Nikki Haley announces 2024 White House account for


>>> A major announcement today from Nikki Haley. The 2024 Republican presidential field has its second candidate and its first woman. >> The socialist left sees an opportunity to rewrite history. China and Russia are on the March.

They all think we can be bullied. Kicked around. You should know this about me. I don't put up with bullies, and when you kick back, it hurts them more when you're wearing heels. I'm Nikki Haley, and I'm running.

For president. >> Tomorrow, the former south Carolina governor and ambassador to the united nations holds a kickoff rally in Charleston, then two other key early voting states, Iowa and New Hampshire, later this week. Joining now to share reporting.

And incites, Dana bash, Jeremy diamond, and tia Mitchell. So Donald Trump has his first declared opponent. He was the only, until today, the only declared candidate for president. The question is, we roll back the tape pre-trump, you can make.

The case for okay, here's Nikki Haley. She's interesting, a governor of South Carolina. In the post trump Republican party, what's the lane? >> I was actually in south Carolina pre-trump when then governor Nikki Haley endorsed.

Marco Rubio and she stood on the stage with Marco Rubio and Tim Scott and said this is what the new Republican party should look like. That was before she became Donald Trump's U.N. Ambassador and kind of went back and forth many times when it comes to.

Supporting or not supporting him. That was one of the things that was most fascinating about her video. By the way, we could spend an hour talking about it, dissecting it, because it was very intentional.

A lot of points she wanted to make. When you talk to people who are preparing to, thinking about running against Donald Trump, which is what it is right now, there seems to be a dividing line between those who are willing to say, an aggressive.

Full throated way, we have to move on beyond this man, Donald Trump. And those who are kind of dancing around it. I'm already hearing from some in the first camp saying okay, she talks about the heels, which is a great memorable line.

She talks about bullies, which is another memorable line. But neglects to talk about her former boss who could easily be put in that category. >> In fact, she kind of lumps him in. Not just Donald Trump, she says other Republican presidential.

Candidates have failed a critical test. >> Republicans have lost the popular vote in seven out of the last eight presidential elections. That has to change. It's time for a new generation of leadership.

To rediscover fiscal responsibility, secure our border, and strengthen our country, our pride, and our purpose. >> It seemed to me to be a, if you're for trump or Desantis for that matter, if you're for a trumpy candidate, think again.

Is that the point she's making, to shake the Republican primary voter, think again. >> I think she's saying that, but what is she giving them as a true kind of contrast to trump or Desantis? Because she's still talking about wokism and the radical.

Left and criticizing the 1619 project. These are all the same type of talking points you'll hear from a trump or a Desantis. So you know, to Dana's point, she's talking around the edges, not really saying the thing, and I don't know if that's going to.

Resonate if she truly wants to present herself as an alternative. >> It's great question, does she run as governor Nikki Haley or ambassador Nikki Haley. Just look at the bio card. It's impressive. She's 51 years old.

Joe Biden is 80 plus, Donald Trump would be 80 or 79. 51 years old. First generation American. Was U.N. Ambassador. First woman South Carolina governor. She led the removal of the confederate flag from the south.

Carolina state house, that after a horrific shooting at a black church. Governor Nikki Haley would be an interesting Republican. Trump ambassador Nikki Haley, where's the lane? >> If you look at the video it's clear she plans on running as.

Governor Nikki Haley, at least primarily. The entire video focuses on her time as governor, what she was able to do in the state from an economic perspective, how she handled the fallout of the devastating Charleston shooting. The only thing we see in the.

Video in terms of U.N. Ambassador is maybe a picture or video of her in that role at the united nations. But I think the bigger question in terms of how she actually approaches this is we have seen too many of these Republicans kind of criticize trump.

Obliquely but not actually want to do it directly. And she clearly seems to fall in that lane so far. When you look at her statements over just the last year, I mean, from January 6th insurrection, saying that trump let us down, we shouldn't have followed him,.

To then saying that she would not run if he ran, and that she would support him, to now running herself. It's not really clear where Nikki Haley actually stands and that's something she has to focus on. How does she define herself to.

These Republican primary voters. >> If you're watching at home saying why don't you care about what trump said about her or Pompeo said about her? This is her announcement day. We focus on who they are and what they want to do. But one of the key points she.

Made here is she talked about it. She talked about being the daughter of immigrants in a state like South Carolina. She says it's defined her life. >> The railroad tracks divided the town by race. I was the proud daughter of.

Indian immigrants. Not black, not white. I was different. But my mom would always say, your job is not to focus on the differences. But the similarities. >> Again, that part of her biography is compelling.

Will she choose or will she try to be all things to all slices of the Republican primary? Because if she's a general election candidate, her team and her team argues we'll get back suburban women who can't vote for trump, we'll get back dependents looking for fiscal.

Conservatives, maybe are pro life but don't want someone hitting them in the head with it. Where is her lane? >> It's not where she's going right now, which I guess in a lot of ways is understandable because that's not the.

Electorate she's appealing to, it's Republicans. The part right after what you played in the video, she talks about the need to not talk about the differences so much and talk about similarities when it comes to race and other parts of America.

She has an image of AOC looking angry, and she has another image of an African American woman. I thought that was absolutely fascinating because she is a woman of color. And she's trying to show that she's with the Republicans when it comes to the culture wars and.

Everything that Ron Desantis and you name it have been talking about when it comes to trying to exploit the differences on ethnicity and race as opposed to bringing them together. >> Here's the question I can't answer. If you go back to earlier in our.

Days, pre-trump days, she's a candidate very good in small group settings like this. Meaning she could have great appeal in Iowa. Then her state, South Carolina, is third in the process. You can see it in the old map and calendar.

Does that world still exist? >> I don't know if that world still exists, especially the way she's prepting herself. She's not saying the thing head on. Even her own question, she faces questions because her parents are immigrants from far right.

Republicans, how does she plan on winning a Republican primary talking to the same people that she's trying to cater to that might be skeptical already of her? >> A great point.

Sharing is caring!
