On November 23, then President-elect Donald Trump announced his intent to nominate SC Governor Nikki Haley as his Ambassador to the United Nations (see Trump to Nominate SC Governor Nicki Haley as U.N. Ambassador). She had her confirmation hearing on January 18 and was confirmed by the Senate in a 96-4 vote on January 24. The following day, she was sworn into office by Vice President Pence. She made her first appearance before the press as USUN ambassador on January 27 prior to presenting her credentials. She made a huge splash with her opening salvo: “For those who don’t have our back, we’re taking names – we will make points to respond to that accordingly.” A short while later, a diplomatic dustup.
This round-up is a bit late, but we want this up for future reference. It’s not even a month yet, stuff could happen here, there, everywhere … tonight, tomorrow … heck, there’s “breaking news” every 5 minutes!
