Do not mess with US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley

World leaders should take note, Nikki Haley is a strong woman and strong leader

A good rule of thumb for world leaders, don't mess with United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley. In light of the attack on ex-Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Great Britain, Haley had a dire warning on Russia. Speaking to the U.N. Security Council here is what Ambassador Haley said.

"If we don't take immediate concrete measures to address this now, Salisbury will not be the last place we see chemical weapons used. They could be used here in New York, or in cities of any country that sits on this Council. This is a defining moment.”

Haley went on.

Haley is right. Under President Vladimir Putin, Russia has returned to its old KGB ways. At this moment, Russia continues to back Syria and Bashar Assad, who has used chemical weapons on his own people. Under Putin, Russia has continued to act like thugs, vetoing multiple attempts to hold Assad responsible. Yes, the Russians meddle in the 2016 election and have launched cyber attacks on multiple countries throughout the world. Those actions are important and should be condemned and have consequences. However, those measures by Putin seem inadequate to the atrocities of murdering and poisoning those who oppose the Russian tyrannical state.

Here are Haley's exact comments.

I have not always agreed with President Trump and have been critical of how he conducts himself in office. The one thing that the President did well is appoint Nikki Haley to this post. Great leaders use both strong action and powerful words. Haley is that type of leader.

She understands how authoritarians operate. Ambassador Haley sees the world not through rose colored glasses, but how it really is. From day one, she has understood Russia and has rightly been critical of the lack of action by the U.N. Ambassador Haley is a picture of Reagan’s foreign policy philosophy of peace through strength. If you want to see how a strong woman and leader operates, look no further than Nikki Haley.

The President has appointed many strong and intelligent women. It's unfortunate that the press ignores this because it doesn't fit within the misogyny narrative. Nikki Haley is one of my favorites. Loved her when she was governor and love her now.

I liked Nikki Haley from the first time I heard her speak. She was no-nonsense and direct. The thing she is not, I guess what irks the liberals off, one of those fawning circumlocutious diplomats with nothing to say but use a lot of words to cover up their intent. She is a breath of fresh air in the UN.

Nikki Haley would probably be a good president. Too bad she isn't eligible for the presidency, as her parents were not citizens when she was born and therefore she is not a Natural Born Citizen. She, Jindal and Rubio are all ineligible.. Cruz's mother was a citizen at the time of his birth so he is.eligible. I take issue with Clayton Felts' comment that "The one thing that the President did well is appoint Nikki Haley to this post..." No, it is not the ONE thing he has done well, it is one of many things he has done well. But it was definitely a good choice and she is what we need in that position.

Jules: the requirements to be a U.S. president are- "The Constitution gives three eligibility requirements to be president: one must be 35 years of age, a resident "within the United States" for 14 years, and a "natural born Citizen," a term not defined in the Constitution." The term "natural born" is someone who was a U.S. citizen at birth with no need to go through a naturalization proceeding at some later time. As Haley was born in South Carolina, she is a "natural born" citizen from birth. Therefore, her parents' citizenship does not matter.


To echo @SmileyK, Haley, Jindal and Rubio were all born in the U.S. and are natural born citizens. There are only two ways to be a citizen, naturalized and birth. Unless a person has to go through the naturalization process, they are natural born citizens.
