Nikki Haley Was Never the Adult in the Room

This political opportunist made herself an ally, an apologist, and an acolyte of a man she once recognized as “irresponsible.”

  • Nikki Haley departure meeting with Trump

Nikki Haley had a good take on Donald Trump when he was running for president. In a clear rebuke to the anti-immigrant, anti-refugee populism that Trump was stoking, the daughter of Sikh immigrants from India declared early in the 2016 campaign season that “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.”

She told NBC that “Mr. Trump has definitely contributed to what I think is just irresponsible talk.” As the Republican governor of the critical primary state of South Carolina, she backed Marco Rubio’s comically inept bid to prevent Trump from becoming the Republican nominee. When Rubio’s campaign collapsed, she went to the bottom of the barrel and backed Ted Cruz. When Trump ripped her on Twitter—“The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!”—Haley responded: “Bless your heart.” As the general election approached, the governor admitted that, while she would vote for fellow-Republican Trump rather than Democrat Hillary Clinton, “I’m not a fan of either one.”

When the votes were counted and Trump emerged as a surprise winner, however, Haley quickly warmed to Trump and Trumpism. A famously ambitious politician—Haley’s 2016 campaign-season sniping at Trump was widely seen as part of a plan to position her as contender for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination—she wanted to be part of the new Republican administration. Even if it was led by the guy she had so recently decried as angry, irresponsible, and divisive.

Haley was angling for a cabinet post, or perhaps a place even closer to power as a member of the National Security Council. But she settled for a gig as the president’s ambassador to the United Nations.

Because of their tumultuous past, there was speculation that Haley would serve as a dissident within the Trump administration—an “adult in the room” who might break with the president on at least a few issues of consequence, or perhaps influence the administration to consider more thoughtful approaches to international affairs.

Didn’t happen. As Haley prepares to exit her UN post, she does so as a full-on Trumpkin who says that promoting the president’s agenda on the global stage has been “the honor of a lifetime.” Trump is equally lavish in his praise of Haley’s ambassadorship, saying that “she made it a more glamorous position, she’s made it, more importantly, a more important position.” But Vice President Mike Pence has summed things up best by hailing Haley for “faithfully advancing President Trump’s America First agenda.”

That she did, providing cover for the president’s most extreme and dangerous pronouncements and policies. Trump has never shown any respect for the UN, and Haley made it clear that her ambassadorship would focus on “protecting our interests” rather than forging partnerships or promoting peacekeeping and diplomacy. Indeed, one of Haley’s biggest projects at the UN was downsizing the UN, with threats of cuts in US aid and steady prodding to reduce the ambitions of the global body. Haley grumbled, “We will no longer let the generosity of the American people be taken advantage of or remain unchecked.”

With that line, Ambassador Haley was echoing Trump—a project at which she proved to be strikingly adept.

When Trump scrapped the Iran nuclear deal, Haley said the president “absolutely made the right decision.” When he moved to pull the US out of the Paris climate accords, she made excuses for him. When he threatened to blow up North Korea, she amplified his bombast. When he aligned with dictators and abandoned historic commitments to human rights, she was cool with that. When he undermined prospects for Middle East peace by moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, she not only supported the break with the past policies of Democratic and Republican administrations but threatened allies who dared to disagree with Trump’s new line. “At the UN, we’re constantly asked to do more and give more—in the past we have. So, when we make a decision, at the will of the American people, about where to locate our embassy, we don’t expect those we’ve helped to target us,” said Haley, who announced that “there will be a vote at the UN criticizing our choice. And yes, the US will be taking names.”

That wasn’t very diplomatic. But Trump approved. And that was the point.

Though she tried to suggest that she was willing to speak truth to the president’s power, the fundamental truth of Haley’s tenure at the UN was that she was an all-in Trumpkin. Even when she suggested in a recent opinion piece that she sometimes disagrees with the president, Haley did so as an enforcer of political discipline. Her Washington Post articleattacked the author of an anonymous critique of Trump published in The New York Timeswith the argument that “When I challenge the president, I do it directly. My anonymous colleague should have, too.”

There is very little evidence to suggest that Haley served Trump as an “adult in the room.” She was an ally, an apologist, and an acolyte of a man she once recognized as irresponsible.

That’s not how able diplomats operate, and Nikki Haley will never be confused with an able diplomat.

