    Two top aides to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley resigned this week. Haley confirmed late Wednesday that her spokesman, Jonathan Wachtel, and her chief of staff, Steven Groves, were both departing their posts due to family concerns. “Thanks for your concern. Both Jonathan & Steve have recently encountered family concerns. They will always be a part of the team & dear friends,” Haley tweeted Wednesday night in response to The New York Times’ Maggie Haberman and an assignment editor from an NBC affiliate in Phoenix, Ariz. A State Department official also told Fox News that Wachtel resigned...

    When, in November 2016, Nikki Haley was nominated U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Professor Charles Tiefer of the University of Baltimore reacted with outrage. "No one in the United Nations," Tiefer said, "will think that Haley is someone to talk to who will be either knowledgeable or close to the president." Tiefer must feel a bit stupid right now.

    North Korea’s launch of a second intercontinental ballistic missile Friday—a missile some believe has the potential to reach U.S. cities—led to speculation that the U.S. would go to the U.N. to seek an emergency session and a resolution to put more pressure on the rogue state. CBS News reported Saturday that the U.S. was seeking an emergency session on Monday, but Haley shot down such reporting as “mistaken.” “There is no point in having an emergency session if it produces nothing of consequence,” Haley said, before noting that North Korea is already the target of a number of Security Council...

    Nikki Haley warns China on trade with North Korea if it wants U.S. trade UNITED NATIONS (AP) — U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley warned China on Wednesday that it risks its massive trade with the United States if its business with North Korea violates U.N. sanctions. In a hard-hitting speech at an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council following Pyongyang's successful launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile, she said that "the world has become a more dangerous place" and China has a key role in promoting peace and "preventing a catastrophe."

    Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has requested an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council after North Korea tested an intercontinental ballistic missile. The closed-door meeting of the 15-member council likely would be held Wednesday, according to reports. Haley sarcastically thanked North Korea in a tweet on Tuesday for filling up her Fourth of July with meetings. Spending my 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea— Nikki Haley (@nikkihaley) July 4, 2017

    The Syrian army has denied using chlorine gas against rebels in battles east of Damascus Beirut, July 1 (Reuters)-A Syrian rebel group accused the Syrian army of using chlorine gas against its fighters on Saturday in battles east of Damascus-an accusation the military swiftly denied as a fabrication. The Faliq al-Rahman group said more than 30 people suffered suffocation as a result of the attack in Ain Tarma in the Eastern Ghouta region, which government forces have been battling to take back from insurgents......

    Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the United Nations, has told Congress that the US should decide on its role in Syria for the time when ISIS is driven out, “because a healthy Syria is not with Assad.” “You can’t have Assad in power with the healthy Syria,” said Nikki Haley when testifying at the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday. “A post-ISIS Syria doesn’t mean all goes back to where it should be happy and good again,” she added. The Trump administration has so far stated that its goal in Syria is to defeat ISIS, and that it is...

    Several military officials were reportedly caught off guard by a White House statement Monday night that indicated Syria was engaged in "potential preparations" for a new chemical attack, The New York Times reported.... ...The reported lack of communication between military channels also appeared to be corroborated by a BuzzFeed News report that cited five defense officials who said they did not know of the details regarding a potential chemical attack, and were not aware of the White House's plans to release a statement. Shortly after the White House statement was released, Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations,...

    Signs were gathering in Washington and the Middle East Tuesday, June 26 that the Trump Administration was preparing a substantial military operation against the Syrian army and Bashar Assad's allies, such as the foreign pro-Iranian Shiite militias and Hizbullah. Some US military sources suggested than an American preemptive strike was in store in the coming hours to prevent Assad's army from again resorting to chemical warfare against his people. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Monday night... The US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley then further stoked the tensions...... Haley's tweet ended with the cliffhanger: "Stay tuned...

    The US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley declared on Twitter that any chemical weapons attack by Bashar Assad's Syrian government on his own citizens "will be blamed on Assad but also on Russia and Iran who support him killing his own people." Haley's tweet ended with the words: "Stay tuned for more tomorrow." It followed a White House warning that Assad would pay a heavy price if he again resorted to chemical weapons against his own people. The US military believes the preparations are similar to those made before the April 4 chemical weapons attack......

