U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Thursday she shares incoming national security adviser John Bolton’s disdain for the world body and believes the two will work well together.Bolton, who was U.S. envoy to the United Nations for President George W. Bush, will become President Donald Trump’s national security adviser on Monday. He once said it would make no difference if 10 floors were knocked off the U.N. headquarters in New York.
“I know John Bolton well. I have gotten advice from him, I have talked to him. I know his disdain for the U.N. I share it,” Haley said at Duke University in North Carolina. “I think we’re going to have a great working relationship.”
Haley, a former South Carolina governor who is known for her blunt diplomacy at the United Nations, said she was not worried about Bolton telling her what to do.
