After the United States Government successfully accomplished their objective to take out Qasem Solimani last week at the instruction of President Donald J. Trump former UN Ambassador and former South Carolina Governor, Nikki Haley, tweeted her support for the president.
“Qassem Soleimani was an arch terrorist with American blood on his hands,” wrote Haley. “His demise should be applauded by all who seek peace and justice. Proud of President Trump for doing the strong and right thing. @realDonaldTrump”
Shortly following the death of Soimani, Haley made an appearance on Sean Hannity’s show to discuss the value of this decision made by President Trump.
Haley has even expressed her desire to see the United States pursue escalation in Iran.
Many democrats have expressed their objection to the attack, even going so far as to praise the Soleimani as some kind of beacon of morality, despite how he treated his own people, and the attacks he ordered on United States military bases.
Haley said on the January 6, 2020 episode of Sean Hannity’s show, according to USA Today:
“What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed,” Haley stated. “They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes. But when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that to happen. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”
Author of ‘Paleo Manifesto,’ John Durant,’ has expressed concern in regard to the motives of Governor Haley due to her recently joining the Boeing’s Board of directors in 2019.
Durant tweeted, “I don’t want to hear anyone on Boeing’s board pushing for war.”

Durand expresses concern with this business relationship between Haley and her fellow board of directors due to the fact that Boeing is known for having a major influence on the military-industrial complex.
Despite the push Haley and other prominent Republicans, President Trump is advocating for minimal foreign interference.
