Nikki Haley meets with Trump amid 2024 speculation
F ormer United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley visited former President Donald Trump weeks after he denied her such a meeting.
The meeting between the two Republicans, both of whom are potential contenders in the 2024 presidential election, took place at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, and a source told The Hill it was as "positive." What exactly they discussed is unknown.
Haley feuded with Trump publicly following the aftermath of the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. In a feature story in Politico , she blasted the former president for his refusal to concede the 2020 election and suggested he was responsible for the violence.
Shortly after those remarks against Trump, he refused to meet with her in February at Mar-a-Largo. Since then, she has worked to make amends with the former president.
Haley, who is also a former governor of South Carolina, is widely seen as a potential contender for the 2024 presidential election. In April, Haley said that she would not run in 2024 if Trump ran. In October, she walked that back and suggested that her decision about 2024 is not dependent on what Trump does.
In January, she started the Stand for America political action committee, which is dedicated to establishing a conservative majority in Congress. She has also been politically engaged with key states such as Iowa , New Hampshire , and Virginia .
During a speech Thursday, when she received the Nathan Hale Patriot Award from the Citadel Republican Society, Haley said she anticipates that Republicans will regain control of Congress in 2022.
