Haley is saying that justice and accountability before the law are "bad for America"

Granting a criminal former president what amounts to retroactive immunity would neither be good for our country nor bring the American people together.

The only thing that will bring Americans together is to embrace the highest ideals which make America truly great --

Equal justice before the law;

All human beings have equal rights regardless of race, religion, and gender;

Government of, by, and for the people;

Voting rights unimpeded by partisan suppression or intimidation;

Constitutional rule of law, not the dictates of one person or faction.

The person whom Nikki Haley declares she would pardon is not only the antithesis of those highest ideals; he is a grave threat to them.

To grant him unequal and preferential treatment above the law is a rejection of the highest ideals which are the meaning and the soul of America -- what we all need to embace if we are to unite in building a better future.
