‘All hat and no cattle’ Nikki Haley set to cash in after disastrous U.N. stint (Video)

US President Trump described the outgoing US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley as an  “extraordinary person” who is “going to make a lot of money” in the private sector.

Haley resigned from her UN post on Tuesday, but is likely to stay in her UN position until the end of the year, before her successor could be nominated and confirmed by the Senate.

President Trump told the press after Haley’s resignation…

“Nikki is going to be here until the end of the year. Nikki is our friend. She has been great. I want whoever it is to spend some time with Nikki before Nikki goes out and gets herself a job, and hopefully does — she’s going to make a lot of money. And I think Nikki will come back in some form too. But she’s an extraordinary person, good person.”

Trump told reporters that he was looking at four or five different candidates to replace Haley, with the likely frontrunner being Dina Powell, the former deputy national security adviser to Trump.

When POTUS was asked about the timing of Haley’s resignation before the mid-term elections, Trump said nothing much should be read into it…

“There’s no good time. I mean, there is be no good time. She told me about this a long time ago. And, frankly, it’s almost four weeks. So, it’s not that bad. No, I don’t think so at all. I thought it was very elegantly done.”

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s surprise announcement to resign by the end of the year sent shock waves across Washington’s foreign policy landscape Tuesday, triggering speculation that President Trump is gearing up for a new hard-line shift on international affairs as he heads toward his third year in office.

With Mr. Trump saying he’ll nominate a successor within three weeks, foreign diplomats are already speculating that the president is bent on naming someone who’ll take his “America First” agenda toward the United Nations to heights even Ms. Haley may have balked at during her run as ambassador over the past 20 months.

“A lot of U.N. officials and foreign diplomats will fret that Trump will select a much more hard-line unilateralist to replace Haley,” said Richard Gowan, a Columbia University professor and expert on U.N. politics.

Others say Mr. Trump, who claimed Tuesday to have known for months of Ms. Haley’s intention to leave the post by the end of 2018, decided suddenly to fast-track her resignation to ensure a successor can be confirmed quickly by the Republican-controlled Senate ahead of a difficult and uncertain midterm vote next month.

“This administration is all politics all the time, so it wouldn’t surprise me that they wanted to get ahead of the election,” said Gordon Adams, a long-time foreign policy commentator who teaches at American University. While Mr. Adams added that “it’s not clear at all why [Ms. Haley] resigned” and “it’s almost impossible to read meaning into it,”

‘US President Trump described the outgoing US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley as an “extraordinary person”…’

Well, that’s indisputable.

Reminds me of the politician who was pressing the flesh and kissing babies, saying, “Oh what a beautiful little girl!” or “What a lively young boy!”

When presented with the ugliest little creature you ever saw, he hesitated a moment and then declared enthusiastically, “Well, that IS a baby!”

As for making a lot of money in the private sector, can anyone think of some obvious characteristics that would support such a bold prediction?

Arrogance, entitlement, dishonesty, lack of any moral standards…

She’d fit right into the banking world, for instance.

“Extraordinary person”, yes, extraordinarly stupid.
Can Trump appoint someone even worse as her replacement? USA politics never ceases to amaze in the amount of ignorant, entitled ignoramuses it fields.

Yea everyone he has on his list. They want war with Russia, Iran and China so bad they dream about it every night. The United States wants to be the only super power in the world being able to tell every country what they can and can not do. Like the Roman Empire all over again.

I would suggest that it has more to do with Nimrata’s failure to deliver on some areas in which she should have had influence … or, her opposition to Administration policies (stay tuned to her GA diatribes). Recall that India is in the BRICS group, is buying oil from Iran, is ignoring sanctions not agreed upon by the U.N., among other actions, regardless of what the U.S. says. If India is buying arms from Russia, what’s to prevent them from sharing the technology of those who have been recent suppliers, specifically one British designated and sponsored client in the Mideast,… Read more »
