Nikki: ‘This Is About America’ (Video)

Nikki Haley

(DCWatchdog.com) – Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley spoke extensively about her relationship with former President Donald Trump while in Israel, saying that her support for her former GOP rival is about America being stronger and doing the right thing.

Watch the video further down this post.

While she was in Israel, Trump stated Haley would “absolutely” be on his “team in some form” going forward shortly after Haley pledged to vote for him in November.

This new development comes despite the heated rhetoric from their campaigns before she ended her presidential bid in March.

When asked how she could work with Trump moving forward, Haley emphasized not taking campaign fights “personal” and the importance of working together for the country.

“I’ve always been able to take the emotion and the personal part out of politics because that is the only way you can do the right thing,” Haley said at a press conference during a tour of southern Israel.

“This is about America. It’s about a strong America, it’s about a strong Israel. It’s about having the backs of our friends,” she continued.

Haley also stressed that voting to reelect Joe Biden was not an option when comparing his policies to Trump’s.

“This is all about policy, and when you look at the policies of the two, I am very much on one side. It’s not even close,” she added. “We sparred in a campaign. If I thought either one of them were great, I wouldn’t have run. I ran because I thought I could do a better job, but at the end of the day, it is what it is.”

Furthermore, Haley spoke during a press conference in Sderot after touring places in Israel attacked by Hamas on October 7, including Kibbutz Nir Oz, the site of the Nova massacre, a military base by the Gaza border, and the site of the now-destroyed police station in Sderot.

Last week, Trump described Haley as a “very capable person.”

“We had a nasty campaign,” Trump said in an interview. “But she’s a very capable person, and I’m sure she’s going to be on our team in some form, absolutely.” He added that the two “have a lot of the same ideas, the same thoughts.”

During her visit to Israel, Haley mostly avoided discussing the presidential election. She criticized both Republicans and Democrats for not effectively communicating the importance of supporting Israel to the American people.
