New York Times Blames Niki Haley for Extravagant Spending Approved by Obama Administration

The New York Times is to newspapers what CNN is to mainstream media in leading in their respective businesses in being the most anti-Trump organizations of all.

It seems that CNN has the overall lead with fake news or grossly biased and misleading news concerning President Donald Trump, but the New York Times is making headway on trying to take the anti-Trump crown away from CNN.

Last week, the NYT ran an anonymous op-ed that ripped Trump apart, but no one is willing to take credit for the hatchet job and thus casting serious doubt on its accuracy.

Now, the NYT has targeted UN Ambassador Niki Haley with a piece that obviously is meant to make her look bad and frivolous.

Trending: Trump Not to Blame for New Zealand Attack – Here’s Proof

(New York Times) – The State Department spent $52,701 last year buying customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Nikki R. Haley’s official residence as ambassador to the United Nations, just as the department was undergoing deep budget cuts and had frozen hiring.

The residence, in a new building on First Avenue, has spectacular views, and Ms. Haley is the first ambassador to live in it. For decades, her predecessors lived in the Waldorf Astoria hotel. But after the hotel was purchased by a Chinese insurance company with a murky ownership structure, the State Department decided in 2016 to find a new home for its top New York diplomat because of security concerns.

The government leased the apartment, just blocks from the delegation’s offices, with an option to buy, according to Patrick Kennedy, the top management official at the State Department during the Obama administration. The full-floor penthouse, with handsome hardwood floors covering large open spaces stretching nearly 6,000 square feet, was listed at $58,000 a month…

After reading the first several paragraphs of the NYT post, you would think that Haley is guilty of wild spending of taxpayer money for a lavish lifestyle.

However, if you read further down, there is one small mention that the expenditure was approved in 2016 by the Obama administration and that Haley had no say in what was spent.

Yet, the rest of the post seems to continue to vilify Haley for the actions and decisions of those in the Obama administration.

This is typical of the anti-Trump mainstream media that continues to blame Trump for things that happened during the Obama administration like the separation of families of illegal aliens.
