Nikki Haley Is Able To Work With Trump After Political Rivalry

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is able to work with former President Donald Trump after they were rivals for months in their separate bids to secure the Republican Party’s presidential nomination. The former GOP presidential nominee-hopeful made the revelation at a press conference while on a tour of southern Israel.

Asked about how she could work with Trump, Haley said that campaign fights cannot be taken personally. According to her, what is most important is working together for the good of the country.

“I’ve always been able to take the emotion and the personal part out of politics because that is the only way you can do the right thing. This is about America. It’s about a strong America, it’s about a strong Israel. It’s about having the backs of our friends.”

The former U.N. ambassador then said that President Joe Biden is not an option for the November election when compared to Trump’s policies.

“This is all about policy, and when you look at the policies of the two, I am very much on one side. It’s not even close. We sparred in a campaign. If I thought either one of them were great, I wouldn’t have run. I ran because I thought I could do a better job, but at the end of the day, it is what it is,” she stated.

Reflecting on her time as the United Nations Ambassador in the Trump administration, Haley continued, “The goal was to make sure we knew who our friends were and who our enemies were, and I think the reason that he and I worked well together during that time was because he let me do my job, which was to call out our enemies, but we never forgot our friends, which is why we stood with Israel.”

“All you have to do is look at the fact that he moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem and acknowledged the truth, he allowed me to defund UNRWA,” she said further.

Haley’s remarks come after she revealed last Wednesday that she would be voting for the Republican presumptive nominee.

Asked who is the best for national security between Trump and Biden, Haley responded, “As a voter, I put my priorities on a president who’s going to have the backs of our allies and hold our enemies to account, [and] who would secure the border. No more excuses. A president who would support capitalism and freedom. A president who understands we need less debt, not more debt. Trump has not been perfect on these policies. I’ve made that clear many, many times. But Biden has been a catastrophe.”

“So I will be voting for Trump. Having said that, I stand by what I said in my suspension speech. Trump would be smart to reach out to the millions of people who voted for me and continue to support me, and not assume that they’re just going to be with him. And I genuinely hope he does that,” she added.

Trump also had good words for Haley last week, referring to her as a “very capable person.”

During an interview with News 12 New York on Thursday, he said, “We had a nasty campaign. But she’s a very capable person, and I’m sure she’s going to be on our team in some form, absolutely.” He added that the two “have a lot of the same ideas, the same thoughts.”
