Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley Rips the Squad for "Terrorist Talk"

October 20, 2023

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — In an interview with Fox News this afternoon, Nikki Haley denounced the radical members of the Squad for engaging in "terrorist talk," and called on Joe Biden to denounce them instead of going to the beach.

On the Squad's "terrorist talk"...

"It's shameful. It's flat out shameful. The Squad acts like the terrorists. And what I'm waiting on is where is Joe Biden? Why hasn't Joe Biden called out these terrorists? Why hasn't Joe Biden called out the Squad? I mean, here they are. And they are basically mimicking pro-Hamas comments, mimicking basically what they're saying, trying to justify the deaths, the murders, the rapes of what happened. They refused to acknowledge the bloodshed and the torture and the terrorists that had caused all of this. And so, look, I don't know the people that elected them in, but I do know a president who's allowing them to say these things. And he needs to step up. He doesn't need to go to the beach. He needs to call out the Squad and tell them they've got to stop all this terrorist talk and start supporting America and Israel and the freedom-loving countries that want to see this go away."

Haley's warning to Joe Biden...

"I'll say two prayers have been answered and we've got 200 more to go. That's the first thing I'll say. The second thing I'll say to the Biden administration is, don't fall for it. I have dealt with Qatar in terms of trying to get hostages or actually hostage bodies out of Gaza. This is what they do. They're trying to earn favor with the United States...

"This also shows that Iran is trying to find ways to intimidate by having Hezbollah shoot rockets, by having things happen from Yemen towards Israel, and by having Hamas continue to do what they do. This is a time to be smart. Go in smart. Don't let this weaken us. Don't fall for it. We've got 200 more hostages in there, and don't forget what happened on October 7. They want everybody to forget. We can never forget. Israel needs to stay focused, determined and America needs to have their back."
