Nikki Haley advocates for ‘mental competency tests’ for politicians over 75.

Former Governor Nikki Haley Calls for Mental Competency ​Tests for Politicians Over 75

In a recent interview on CBS News’s “Face The Nation,” former ⁤South Carolina Republican Governor Nikki Haley expressed her belief‍ that politicians should undergo ⁢mental competency⁢ tests once‍ they reach the age‍ of 75. Haley, who is currently running for the GOP presidential nomination, emphasized the importance of ensuring that those in power are fit to serve the public.

Haley argued, “We need to‍ have mental competency tests ⁣for anyone over the age of 75. ⁢And I don’t say that to be disrespectful. ‌I don’t care if you do it⁤ for 50 and older. What‍ I’m saying⁣ is, these are people in D.C. ‌that are⁤ making decisions on our⁣ national⁣ security.”

She further ⁤highlighted the potential consequences of having leaders who⁢ may​ not be at their best mentally, stating, “They’re deciding the future of our kids’ economy. We need to know they’re at the top of their game.⁢ When you go and⁣ look at Biden and you- and you⁣ ask ​him what country he was in the week before,⁢ and‌ he can’t ‌say it.‍ When you⁣ go and ask ⁣him how many grandchildren he has and he doesn’t know. When⁢ you go and see him falling asleep​ with leaders. That’s concerning.”

Haley believes that it is time for a new generation of leaders to step forward, both in the Republican Party and across the board. She acknowledged the recent electoral challenges faced by Republicans and stressed the need for a fresh approach. “Republicans⁤ have lost the last seven out of eight popular votes ‍for president,” she said. “That’s nothing to be proud of. We should want to win the ‍majority of Americans. We’ve got ‌to start going with a new generation so that we can do ⁤that.⁣ We have to leave all of‍ these older diplomats and Democrats-⁤ and Democrats and Republicans behind. And⁣ let’s start dealing with new solutions that the ​American people can feel like governments working for them again.”
