On Tuesday, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley gave a brief preview of her plan to challenge former President Donald Trump, the only other Republican to formally register their 2024 candidacy.
Haley said at a town hall meeting in Salem, New Hampshire, that her former employer has the support of a “hard 25%” of the Republican base. When asked by a voter how she expects to beat Trump, Haley said, “There are 75% other Republicans there that are seeking for a place to be.” She also said that she will not be holding any “huge rallies” throughout her campaign.
“You have to go and answer the hard questions,” Haley said. “You have to go face to face. You can’t fly in and fly out. And I believe the American people want you to earn their vote. I don’t think they’re gonna give it.”
Haley resigned in 2018 after serving as U.S. ambassador to the UN during the Trump administration. She had previously served as governor of South Carolina for six years. She pointed to the campaigns of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and former Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker as evidence that polls can be misleading.
“The polls today will not be the same polls,” Haley went on. “They are a year from now. If you need examples, do I need to remind you about Jeb Bush? He had tons of money. Do I need to remind you about my friend Scott Walker? He was ‘Teflon Scott.'”
Haley told the Associated Press in 2021 that she “would not run” for president in 2020 if Trump were to seek the Republican nomination. In spite of this, Trump admitted last month that he had urged Haley to run when she called to tell him she was going to declare her candidacy.

“I said, ‘You should do it,'” Trump told reporters in February. “I talked to her for a little while. I said, ‘Look, you know, go by your heart if you want to run.'” Haley also addressed the six deaths, including three elementary school-aged children, at a private school in Nashville, Tennessee on Monday.
“We don’t want to see that happen,” Haley said. “How much longer is this country going to ignore mental health? It is cancer, and it is killing our kids.” This was Haley’s second round of remarks regarding the massacre.

Haley spoke in favor of installing metal detectors in schools at a town hall meeting in Dover, New Hampshire, on Monday. “It’s okay if there are metal detectors,” Haley said. “There are those guests coming in and out. The kids see them in an airport, they see them wherever they go. Why don’t we do that to protect those kids?”
The shooter had at least two assault weapons and a handgun, according to the police in Nashville. “Everybody wants to talk about gun control,” Haley said. “My thing is, I don’t want to take away your ability to protect yourself until they do those things that protect those kids.”
