South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has reportedly accepted President-elect Donald Trump's offer to be the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Diane Hodges reports.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley will reportedly be the next U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. NBC says she has reportedly accepted the offer from President-elect Donald Trump. It comes despite the fact that Haley supported first Marco Rubio and then Ted Cruz during the Republican battle for a White House nominee. But after meeting with Trump last week, she described him as a "friend." The 44-year-old governor is the daughter of immigrants from India, and is considered a rising star in the Republican party. In 2015, she drew national attention when she called for the removal of the Confederate flag from state buildings after a horrific mass shooting by a white man at an African American church. She's also the first woman Trump has named to a cabinet-level post.
