Prominent Indian-American Republican leader Nikki Haley has said that she feels she could be the “new leader” to take the country in a new direction and that Joe Biden may not get a second term as US President. In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, the former South Carolina governor and US ambassador to the United Nations said she plans to run for the presidency.
Asked if she is joining the presidential race, the 51-year-old leader said, “I think, you keep an eye out. Well, I’m not going to make any announcements here.” However, during the interview, Haley hinted that she could be the new leader of the United States. Haley said, “But when you look at the presidential race, you look at two things. You see first whether the current situation is indicating a new leadership? The second question is, am I the person who can emerge as a new leader, yes, we need to go in a new direction? And can I be that leader? Yes, I think I can be that leader.
Haley, who resigned from the Trump administration in October 2018, said she had done a great job as governor and ambassador. Haley, the second Indian-origin governor of Louisiana after fellow Republican Bobby Jindal, said it was time for new leadership in the Republican Party. During the interview, Haley also emphasized that President Biden, a Democrat, should not be given a second term. The next US presidential election is to be held on November 5, 2024.
