A long article in Politico suggests that Nikki Haley should not wait for the future but should challenge Trump in 2020. The article begins: “The first time I met Nikki Haley, in 2010, I was a columnist for the Sun News in Myrtle Beach, S.C., and she was a little-known state legislator vying for the governor’s mansion […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Haley’s Comet Triggers Soothsayers

 
President Trump an UN Ambassador Nikki Haley at the UN in September, 2018 / shutterstock.com

President Trump and Ambassador Haley had a joint press availability in the White House, which triggered rampant, fact-free speculation in conservative media space. We were even treated to self-appointed guardians of TruMAGA recycling the old innuendos about President Trump being subverted by falsely converted NeverTrumpers, his daughter, and his son-in-law. The truth is so much simpler, but relies on experience unfamiliar to most of the nattering class. It’s about the Benjamins and real leadership; in the end, the sun will come out tomorrow.

The Haleys have no family fortune, except in the blessings of family. It appears she has always been the primary breadwinner. Michael Haley met Nikki in college in 1989. Today, 29 years later, he is a captain in the South Carolina Army National Guard. Michael Haley only joined the National Guard in 2006.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Does Trump Have a Plan for Israel and the Palestinians?

 

When Trump first started to campaign, his statements about the Israel-Palestinian conflict were contradictory and unclear. I think he was trying to find his footing on this complicated and controversial subject. If we look at the journey we’ve all taken with him, we might draw some interesting projections about the future. I’d like to reflect on some of the highlights of his candidacy and his time as President regarding his actions on Israel and the Palestinians.

During his candidacy, he told the Republican National Convention regarding the peace process, “I alone can fix it.” But The Atlantic pointed out:

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America serve up all crazy martinis today.

They also get a kick out of Democrats who have […]

What options does the U.S. have to stop Kim Jong Un from obtaining a nuclear-tipped intercontinental ballistic missile? Short of the U.S. holding its own Dennis Rodman hostage to bring North Korea’s ‘Little Despot’ (short and stout) to the bargaining table, President Donald Trump’s possible solutions go from horrible to horrifying.

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Amb. Nikki Haley discusses considerations on US policy toward Iran

 

On this AEI Events Podcast, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley outlined some of the Trump administration’s key considerations in assessing Iranian compliance – an important matter given that next month, President Trump will need to announce whether he finds Iran complying with the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, better known as the Iran deal.

US law requires the president to certify every 90 days not only that Iran has not materially breached the deal but also that suspending sanctions against Tehran is appropriate and proportionate to Tehran’s behavior and is vital to US national security interests. Therefore, even if Iran has not surpassed the nuclear deal’s limit on uranium enrichment, the Trump administration could decide not to certify the deal if it violates one of the latter requirements. In such a scenario, Ambassador Haley emphasized that Congress would then have 60 days to decide whether to reimpose sanctions on Iran.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Nikki Haley: Pushing Back Hard on the UN

 

The United Nations is not on my list of favorite organizations. In fact, I’ve written an OP about leaving, if not disbanding, the institution. But now that Nikki Haley is the US ambassador to the United Nations, I’m having second thoughts.

In her short time in the UN, she has already ruffled some feathers. She’s proposed making cuts in key areas—“Everybody knows there’s fat at the UN. Everybody knows there’s fat in the peacekeeping missions. So that’s why we’re taking [a review of] each one.”
