Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has warned that a Democratic victory in November’s presidential election could undo all the progress made under the Trump administration, especially with respect to Israel and the Iran nuclear program.
Haley spoke in an online town hall forum hosted by the Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) that the group later posted on its social media feeds.
Haley said President Donald Trump took office and wanted to make it clear, especially at the UN, that America had Israel’s back.
“He wanted everyone to know that Israel was our friend.”
“When he [Trump] saw the fact that we had to start partnering with Israel in a way that we showed not just the UN, but every multilateral organization, that if you’re gonna mess with Israel you have to mess with the United States – [it was] hugely important,” Haley said.
“Look at the difference between Joe Biden and President Trump,” Haley said. “Who is the person that moved the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem? Who is the person that pulled out of the Iran deal? Who’s the person that allowed me to call out Hamas for the first time in the UN?”
