Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Kilmeade Radio: "We will be in a world of hurt if Kamala Harris becomes president."

September 11, 2023

CHARLESTON, S.C. – This morning, presidential candidate Nikki Haley joined Brian Kilmeade on Fox News radio to discuss a range of issues, including 9/11, Joe Biden caving to China, and Kamala Harris' disastrous job as border czar.

Listen here.

On Biden skipping 9/11 ceremonies...

"It was such a reminder that true evil really does exist in this world and we're never immune from it. And it also reminded us of the greatness of the American spirit and our resilience. That's why Biden and Kamala need to be out there, out front. That's why they need to be reminding every high schooler and every college student to watch 30-minutes of what that day was like and understand that we can never be so flippant and we can never be so absent as to think that that can't happen again.

"No, I think the American spirit always needs to take priority, period. I mean, I think you're looking at, you're in Vietnam, that's not a democracy. You need to be in America. That is a democracy. You need to acknowledge something that happened that was horrific. Not just as a reminder to Americans, but as a tribute to those American families that lost loved ones. As a tribute to the heroes that went and risked their lives and lost their lives in the days following because of the after effects of it. That's why you're there. That's what an American president does, remind people about the spirit, the resilience, and what it means.

"I don't get a lot of what he and Kamala do, but what I especially don't get is there has never been a day where we need more of a reminder of who we are and what we need to believe in. Division is not where we need to be, unity and the American spirit is where we need to be."

Biden's weakness on China...

"You don't beg China for anything. You let China know what we expect of them. It's their choice to make. What we need to be doing is being strong... Let's start letting them know that we're on to them. Let's start letting them know that we're going to lead, not react to them. You know every time he reacts and every time he does things like this, China and Russia get closer and it just defies logic. I dealt with China and Russia every day for two years, every day. Russia would always create chaos. That's what they did every day. They create chaos and lie. China always tries to try to find ways to be more aggressive and they would literally condemn everyone that wasn't them. They acted like they were the best country in the world and they constantly were trying to make us feel bad. And the thing is, I always made sure that they knew we were strong, we were proud, and if they wanted to work with us, then they had to come to us. We were never going to go to them. And that's the difference between me and what Biden's doing right now."

Kamala's failure on the border...

"That's the person that was given the responsibility to fix the border, and that is her answer. We will be in a world of hurt if Kamala Harris becomes president. That's why I'm fighting so hard, Brian. That's why it matters.

"And I'll say this about the border because I think it's really important. I don't think Greg Abbott gets enough credit for what he has done because first of all when all of this was happening in Texas and I went 400 miles down that border, when I talked to the ranchers, when I talked to the sheriffs, when I talked to the border security there, they were so underwater but they were just taking it. They were taking it because they always had to take it. No one was helping them and Greg Abbott had the courage to say, you know what, I'm not doing this to my people anymore. He started sending them to these sanctuary cities around the country who were lecturing Republicans saying we were bad people because we didn't want to let illegal immigrants in and all of a sudden what happened? Are they bad people now? Are they bad people because they see it infiltrating their schools and their hospitals and taxpayers having to pay for it? No, none of us are bad for saying that we want law and order. None of us are bad for saying we need to make sure Americans are secure and that our national security is the top priority. Now all of these Democrat-run sanctuary cities are suddenly saying, 'oh wait a minute don't do this to us.' Well, you know what if you're a sanctuary city they're gonna keep coming. I think Greg Abbott needs to keep sending them because that's the only way they're gonna wake up."
