President Donald Trump said that outgoing UN ambassador Nikki Haley has made the ambassador’s position a more glamorous and important position. President Trump made the remarks before heading to Iowa for ethanol meetings.
“A more important position, that’s the more important thing,” President Trump said.
The two are splitting amicably, with Nikki Haley promising not to run for re-election in 2020.
“I will be campaigning for the President,” Nikki Haley said.
Trump gave a timeline of 2 to 3 weeks for picking a new UN ambassador.
“I guess that’s why she lost. She doesn’t get it. She never did. Hillary never got it. That’s why she lost,” President Trump said.
