Nikki Haley at AIPAC 2018 – Full Speech

Full Transcript:

Amb. Nikki Haley: Thank you so much. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you so much. You guys are amazing. Thank you so much.

It’s so good to see so many friends and I’m honored to be able to say that when I come to AIPAC I am with friends. You know, at the United Nations we sometimes don’t have many friends.

I remember last year when we had the vote about America’s principled opposition to the Castro dictatorship in Cuba. The vote went against us 191 to 2. The only two ‘no’ votes – you guessed it – were the United States and Israel. But I always say quality is more than quantity.

Shortly after the 2016 election, President-elect Trump called me to talk about serving in his administration. We had a meeting at Trump Tower and we had some good discussions about a variety of issues. Long story short, his team called me a couple of days later and said he liked me to serve as Ambassador to the United Nations.

I said I’m a governor; I don’t know anything about the United Nations. We went back and forth on a few things and the clincher was when I told the president, you know I won’t be a wallflower or a talking head. I have to be able to say what I think. Without any hesitation, President Trump said, Nikki, that’s exactly why I want you to do this.
