Outgoing United Nations Ambassador and former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley said she sometimes coordinated with President Donald Trump to use his seemingly unpredictable rhetoric to handle diplomatic issues.
On NBC’s Today Show Wednesday, Haley said she and the president worked as partners to use his bombastic comments on social media to America’s political advantage.
Haley said in her less than two years as ambassador she was most proud of successfully getting sanctions passed against North Korea.
She believed the U.S. should also delicately handle the killing of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. “I think we need to have a serious hard talk with the Saudis to let them know we won’t condone this, we won’t give you a pass and don’t do this again,” Haley said
Haley’s interview was with NBC’s Craig Melvin, a former South Carolina news anchor.
