Former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has announced to have formed ‘Stand for America’, a policy advocacy group dedicated to supporting public policies that beef up the country’s economy, culture, and national security.
The announcement by Haley, who was the first ever Indian American to have a cabinet ranking position in any presidential administration, has come months after she stepped down from the high-profile position of the U.S. Ambassador to UN in the Trump Administration.
Announcing the launch of ‘Stand for America’ advocacy group on Monday, Haley said that it seeks to engage the Americans in support of those policies because an informed and active citizenry is the best way to promote country’s freedom and values.
“America’s greatness comes from our freedom and our values and they must be protected for future generations,” she said.
Haley, the former two-term Governor of South Carolina is extensively popular not only in her Republican party but also is highly admired by her opponents.
Haley said that she got to see the firsthand experiences of the challenges the U.S. has to go through around the globe.
“As U.S. Ambassador to the UN, I was able to see firsthand the challenges we face around the globe. Iranian-backed radical Islamic terrorism threatens the lives of innocent Americans. Communist China is spreading its influence throughout the world and engaging in unfair and illegal trade practices,” she said.
