Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley announced her 2024 presidential campaign on Tuesday, making her former president Donald Trump the first opponent for the Republican nomination.

Haley served as ambassador to the United Nations for two years in the Trump administration. She is expected to deliver her announcement speech in person on Wednesday in Charleston, South Carolina.

«It’s time for a new generation of leadership to rediscover fiscal responsibility, secure our border, and strengthen our country, our pride, and our purpose.» Haley said in a video announcing her campaign.

In her ad, Haley accuses the «socialist left» of seeing «an opportunity to rewrite history».

«China and Russia are on the march. Everyone thinks we can get bullied, kicked around,» Haley says. «You should know this about me: I don’t tolerate bullies. And when you relax, they hurt more if you’re wearing heels. I’m Nikki Haley and I’m running for president.»
