OF COURSE I LIKE THE PICK, BUT WHY DO WE EVEN HAVE A UN THESE DAYS?
President-elect Trump has tapped South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to be the post of United States ambassador to the United Nations. Haley has accepted the nomination. The South Carolina governor said in a statement that she was “honored” for the chance to serve the country as U.N. ambassador. Haley is the daughter of immigrants, from India is serving her second term in the South Carolina statehouse and is seen as a rising star in the Republican Party. She is the first female named to the Trump Cabinet. Haley will remain as the South Carolina’s governor until the Senate acts on her appointment.
President-elect Trump has offered South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley the post of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and she has accepted, Mr. Trump’s transition team announced Wednesday morning.
“Governor Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation to move critical policies forward for the betterment of her state and our country,” the president-elect said in a statement. “She is also a proven dealmaker, and we look to be making plenty of deals. She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage.”
The South Carolina governor, in her own statement, said she was “honored” for the chance to serve the country as U.N. ambassador.
Haley said she was moved to accept the nomination for two reasons: “The first is a sense of duty. When the President believes you have a major contribution to make to the welfare of our nation, and to our nation’s standing in the world, that is a calling that is important to heed. The second is a satisfaction with all that we have achieved in our state in the last six years and the knowledge that we are on a very strong footing,” she wrote.
