There have been a few bright spots in the Trump administration among the cabinet members. James Mattis was an excellent choice for Defense Secretary to name one. Nikki Haley, however, has proven to be a beacon of light in this administration. Many people wondered if she could handle the role of UN Ambassador considering her lack of experience with foreign policy, myself included.
She surprised everybody. Since she’s based in NYC and not Washington DC, Haley remains far from the tentacles of Trump, allowing her to call the shots she wants. She was fearless and showed that when she said Donald Trump’s accusers “should be heard.” Trump apparently “fumed” about it but she didn’t care. She’s stood her ground against the jokers at the United Nations who spend more time sucking up to tyrants and thugs while criticizing the United States. Israel could not have asked for a better ally.
Naturally, it was going to be interesting to see what Haley would have to say about the Iran protests. It was hilarious watching former Obama officials who sucked up to the mullahs for two terms and completely ignored the last round of demonstrations for democracy, suddenly lining up to show their favor. Thanks for nothing, losers. You can read Andrea’s post here to see what Mitt Romney said and the pathetic tweet from Hillary Clinton who apparently thinks Iran’s government will do the right thing. Don’t they ever learn?
Thankfully, Nikki Haley is on the right side. Here is what she said:

The text says, “In the New Year, our hopes and prayers are with the millions of people who are suffering from oppressive governments in North Korea, Venezuela, Cuba and especially in Iran, where the long-repressed Iranian people are now finding their voice. The Iranian government is being tested by its own citizens. We pray that freedom and human rights will carry the day.”
Not my emphasis. Unlike Clinton who puts her faith in government, Haley puts her faith in people and freedom.
Thank you, Ambassador Haley.
