Another Trump-ite takes it on the lamb…..this time it is another foreign policy person…Nikki Haley, UN ambassador…..she has tended her resignation…..
A surprise move in the Trump administration: Nikki Haley has resigned as ambassador to the UN, reports Axios. The reason why the former governor of South Carolina decided to step down wasn’t immediately clear. The AP confirms the development, reporting that she will meet with Trump shortly. The New York Times has some quick background, noting that Haley’s appointment to the post had been seen as an “olive branch” given her frequent criticism of Trump during the 2016 campaign. More recently, she wrote an op-ed saying that when she disagreed with Trump’s decisions, she never hesitated to confront him about it. The piece was her response to the anonymous author of an op-ed who criticized the White House from within.
I never thought she had the foreign policy chops to be the ambassador to the UN….she proved to be a true Neocon stooge in her words at the institution….
But could it be a news report that came out today?
From South Carolina’s The State…….
A Washington, D.C., watchdog group wants a federal investigation into U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley’s use of private planes owned by S.C. businessmen.
The group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, says Haley undervalued the flights by tens of thousands of dollars on her annual financial disclosure form required of federal officials.
The ethics group says the flights create the impression of impermissible gifts to a public official. However, Haley said on her disclosure the men are all personal friends and, thus, exempt from federal rules about accepting flights on private planes.
This also may be her best time to get away from Trump and his hateful attitudes….she is looking for a position bigger than the ambassador to the UN…..
It will be interesting to see who will get the next nod as ambassador to the UN.
