Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Monday launched a new group whose aim is to promote public policies “that strengthen America’s economy, culture, and national security.”
Haley, a rising star in the Republican Party and a potential presidential candidate in 2024, left her post two months ago. She recently told The Washington Post she has not decided whether she will run then, but her activities suggest otherwise.
Her group, “Stand for America,” endorses “taking a more aggressive approach to China’s unfair trade practices” and holding “China’s feet to the fire to help get rid of North Korea’s nuclear weapons,” according to its website.
Haley also in her statement said U.S. “prosperity is challenged by socialist schemes of higher taxes, job-destroying regulations, government-run healthcare, and unsecure borders.”
The group will also focus on term limits for members of Congress.
Haley, a former South Carolina governor, has spent nearly 14 years in political office. She also told the Post she is working on a book covering the past five years in public office.
“It will not be a tell-all,” a Haley adviser, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, told the Post. “She is not going to attack people in the administration; it’s not a score-settling thing. But she says things the way she thinks them. It’ll be her voice.”
