“President Trump has accepted Nikki Haley’s resignation as UN Ambassador, according to two sources briefed on their conversation. The timing of her departure is still unclear,” reports Axios, adding that news of the resignation has “shocked a number of senior foreign policy officials in the Trump administration.”
However, Haley’s departure should be celebrated by Trump supporters. She was and is a neo-con and an establishment crony who advocated the very foreign policy positions that Trump ran against.
Haley has repeatedly favored jihadists in Syria by supporting the destabilization of Bashar Al-Assad’s secular government. Back in June, she insistedthat any chemical weapons attack in Idlib would be immediately blamed on Assad, despite the large number of terrorist groups in the area and a track record of ISIS carrying out previous chemical weapons attacks.
She then re-iterated this claim last month, asserting that any chemical weapons incident would result in a U.S. attack against the Syrian Army (which is fighting ISIS).
Haley has also repeatedly bolstered the fraudulent narrative, invented by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the deep state, that Russia meddled in the 2016 U.S. presidential election to help Trump.
“When a country can come interfere in another country’s elections, that is warfare,” Haley said in October last year.
Haley has also fanned the flames of hysteria by lobbying for an increasingly hostile position against Russia. Earlier this year, she ludicrously assertedthat Russia could launch a chemical weapons assassination in New York.
Earlier this summer, Haley even told young conservatives that needed to stop “owning the libs” online because it doesn’t “persuade anyone” and instead they should act like establishment conservative sell-outs like Never Trumper George Will.
Haley was the biggest swamp creature left in the Trump administration. Good riddance.
“Before John Bolton’s hiring, 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 US media. She held every conventional foreign policy view that has generated so much destruction,” tweeted Glenn Greenwald.
According to Jack Posobiec, Haley resigned because she is ” trying to avoid an ethics investigation on private jet flights she received.”
During a press conference in the Oval Office to announce her resignation, President Trump said Haley wanted to “take a break”.
