I Dont Get Confused, Nikki Haley Says, Rebuffing White House in Sanctions Dispute
New York Times ^ | 4-17-2018 | MARK LANDLER and PETER BAKER

WEST PALM BEACH FLORIDA-Nikki R. Haley, the ambassador to the United Nations, fired back at the White House on Tuesday, denying that she had been confused when she announced on Sunday that the Trump administration would impose new sanctions on Russia.

"With all due respect, I don't get confused," she told Dana Perino of Fox News.

She was responding to a comment earlier in the day by Larry Kudlow, the president's new economic advisor who was briefing reporters in Florida before President Trump's meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan.

"She got ahead of the curve,” Mr. Kudlow said. “She’s done a great job. She’s a very effective ambassador, but there might have been some momentary confusion about that.”

On Monday, White House officials said Mr. Trump had not yet decided whether to impose sanctions on Russian companies found to be assisting Syria’s chemical weapons program. That contradicted Ms. Haley, who had said a day earlier that the president would take that step.

Mr. Kudlow was the first senior White House official to place the blame directly on Ms. Haley...

Neocon Nikki is going to show Trump who is the boss. And he can forget about pulling our troops out because the queen bee says we're not leaving Syria until the mission is complete and since she says the mission includes keeping an eye on Iran, that mission will never be complete.

If any of the previous posters had actually read the article they would see that later Krudlow walked back his comment.

Nikki Haley has done a fantastic job as U.N. ambassador. She takes no prisoners and lets other countries know that she puts America first.

I read this article and I do not like this woman. She will be a problem. She was a #nevertrumper and picking her was a mistake.

However Krudloe walked back his snark. So I wonder whose job it was to brief Amb, Haley on Trump’s latest twist in the wind...

Ikki is always confused. She has no respect for American history and culture.

From exactly 26 months ago:

CNN)Nikki Haley is not a fan of Donald Trump.

The Republican South Carolina governor said Tuesday that she's not sure if she'll endorse anyone for president ahead of the Republican South Carolina primary, but if she does, it won't be Trump, according to CNN affiliate WIS Television in Columbia.

She said Trump represents "everything a governor doesn't want in a president."

After she had made her comment.

My feeling about her echoes that except that screeching authoritarian dingaling can never be POTUS. That is a good thing.

So let me see if im getting this right. She was a great pick when she stood up for Israel and the embassy move as well as holding funds back. But now she is a bad pick? Which is it?

Dana Perino is the loser here.

Point?

Fact is as Krudlow states the policy position shifter and the point person wasn’t notified. Crappy way to run an office.
