( – Republican Presidential candidate Nikki Haley, former South Carolina governor and Trump-era United Nations Ambassador, stated during a Fox News town hall meeting that she would defeat former president Donald Trump “fair and square” and that she did not need to have him removed from the state ballot.

On Monday night Haley argued that Trump should not be taken off the ballot in the primary race and that the Supreme Court needed to issue a ruling on this topic. The statement was made during the town hall in Iowa. As Haley pointed out, eliminating Trump from the ballot was not a door that they wanted to open, and she did not need anyone including those in Colorado and the Democrats removing him from the ballot.

These remarks led to the crowd applauding her.

Haley proceeded to argue that this situation of telling people what they could do and how to live their lives had started during the pandemic. However, she argued that Americans needed to be allowed to decide on their own whether or not they wanted Trump to appear on the ballot.

The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments on whether the Colorado Supreme Court had the right to remove Trump from the primary ballot in the state citing the 14th Amendment “insurrection clause” and Trump’s involvement in the Jan. 6, 2021 Capitol attack as the reason.

The case is set to be heard on an expedited basis by the justices.
