Nikki Haley said Wednesday, May 22, that she will vote for Donald Trump in November's presidential election, a notable show of support given their intense and often personal rivalry during the campaign for the Republican presidential nomination .

At the same time, Haley also made it clear that, in her opinion, Trump has work to do to win over the voters who supported her during the campaign and continue to vote for her during the primaries.

“I will vote for Trump,” Haley, a former US ambassador to the UN, said during an event at the Hudson Institute in Washington, reports  Associated Press.

"Having said that, I do not retract what I said in my speech about suspending my participation in the presidential race, Haley added. Trump would be wise to appeal to the millions of people who voted for me and continue to support me, rather than assume they will simply follow him. And I sincerely hope that he will do so.”.

The comments, in her first public appearance since leaving the presidential race, are another signal of the near-total consolidation of Republican support for Trump. party, even from those who in the past called him a “threat.”

Haley abandoned her bid for the Republican nomination two months ago but did not immediately endorse Trump, accusing him of “creating chaos and ignoring the importance of US alliances abroad” and wondering whether “the 77-year-old is too old” Trump to become president again.”

Trump, in turn, repeatedly ridiculed her, saying she had a “bird brain.” He stopped those attacks after winning enough delegates to become the presumptive Republican nominee in March.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Haley's statement.

Meanwhile, President Joe Biden's campaign has been working to win over her supporters, whom they consider true swing voters.
According to people familiar with the plans but not authorized to discuss them publicly, Biden's team is quietly organizing a Republicans for Biden group that will eventually include dedicated staffers and focus on Haley's hundreds of thousands of voters in every battleground state.

That said, Haley offered several criticisms in a speech Wednesday at the Hudson Institute, a conservative Washington think tank she recently joined as she re-entered the political arena. .

It was about Joe Biden's foreign policy, as well as his actions regarding the problem on the border between the United States and Mexico.
