U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley offered a very harsh statement on relations between the U.S. and Russia, and then spoke out about the president’s controversial summit with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin. . .
“How do you feel about some of what he has done here because it is unconventional to basically do some of this, I know this has happened before, especially with Putin, but the way he went about this, he’s taken a lot of shots and criticism back home,” [David] Brody asked. . .
“Well, first of all, we don’t trust Russia,” Haley responded forcefully, “we don’t trust Putin, we never will, they’re never gonna be our friend, that’s just a fact.”
“But what I do think is, whether it’s the president sitting down with Kim [Jong Un], or whether the president sits down with Putin, those are things that have to happen,” she continued. “You can’t get to the end of the other side if you don’t have those conversations.” . . .
Haley defended the Helsinki summit, saying that it “was something that was a long time coming there were a lot of grievances that needed to be aired, there were a lot of challenges that we needed to discuss, and I think the president did that.” (Read more from “Nikki Haley Speaks out on Putin Summit and She Does Not Hold Back” HERE)
