Nikki Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., resigned from the Boeing board in solidarity with taxpayers and millions of companies across the United States, amid the crisis caused by the CCP Virus.
“While I know cash is tight, that is equally true for numerous other industries and for millions of small businesses,” Haley said in a letter to the Boeing board while stating that she could not ask for priority for this company, according to Market Watch.
“I cannot support a move to lean on the federal government for a stimulus or bailout that prioritizes our company over others and relies on taxpayers to guarantee our financial position” Haley added.
In her letter, filed March 19, she also argued, “I cannot support it in good faith,” referring to the funding request for Boeing.
The large aircraft manufacturer estimated its cash needs at $60 billion and mentioned U.S. President Donald Trump’s stated intention to help, according to CNBC.
Various U.S. industry sectors are asking the government for nearly $1 billion in aid because of the effects on the economy of the pandemic caused by the CCP Virus.
Nikki Haley, in addition to serving her country as a former U.N. ambassador, served as governor of South Carolina.
She is an American who is proud of her country, attentive to help from various perspectives, and confident in her nation’s ability to overcome the tests.
“We have come out stronger after every test,” she recalled in one of her speeches in October.
She also joined in the criticism that has been leveled at the Chinese regime for its concealment and negligence during the outbreak of the CCP Virus originating in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China.
“China is now trying to create a narrative [that is intended to be] an example of how to handle this crisis when in fact its early actions led to the virus spreading around the globe,” the 48-year-old former ambassador said.
