In a move that will deal a blow to the bogus liberal “war on women” meme, it is being reported that President-elect Donald Trump will appoint South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. If Haley is indeed the pick then all of the bitching and moaning about how Trump’s new administration is for old white men only will be debunked although since there has yet to be a black name picked out of the hat for a plum position the Democrats still have their prized race card to play ad nauseam.
According to the Charleston Post and Courier “Gov. Nikki Haley picked to become UN ambassador, sources say”:
President-elect Donald Trump is picking South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to become his U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, The Post and Courier has learned.
The move, expected Wednesday, continues the steep political rise of the daughter of Indian immigrants that started six years ago when the Bamberg native was elected as South Carolina’s first female and minority governor.
The planned nomination to the cabinet-level post, confirmed by multiple sources with knowledge of the decision, is likely to raise questions about Haley’s qualifications for a major foreign policy role since she has little diplomatic experience as state lawmaker and governor.
The 44-year-old’s chief foreign work centers on negotiating with international companies seeking economic development deals in the state and leading seven overseas trade missions as governor. Her husband, Michael, was deployed for nearly a year in Afghanistan with the S.C. National Guard in 2013.
Recent UN ambassadors typically have experience in presidential administrations, usually with the State Department or National Security Council. The post would be Haley’s first in the federal government.
The Trump administration is likely banking on Haley’s strong communication and problem-solving skills in being the U.S. representative at the 193-member United Nations in New York.
The governor won praise for her calm handling of the racially-charged Charleston church shooting and historic flood that took place just less than four months apart last year. After the shooting, she persuaded lawmakers to remove the Confederate battle flag that had flown on the Statehouse grounds for more than 50 years.
Haley would need to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. She would succeed Samantha Power, who worked on the National Security Council under President Barack Obama before becoming UN ambassador in 2013.
Picking Haley would leave the media smear machine flummoxed by depriving it of the line of attack that the incoming POTUS is a pussy-grabbing, chauvinist pig or if you are inclined to listen to bitter babbling loons like Harry Reid – a sex offender. Trump could double down on diversity by soon naming Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard – a Democrat – to a prominent slot in the new administration. Trump has met with Gabbard whose support of Bernie Sanders could offer a small bit of balm to the festering sores of leftist lepers and take a small bit of wind out of blowhard Bernie’s sails.
The added bonus of Trump’s choice of Governor Haley would be the ouster of screaming banshee warmonger Samantha Power who currently occupies the seat at the United Nations. Ms. Power – who is married to raving fascist loon Cass Sunstein – along with Susan Rice and Victoria Nuland would have served Hillary as a three-headed foreign policy monster longing to prove that they could be as violent a pack of killers as any of the boys so her ouster is a damned good thing for those wanting peace.
There is no word on the official timing of the announcement.
