Nikki Haley pledges to cut billions in foreign aid to Pakistan, China

Los Angeles, Feb. 27, 2023 A.Gary Singh Grewal

NRI Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley pledges to cut billions in foreign aid to Pakistan, China, Feb. 26, 2023

US spent USD 46 billion on foreign aid last year. US Democratic President resumed military aid to Pakistan, though it's home to at least a dozen terrorist organizations and its government.

Nicki Haley, the Former Governor of South Carolina and former US ambassador to the UN, wrote:

  • I will cut every cent 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 beside our friends,

US taxpayers still give money to Communist China for ridiculous environmental programs, despite the obvious threat China poses to Americans.

  • We give money to Belarus, which is Russian dictator Vladimir Putin's closest ally. We even give money to Communist Cuba -- a country our own government has designated as a state sponsor of terrorism.
  • We have given hundreds of millions of dollars to Zimbabwe, a country with one of the most anti-American voting records in the UN.


Nikki Haley announces run for White House, touts Indian heritage

Los Angeles, Feb. 14, 2023 A.Gary Singh Grewal

Nikky Haley on Tuesday announced she is running for President, becoming the third Indian American to seek the highest political office in the US.

Haley, born Nimrata ‘Nikki’ Randhawa, announced her bid in a video message in which she touts her unique upbringing as an Indian American, which made her acutely conscious and representative of America’s diversity. She speaks about her achievements as South Carolina Governor and foreign policy chops earned as Ambassador to the UN, where, she showed she cannot put up with bullies — essentially China and Russia — and that she can kick back, which can be painful because of her high heels.

Haley has been rising star in the Republican party and long expected to run for the White House. She is a former two-term Governor of South Carolina, one of America’s most conservative states, and former Ambassador to the United Nations, a cabinet-rank position she held in the administration of then President Donald Trump.

Trump is also running and Haley is going up against her former boss. They will clash in the Republican primaries, which is expected to grow with more candidates, including the most highly anticipated of them all, Ron DeSantis, the two-term Florida Governor.



NRI Nikki Haley to announce US presidential bid on Feb 15

Los Angeles, Feb. 01, 2023 A.Gary Singh Grewal

Republican leader Nikki Haley plans to announce the launch of her 2024 presidential campaign by February 15, according to a report.

Haley, 51, who served as South Carolina governor for six years, will formally declare her candidacy for the White House at an event in Charleston, South Carolina, on February 15, with an invitation soon going out to her supporters, the Post and Courier reported.

The confirmation she is entering the race came on January 31 from a member of Haley’s inner circle, the newspaper said.
Earlier this month, Haley told Fox News that the US cannot have a second term under Joe Biden as president and that she can be the “new leader” who can take the country in a new direction.

Haley, who served as ambassador to the UN during Trump’s administration, had said that she is still working things out on any potential presidential run.


NRI Nikki Haley, Ex-governor of South Carolina criticizes former President Trump for U.S. Capitol riots


Los Angeles, Feb. 13, 2021 A.Gary Singh Grewal

Nikki Randhawa Haley, Ex-governor of South Carolina and U.S. Ex-Ambassador to the United Nations from 2017 to 2018, criticizes former President Trump for U.S. Capitol riots.
According  to CNN, she told Politico magazine in an interview published Friday:

  • We need to acknowledge Trump let us down
  • He went down a path he shouldn't have, and we shouldn't have followed him, and we shouldn't have listened to him.
  • We can't let that ever happen again

Haley expressed anger over Trump's treatment of former Vice President Mike Pence on January 6 and said she hasn't spoken with Trump since then.

"We need to acknowledge he let us down," she told Politico magazine in an interview published Friday. "He went down a path he shouldn't have, and we shouldn't have followed him, and we shouldn't have listened to him. And we can't let that ever happen again."



2020 was the year socialism went mainstream.....Nikki Haley

Los Angeles, Dec. 30, 2020 A.Gary Singh Grewal

  • “2020 was the year socialism went mainstream. The dangerous ideology, which has failed everywhere it has been tried & ruined countless lives, is on its way to becoming the default economic policy of the Democratic Party. This terrifying trend threatens the future of every American,” Haley wrote.
  • She is reduced to hollering about socialism. Perhaps with an eye on 2024, she figures nonsensical accusations are the way to gain favor in her intellectually vacant party. “The rise of socialism has been a long time coming. Four years ago, the Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders (I-VT) nearly became the left’s presidential candidate,” she declares on her PAC’s website. “Fast forward to 2020 and he almost did it again, while socialists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) are exerting tremendous pressure on leftist language and policy.” She is aware that Sanders lost both times, that President-elect Joe Biden rejected Medicare-for-all and that “leftist language and policy” are not evident in any of Biden’s appointments or rhetoric, right?
  • She writes: “The Democrat Party now demands a government health plan that would destroy private health care, an energy plan like the ‘Green New Deal’ that would use the power of government to remake virtually the entire economy, greater government power over job creators and workers through heavy-handed mandates, and massive tax hikes that would bring the economy to a crawl.”
  •  She decries that if “the past year has taught us anything, it’s that when government dictates how the economy is run, Americans suffer in extraordinary ways.” Haley, it seems, objects to lockdowns that saved lives. And socialism apparently does not extend to giving out $2,000 checks to Americans or extending loans to airlines, as Trump has advocated.

A former ambassador to the United Nations and former South Carolina governor, Nikki Haley, once had a reputation for sane conservative views. She removed the Confederate flag from the state capitol’s grounds and even denounced then-candidate Donald Trump’s proposed Muslim ban. As U.N. ambassador, she managed to condemn war crimes committed by Syria and Russia despite her boss’s bowing and scraping before Russian President Vladimir Putin.

  • Washington June 10, 2004: Nikki Randhawa, NRI, Sikh Busimess woman won the run-off election to the South Carolina State Assembly.

Nikki Randhawa Haley, 32-year-old Sikh woman has won the run-off election to the South Carolina State Assembly, 87th District defeating Larry Koon, American member of 30 years. Nikki Randhawa Haley will be the first Sikh and fifth Indian American to enter a US state legislature. Nikki Randhawa got 54.69 per cent votes (2,928 votes), while Koon got 45.31 per cent (2426 votes)

Haley ran for the election after Koon said he would not contest again. But later he changed his mind and returned to the fray. He said that the state''s budget problem was the reason for his change of heart. In the election held on June 8 Koon got 2,354 votes (42.27 per cent) while Haley got 2,247 votes (40.35 per cent). A third candidate, David Perry, an insurance broker, got 968 votes, (17.38 per cent). Since nobody got more than 50 per cent, a runoff was necessitated. There is no Democratic candidate and Haley automatically becomes the assemblywoman. After the election in June 8, Haley said she was sure of victory at the runoff in June 22. As a Sikh, there were questions about her faith. "But everybody knows us. She is born and brought up here only. Her husband is an American. Their two children go to the church as well as the temple. We explained these to the sceptics," Ajit Randhawa, her father said. Haley promises to be a spokesperson for the Indian Americans, women, and the business community. The 87th district is a very southern district in the southern state of South Carolina. People are mostly conservative and 98 per cent of the voters are Republican. She said she is Republican because it supports business and stands for many of the ideals she cherishes. She is pro-life also. "Does it matter for the Indian community whether the candidate is Republican or Democrat? What we need is people in political office. Party affiliation is irrelevant for us at this time," she said earlier. The district has 22,000 voters and the number of Indians is very few.
