According to the Post and Courier, Nikki Haley, who represented the United States as ambassador to the UN for a time while former President Donald Trump was in office, will reportedly announce her candidacy for president in 2024 in February.
Haley will run for president in 2024, a member of her inner circle has stated. The site also noted that a special announcement will occur on February 15 in accordance with an invitation that would be extended to Haley’s supporters.
Trump declared his intention to run for president again in November, so if Haley decides to enter the race, she would need to defeat him in the GOP presidential primary to win the party’s nominee.
