Former US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spoke Monday night at a Christians United for Israel (CUFI) summit just outside Washington, D.C., hinting at a possible 2024 presidential run.
In her speech, Haley slammed US President Joe Biden's attempts to revive the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, saying, "The president is desperate to get back into the Iran nuclear deal."
"He’s made clear that he’ll do almost anything to get the ayatollahs to sign on the dotted line. It’s painfully obvious that the current White House is bad at negotiating."
She emphasized, "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."
Though many would like to see Haley run for office, last year she said that if former US President Donald Trump runs for re-election, she will not run.
Haley emphasized that the Iranian threat must be of top priority, stressing, "Our national security depends on keeping the bomb away from Iran. And if America won’t, then Israel must, and we should help."
"Israel needs our support in this dangerous time. And we need to stop running from our shadow and recover our national strength. America is losing faith in itself, and if we don’t regain our confidence and pride, then Israel will suffer. So will the whole world."
Praising Israel, Haley added, "Modern Israel provides all the inspiration we need. She was given life by those who walked through the valley of the shadow of death. Our faith compels us to fight the return of that darkness. And in Israel, we see the goodness of God kindled into light."
"And as Christians, as Americans, we are proud to stand with Israel. The challenges they face, we will overcome together. And with courage and faith, we will go forward – confident that our work will be rewarded, in this life, and the next."
"Our allies don’t trust us, and our enemies don’t fear us," she noted.
