  • Trump Team Flips Finger (Figuratively) to United Nations

    “To those who are confused as to where the United States stands, let me be clear: As is their right under our Constitution, the American people have spoken. They have chosen a new president, and he has chosen a new ambassador to the United Nations…The United States opposes this (UN) resolution (condemning the U.S. embargo of Cuba) today in continued solidarity with the Cuban people and in the hope that they will one day be free to choose their own destiny. This assembly (the UN) does not have the power to end the U.S. embargo. It is based in U.S....

    The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has been evacuated from a U.N. camp for displaced people in South Sudan because of a volatile demonstration against President Salva Kiir. An aid worker at the camp says U.N. security guards fired tear gas to disperse the crowd of more than 100 people shortly after Haley left. The aid worker spoke on condition of anonymity out of safety fears.

    President Trump’s tough talk regarding the North Korean nuclear threat in his U.N. speech – including referring to dictator Kim Jong Un as “rocket man” and threatening to “totally destroy” the communist nation – has rattled Trump’s critics in establishment media and the Democratic Party, but some in the international community appreciated his “blunt, honest approach,” according to U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. Further, along with Kim’s continued defiance – launching missiles over Japan and developing miniaturized hydrogen bombs – the criticism comes amid new reports of the dictator’s brutality, including his execution of opponents and of people who annoy him...
  • Nikki Haley to North Korea: 'No problem' letting Mattis deal with you

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley warned North Korea on Friday that she is more than willing to let Defense Secretary Jim Mattis deal with the nuclear threat from Pyongyang if sanctions do not work. Haley said recent sanctions have “strangled” North Korea’s “economic situation,” calling the impact “dramatic.” But she said there's only so much the U.N. Security Council can do “when you cut 90 percent of the trade and 30 percent of the oil.” “So having said that, I have no problem kicking it to General Mattis because I think he has plenty of options,” Haley...

    North Korea on Friday called U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley a "political prostitute" and derided her as "crazily swishing her skirt" after she said the rogue regime was "begging for war." The state-run Korean Central News Agency described Haley’s comments to the UN Sunday as a “hysteric fit.” “Nikki should be careful with her tongue though she might be a blind fool,” KCNA said. “The U.S. administration will have to pay a dear price for her tongue-lashing."

    The US envoy to the UN has urged the Security Council to take the "strongest possible measures" against North Korea after its latest nuclear test. "The time has come to exhaust all diplomatic means before it is too late," Nikki Haley told an emergency meeting of the council in New York. She also warned countries which did business with the North that they were aiding their nuclear ambitions. Reports suggest the North is preparing new test missile launches. Ms. Haley said North Korean leader Kim Jong-in had shown through his actions that he was "begging for war"....

    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.

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...

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."

The closed-door meeting of the 15-member council likely would be held Wednesday, according to reports.

    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...

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......

    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. Ambassador Haley, serving as the president of the...
