‘We are taking names’ of those who fail to support US, Trump’s new UN envoy warns


The new US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, who has little foreign policy experience, has warned US allies that if they do not support Washington, she will be playing tit-for-tat and “taking names.”

“Our goal with the administration is to show value at the UN 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 that our allies have our back as well,” Haley said on arriving at UN headquarters in New York to present her credentials to UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

“For those that don’t have our back, we’re taking names, we will make points to respond to that accordingly,” Haley warned on Friday.

The 45-year old had been serving as South Carolina’s Republican governor for 5 years when Trump picked her for the coveted post.

Haley, who was among Time Magazine’s 100 most influential people last year, has vowed to reshape the world body, which was established in 1945 after the end of the WW2.

“Everything that’s working, we’re going to make it better, everything that’s not working we’re going to try and fix, and anything that seems to be obsolete and not necessary we’re going to do away with,” Haley told reporters. (Click to Article)
