Nikki Haley’s New ‘Stand for America’ Advocacy Group Claims China Is Greatest Threat to America

Feb. 27, 2019 (EIRNS)—Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, whose outsized political ambitions haven’t diminished since she left the UN, has set up an advocacy group, Stand for America (SFA), which describes China as the biggest foreign threat to America. Note, however, that despite her railings against Beijing, Haley was just hired to be on the board of Boeing Corp., one of whose important customers is China!

SFA’s website explains that this “donor-funded” organization will focus on issues such as border security and public safety; term limits; socialism; and American culture.

Its international component, however, focuses on allegedly serious “international dangers,” asserting that China, Russia and Iran are chief among them. China, it states, is

“a communist dictatorship that is perhaps the world’s single worst human rights violator, taking surveillance and imprisonment of its citizens to truly Orwellian levels.”

After retailing the litany of China’s supposed economic and currency crimes, SFA warns that “we must view China as a rival—and often a dishonest one—not just another trading partner who we can easily cooperate with.”

Haley’s anti-China rhetoric stands in stark contrast to President Donald Trump’s tweets issued on the same day, referring to the ongoing trade talks between the two countries. In his tweets, he said:

“As a result of these ... very productive talks, I will be delaying the U.S. increase in tariffs now scheduled for March 1. Assuming both sides make additional progress, we will be planning a Summit for President Xi and myself, at Mar-a-Lago, to conclude an agreement. A very good weekend for U.S. & China!”
