Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is reentering politics, but this time from behind the scenes
According to recent reports, Haley has started a new group called ‘Stand for America,’ which will push for domestic and international policies.
Domestically, the group will focus on issues like promoting American culture, border security, term limits and combating socialism. Internationally, the group will take a focus on the dangers posed from countries like China, Russia and Iran.
Haley has been relatively quiet since stepping-down as UN ambassador in October. However, while accepting an award from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation earlier this month, she said she’s not done with politics.
“I can promise you, I’m too young to stop fighting,” she told the crowd. “Because we have press in the back room — no, that does not mean I’m running for president.”
President Trump has since nominated Kelly Knight Craft for UN ambassador after State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert dropped out of the running. Craft served as the U.S. Ambassador to Canada since September of 2017, and now looks to fill the role previously held by Haley.
