Nikki Haley says the UN loves Trump: ‘The media got this so wrong’

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley

said reporters got it wrong when they said U.N. leaders laughed at President Trump after he said he has accomplished more than most U.S. presidents.

After that comment at the U.N. General Assembly, a murmur ran through the crowd, prompting Trump to react by saying, ” so true.” Attendees broke into laughter then, and many press reports said the group was laughing at Trump’s claim.

But Haley said the audience was laughing because Trump was being so honest with them.

The media got this so wrong,” Haley said on Fox News.

“I deal with these leaders every single day. I know exactly how they think,” she said. “Do they love America? No. Do they respect America? Now they do.”

“When he said that, they loved how honest he is, and it’s not diplomatic, and they find it funny,” Haley said.

She said U.N. leaders aren’t used to being spoken too so honestly, and were “taken aback” by Trump’s remarks. She also said the U.N. crowd loves being around Trump.

“All day yesterday, they were falling over themselves to get a picture with him, to talk about how great his speech was, how strong it was,” she said.

“Whether he said good things about them or not, they love that he’s honest with them, and they’ve never seen anything like it,” she said. “And so there’s a respect there.”

“I saw that the media was trying to make it something disrespectful. That’s not what it was,” Haley said. “They love to be with him, that’s the only time you’ll see that entire chamber standing room only.”

U.N. Laughs at US

President Trump on Tuesday strode to the podium at the United Nations General Assembly in New York City to “share the extraordinary progress” the U.S. has made during his time in office. The reaction he received from the assembled world leaders wasn’t what he was expecting.

“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump proclaimed. There was a smattering of audible laughter from the assembled diplomats, representing 193 countries.

(CNN) President Donald Trump’s touting of how his administration has accomplished more than any — yes, any — past administration in its first two years is one of his most consistent applause lines in his campaign patter.
“I don’t believe there has been any administration in the history of this country that has done more in two years — and we’re not even up to two years yet — than our administration,” Trump said last week during a campaign speech in Las Vegas — while reading a literal paper list of those accomplishments.
“Nobody has done what this administration has done in terms of getting things passed and getting things through,” he told a group of sheriffs earlier this month.

His supporters love the line: Despite all of the losers and haters, Trump is MAGA-ing!

Which brings us to Tuesday morning — and Trump’s speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said, as he does.
“So true,” said Trump, clearly caught by surprise by the laughter. “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s OK,” he added to more laughter and some applause.

Before we go any further let me be clear: I wasn’t in the room. I was watching it live on TV from Washington. But, watching on television, the perception of those few seconds was clear: The gathered world leaders — or at least some of them — were laughing at Trump’s contention that he had done more in two years than any previous American administration ever.
Which makes some sense given that the claim seems, on its face ridiculous.

Trump cuts a lonely figure at the U.N.

On his return to the U.N. General Assembly, President Trump will surprise few world leaders with his sharp rhetoric. His speech today is expected to underscore a now-familiar message: American sovereignty and supremacy are not to be challenged, nor is Washington’s right to act unilaterally on the world stage.

President Trump’s address before the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday will underscore a now-familiar message: American sovereignty and supremacy are not to be challenged, nor is Washington’s right to act unilaterally on the world stage.

Trump, as readers of Today’s WorldView know, has acted according to those principles since taking office last year. He has sparked trade disputes with close allies, cast doubt upon traditional alliances in the West, withdrawn the United States from global agreements such as the Paris climate accords and upset the apple cart at multilateral summits like this year’s meeting of the Group of Seven nations. His public appearances have often sounded like the campaign rally he held last week in Las Vegas, where he attacked the “globalism” of his political enemies and linked liberal internationalism to economic hardship at home.

“The forces opposing us in Washington are the same people who squandered trillions of dollars overseas, who sacrificed our sovereignty, who shipped away our jobs, who oversaw the greatest transfer of wealth in the history of the world,” Trump said. “In 2016, the American people voted to reject this corrupt globalism. Hey, I’m the president of the United States — I’m not the president of the globe.”

Such rhetoric, when delivered from the dais of the General Assembly chamber, was a shock last year. But as Trump makes his second appearance at the United Nations as president, no world leader or foreign dignitary will be surprised to hear more of the same.

The key question is whether Trump is an outlier — or the new normal.

[Verse 1]
Do unto others as they’ve done to you
But what the hell is this world coming to?
Blow the universe into nothingness
Nuclear warfare shall lay us to rest

[Chorus]
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear
We all shall die

[Verse 2]
Time is like a fuse, short and burning fast
Armageddon’s here, like said in the past

[Chorus]
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

[Verse 3]
Soon to fill our lungs, the hot winds of death
The gods are laughing, so take your last breath

[Chorus]
Fight fire with fire
Ending is near
Fight fire with fire
Bursting with fear

Fight fire with fire, fight fire with fire
Fight fire with fire, fight fire with fire
Fight fire with fire, fight fire with fire
Fight fire with fire, fight fire with fire!
Fight!
