Tillerson puts wannabe president Nikki Haley in her place. Tells her to clear comments with State Department


Nikki Haley wants to be the president of the United States. She’s setting herself up to run in 2020.

As a southerner I resent her fake conservatism and her taking down the Confederate flag while governor of South Carolina.

Although she was born in the USA, she’s not developed the characteristics of a real American patriot. Her ancestors are Indians, the dot head kind.

She’s also backstabbing President Trump at the UN.

Excerpt from The Duran

Rex Tillerson, the US Secretary of State, who has this month started to find his feet as the US’s foreign minister, has finally acted to assert his authority over Nikki Haley, the US’s out of control UN ambassador.

It has become increasingly clear over the last few weeks that Nikki Haley, who is a politician with Presidential ambitions not a diplomat, has been abusing her position as the US’s UN ambassador to grandstand in preparation for what I am sure is an intended Presidential bid.

I have previously discussed Nikki Haley’s behaviour and the exaggerated role she has been allowed to carve out for herself

That doubtless also explains the increasingly undisciplined behaviour of Nikki Haley. Not only is she being allowed to wander around the television studios unchecked, firing off comments which she has clearly not coordinated either with the White House or the State Department, but she is gaining a level of prominence which is completely out of proportion to her supposed role as the US’s UN ambassador. At the moment, instead of being obviously subordinate to Tillerson and McMaster, she appears to be their equal.

It is difficult to avoid the impression that Haley, who is a politician not a diplomat, and who was previously governor of South Carolina and was apparently seriously considered by Mitt Romney for his Vice-Presidential running mate, is running what is in effect an election campaign, with her sights ultimately on the White House. Thus the publicity stunts, like the waving of photos of dead children during a UN Security Council session, which annoyed the veteran diplomats present, but which was clearly aimed at the US television audience.

One result of Haley’s undisciplined behaviour is that the administration either finds itself pulled along by her comments, with the result that Haley is in effect making policy for the White House, or officials like McMaster have to find some way of reconciling what she says with the administration’s actual policies, which may be completely different. A perfect example of this was McMaster elaborate explanation during his Fox News interview explaining why despite the obvious differences between the things Haley and Tillerson are saying, on the subject of regime change in Syria they are actually saying the same thing.

WALLACE: The Trump administration seems to be sending mixed signals this weekend. U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley says that getting rid of Assad is a priority. On the other hand, Secretary of State Tillerson says that first, we have to get rid of ISIS, destroy ISIS, Assad can wait.
So, which is it? How does the president see this playing out in Syria?

MCMASTER: Well, both Secretary Tillerson and Ambassador Haley are right about this. What we really need to do, and what everyone who’s involved in this conflict needs to do is to do everything they can to resolve this civil war, to halt this humanitarian catastrophe, this political catastrophe, not only in Syria, but the catastrophe is affecting the greater Middle East, it’s affecting Europe and it’s a threat to the American people as well.

And so, to do that, what’s required is some kind of a political solution to that very complex problem. And what Ambassador Haley pointed out is it’s very difficult to understand how a political solution could result from the continuation of the Assad regime.

Tillerson has now clearly signalled that he has had enough, and his officials have apparently informed Haley, who is technically Tillerson’s subordinate, that she should clear her comments on contentious issues in future with the State Department before she makes them.

WTOP offers a similar story focusing on what it calls Haley’s “star power.” Ha!

  1. My question is “how did that radical dot head manage to get elected Gov of S. Carolina?” This stupid pig is as bad as Leslie Graham…I don’t get it!!!!!

  2. “And what Ambassador Haley pointed out is it’s very difficult to understand how a political solution could result from the continuation of the Assad regime.”
    (This comment brought to you by Jewish money on behalf of the real problem in the Middle-East: Israel.)

  3. Yes we in S.C. have been screwing up. But in our defense we have a major problem with uninformed Yankee invaders who ran here thinking they are conservative. Yes we are ashamed of Hailey. And soon light in his loafers Lindsey will be gone. Trey Gowdy will rise.

  4. “Rex Tillerson … has finally acted to assert his authority over Nikki Haley…”

    For such a long article, that Duran site said no more re HOW Tillerson has asserted authority over Haley, that I could find. He/she/it never mentioned it again all the way down that article, but only wrote about Haley’s bad deeds for the remainder.

    So what did Tillerson do?

    How did she get hired anyway? Payback by Trump because she stood up for him once or something (if I remember correctly). I remember his tweets saying she was “GREAT.” Blech!
