( – On Monday, it was announced that former GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley has joined the Hudson Institute, a conservative foreign policy think tank. 

Haley, who had served during the Trump administration as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, has been named the Walter P. Stern Chair. In a statement, she pointed out that when policymakers were not placing their attention on their alliances and calling out their adversaries it made the world “less safe.” She continued by pointing out that this was why the think tank’s work was so important. 

The post held by Haley was named after Walter “Wally” Stern, the former chairman who passed away in 2022. Haley noted in her announcement that she was looking forward to joining the organization and defending the principles that made the United States so great. 

Hudson’s Board of Trustees chair Sarah May Stern argued that it was fitting for Haley to be taking on this title. She added that she was an insightful and courageous policymaker and pointed out how important these qualities had been in making Hudson into a powerhouse. She finished off her statement by arguing that she was “proud” that Haley had joined the organization. 

Herman Kahn founded the organization in 1961 and according to the Washington, D.C.-based group, it is focused on challenging conventional thinking through interdisciplinary studies in various areas including culture, international relations, defense, law, economics, and others. 

Last month, Haley announced that she would be withdrawing from the Republican primary. She is now the fourth former Trump administration member to join the organization. Previously Trump alums to have joined include former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, former Attorney General William Barr, and former Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao.
