Key Points
  • On Wednesday, Nikki Haley decided to halt her presidential campaign.
  • This action made it possible for Donald Trump to secure the Republican nomination
  • The US presidential election is set for November of 2024.

Nikki Haley, a former US ambassador to the United Nations and Republican presidential contender, withdrew her campaign on Wednesday, leaving former President Donald Trump as the party’s sole nominee.

“It is now appropriate for me to put my campaign on hold. I expressed my desire for Americans to be heard. That’s what I’ve done. Haley declared, “I have no regrets,” announcing her withdrawal from the presidential contest.

According to reports, Haley decided to withdraw from the US presidential vote after Super Tuesday’s primary races saw her lose all but one state, Vermont.

During her speech today, the Indian-American candidate refrained from endorsing Trump, instead advising the former US President to aggressively pursue the backing of Republican and independent voters who had previously supported her.

“He bears the onus to secure the votes of both our party members and individuals outside its sphere,” she stated. My wish is for him to accomplish this.

Notably, in their respective parties’ presidential nomination contests, which were contested in fifteen US states, Trump and Democratic Party President Joe Biden triumphed.

Following the results of Super Tuesday’s election, 77-year-old Trump emerged victorious over Haley, the only other Republican contender, in the delegates count. Trump won impressively in Texas, California, and eleven other states; however, Haley’s victory in Vermont prevented him from winning a landslide.
