. And clearly that's not the case. We have to get rid of the double standard. And that continues to show itself.

The second thing is, it is unbelievably disturbing that they see Biden to not have a good memory, that they see him as diminished, that they see that it's a problem, and they point-blank say that. I mean, this is actually dangerous.

People make fun of the fact that I say we need to have mental competency tests. There's a reason 70% of Americans don't want to see a Biden-Trump rematch. The party that gets rid of their 80-year-old candidate is going to be the party that wins.

The third thing that bothers me about this is, whether it's Biden or whether it's Trump, they both knew better. You know when you work around national security documents… you know what's not supposed to leave the office. You don't go bragging about these national security documents. You don't leave them in a garage. Whatever it is, both these men knew better and the arrogance that they both had to think they could walk out with these documents and just not think that there were going to be any repercussions… So I mean look, it's a disturbing day for America right now. I think we've got some work to do.
