Potential presidential candidate and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said that if she becomes president, "the number one thing" she will do is stop giving foreign aid to enemies.
Haley said on Fox News show Sunday Morning Futures:
Well, you know, one of the main things I did at the United Nations that I think is so important is I did a book that focused on the 193 companies, the percentage of time they voted with us and how much foreign aid we give them.
Then she dropped the bomb about foreign aid.
"The number one thing I would do is stop giving foreign aid to our enemies," Haley said.
Haley added, "We give $46 billion in foreign aid. You’re basically talking about a billion dollars going to Iraq, who’s basically dealing with the Iranians who are saying death to America. You’re giving $2 billion to Pakistan, who are harboring terrorists trying to kill our soldiers. You’re giving half a billion dollars to Zimbabwe, the most anti-American African country there is."
Then Haley addressed the issue of China.
"You look at China," she said. "We’re giving China money for the environment. Are you kidding? We shouldn’t be giving them a single penny.
"We give to Belarus, who’s holding hands with Russia in this war against Ukraine," Haley reminded listeners. "And then you’ve got communist Cuba. We’re giving them money, and we have designated them a state sponsor of terrorism. When I am president, we will no longer give foreign aid to our enemies. We will stop that. We’ll start being smart and start being strong again."
