Former U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley has walked back her suggestion that Texas could secede from the United States if it wanted to amid its standoff with the federal government over its efforts to secure its border with Mexico.

Speaking with CNN’s Dana Bash on “State of the Union,” she said that no state has the right to secede according to the U.S. Constitution.

Her response came in response to Bash’s question, in which she asked, “You want to be president of the United States. Do you think that any state has a right to secede?”

Haley’s response goes, “No. According to the Constitution, they can’t. What I do think they have the right to do is have the power to protect themselves and do all that. Texas has talked about seceding for a long time. The Constitution doesn’t allow for that. But what I will say is, where’s that coming from? That’s coming from the fact that people don’t think that government is listening to them.”

Haley’s remarks are a total reversal of her statement during an interview with Charlamagne Tha God on “The Breakfast Club” on Jan. 31, in which she said the state of Texas has the right to decide that it does not want to be a part of the U.S. anymore.

“If that whole state says, ‘We don’t want to be part of America anymore,’ I mean, that’s their decision to make,” she stated.

She, however, added later that she does not think Texas is going to make the decision to secede.

This would not be the first time Haley would hit a total turnaround on a remark. On Dec. 28, she failed to say that slavery was a cause of the Civil War when she was asked about it during a town hall event in New Hampshire. Her response had been about the role of government, capitalism and individual freedom, causing the questioner to tell her, “In the year 2023, it’s astonishing to me that you answer that question without mentioning the word ‘slavery.’”

However, after the controversy that followed, she later said, “Of course, the Civil War was about slavery.”
