In talking about the presidential election earlier in the April of 2021 Haley had said If Trump bids for the 2024 presidential nomination she would not run against him.

Initially, Halye’s decision to run for the office did not seem of having an impact on Trump at all. He said that he was informed about it by Haley herself. He responded by asking her to follow her heart and that if she want to she should definitely run for the position in the election.
Recently Trump seems to have adopted a patronizing approach toward Nikki Haley. Trump wrote that Nikki has to follow her heart, not her honor. She should definitely run but also attached a video of Haley assuring she would challenge him in the presidential election.
