Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, a potential GOP presidential candidate in 2024, called for “competency tests” for public officials after Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell appeared to freeze during a press conference. Haley argued that anyone over the age of 75 should undergo mental competency tests and that term limits should be implemented. She cited the incident with McConnell as evidence that decision-makers need to function at a basic cognitive level, especially when dealing with national security and policy matters. Haley also criticized the trillions of dollars spent on initiatives like the COVID-19 stimulus bill and highlighted the expansion of welfare programs. She mentioned the use of “earmarks” in Congress and listed several funding projects, such as hotels and horse racing, while 1 in 6 Americans struggle to pay their bills and 60% hold credit card debt. Haley pointed out the failures of the education system and the crisis at the southern border, emphasizing the influx of illegal immigrants and the smuggling of fentanyl. She called for the retrieval of unspent COVID-19 funding and expressed concern about the country’s spending addiction.
