Nikki Haley is proving to be a formidable presence as the US Ambassador to the United Nations. Haley just blocked a call for an international investigation into Israel’s tactics in clashes with Gaza protesters, and blamed Iran and terrorist proxies for causing the violence. She also walked out of a UN Security Council Meeting before the Palestinian Representative to the council gave his remarks. This lady means business! It’s almost like President Trump is right there on her shoulder.

Haley then walked out of the chamber before the Palestinian representative to the council gave his remarks. “We condemn in the strongest terms this odious massacre committed by Israel occupation forces,” Ambassador Riyad Mansour said.
