Nikki Haley, a Republican presidential candidate, expressed her view that all of former President Donald Trump’s legal cases should be resolved before the upcoming presidential election.

In an interview with NBC News’ “Meet the Press” moderator Kristen Welker in Falls Church, Virginia, where primary ballots were set to be cast, Haley emphasized the need to address these legal matters before November.

Haley’s comments came a day after the Supreme Court agreed to examine whether Trump could claim presidential immunity in response to criminal charges.

The potential timeline for Trump’s election interference trial could be delayed as the Supreme Court deliberates, and it may take months for a decision to be reached.

The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations believed that a president should adhere to the law and not enjoy complete immunity. She stressed that presidents should not have “free rein to do whatever they want to do,” emphasizing the importance of accountability.

In addition to discussing legal matters, Haley swiped at both Trump and President Joe Biden following Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s announcement that he would step down as the GOP head in the Senate later in the year.

Commending McConnell for recognizing the need for new leadership, she wished for presidential candidates to do the same, reiterating her previous criticisms about the ages of Biden and Trump.

Haley also criticized the two front-runners for handling issues at the southern border, holding both Trump and Biden responsible. She described the dueling visits in Texas by the two leaders as “comical.”

Although Haley has not yet secured a victory in a state primary or caucus, she expressed excitement ahead of Super Tuesday, where 874 Republican delegates were at stake.

When questioned about her confidence in winning a Super Tuesday state, Haley did not directly answer, focusing instead on the importance of voters making their choices in the primary.

Addressing the possibility of Super Tuesday being her “last stand,” Haley emphasized her aim for a “good, competitive showing” and highlighted the importance of providing voters with choices.

Republican voters in 16 Super Tuesday states and American Samoa would determine the GOP presidential nominee, with a candidate needing at least 1,215 delegates to secure the Republican nomination.
