  • Nikki Haley hinted to China that ‘unpredictable’ Trump could invade North Korea: Report

    The Washington Examiner ^ | October 17, 2018 | Joel Gehrke
    Ambassador Nikki Haley used the threat of a U.S. invasion of North Korea to secure a new round of sanctions against the regime last year, according to a new report. Harper’s Magazine reported that Haley raised the possibility of a U.S. invasion by telling a Chinese diplomat, “My boss is kind of unpredictable, and I don’t know what he’ll do." Haley recalled making those comments during remarks at a small gathering of people at the Council for National Policy, and as part of her effort to discourage China from vetoing additional oil sanctions on North Korea last September, following the...

    Since this week’s surprise announcement that Nikki Haley would depart by year’s end, everyone wants to know who’ll replace America’s UN ambassador — who was first dismissed, then hated, then feared and eventually appreciated, heck, even loved (at least by some). The answer, obviously, is up to the never-predictable President Trump, so most names bandied about are speculative, with many driven by wishful thinking. So here’s a wish: Christopher Burnham. Never heard of him? You may soon. Sure, there are other worthy candidates; Washington reporters come up with new ones daily. The much-advertised front-runner, former Deputy National Security Adviser Dina...

    Nikki Haley’s resignation earlier this week has set off a horse race inside administration circles to replace her. The early favorite? Dina Powell, former deputy to National Security Advisor H. R. McMaster and currently a top executive at Goldman Sachs. One problem: Powell is deeply unpopular with Donald Trump’s base. “All the right people don’t like her and all the wrong ones do,” a veteran conservative activist close with the White House told me Wednesday. A case in point: Max Boot , the ex-conservative NeverTrumper, endorsed her as having the right stuff on Tuesday night. Breitbart News is running...

    FULL TITLE: Nikki Haley was facing a formal complaint over ethics after series of private jet flights funded by businessmen from her native South Carolina. UN ambassador Nikki Haley, who stunned Washington with her surprise announcement she is resigning her post, was facing an ethics complaint over her acceptance of private travel between South Carolina and Washington, D.C. Haley had disclosed the flights on her government form for 2017. But the issue of improper private jet uses has dogged multiple administration officials, and led to the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Oct. 9, 2018
    A former Republican senator from New Hampshire says Nikki Haley should visit the early-primary state as soon as possible to explore a 2020 challenge against President Trump. “After four years of Donald Trump, America will want a president of sound mind and dignified presidential bearing," former Sen. Gordon Humphrey told the Washington Examiner. Haley announced her resignation as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday. She opposed Trump in 2016, contributing to suspicion about her departure, which will take effect later this year.

    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Tuesday dismissed speculation she is open to challenging President Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2020. "For all of you that are going to ask about 2020, no, I am not running for 2020. I can promise you what I'll be doing is campaigning for this one," Haley told reporters gathered in the Oval Office. "I look forward to supporting the president in the next election." Haley has been touted as a future Republican presidential candidate given her track record as South Carolina governor from 2011 to 2017. She has...

    Speaking Tuesday, she listed what she called achievements that had improved the U.S.’s standing on the world stage, including withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and improving relations with North Korea. She also thanked Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, calling him a “hidden genius,” who along with his wife Ivanka does “a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about.” Both Kushner and Ivanka Trump are senior advisers to the president. Trump did not name a replacement for Haley, but said “many people” want to take her place.

    President Trump‘s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, has resigned, leaving the White House with one less moderate Republican voice on his cabinet’s foreign policy team. Ms. Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, had been an early and frequent critic of Mr. Trump, so when he named her the envoy to the world body weeks after his election in November 2016, the appointment was seen as an olive branch. The daughter of immigrants from India, Ms. Haley favored free markets and global trade and earned international attention for speaking out against the Confederate battle flag in the...

    Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has vowed Russia will do "everything possible" to preserve the 2015 Iranian nuclear deal despite the U.S. withdrawal. Speaking to the UN General Assembly on September 28, Lavrov denounced U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the deal that curbs Iran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. Lavrov called the U.S. move a violation of UN resolutions and a threat to regional stability. Lavrov also denounced what he said were "baseless accusations" of Russian interference in foreign affairs and criticized U.S. policies in Iran, Syria, and Venezuela. Lavrov accused...

    The United States accused Russia on Thursday of pressuring an independent panel of U.N. experts to alter a report on sanctions against North Korea that included alleged sanctions violations "implicating Russian actors." U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley expressed disappointment in the panel monitoring sanctions against North Korea "for caving to Russian pressure and making changes to what should have been an independent report." She called it "a stain" on the experts' important work. Haley said the panel should release the original report, which cited "a massive increase in illicit ship-to-ship transfers of petroleum products" for North Korea in violation of U.N....

    Sarah Palin had a pretty good Super Tuesday. Three of the four candidates she endorsed won, bringing her record in tightly contested races to 8-3 overall this midterm election year. "Oftentimes I'm looking at the candidate who shares the circumstances in which I've been: underfunded, up against the machine, no big endorsements, running a grassroots campaign with the help of volunteer friends and family," Palin told TIME. Palin has done particularly well picking winners in Senate and gubernatorial races, having endorsed Senate candidate Rand Paul in Kentucky, Texas Governor Rick Perry, Susana Martinez for Governor in New Mexico and on...

    Al-Reuters ^ | August 28, 2018 2:59 PM | Warren Strobel and Lisa Lambert
    U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Tuesday appeared to question the world body’s count of Palestinian refugees, the latest in a series of steps by the Trump administration challenging how relief aid is delivered to the Palestinians. In remarks at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington think tank often sympathetic to Israel, Haley agreed with a questioner who suggested that the U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNWRA), which helps Palestinian refugees, overcounts their number. The United States earlier this year cut its aid to UNWRA to $60 million from a promised $350 million for the...

    The committee that monitors sanctions on North Korea for the UN Security Council approved new U.S.-backed guidelines Monday to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid to millions of hungry and impoverished civilians. The guidelines were crafted by U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley and experts with the U.S. mission to the UN as tensions between the U.S. and North Korea remain high. Despite the new guidance on humanitarian aid, "the United States has been very clear that we will continue to enforce the current sanctions until we achieve the final, fully verified, denuclearization of North Korea," a U.S. official told CBS News...

    The U.S. is calling out China and Russia for helping North Korea violate United Nations sanctions as the regime smuggles in more oil than is allowed. The illegal transfers are now disrupting the U.S. talks with North Korea and its push for the regime to completely dismantle its nuclear weapons program, according to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. Pompeo traveled to New York Friday to join Haley for a meeting with the U.N. Security Council representatives, including Chinese and Russian representatives, for what Haley called "frank talk." "We put pressure today...
