Presidential candidate Nikki Haley of the US Republican Party, the Grand Old Party (GOP), has said that if she takes office, she will cut every penny in foreign aid to countries that hate the US. This also applies to China, Pakistan and other adversaries, as “a strong America does not pay the bad guys”.
“I will cut every penny in foreign aid for countries that hate us. A strong America doesn’t pay off the bad guys. A proud America doesn’t waste our people’s hard-earned money. And the only leaders who deserve our trust are those who stand up to our enemies and stand with our friends,” Ms. Haley, the former governor of South Carolina and former U.S. ambassador to the UN, wrote in an op-ed for the New York Post.
According to Ms. Haley, America spent $46 billion on foreign aid last year. That is by far more than any other country. Taxpayers deserve to know where that money goes and what it does. They will be shocked to discover that a large portion of it goes to anti-American countries and charities.
Nikki Haley formally launched her 2024 campaign for the White House on Feb. 15 (local time), introducing herself to voters as part of a “new generation” of Republican leaders who can win at the polls.
Ms. Haley is now the first Indian-American woman from the Republican Party to run for the presidential bid. When the former South Carolina governor and US ambassador to the United Nations took the stage, Haley introduced herself as the proud daughter of Indian immigrants who were forging a new future for the Republican party.
Ms Haley said in the op-ed, citing examples, that the US has given Iran more than $2 billion in recent years, even as the government moves closer to Iran’s murderous thugs who chant “Death to America!” and launch attacks against our troops.
“The Biden administration has resumed military aid to Pakistan, even though it is home to at least a dozen terrorist organizations and the government is deeply entangled with China. Team Biden returned half a billion dollars to a corrupt UN organization supposed to help the Palestinian people. but in fact covers for deeply anti-Semitic propaganda against our ally Israel,” she said.
The US has given hundreds of millions of dollars to Zimbabwe, a country with one of the most anti-American sentiments in the UN.
American taxpayers are still giving money to Communist China for ridiculous environmental programs, despite the obvious threat China poses to Americans. We give money to Belarus, the closest ally of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin. We even give money to communist Cuba, a country designated by our own government as a state sponsor of terrorism, Haley said in her op-ed for the New York Post.
“This is not just Joe Biden. It has been happening for decades under presidents of both parties. Our foreign aid policy is stuck in the past. It generally operates on autopilot, without regard to the behavior of the countries receiving our aid. It will take a determined president to stamp out this taxpayer rip-off.”
Ms. Haley said she is running for president to restore US strength, national pride and people’s confidence. It is smart to support American allies and friends like Israel and Ukraine. Sending our tax money to enemies is not.
“I will be that president, just as I was that ambassador,” Nikki Haley wrote.
“As ambassador, I strongly supported President Donald Trump’s decision to cut nearly $2 billion in military aid to Pakistan because that country supports terrorists who kill US troops. It was a great victory for our troops, our taxpayers and our vital interests , but it didn’t.” I’m not going far enough. We still gave them way too much other help. As president, I will block every penny,” the US presidential candidate continued.
Aiming to move away from the “old ideas and faded ideas” of the past, Indian-American leader Nikki Haley announced her candidacy for the 2024 Republican presidential nomination on February 15 (Wednesday).
After Republican leader Nikki Haley, another Indian-American healthcare and technology entrepreneur, Vivek Ramaswamy, announced his bid for the 2024 US presidential election on Wednesday (local time).
“We’ve celebrated our ‘diversity’ so much that we’ve forgotten all the ways we’re really the same as Americans, bound by ideals that united a divided, stubborn group of people 250 years ago. I believe deep down in my bones those ideals still exist I am running for president to revive them,” Ramaswamy tweeted in a video announcing his intention to run for president.
