Haley says she would support Trump if he is 2024 GOP nominee
Haley also said she does not think Trump is capable of winning the general election.
Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley on Monday said she would support former President Donald Trump if he becomes the GOP nominee for the 2024 presidential election.
However, Haley also said she does not think Trump is capable of winning the general election.
"I would support him because I am not going to have a President Kamala Harris. We can’t afford that. That is not going to happen," Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under Trump, said on CNBC’s "Squawk Box."
Although Trump is polling far ahead of all other GOP candidates, Haley said she does not think he can win the general election.
"We can’t have, as Republicans, him as the nominee. He can’t win a general election. That’s the problem. We’ve got to go and have someone who can actually win."
Still making the case for why she should be the nominee, Haley also said how she served as South Carolina governor for two terms, where she lowered unemployment and boosted the state's economy.
"It is time for a new leader with new solutions that can move us forward," she added.
