President Trump will say: “Mrs. Nikki Failey, here is the door, use it and don’t let the door hit you on the way out!”
“I feel sorry for Nikki Haley,” said former Secretary of State Madeline Albright [bloody Maddie]. “She has been very tough up there making points. She makes very clear that she’s representing the president. And all of a sudden she’s put into this ridiculous situation of looking as though she is out there by herself on something.”
NEW YORK (AP) — The public split between the White House and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley this week over Russia sanctions threw a spotlight on her at-times uneasy relationship with President Donald Trump, even as her deft rebuttal bolstered talk about her own future political fortunes.
Trump was angry Sunday when he saw Haley on television discussing new Russia sanctions that she said would be announced the next day. He blasted her for being out of step with the rest of the administration, according to two White House officials. They were not authorized to discuss private conversations and commented only on condition of anonymity.
Despite Haley’s words, no new sanctions were imposed.
Asked for an explanation, Larry Kudlow, the president’s new economic adviser, told reporters that Haley “got ahead of the curve” and he added, “She’s a very effective ambassador, but there might have been some momentary confusion about that.”
The next day, Haley hit back, releasing a statement to Fox News that read: “With all due respect, I don’t get confused.”
Kudlow apologized but Haley’s differences with the White House had already pushed into the open.
At the United Nations, responding to a shouted question about her relationship with the president, she simply said, “It’s perfect.” But the White House was left scrambling to explain.
