Nikki Haley: "America Is Not A Racist Country," "That Is A Lie"


Former South Carolina governor and U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spoke Monday at the Republican National Convention.

"Of course we know that every single Black life is valuable," Haley said. "In much of the Democratic Party, it’s now fashionable to say that America is racist. That is a lie. America is not a racist country."

"This is personal for me. I am the proud daughter of Indian immigrants. They came to America and settled in a small southern town. My father wore a turban. My mother wore a sari. I was a brown girl in a Black and white world."

"America is a story that’s a work in progress. Now is the time to build on that progress, and make America even freer, fairer, and better for everyone. That’s why it’s tragic to see so much of the Democratic Party turn a blind eye toward riots and rage."

"Joe Biden and the Democrats are still blaming America first. Donald Trump has always put America first and he has earned four more years as president," Haley said.

"This President has a record of strength and success. The former Vice President has a record of weakness and failure. Joe Biden is good for Iran and ISIS … great for Communist China ... and he’s a godsend to everyone who wants America to apologize, abstain, and abandon our values," she said. "Obama and Biden let North Korea threaten America. President Trump rejected that weakness, and we passed the toughest sanctions on North Korea in history."
