Former U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley was critical of China at the gala dinner of the Republican Jewish Coalition.
Haley’s criticisms were spoken loud and clear with Chinese ambassador Qin Gang in the audience.
“China is our number-one national security threat,” Haley said, referring to the threat of China invading Taiwan.

Haley criticized the U.S. military for focusing on transgender pronouns while China armed itself. The former U.S. ambassador also criticized the Chinese Communist Power as a continually rising threat to the U.S. and global security.
“Qin Gang arrived with an entourage of aides, who were credentialed and who mingled with other guests. It was not clear if he was still in the room at the moment that Haley criticized China and its global ambitions,” reported Breitbart.
“Haley was the first political speaker at the annual event, which brings together leading Republican figures and conservative Jewish activists and donors. Presidential hopefuls — including Haley — addressed the conference, as did former President Donald Trump, a frequent guest in past years who spoke via live stream from Mar-a-Lago,” reported Breitbart. “Incoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also addressed the conference via video link.”
The keynote address was given by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has many supporters within the organization, most of whom live in Florida.
Additionally, Haley told the audience that the lackluster midterm election results were not the fault of “one man” – referring to Trump — but rather a party-wide failure.
Regarding her own presidential ambitions, Haley said: “Now that the midterms are over, I’ll look at it in a serious way.”
