Nikki Haley tapped for Trump administration

nikki-haleySouth Carolina governor Nikki Haley has been selected by President-elect Donald Trump to be the United States’ ambassador to the United Nations.

An official announcement from the Trump office is expected on Wednesday.

The daughter of Indian immigrants and South Carolina’s first woman and minority governor, Haley had stumped for Marco Rubio and endorsed Ted Cruz during the presidential campaign.

Haley toned-down her dislike of Trump as the election neared telling reporters that she would be voting for him.

After Trump won the election, Haley said, “I’m just giddy, and if you talk to any of the governors here, we are so excited at the possibility and the opportunities that are going to be here.”

  1. Well, ‘giddy’ I’m not with this appointment. I had long considered her a rising star….until I saw how easily she appeared to give in on the Rebel Flag and monuments that are such an inter woven part of not only southern history, but national. I’m not from that part of the country, but to me it was rather like tossing away a ‘part of us’

    Her lack of foreign policy is of concern. Will she have enough knowledge of others customs, needs etc to effectively weigh decisions on or to garner votes aligned with our interest? Too many questions

    Other appointees ? So far, so good.,…but will miss K.T’s commentary
