While interviewing GOP presidential hopeful Nikki Haley at an event on Friday, Tucker Carlson pressed the candidate about issues such as the 2020 presidential election and climate change.
Haley indicated that she believes there were "irregularities" during the 2020 presidential election but does not believe the issues altered the results of the election — she said she thinks Joe Biden ultimately won the contest. Haley also said that election integrity is an issue that needs to be addressed.
When Carlson asked Haley if she believes climate change is caused by human actions, she said that she believes "climate change is real." Carlson pressed the question again, but Haley indicated she was not certain. "Honestly, I don't know how much is being changed or not, as much as I know that putting electric vehicles on the road is not the answer to what you're doing," she said. She also said the U.S. should be energy independent.
Haley indicated that as president, she would veto any spending measure that does not return to pre-COVID levels of spending.
Haley previously served as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations during a portion of President Donald Trump's White House tenure. Prior to that, she had served as governor of South Carolina.
Polls indicate that former President Donald Trump has a massive lead over the rest of the GOP presidential primary field, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis trailing in a distant second place. Trump was not one of the candidates who participated in the forum on Friday.
