Nikki Haley, the governor of South Carolina, announced Wednesday that she has accepted an offer by President-elect Donald Trump to become US ambassador to the UN, NBC News reported on Wednesday. The 44-year-old Haley will succeed Samantha Power who has served in the post since 2013. Haley, a daughter of Indian Sikh immigrants who is the country's youngest governor, had harshly criticized Trump's positions during the election campaign. She called his comments on Muslims “an embarrassment for the Republican party,” adding that “It's un-American, it's unconstitutional….We are not going to start making laws based on religion.”
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
