South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, President-elect’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was sharply critical of outgoing Ambassador Samantha Power’s decision to abstain from voting on a Security Council resolution in December condemning Israeli settlements, calling it a “terrible mistake” and a “sad day for America.”
“As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” Trump tweeted after the Dec. 23, 2016 vote.
“U.N. Resolution 2334 was a terrible mistake, making a peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority even harder to achieve,” Haley testified during her confirmation hearing Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.
“Nowhere has the U.N.’s failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally, Israel,” she told committee members.
