Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley said this week that the criminal trials against former President Donald Trump should happen before the upcoming elections.

Haley, who has lost to the former president in every primary and caucus event thus far, made the remarks during a CNN interview with Dana Bash on Friday when asked about U.S. Supreme Court saying this week that they will hear Trump’s appeal in the federal election case that he faces in Washington, D.C., where he claims he should immune from prosecution because of actions taken when he was president.

“This means that there’s a very good chance that the trial, if it does go forward, won’t happen until either right before or even during and maybe even after the election,” Bash said.

“Should the Supreme Court expedite this?” Bash asked.

“Well, I think the Supreme Court should hear it because we do want to look at immunity. No president should ever be above the law. And, you know, we’ve never really had to clarify this before, and I think it’s important for the Supreme Court to clarify,” Haley responded. “Would we like to see things go faster? Of course, we would. But do you think the judges and the lawyers are going to have that happen? I don’t know, I mean, it could be that it takes a while, but I’m just glad that they’re hearing it. I think that’s important.”

Bash followed up by asking Haley if it was important for voters to know “how this trial and others wrap up before they go to the polls.”


“Of course, of course,” Haley responded. “I mean they’re- you know, you want people to have as much information about the people they’re deciding will be president before they go to the polls. You know, that’s the part that, you know, we all should hope to have. I don’t know that we’ll have that clarity, but I think that that’s something that voters would want.”
