Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley Releases Second Ad, "American Strength"

December 08, 2023

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Nikki Haley for President campaign launched its second ad on broadcast and cable TV and across digital platforms.

Read more about the ad in CBS News.

The new ad, "American Strength," features Nikki Haley talking about her husband's first deployment to Afghanistan and the difficulty he had transitioning to regular life when he returned. Michael Haley is currently on his second deployment with the U.S. Army in Africa. As a military spouse, Haley offers a unique perspective on why American strength matters—because a strong America doesn't start wars; it prevents them.

"Joe Biden's weakness shows us what happens when America retreats and cozies up to the dictators in Iran and China," Haley spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas said. "Today, the world is on fire and Americans are less safe. Nikki Haley will stand up for America and stand up to our enemies just like she did at the United Nations. She will prevent war and make America more secure."


HALEY: When Michael returned from Afghanistan, loud noises startled him.

He couldn't be in crowds. The transition was hard.

Some people ask, why sacrifice? Why serve? Why fight?

I know why. Because if Russia wins, China wins.

If Hamas wins, Iran wins.

And if evil succeeds it puts all of us at risk.

American strength doesn't start wars. It prevents them.

That's what I'll do as president.

I'm Nikki Haley and I approve this message.
