Before serving as United Nations ambassador for President Donald Trump, Haley, 51, was governor of South Carolina for six years. Haley will be the first candidate to enter the race against her former employer, who is presently the lone Republican seeking his party’s candidacy for 2024, when she does so.
As part of his leadership team in the early-voting state, Trump was in South Carolina on Saturday for the first swing of his 2024 campaign. He was joined by Gov. Henry McMaster, who served as Haley’s lieutenant governor, and many GOP state legislators.
Haley occasionally fought with other White House aides while promoting her own public image throughout the Trump administration.
After she left the campaign in 2018, there were rumors that Haley may run against President Trump in 2020 or take Vice President Mike Pence’s place. However, Haley did neither.
Haley initially questioned Trump’s political future following the Capitol siege on January 6, but she later declared she wouldn’t run against him in 2024. Haley stated to The Associated Press in 2021 that she “would not run if President Trump ran,” but she has subsequently changed her position and increased engagement through her Stand for America organization and political action committee, endorsing numerous candidates in the 2022 midterm elections.
