Senate panel approves Haley nomination to United Nations

🕐 1 min read

WASHINGTON (AP) —The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has overwhelmingly approved South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley’s nomination to be U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

By voice vote, the panel recommended President Donald Trump’s selection of Haley to the full Senate. She is expected to be confirmed easily.

Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland, the committee’s top Democrat, backed Haley’s nomination. Cardin says what Haley lacks in foreign policy experience, “she makes up for in capability, intelligence, and a track record of building coalitions in South Carolina.”

During her confirmation hearing, Haley declared her support for moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. The shift may trigger increased violence in the Middle East.

Haley also took a hard line against Russia. She says she doesn’t think Moscow can be trusted right now.
