Nikki Haley has hinted at launching a presidential campaign, referring to the next president as “her” during a speech at the Christians United for Israel summit.
While speaking about President Joe Biden potentially entering a revamped Iran nuclear deal, the former U.N. Ambassador said, “and if this president signs any sort of deal, I’ll make you a promise. The next President will shred it…… on her first day in office.”
Breitbart reports: Although Haley did not officially launch a presidential bid, her use of the female pronoun prompted speculation from many political pundits that she was referring to herself as the next president.
Former Trump White House aide Steven Cheung said Haley’s comments were “Hillary Clinton levels of cringe.”
John Cardillo called Haley “politically delusional” after her Twitter account posted that quote from her speech.
In response to her statement, social media users quickly brought up former President Donald Trump, who many expect to launch a bid to return to the White House in 2024.
Human Events’ Jack Posobiec joked, “Wait, Trump is identifying as a woman for the 2024 race?”
The majority of feedback to Haley’s message was negative, with Twitter users calling her a “neocon” and “warmonger.”
“You’ll never be president. Nobody likes you except the handful of neocon ‘yes men’ that you’re surrounded by and the irrelevant National Review, which nobody reads,” Cassandra MacDonald tweeted.
