After another loss, this time in her home state, Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley told supporters in Troy, Michigan, that “the world is on fire—literally” in reference to current conflicts in Ukraine and the Middle East, as well as North Korean aggression. Defying calls from South Carolina Republicans to exit the race, Ms. Haley traveled on Sunday to Michigan—which holds its primary on Tuesday—to continue her campaign for the Republican presidential nod.

She told supporters in Michigan that her campaign “is about preventing war,” and criticized her competitor and former President Donald Trump’s recent comments to the effect that he would “encourage” Russia to do what it wanted with European countries that do not pay their way in NATO. Ms. Haley also reiterated her position on President Trump’s and President Joe Biden’s age as factors speaking against their suitability as presidential candidates.
