Trump Picks Frequent GOP Critic Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador – She Refused to Endorse Him as President

President-elect Donald Trump nominated Governor Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador today.

The Trump Transition Team said, “Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together.”

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley delivered the State of the Union response this year for the Republican Party. During her response Haley took potshots at GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

That’s not all.

Governor Haley also channeled Progressive Ted Kennedy, the father of the ruinous Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, in her comments on immigration.

Nikki Haley told reporters last month she would not endorse Donald Trump. She said this year’s election “turned her stomach” and she doesn’t like either of her choices, but she’ll ultimately be casting a vote for the GOP nominee.

The New York Times reported last week that Trump defender Richard Grenell was in the running for the position. Grenell supported Trump for months. He would have been the first openly gay cabinet member in US history — and he would have been an excellent choice. Sadly, this did not happen.
