Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley said on Tuesday that she thinks it would be in the best interest of the country and the Democratic Party if President Biden resigned.

In an interview on the “Hugh Hewitt Show,” Haley said she agreed with the host, who wrote an op-ed published Tuesday in Fox News calling on Biden to resign.

“Yes, I do,” Haley said when asked whether she believes Biden should resign. “And I think the Democrat Party knows that. And I think that it is not just in the best interest of their party. It’s in the best interest of the country.”

Haley continued, taking shots at both former President Trump and Biden, who are the respective frontrunners for the 2024 Republican and Democratic nominations, respectively.

“What I will tell you, and I have said this from the very beginning, the party that gets rid of their 80-year old candidate is the party that will win. We cannot have a country in disarray in a world on fire and have two presidential candidates in their 80s when we need someone who’s going to put eight years into making sure that we are disciplined, focused on getting our economy, the border, preventing war, and getting our country back on track,” Haley said.

The remarks come after special counsel Robert Hur released a report looking into Biden’s handling of classified documents that said Biden could not remember the years he served as vice president and called him “elderly,” touching on the president’s biggest political vulnerability heading into the 2024 election.

While Democratic senators who have spent time with Biden recently say that he remains sharp mentally and that they don’t notice any diminution of cognitive abilities, some still worry about the damage that the narrative could do to his reelection bid.
