I’ve met many liberals who begrudgingly admit one thing about Donald Trump – he hires good and capable people.
And no matter how much those libs dislike the commander-in-chief, every one of them still respects his fiery choice for UN ambassador, the brilliant and courageous Nikki Haley.
Haley has guts.
She’s stood up to the UN before, and she’s had to do it again.
And while the United Nations loves to bash the United States of America, most of Haley’s efforts are spent defending the one other country the UN loves to hate – Israel.
Hating and hurting Israel is the UN’s full-time job.
Haley, naturally, has told the UN we aren’t going to take that crap anymore. And, naturally, she said so again recently.
But this time she said it for an absolutely wonderful reason – the United States is now the first country in the world officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
And we’re backing up our words by moving our embassy there. Which means this is the first time in the history of the United Nations where the United States gets to defend Israel with more than just a vote.
Now we’re defending Israel with action. Screw the votes.
I think it’s fitting that Haley and Trump are the people who get to shove that news in the delegates’ faces.
The Daily Caller reports:
Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday gave a firm defense of President Donald Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, lacing her remarks with strong words for the U.N.
She said Trump’s decision was “the right thing to do” and promised to defend Israel from what she sees as unfair attacks by U.N. members.
“We’re not going to put up with it anymore.”
Following @POTUS' historic announcement to move the US embassy to Jerusalem we remain committed to peace in the region.

I suppose libs might think that Haley is just posturing, for the sake of Israel. But hitting back at the UN isn’t just a way to get attention. It saves lives. Mideast lives, in fact.
“The U.N. has done much more damage to the prospects for Middle East peace than to advance them.”
Excellent summation, Haley. That’s exactly right.
Fact is, the real problem here is that the UN hinders the peace process. Trump does not, nor does his decision to move the embassy.
Haley, finally, is pointing out the real problem. It’s not us, and it’s not Israel.

You can probably guess the real culprit.
