Conservative firebrand Marjorie Taylor Greene said during the GOP presidential primary debate that candidate that former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley would start World War III if she is elected president.
“Nikki Haley is the worst candidate on the stage,” Greene wrote on X, the platform previously called Twitter.
“She would start WW3 on day one.”
While the Republican Party has been split on the Ukraine war, Haley said it would be backward to ignore it, saying it would only empower China.
Haley wrote in a Wall Street Journal Op-Ed that the Biden administration “has given Ukraine only enough to slow the Russian advance, not to repel it” and added that “more surprising is the weakness from some on the right.”
“They say the U.S. shouldn’t care about Ukraine because this war isn’t our fight. Some call it a mere ‘territorial dispute,'” Haley wrote.
“They say we should ignore Ukraine so we can focus on China. This has it backward. China loses if Ukraine wins.”
Greene fiercely opposes the war in Ukraine.
“Democrats, RINOs (losers like Mitt Romney), and the media will hate me for saying this…but America’s border is more important to Americans than Ukraine’s borders,” she wrote on social media earlier this year.
Earlier this year, Haley took aim at President Donald Trump for his claim he could end the Ukraine war in a day, calling it “ridiculous.”
During an appearance on FNC’s “You World” on Tuesday, host Neil Cavuto asked Haley, “What do you think Donald Trump meant by ending it in a day?”
“I think it’s ridiculous. He knows that he can’t end the war in a day. Everybody else knows he can’t end the war in a day.”
“He says these crazy things. It’s not true,” Haley said.
“We’ve got a realistic situation on our hands. The way we end the war is to get Putin out. It’s not to appease Putin.”
“The way we end the war is to be strong and work on our alliance. When I worked on dealing with Iran at the United Nations, or when we focused on dealing with Russia, with Syria, when we had to negotiate with the Security Council and getting the largest sanctions against a country in a generation, with North Korea, we didn’t do it from a point of weakness,” Haley continued.
