( – Former U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, who is running in the 2024 presidential election, argued that she didn’t join the race in order to be the Vice President.

On Thursday, during an interview with Politico, Haley pointed out how everyone was suggesting that she was campaigning just so she could be the VP, however, she argued that she was not running “for second.” She then claimed that she believes they have a country that they need to save and that she could not trust that anyone else was going to get it done.

Following former President Donald Trump’s announcement that he would be running in the 2024 presidential election, Haley was the first major Republican to announce they would be challenging Trump for the GOP nomination. Since the start of her campaign, she has had to repeatedly state that she was not looking to be the Vice President.

John Bolton, the former national security advisor who had also served as the U.N ambassador under former President George W. Bush, stated in February following Haley’s presidential announcement that in reality, she was “running for vice president.” This idea has also been perpetuated by many others despite the fact that Haley has repeatedly rejected it.

In a May interview with the Hill, she had argued that never in her life had she played for second and that she was looking to win.

According to the Morning Consult Survey, Trump is currently leading the 2024 Republican race with 57 percent, while Haley has only managed to win 3 percent of support.
