Nikki Haley will not be a presidential candidate for 2024 if former President Trump decides to run, the former South Carolina governor and ambassador said on Monday. During an interview with The Associated Press, she said that at some point they will have to make the decision.
“I would not run if President Trump runs, and I would talk to him about it. That’s something we’ll have a conversation about at some point,” Haley said.
The former U.S. ambassador also indicated that she would support the former president if he decides to run in the 2024 presidential elections. The meeting with the media came after touring the campus of South Carolina State University, an HBCU in Orangeburg where current President James E. Clark showed off-campus improvements, including a renovated student center and state-of-the-art cybersecurity and cancer research facilities, according to the AP.
Nikki Haley is not the only one
However, Nikki Haley is not the only Republican who has been speculated to be a possible 2024 candidate. Last week, former Vice President Mike Pence signed a contract for two books that would talk about his life and politics. And, according to Axios, the deal was reportedly part of a strategy to promote his profile ahead of a possible presidential run.
Pence also announced on Twitter the creation of a new political platform to promote conservative values. He assured that it is necessary to promote ideas that defend freedom and defeat the radical left.
“Excited to launch American Freedom, an advocacy organization that will defend and build upon the successful policies of the Trump-Pence administration. AAF will help defeat the Radical Left Agenda and Advance American Freedom for generations to come,” he wrote on Twitter.
