COLUMBIA, S.C. — Former South Carolina Governor and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley appeared on Fox News Monday night to give her views on the situation in Iran. 

This was after President Trump ordered an airstrike that killed Qasem Soleimani, a major general in Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and commander of the Quds Force.

She posted a clip of her interview with the quote "The only ones mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and Democrat Presidential candidates."
