In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, Nikki Haley tossed her hat into the ring for a possible 2024 presidential bid. The former governor of South Carolina and ex-United Nations ambassador didn't rule out a possibility of running under the GOP banner, but made it clear that she would not run directly against Trump.
During the interview, Haley didn't shy away from the fact that America needs a leader that won't shy away from stepping up to the plate. “It's bigger than one person,” she said. “And when you're looking at the future of America, I think it's time for new generational change. I don't think you need to be 80 years old to go be a leader in D.C., I think we need a young generation to come in, step up, and really start fixing things.”
Whether she is a better candidate than Donald Trump as the Republican nominee in 2024 remains to be seen, but Haley maintains that she “can be that leader.'
Whenever the former president Trump is involved with news, Twitter reactions reach all-time highs. Thursday evening was no different, as many users took to the social media platform to express their opinions on the possibility of Nikki Haley running for presidency in 2024.
The Twitter account RussOnPolitics says she will be fighting a losing battle, as “hardcore MAGA folks don't trust her.”
Nikki Haley will never be President. Why? Because the hardcore MAGA folks don't trust her and neither do the Never Trumpers.— Russell Drew (@RussOnPolitics) January 19, 2023
And also: She was utterly unqualified to be ambassador to the U.N. ZERO foreign policy experience. And she was only there for two years. She dabbled. pic.twitter.com/cOqoYMR9dk
This particular user thinks Trump would lose in a head-to-head against Nikki Haley, even though Haley clearly stated she has no interest in running directly against the former president:
Nikki Haley would destroy Trump in a primary he's so weak now and the GOP is finished with him.— HaleyFan 🇺🇸🇬🇧 (@NikkiHaleyFan02) January 19, 2023
This user certainly looks like she's trying to start controversy with this specific tweet aimed directly at Haley:

Asking this serious question out of genuine concern for Nikki Haley. Which isn’t even her real name.
Her real name is “Nimrata”. https://t.co/rK0Lv3VLx6
Some users, like kenton_chow, is not impressed with Haley whatsoever, dismissing her as “just another Trumper.”
Nikki Haley is just another Trumper, willing to say anything to further her own self interests, not America’s— Ken 😎🗽🏌️♂️🏈⚾️🏀 (@kenton_chow) January 19, 2023
This user absolutely does not want to see Haley running for president in 2024:
Nikki Haley flirting with a Presidential run?— Linda Blais (@LindaB1310) January 19, 2023
Put me in the column of NO, NEVER and ABSOLUTELY NOT.
One of Haley's ex-constituents from South Carolina says that she has always thought that Haley would become the first woman president in U.S. history:
I’ve said it since Nikki Haley was Governor of my state, South Carolina that she will be the first woman President.— Knot Left Dave (@KnotLeftDave) January 20, 2023
I still stand by that prediction. She has never lost a political race. Are you with me?
Twitter user AnthonySabatini clearly is not a fan of Ms. Haley:
America’s best days lie ahead— Anthony Sabatini (@AnthonySabatini) January 15, 2023
Primarily because Nikki Haley will never be President
Some social media users put Haley in the same boat as Mike Pence – someone who has no chance of becoming the Republican nominee for 2024:
Nikki Haley has the same chance of being the Republican nominee as Mike Pence does. Zero chance.— Bryan (@NotAChaunce) January 19, 2023
