Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley claimed during a debate that she never said the government should require social media users to be identified by name.

However, this claim was found to be false. In a previous event, she stated that every person on social media should be verified by their name, citing national security concerns and the need for civility.

Fellow candidate Vivek Ramaswamy challenged her during the debate, and Governor Ron DeSantis also disputed her claim, referencing her previous statement. (Trending: Democrat Accused Of Blocking Release of Jeffrey Epstein Flight Logs)

“I will always fight for freedom of speech for Americans; we do not need freedom of speech for Russians and Iranians and Hamas,” Haley said.

“We need social media companies to go back and fight back on all of these bots that are happening, that’s what I said,” she added when Ramaswamy cut in.

“As a mom, do I think that social media would be more civil if we went and had people’s names next to that? Yes, I do think that,” she said.

“I never said the government should go and require anyone’s names.”

“That’s false,” said Ramaswamy.

“She said, ‘One of the first things I’m going to do: all social medias, I want your names,’” DeSantis said, telling Haley to “roll the tape.”

The discrepancy highlights a contradiction in Haley’s stance on social media regulation and user identification.
