I’ve never lived in South Carolina, but when Nikki Haley was governor of the state through the Obama era, she always impressed me as one of the few good conservatives in government.
At first when Trump nominated Haley to be the US Ambassador to the United Nations, I was surprised.
However, during the past year and half, I have been doubly impressed by Haley’s service in the UN.
Yesterday morning, Haley stunned everyone when she announced that she was resigning from her position.
She did say that she will serve through the rest of 2018 and that she has no plans to mount a presidential campaign to run against President Donald Trump.
Haley, who was confirmed as ambassador shortly after President Trump was inaugurated, offered her resignation Tuesday morning and will serve through the end of 2018.
She emphasized she is not planning to run for president in 2020 and looks forward to campaigning for the president’s re-election.
“She has been as someone who has really stood up for Trump foreign policy. Every aspect of it,” he said…
Most of America’s former UN Ambassadors didn’t have the guts to face the entire General Assembly and tell them they were wrong, but that’s exactly what Haley did on more than one occasion.
The two UN Ambassadors under Obama (Susan Rice and Samantha Power) virtually handed the United Nations the keys to the United States with only enough Republicans in the Senate stop some of what they did.
Haley, on the other hand, came close to telling the United Nations what they could do with their one-world socialist government and at times seemed ready to use the keys to lock the UN out of the United States.
If I were President Trump, I would announce that the United States was completely withdrawing from the United Nations at the end of the year and that the UN had 90 days to move all of their offices out of the United States.
Such a move would save the US billions of dollars and the lives of our military men and women.
