Nikki Haley Quietly Bought $2.4M Island Mansion After Leaving Trump Admin, Joining Boeing Board

There’s nothing like getting rich off politics…

According to a new report, Nikki Haley quietly purchased a waterfront estate on Kiawah Island, South Carolina for $2.4 million after leaving her UN ambassador role and just 5 months after joining the board of Boeing.

The New York Post had this to say about Haley’s million-dollar island mansion:

In a subtle move, Nikki Haley, currently vying for the Republican presidential ticket and trailing former President Donald Trump in recent primary polls, quietly spent $2.4 million for a waterfront estate on Kiawah Island, South Carolina.

The 51-year-old political figure, previously the US ambassador to the United Nations, procured the residence in October 2019, following her exit from public office and five months after joining the board of Boeing.

The Post has reached out to Haley’s reps for comment.

This expansive mansion, jointly purchased with her husband, Michael Haley, finds its place in the exclusive enclave of Kiawah Island.

Originally listed for $3.3 million, Haley and her husband’s adept negotiation skills resulted in a significant reduction in the property’s price at the time.

After leaving the Trump administration in 2018, Nikki Haley’s fortune ballooned from $1 million to $8 million.

Forbes reported on this:

When 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley last served in office as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, her family’s finances were a mess. Her parents owed over $1 million and were in danger of losing their Lexington, South Carolina home. A devoted daughter, Haley had loaned them hundreds of thousands of dollars in the past with her husband. But she could not solve all of her parents’ problems, with less than $100,000 sitting in her bank accounts and $185,000 coming in each year in salary.

Haley stunned Washington by resigning her role in the Trump administration in 2018, less than two years after taking office. A spokesperson for Haley claims that the family financial troubles had “no bearing whatsoever on Ambassador Haley’s decision to leave her position” and points to a section of Haley’s resignation letter in which she expressed support for “rotation in office.” But the same letter also suggested that Haley may have had money-making ventures on her mind: “As a businessman,” she wrote to Donald Trump, “I expect you will appreciate my sense that returning from government to the private sector is not a step down but a step up.”

Indeed. Since then, Haley’s net worth has ballooned from less than $1 million to an estimated $8 million. How did she make so much money in so little time? By following a tried-and-true playbook for politicians looking to cash in on their fame. Speeches to companies like Barclays and organizations such as the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs provided more money in a day than Haley had previously earned in a year. It’s not clear how many talks she gave from 2019 to 2021, but Haley hauled in $2.3 million from just 11 events in 2022.

She wrote two books after leaving the Trump administration. A 2019 memoir sold more than 100,000 copies. A 2022 title provided more than $350,000 in advance payments. Haley also offered consulting services, generating more than $700,000 in fees. Then there were corporate boards. She became a director of Boeing in 2019, then stepped down the next year, collecting over $300,000 in cash and stock. Haley remains on the board of the United Homes Group, which has provided her with more than $250,000, as well as the promise of earning much more as equity grants vest down the road.

What do you think?

Is Nikki Haley a woman you want anywhere near the presidency?

Or is she just another bought and sold politician?

She certainly isn’t like Trump.

I guess Vivek was right.