    The Trump administration may decide to follow the example of George W. Bush and wash its hands of the UN’s Human Rights Council. Reuters reports this morning that the US may announce as soon as tomorrow that it will withdraw from the panel unless the UN commits to serious reform, especially in its obsession with Israel at the expense of real human-rights abuses: The United States is expected to signal on Tuesday that it might withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council unless reforms are ushered in including the removal of what it sees as an “anti-Israel bias”,...

    UNITED NATIONS — President Trump, who recently had Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin and Kid Rock over for a White House dinner, is planning to host 14 diplomats from around the world for lunch on Monday. The diplomats are members of the powerful United Nations Security Council, an eclectic mix of America’s friends and rivals, and plenty of skeptics. Their guide to the White House is Mr. Trump’s outspoken envoy, Nikki R. Haley. Halibut is on the menu, and a cheese soufflé, which one Council diplomat hoped would not be the most substantial part of the White House visit. As of...

    Ambassador Haley has astutely challenged the United Nations Security Council to deal honestly with the most dangerous state in the Middle East – Iran – and to leave Israel alone for once Ambassador Nikki Haley, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, chaired the UN Security Council’s latest perennial debate on the situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question, on April 20th. I have attended many of these sessions in the past, and they have always degenerated quickly into the usual pattern of hatefests against Israel. Not this time, however.

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley gave a speech today in which she sharply criticized Russia, saying it was “long past time” for them to stop covering for the Assad regime in Syria. “To my colleagues from Russia, you are isolating yourselves from the international community every time one of Assad’s planes drop another barrel bomb on civilians and every time Assad tries to starve another community to death,” Haley said. “People, not just in the West but across the Middle East and the world are speaking out against Assad’s brutality,” she said. She continued, “It is long...

    The drums of war are continuing to beat with UN Ambassador Nikki Haley coming out and basically saying the Trump administration is against Syrian president Assad staying in power. Haley said, “regime change is something that we think is going to happen.” “There’s not any sort of option where a political solution is going to happen with Assad at the head of the regime,” Haley said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union” set to air Sunday. “If you look at his actions, if you look at the situation, it’s going to be hard to see a government...

    U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley forced Bolivia to "defend the atrocities of the Syrian regime" in "full public view" on Friday, after the country's ambassador requested a closed session to discuss President Trump's strikes in Syria. Trump ordered the missile strikes in response to a chemical weapons attack by Syrian President Bashar Assad Tuesday which killed dozens in northern Syria. Haley revealed the Bolivian ambassador's request for a private emergency session of the U.N. Security Council in a written statement Friday morning. She countered: "The United States, as president of the Council this month, decided the session would...

    Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, warned today that the U.S. is "prepared to do more" in Syria, one day after American warships fired a barrage of cruise missiles at a Syrian government air base. "The United States took a very measured step last night. We are prepared to do more, but we hope that will not be necessary," Haley said Friday during a special open session of the U.N. Security Council devoted to discussing Syria. The United States launched the direct assault against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime in response to a chemical weapons attack earlier this...

    The new sheriff at the United Nations is stylish in heels but not so stylish in attitude. The delegate lounges haven't been the same since Nikki Haley arrived as the United States ambassador almost three months ago. She's blunt without being brash, and neither shy about giving the Russians the cold shoulder nor making it clear that the United States stands with Israel, not with the wolves that look for opportunities to mock, belittle and scorn the Jewish state. The previous administration seemed comfortable cozying up to the enemies of Israel and timidly (some might say "cowardly") abstained from a...

    Foreign Aid: Something wonderful is happening at the United Nations, and her name is Nikki — as in former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley. For the first time in years, the U.S.' new ambassador to the U.N. is an unapologetic champion of her own country's interests within the global body. Reform winds are blowing. Haley, like John Bolton (Bush II administration) and Jeanne Kirkpatrick (Reagan) before her, is showing the world that she's not content to be a bland, politically correct American figurehead at the U.N. She's making a big difference. Of course, we knew she would be a good...
