Nikki Haley says she will not run for president in 2024 if Trump seeks a second term
Former U.N. Ambassador and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said she will not run for president in 2024 if former President Donald Trump chooses to run for a second term, and will support him if he does run.
“I would not run if President Trump ran, and I would talk to him about it,” Haley told reporters on Monday during a visit to South Carolina State University. “That’s something that we’ll have a conversation about, at some point, if that decision is something that has to be made.”
Haley responded, “yes,” when asked if she would support a second bid by Trump in 2024.
The former South Carolina governor said she has not talked to Trump since the November election, however, she praised the former president, saying she had “a great working relationship” with him during her time in his administration.
Haley resigned as South Carolina governor in 2016 to join Trump’s Cabinet where she remained until 2018.
Haley is a potential contender for the GOP’s presidential nomination in 2024.
