She said that since the 2016 presidential election the United Nations had started to "respect" the USA again.
"I don't agree with the president on everything", Haley wrote in her September 7 op-ed. When there is disagreement, there is a right way and a wrong way to address it.

Nikki Haley on Tuesday abruptly resigned as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, a move she said she had talked about with President Donald Trump for months.
