“The timing seems odd.” – Molly Roberts, Political Opinions Writer, Washington Post
Host Ronn Owens talked with Molly Roberts, Political Opinions Writer for Washington Post, about this morning’s surprise announcement that Nikki Haley will be resigning as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations by the end of this year.
They discussed the timing (she had apparently told the President she would be doing this earlier this year), how she was viewed by the diplomats at the U.N. (very well, despite political differences), and her possible political future (she will be supporting President Trump’s probably re-election run in 2020 and has no current plans to run herself in 2024).
