Nikki Haley, former South Carolina Governor and U.S. ambassador to the UN, announced she will run for president in 2024 as a Republican.

If successful in the primary, she would be the first Asian American and woman nominated by the Republican Party for president.

Haley's platform includes fiscal responsibility, securing the border, and strengthening the country.

Haley has emphasized her record as a two-time governor of South Carolina and her leadership after a mass shooting in 2015.

She left the Trump administration on good terms and is positioning herself as a candidate who can appeal to Trump supporters and his more moderate critics.

Other potential Republican candidates for 2024 include Ron DeSantis, Mike Pence, and Mike Pompeo.

A crowded Republican primary field could be advantageous to Trump and splinter the vote.

Trump recently appeared to bless Haley's entrance into the race, saying, "You should do it."

Haley has experience in foreign policy and referenced her time as a UN ambassador in her campaign announcement.

Haley would like to be a leader who doesn't tolerate bullies and can stand up to countries like China and Russia.
