Former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley took a break from waiting for her delayed delivery to Popcorn Factory to tour the South Carolina State University campus yesterday and answer questions from reporters.
Haley, who is expected to run for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, was asked if she would support Donald Trump if he chooses to run again, to which she replied in the affirmative. Not only that, but she wouldn’t even consider running.

“I wouldn’t introduce myself if President Trump did show up and I would tell him about it,” Haley said. “This is something that we will discuss at some point, if that decision is to be made.”
Haley went on to say that she and Trump had a “great working relationship” and that she “appreciated” him and the foreign policy work they did together.
I asked @NikkiHaley if she would support Donald Trump if he runs again in 2024.
“Yes,” she told me.
“I wouldn’t introduce myself if President Trump did show up and I would tell him about it,” she added. “It’s something we’ll have a conversation about at some point.”

That’s quite a turnaround from the remarks she made in February when she told Politico she was “disgusted” by the ex-president, who she said had “fallen so far.”
“We have to recognize that he let us down,” Haley said. “He took a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that happen again.

Of course, those remarks were a complete turnaround from what she had said about Trump a few months earlier in her RNC 2020 speech, when she praised his outstanding leadership and called it “a godsend” to the America.
Sooooo who is it, Nikki?
Here’s what Twitter is saying about the idea of a “President Haley” …

It’s hilarious that the media is asking Nikki Haley, who has no chance of winning in 2024, if she will run against Donald Trump, who also has no chance of winning in 2024.