But that is how politicians operate, and Nikki Haley will always be understood as a self-serving and self-promoting politician.

As Nikki Haley Resigns, Critics Forced to Clarify That "Pro-War, Pro-Imperialist" Sycophant for Trump Is No "Moderate"

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley "was probably the most pro-war, pro-imperialist high-ranking Trump official, and therefore the most beloved Trump official by the war-loving U.S. media. She held every conventional foreign policy view that has generated so much destruction."

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley unexpectedly announced her resignation on Tuesday, but informed critics are raising their voices in the aftermath of the news to make sure nobody gets away with describing the outgoing diplomat—who said she will serve in the position until the end of the year—as anything other than what she is: a sycophant for President Donald Trump and a horrible war-monger who used her powerful position to push a neoconservative foreign policy while undermining global goodwill, overtly attacking human rights, and making the world a more dangerous place.

"Nikki Haley resigned, good riddance."
—Rania Khalek, journalist
While some news outlets and commenters ignored historical evidence as they attempted to frame Haley as a "moderate" voice in the Trump administration and Republicans applauded her "moral clarity," progressive critics hit back hard against such blatantly false characterizations.

"Moderate?" exclaimed political commentator Amir Amini in a tweet responding the New York Times' story about the surprise resignation. "Haley spent every minute of her time at the UN threatening innocent nations w/ war, terror and literally bullying and trying to blackmail (and miserably failing) the entire [world] into supporting her agenda dictated by the military industrial complex."

Blasting CNN for whitewashing the record, Medea Benjamin of CodePink didn't have a hard time cataloging some of Haley's most deplorable accomplishments while at the UN:

Numerous data points during Trump's presidency and Haley's time at the UN have shown a woeful decline of the United States' standing in the eyes of the world. Just last week, as Common Dreams reported, a global Pew survey showed that only 50 percent of the world currently has a favorable opinion of the U.S., down from 64 percent when President Obama left office.

According to journalist Glenn Greenwald, the reason outlets like the Times describe Haley as a "moderate" is "because she affirms all of the standard pro-war, pro-imperial orthodoxies that are bipartisan consensus in Washington. That's why [Bill Kristol, founder and editor of the right-wing The Weekly Standard] reveres her. She was a Tea Party candidate, but 'moderate' means: loves U.S. wars & hegemony."

Before Trump's hiring of John Bolton as National Security Adviser, Greenwald added, "Haley was probably the most pro-war, pro-imperialist high-ranking Trump official, and therefore the most beloved Trump official by the war-loving U.S. media. She held every conventional foreign policy view that has generated so much destruction."

Meanwhile, religious scholar and author Reza Aslan issued this plea to reporters and commentators, "Please make sure all your Nikki Haley hot takes mention just how awful she is, what an embarrassment she was as UN Ambassador, and how quickly this 'moderate' Republican violated her 'values' to serve at the feet of a racist, pussy-grabbing sociopath."

And as journalist Matthew Chapman noted:

Beyond her disgraceful record, the news of Haley's resignation was greeted with widespread speculation about her future plans. While some have concocted a theory—not wholly without merit—that Haley could be used to replace Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) if he is tapped by Trump to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions (assuming Sessions gets canned or quits following the midterms), others said the much more interesting and importation speculation is about why she is departing now.

While Trump and Haley stated Tuesday that her departure has been planned for months, on Monday the ethics watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) called on the State Department Inspector General to initiate an official probe in order to determine if Haley violated ethics regulations by accepting more than half a dozen free flights for herself and her husband on luxury private aircraft from three South Carolina businessmen last year.

"By accepting gifts of luxury private flights, Ambassador Haley seems to be falling in line with other Trump administration officials who are reaping personal benefits from their public positions," said CREW executive director Noah Bookbinder, in a statement.

It might be too early to speculate about precisely who might replace Haley next year, but  journalist Rania Khalek had a good idea of what qualifications the top candidates can expect to have:

Llet me see, Easy has nothing positive to say about her.  That makes her tops in my book.  Seriously, Nikki Haley is one of the “good ones” in the Trump Administration.  Obviously not liberal enough for Easy and the remainder of the left.  And quite frankly her foreign policy is not quite progressive and non-interventionist enough to fit my ideal model of a U.N. Ambassador.  However she is the best we are going to see until Trump is out of office.

leftist agenda? You people are ridiculous and delusional. Haley isn't very bright, one, she is a war mongering inhumane twit that did all manner of harm to us and our relations with the people around the world. That she is a woman is of no consequence cathy. How anyone with any perception of her can say otherwise is astounding. hawk once again shows his foreign policy acumen, zilch. I find it hard to believe that he gets behind this neo-con war mongering criminal in the human rights sense of moral law. Do your homework, Nikki Haley was not a good Ambassador, period. To think otherwise is foolish to say the least. 

