SOUNDBITE: (English) Thomas Beaumont, Associated Press:++COVERED++"What's interesting about this cycle is given the fact that the former president casts such a shadow over the 2024 election,  at this point, it hasn't discouraged these would be Republican presidential candidates from making the early rounds, especially this summer. Among these Republicans, that we don't necessarily know exactly what they're going to do is former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley. So we don't know exactly what she's going to do but what she has said is that if President Trump runs for president again, that she's not going to run. So in light of all of the testimony coming out of Washington, I thought it would be noteworthy to ask her whether or not that's still true, or whether or not she's reconsidering in light of the January 6 testimony, and I had a chance to ask her that yesterday. And here's how she responded:"POOLARCHIVE: Des Moines, Iowa - 30 January 20167. Wide of Trump addressing a crowd POOLARCHIVE: Washington - 6 January 20218.

I will fight for this country until my last breath.ASSOCIATED PRESSWashington - 1 July 202216. SOUNDBITE: (English) Thomas Beaumont, Associated Press: ++PARTIALLY COVERED++"I've talked to a few operatives to some of these would be Republican presidential candidates, and they note and it bears out in some polls, that the former president's popularity has been declining among Republicans, you know, since before all of this explosive testimony."ASSOCIATED PRESSDes Moines, Iowa - 30 June 202217.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Cassidy Hutchinson, Former Trump White House aide: "I was in the vicinity of a conversation where I overheard the President say something to the effect of, you know, I don't effing care if they have weapons. They're not here to hurt me take the effing mags away. Let my people and they can march to the Capitol from here. Let the people in."ASSOCIATED PRESSWashington - 1 July 202220. SOUNDBITE: (English) Thomas Beaumont, Associated Press:"So this testimony that's coming out of Washington, a lot of the people that I talked to, don't believe it, they're skeptical about it. They don't trust it, but their reasons for saying that Trump may not be the candidate that they back is that they wonder if he can still win."++ENDS ON SOUNDBITE++STORYLINE:Stunning new revelations about former President Donald Trump’s fight to overturn the 2020 election have exposed growing political vulnerabilities just as he eyes another presidential bid. A former White House aide this week described Trump as an unhinged leader with no regard for the safety of elected officials in either party as he clung to power on Jan. 6, 2021. The testimony from the congressional panel investigating the Capitol attack provided a roadmap for prosecutors to potentially charge Trump with a crime, some legal experts say.Republican voters - and Trump's would-be rivals in the 2024 presidential race - took notice.Here in Iowa, the state expected to host the first presidential nominating contest in roughly 18 months, several voters signaled Thursday that they were open to another presidential candidate even if Trump were to run again. At the same time, some conservative media outlets issued scathing rebukes of the former president. Aides for multiple GOP presidential prospects also indicated, publicly and privately, that they felt increasingly emboldened to challenge Trump in 2024 following the explosive new testimony.Nikki Haley, Trump's ambassador to the United Nations, drew roughly 350 conservative activists to a congressional fundraising barbecue on Thursday in Sioux County, where Trump won 82% of the vote in 2020.And there was ample evidence of Trump fatigue. Interviews with a dozen attendees revealed strong interest in a 2024 alternative, even if Trump is on the ballot.---Production: Mike Pesoli/Derek Karikari===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
