‘All hat and no cattle’ Nikki Haley set to cash in after disastrous U.N. stint (Video)

US President Trump described the outgoing US ambassador to the UN, Nikki Haley as an  “extraordinary person” who is “going to make a lot of money” in the private sector.

Haley resigned from her UN post on Tuesday, but is likely to stay in her UN position until the end of the year, before her successor could be nominated and confirmed by the Senate.

President Trump told the press after Haley’s resignation…

“Nikki is going to be here until the end of the year. Nikki is our friend. She has been great. I want whoever it is to spend some time with Nikki before Nikki goes out and gets herself a job, and hopefully does — she’s going to make a lot of money. And I think Nikki will come back in some form too. But she’s an extraordinary person, good person.”

Trump told reporters that he was looking at four or five different candidates to replace Haley, with the likely frontrunner being Dina Powell, the former deputy national security adviser to Trump.

When POTUS was asked about the timing of Haley’s resignation before the mid-term elections, Trump said nothing much should be read into it…

“There’s no good time. I mean, there is be no good time. She told me about this a long time ago. And, frankly, it’s almost four weeks. So, it’s not that bad. No, I don’t think so at all. I thought it was very elegantly done.”

RT CrossTalk host Peter Lavelle and The Duran’s Alex Christoforou discuss Nikki Haley’s departure from the United Nations, and reflect on her 19 month tenure as US Ambassador to the UN.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley’s surprise announcement to resign by the end of the year sent shock waves across Washington’s foreign policy landscape Tuesday, triggering speculation that President Trump is gearing up for a new hard-line shift on international affairs as he heads toward his third year in office.

With Mr. Trump saying he’ll nominate a successor within three weeks, foreign diplomats are already speculating that the president is bent on naming someone who’ll take his “America First” agenda toward the United Nations to heights even Ms. Haley may have balked at during her run as ambassador over the past 20 months.

“A lot of U.N. officials and foreign diplomats will fret that Trump will select a much more hard-line unilateralist to replace Haley,” said Richard Gowan, a Columbia University professor and expert on U.N. politics.

Others say Mr. Trump, who claimed Tuesday to have known for months of Ms. Haley’s intention to leave the post by the end of 2018, decided suddenly to fast-track her resignation to ensure a successor can be confirmed quickly by the Republican-controlled Senate ahead of a difficult and uncertain midterm vote next month.

“This administration is all politics all the time, so it wouldn’t surprise me that they wanted to get ahead of the election,” said Gordon Adams, a long-time foreign policy commentator who teaches at American University. While Mr. Adams added that “it’s not clear at all why [Ms. Haley] resigned” and “it’s almost impossible to read meaning into it,”
