If there’s one person other than “Mad Dog” Mattis that President Trump nailed in his picks to fill his top ranks, it’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley. She’s been an absolute beast when it comes to taking care of America’s business and while I wasn’t a fan of hers before she took this post — I definitely am nowadays.
At today’s meeting over the violence that recently broke out in Gaza over the move of the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Haley showed the entire room — the entire world — where she and America stand.
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had a simple response Tuesday when Palestine’s Ambassador to the UN blamed Israel for the recent violence in Gaza.
Haley stood up and walked out of the UN Security Council meeting room when Palestinian Ambassador Riyad H. Mansour began his remarks. Tensions were high in the Security Council after nearly sixty Palestinian protesters were killed by Israeli forces Monday during rioting on the Gaza border.
Protesters stormed the Israeli border, armed with slingshots, rocks and Molotov cocktails. The protests were in response to the opening of the new US embassy in Jerusalem.
Haley told the emergency Security Council meeting, “No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has. In fact the records of several countries here today suggest they would be much less restrained.”
Haley then blocked a call for a UN investigation into Israel’s role in the violent clashes.
She blamed the terror group, Hamas, for the violence, saying they have “incited attacks against Israeli security forces and infrastructure.”
Mansour blamed “Israel occupation forces” for the “odious massacre” of Palestinians.
Haley tweeted a challenge after the tense exchange, asking “who among us would accept this type of activity on your border? No one would.”
