“Blank Expression”: Vivek Ramaswamy Grills Nikki Haley On Ukraine

Date:

The Alabama Republican presidential debate featured a narrowed field, including Ron DeSantis, Nikki Haley, Chris Christie, and Vivek Ramaswamy. Hosted by NewsNation and moderated by Megyn Kelly, Elizabeth Vargas, and Eliana Johnson, the event became notable when entrepreneur Ramaswamy challenged Haley on her knowledge of Ukraine.

In a discussion about the conflict with Russia, Ramaswamy asked Haley to name three provinces in eastern Ukraine. Despite being a former US ambassador to the United Nations, Haley struggled to name even one province, maintaining an impassive expression as the camera focused on her.

During the exchange, Vivek Ramaswamy emphasized the difference between foreign policy experience and foreign policy wisdom, asserting that they are not the same. He drew a parallel between Joe Biden and Nikki Haley, highlighting their inability to name three provinces in eastern Ukraine they wanted to send troops to.

Later, the entrepreneur wrote on X, “I made a bet that @NikkiHaley couldn’t even name just three regions of eastern Ukraine that she wants to send America’s sons & daughters to die fighting for. Turns out, I was right.” 

“Ended her career,” one user commented under Ramaswamy’s post. 

Although Nikki Haley eventually named the provinces as “Donetsk, Luhansk, and Crimea” (recognizing Crimea’s annexation by Russia in 2014), Ramaswamy strongly criticized her, accusing her of fascism and questioning her intelligence. When given the chance to respond, Haley declined, stating, “It’s not worth my time to respond to him.”

In defense of Haley, Republican Chris Christie, a longtime acquaintance, rebuked Ramaswamy for insulting her intelligence, emphasizing that she is a smart and accomplished woman. Christie directly addressed Ramaswamy, urging him to stop the insults.
