The US presidential candidate has promised to pardon Trump.

Former US permanent representative to the UN and Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley, if elected, promised on CNN to pardon former US President Donald Trump if he is found guilty: “the last thing we need is an 80-year-old president sitting in prison.”

“The last thing we need is an 80-year-old president sitting in prison,” she said when asked about the possibility of a Trump pardon.


At the same time, Haley noted that Trump’s conviction and prison sentence would “further divide the country.” She considered the possibility of a pardon to be “healing” for the country.


Trump faces a total of 91 charges in four criminal cases, which the Republican politician calls an attempt by the Democratic establishment to prevent him from returning to the White House. The most serious articles threaten Trump with 20 years in prison. If the punishment is determined by adding sentences, he could end up behind bars for several centuries. Based on the totality of charges, the politician faces more than 700 years in prison.
