As the 2024 presidential race gains momentum, Nikki Haley, a potential contender for the presidency, has urged the Biden administration to shift its focus from gender and equity issues to stocking the nation’s ammunition demand. Here’s the full story.
Low on Ammo
Haley’s call came after President Biden admitted during a CNN interview that the U.S. stockpile of ammunition is running low, raising concerns about the country’s preparedness in the face of global conflicts.
The Wartime Mode
During the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Summit, Haley stressed the necessity of transitioning into “wartime mode,” which would entail accelerating ammunition production, maintaining well-stocked reserves, and streamlining bureaucratic processes within the Department of Defense.
Focus on the Military
She said, “’We need to quit having them play favorites with certain companies, we’ve got to start modernizing our military, and they’ve got to quit with all the chaos, like the gender pronoun classes.”
Haley’s criticism was supported by Senator Joni Ernst, who asserted that the ammunition shortage is a direct consequence of the administration’s misplaced focus on social issues instead of prioritizing a strong military.
To Create a Lethal Fighting Force
Both Haley and Ernst underscored the significance of building up munitions and ensuring troops are adequately trained to create the most lethal fighting force possible.
The White House Responded
Following President Biden’s comments, a White House official issued a statement asserting that the U.S. is not running out of ammunition itself, and everything sent to Ukraine exceeds the reserves required for contingencies or conflicts.
The Questioning of Defence
However, the acknowledgment of Ukraine’s ammunition shortages raises concerns about the country’s ability to defend itself amid the ongoing conflict with Russia.
The NATO Invitation
Nikki Haley urged for Ukraine’s invitation to NATO, arguing that the country has demonstrated its military capabilities and dedication to defending Europe.
A Powerful Signal
She asserted that extending the invitation would not require additional funding or putting U.S. troops on the ground, but would serve as a powerful signal to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
There’s More to This
Haley emphasized that a strong Ukraine would also have implications for Taiwan’s defense, as a victory for Russia could embolden China to consider invading the island.
She stressed the importance of bolstering Taiwan’s defenses promptly to discourage such a scenario.
Social Media Users Shared Their Views
Several social media users expressed their thoughts on the incident.
One Twitter user wrote, “Nikki Haley will not be the Republican nominee based solely on this statement.”
The Failed Ambassador
Another user commented, “Nikki Haley, a failed ambassador of the failed Trump administration, will forever be covered by the stain and stench of traitor Trump.”
