Former United Nations ambassador and Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley, who tossed her hat into the ring for consideration for the GOP presidential primary to be held January 2024, has absolutely zero chance, at this point, of getting the nomination. I mean, if you look at the polling data thus far, she’s so far behind former President Donald Trump and his only real competition for the nomination, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, that she’s really just tossing money and time in an incinerator.
However, even if that wasn’t the case, her recent comments on the issue of climate change, which she made during an interview with former Fox News host Tucker Carlson — who might just be the most important voice in the media world — would most certainly end her run. What did she say that was so bad.
Climate change is real.
“Haley indicated that she believes there were ‘irregularities’ during the 2020 presidential election but does not believe the issues altered the results of the election — she said she thinks Joe Biden ultimately won the contest. Haley also said that election integrity is an issue that needs to be addressed,” TheBlaze said.
“When Carlson asked Haley if she believes climate change is caused by human actions, she said that she believes ‘climate change is real.’ Carlson pressed the question again, but Haley indicated she was not certain. ‘Honestly, I don’t know how much is being changed or not, as much as I know that putting electric vehicles on the road is not the answer to what you’re doing,’ she said. She also said the U.S. should be energy independent,” the report continued.
However, Haley did state that if, by some miracle or cruel twist of fate — my words, not hers — she did end up sitting in the Oval Office, she would slap a mean veto down on any sort of spending measure that failed to return the government to pre-COVID levels of spending. So she’s got that going for her. Which is nice.
Carlson interviewed a number of different Republican Party candidates for president during the FAMiLY Leadership Summit on Friday. Haley served as a U.N. ambassador during a small part of former President Donald Trump’s presidency and served as the governor of South Carolina before that.

“Polls indicate that former President Donald Trump has a massive lead over the rest of the GOP presidential primary field, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis trailing in a distant second place. Trump was not one of the candidates who participated in the forum on Friday,” TheBlaze stated.
Contrary to the liberal narrative, the science about climate change is not at all settled. Most of us who have been paying attention to the policies proposed on this issue know that it’s nothing more than a socialist wealth redistribution scheme, taxes that are being disguised as environmental regulations in order to pass them.
They won’t do anything of real value to improve environmental conditions. That’s not what the agenda is about. It’s about gaining more power over the means of production and finding ways to take from business owners and slide the money into their own pockets.
