Nikki Haley stated that India has acted wisely in the current global environment and has maintained tight ties with Russia. Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley stated on Wednesday that India wants to be a partner with the United States, but does not trust Americans to lead. The Indian-American presidential candidate further stated that India has played wisely in the current global environment by remaining close to Russia.
Nikki Haley stated in an interview with Fox Business News that India currently views the United States as weak, according to news agency PTI. I must express that I’ve also engaged with India. I’ve had discussions with Modi. India desires to align as a partner with us, not with Russia. However, the issue lies in India’s lack of trust in our ability to succeed and lead. Currently, they perceive us as weak. India has historically made astute decisions, maintaining close ties with Russia due to their reliance on Russian military equipment.”
When we regain leadership and address our weaknesses instead of ignoring them, our allies such as India, Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Japan, and South Korea will be eager to align with us. India implemented a billion-dollar stimulus package to reduce its dependence on China, she informed Fox Business News, emphasizing the need for the US to strengthen its alliances.
Haley had aimed to establish herself as a serious contender against Trump but ultimately fell short, losing to the ‘none of these candidates’ choice. This marked the first time a presidential candidate faced such a defeat since Nevada introduced the option in 1975.
