The former US ambassador to the UN and candidate for the Republican nomination for the presidential election in November, Nikki Haley, predicted this Tuesday that there will be a woman president of the United States: “It will be me or it will be Kamala Harris,” he said in the program The Hugh Hewitt Show.
“It’s me or it’s Kamala Harris and I don’t want a Kamala Harris as president. The first thing we have to understand is that (Donald) Trump is not going to be able to beat (Joe) Biden in an election. This is a truth,” emphasized the candidate.
Haley ignored the fact that former President Trump was the favorite in every poll and relied on his direct rival’s low support among independents.
In the New Hampshire primaries held on January 23, although Trump won, 44% of voters were independent and among the group Haley won with 58%, compared to the former president’s 39%.
And in the Iowa caucuses on Jan. 15, which kicks off the primary process, Trump’s support was also lower in high-income neighborhoods.
“Look at Iowa. Look at New Hampshire. He can’t win among independents. Nobody can win a general election if he doesn’t have independents. He can’t win among suburban women,” Haley emphasized.
The candidate also said that Trump has “lost some Republicans who don’t like his style” and that “75% of Americans say they don’t want a rematch between Biden and Trump.”
At the end of the New Hampshire primary, Haley has already warned that if Trump is nominated by the party it will mean a victory for Biden in November and “a Kamala presidency.” The current resident of the White House is 81 years old and his predecessor is 77 years old.
Trump and Haley will test their respective strengths again on February 24 in the primaries in South Carolina, the former ambassador’s home state. Before that, the Nevada caucuses will take place on February 8, but since Haley did not show up, the 26 delegates from the state will go to Trump.
