Following her Senate confirmation on Tuesday, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley is relaying America’s new approach to its opposition.
On behalf of President Donald Trump’s new administration, Haley spoke to news media when she walked into the U.N. headquarters for the first time Friday.
While vowing to “show strength,” “speak out,” and “defend its allies,” Haley didn’t broach the subject timidly.
“Our goal with the administration is to show value at the U.N.,” Haley said. “And the way that we’ll show value is to show our strength, show our voice, have the backs of our allies, and make sure our allies have our back, as well.”
“For those that don’t have our backs, we’re taking names,” Haley said. “You are going to see a change in the way we do business. It’s no longer about working harder, it’s about working smarter,” the former South Carolina governor explained.
Hoping to add “fresh eyes” to the United Nations, as Trump put it, Haley is now the primary point of contact to the governing entity. The U.S. currently pays 22 percent of the U.N. Security Council’s budget, including 28 percent of its peacekeeping spending.
