(Republicaninformer.com)- John Bolton, a former national security advisor, believes Nikki Haley is just running for president in 2024, so she can become vice president.
In an interview before Haley’s announcement, Bolton implied that her friendliness with Donald Trump in the past would be an issue for her credibility and said that the previous president would have tremendous fun with her flip-flopping on the campaign trail.
According to reports, Trump has already started reviving his heated attacks against Haley, posting an old tape of her promising to support him in 2024 on Truth Social in response to speculation that she was considering a run.
Haley’s work in the Trump administration has been criticized by Bolton, who once said that she was more interested in advancing her political career than in carrying out her responsibilities in the area of foreign policy.
In a video, Haley declared her candidacy for president in 2024, urging voters to elect a “new generation of leadership.” She then promised to make a major statement in Charleston, South Carolina, which many believed would be the official start of her campaign.
Reports show the next destination on the itinerary is New Hampshire, followed by Iowa. She is the first prominent Republican to oppose Trump in the GOP primary.
A former South Carolina governor and U.N. ambassador, Haley has received high-profile criticism for her early campaign rhetoric.
Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan criticized Haley’s campaign launch, calling it trite and fake.
Democrat Senator from Vermont, Bernie Sanders, called Nikki Haley’s proposal to require lawmakers to pass a mental fitness test ageism. He claimed it should be addressed in the same manner as other types of discrimination.
As Haley emphasized the age of legislators and said it was time for a new generation of leaders, the matter quickly became an issue in the 2024 presidential campaign.
Sanders, who is 81 years old, termed her proposals ludicrous.
Haley’s proposal included term limits for Congress and a required competence test for legislators over 75.
