Nikki Haley praised Donald Trump’s decisions and achievements on the issues of North Korea, Iran, Israel, and China as part of the US First Policy.

Why Nikki Haley is important

There has been a discussion about the appointment of American citizen of Indian origin Nikki Haley as the President and Vice-Presidential candidate, but currently she is not contesting for any post.

According to Joe Biden’s election campaign, there are about 13.1 lakh American Indian voters in the US whose trends can prove to be decisive in eight constituencies.

At the same time, according to an assessment by the Trump Victory Indian American Finance Committee, “About half of the Indian American voters can go in favor of Trump rather than Biden.”

In such a situation, both parties are trying to woo Indian American voters. Kamla Harris of Indian origin is being said to be the main reason for the election.

The Republican Party has re-nominated Mike Pence as vice-presidential candidate. But on the issue of Indian Americans, he could not become a direct challenge to Kamala Harris. In such a situation, Nikki Haley has emerged as an option for Republicans.

This is also indicated by Nikki Haley’s speech given at the national convention.

In the convention, he said, “America is racist, to say that it has become fashionable in the Democratic Party.” that’s a lie. America is not a racist country. This is my personal experience. I am the proud daughter of Indian expatriates … My father used to wear a turban. My mother wore a sari. I was a brown girl among black and white people. “

“We faced discrimination and difficulties. But my parents never complained and hated me. My mother built a successful business. My father taught at Black College for 30 years and the people of South Carolina made me the first minority and female governor. “

Nikki Haley through her personal experiences has particularly raised the Indian American identity.
