"It was a great day for America, and a bad day for Joe Biden," Haley told The Citadel Republican Society's Patriot Dinner, Mediaite reported. "And I bet he'll have another bad day, come next November."
"But we can't get arrogant," she stated. "We've gotta stay humble, hunker down, and focus on what matters."
Haley has had some great moments with former President Donald Trump as one of the most senior women in his Administration, yet she unwound some of that goodwill when she denounced Trump's push to contest the results of the presidential election and the events of Jan. 6.
"There's no crying in politics," Haley continued, seemingly doubling back to her Trump critique. "There's just hard work."
Winning in 2024 will need more than merely pointing out Biden's failures, she summed.
"We can't just bash the president, his party, and all the problems they've created," Haley stated. "We have to offer solutions that will lift up all Americans. We have to prove that we can make America strong and proud again. I know we can do it because our message is the right message."
"America is retreating – and our enemies are rushing into the gap. We have a total lack of courage and commitment from our commander-in-chief," she will say in the speech. "Joe Biden isn't leading from behind. Joe Biden is sleeping from behind. This year has been one embarrassment after another."
The speech was supposed to be delivered at a fundraising dinner for The Citadel Republican Society, where the former South Carolina Governor will become the first woman to get the influential GOP group's Nathan Hale Patriot Award – a key vote of confidence in the presidential primary state.
