Nikki Haley Says Texas Can Secede From US if it Wants But ‘Isn’t Going To’

Texas has the right to secede from the U.S. if its citizens decide to do so, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley argued on Wednesday — a controversial view that contradicts centuries of established history and precedent. Similar secession efforts infamously led to the Civil War.

But “if Texas decides they want to do that, they can do that,” Haley said in an interview with the radio show “The Breakfast Club.”

“If that whole state says, ‘We don’t want to be part of America anymore,’ I mean, that’s their decision to make,” Haley said, though she also noted, “Let’s talk about what’s reality. Texas isn’t going to secede.”

Asked if she still believes that states generally have the right to secede, a sentiment she expressed on camera during her initial run for governor of South Carolina, Haley said that “states have the right to make the decisions that their people want to make.”

“I believe in state’s rights, I believe that everything should be as close to the people to decide,” she said.