Haley is a neo-con, establishment stooge who is exactly the type of person we need to be rid of. Unless of course you are an asshole of the 1% Wall St/Bankster/M.I.C. oligarchy mind set. Then you too are part of the problem for all Americans

A government watchdog group on Monday called for an investigation into whether U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley violated federal ethics regulations by accepting flights on private planes.  Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) sent a letter formally requesting the State Department’s inspector general investigate the flights, which Haley acknowledged in her 2017 public financial disclosure report.    The seven free flights were between New York, Washington, D.C., and three cities in the former governor's home state of South Carolina.  CREW wrote in a statement that the total value of the flights in unknown but estimates they were worth tens of thousands of dollars.  Federal ethics regulations ban employees from soliciting or accepting gifts because of their official positions, and Haley asserted on her financial disclosure report that she was personal friends with the three South Carolina businessmen involved.   The watchdog group called for the State Department inspector general to determine whether the personal relationship exemption is applicable for Haley’s flights.  CREW wrote in its request that the men are executives at various companies and all appear to have made contributions to Haley's gubernatorial campaigns in South Carolina.  “In this case, Ambassador Haley’s relationships with these individuals appear to have significant political and professional components,” CREW alleges.  Haley did not indicate on her report whether the men's companies either owned or leased the aircrafts she flew on or if the companies at all contributed to the cost, CREW wrote.  While Haley’s work at the United Nations might not directly link to her donor’s business interests, CREW alleges that her close access with President Trump “makes her a valuable contact for anyone affected by his administration’s policies.”  The Hill has reached out to the State Department and the White House for comment.  CREW pointed out that several members of the Trump administration have been criticized for their use of luxury or government air travel at the taxpayer’s expense.  Former Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price resigned in September 2017 after public uproar over his use of private jets for official business.   And former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt was also criticized for spending more than $105,000 on first-class airline travel in his first year on the job.   His spending was one of the many high-profile controversies that led up to his resignation from the agency in July.  CREW wrote in its request that Haley should have been more “conscious of the appearance concerns” surrounding her acceptance of private air travel since her colleagues at the administration were making their own headlines.

The time is always right to do what is right.

Nikki Haley's resignation comes one day after an ethics watchdog requested an investigation into her acceptance of free flights on private jets


Hat tip to 49CFR from another board:




Post by the49cfr on about an hour ago

Nikki Haley was facing a formal complaint over ethics after series of private jet flights funded by businessmen from her native South Carolina

Seven flights on luxury aircraft that the UN ambassador disclosed on her 2017 form.

All were provided by South Carolina businessmen, for flights taken by Haley and her husband.

Haley said they were due to existing friendships.

Let's see...she accepted flights on a friends plane which she voluntarily made public knowledge on an official disclosure form two years ago. WOW...big ol' nothingburger. These libs must still be buttsore after Trumps election and Kavanaugh's confirmation. I'm lovin' it!


Try to remember the kind of September when men weren't girls and girls weren't fellas..................

Glen Greenwald, another stooge I suppose eh FSA geniuses?


According to journalist Glenn Greenwald, the reason outlets like the Times describe Haley as a "moderate" is "because she affirms all of the standard pro-war, pro-imperial orthodoxies that are bipartisan consensus in Washington. That's why [Bill Kristol, founder and editor of the right-wing The Weekly Standard] reveres her. She was a Tea Party candidate, but 'moderate' means: loves U.S. wars & hegemony."

Before Trump's hiring of John Bolton as National Security Adviser, Greenwald added, "Haley was probably the most pro-war, pro-imperialist high-ranking Trump official, and therefore the most beloved Trump official by the war-loving U.S. media. She held every conventional foreign policy view that has generated so much destruction."


So, are you guys saying that you too are in support of this war mongering, crimes against humanity hegemony attitude? This is the type of leadership you respect and enjoy?
