Nikki Haley Quits US Presidential Race


March 06, (THEWILL)- Republican presidential adpirant and former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Nikki Haley, has quit the 2024 presidential race.

In a press conference on Wednesday, the Indian-American politician, expressed “gratitude for the outpouring of support” she has received from all across the United States, but added that “time has now come to suspend my campaign.”

Haley, a former South Carolina Governor, said, “In all likelihood, Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee when our party convention meets in July. “I congratulate him and wish him well.


“I have always been a conservative Republican and always supported the Republican nominee. But on this question, as she did on so many others, Margaret Thatcher provided some good advice when she said ‘Never just follow the crowd. Always make up your own mind.’ It is now up to Donald Trump to earn the votes of those in our party and beyond it who did not support him. And I hope he does that.”

Haley further said that she would not resist “using my voice for the things I believe. Our world is on fire because of America’s retreat. Standing by our allies in Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan is a moral imperative. But it’s also more than that. If we retreat further, there will be more war, not less.”

The former UN ambassador lost to Trump, who won nearly every major primary. She lost to him in Iowa, New Hampshire, and even in her own state of South Carolina.

Meanwhile, the Republican National Committee (RNC), has congratulated Trump on being “the presumptive Republican nominee for President of the United States.”

In a statement, RNC chair, Ronna McDaniel, hailed Trump for “huge” Super Tuesday triumph and praised Haley for running a “hard-fought” campaign and becoming “the first woman to win a Republican presidential primary contest.”
