United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley takes no prisoners.
When she’s upset with the way other countries are treating the U.S., look out.
From America News Hub:
It won’t come as a shock when Nikki Haley becomes secretary of state if President Trump wins a second term – or even sooner.
It also won’t be surprising if the former governor of South Carolina runs for president in 2024.
A diplomat from a Muslim country called America a ‘bully.’
A senior diplomat from a Muslim country, speaking on condition of anonymity, said of @nikkihaley's letter: "States resort to such blatant bullying only when they know they do not have a moral or legal argument to convince others." https://t.co/x86IDjiDyL

Haley wasn’t having it.
Actually it is when a country is tired of being taken for granted.

More via Daily Caller:
Since becoming ambassador to the United Nations, Haley has presided over the Trump administration’s decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
The U.N. will vote on a resolution condemning America’s decision to move the embassy to Jerusalem Thursday, and Haley said that the U.S. “will be taking names” of countries that vote for it.
More on Haley, from Newsmax:
The United States warned the North Korean leadership that it would be “utterly destroyed” if war were to break out, after Pyongyang test fired its most advanced intercontinental ballistic missile, putting the U.S. mainland within range.
The Trump administration has repeatedly said all options were on the table in dealing with North Korea, including military ones, but has said it still prefers a diplomatic option.
Still, speaking at an emergency U.N. Security Council meeting, U.S. ambassador Nikki Haley warned: “If war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.”
Haley said the United States has asked China to cut off oil supply to North Korea. U.S. President Donald Trump, who has vowed to halt North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs, spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping earlier on Wednesday.
More per ABC7:
In a government statement released through state media, North Korea said the Hwasong-15, the “greatest ICBM,” could be armed with a “super-large heavy nuclear warhead” and is capable of striking the “whole mainland” of the U.S. The North said the missile reached a height of 4,475 kilometers (2,780 miles) and traveled 950 kilometers (590 miles) before accurately hitting a sea target, similar to the flight data announced by South Korea’s military.
After the launch, it said leader Kim Jong Un “declared with pride” that his country has achieved its goal of becoming a “rocket power.” State TV said Kim gave the order Tuesday, and it broadcast a photo of Kim’s signed order where he wrote: “Test launch is approved. Taking place at the daybreak of Nov. 29! Fire with courage for the party and country!”
Speaking later Wednesday, Trump could not resist taking a dig at Kim. Digressing during a speech in Missouri on tax reform, Trump called Kim “Little Rocket Man” and described him as “a sick puppy.”
The North Korean launch was a message of defiance to the Trump administration, which a week earlier restored North Korea to a U.S. list of terror sponsors. It also ruins nascent diplomatic efforts, raises fears of war or a pre-emptive U.S. strike and casts a deeper shadow over the security of the Winter Olympics early next year in South Korea.
Haley for the win?
