Outgoing US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed the UN during a fiery speech Thursday, saying the world body was guilty of enabling Cuba’s brutal communist regime and allowing Castro family to remain in power.
Haley unloaded on the United Nations after every member state -excluding Israel and the United States- voted to support a resolution that called for the US to lift its economic embargo on Cuba.
“As this resolution is currently constructed, the United States will oppose it again today,” she said. “Cuba and its allies do the same thing every year. They propose a resolution blaming Cuba’s poverty, repression and lack of freedom on the United States. They falsely blame America for all kinds of evil things, even genocide.”
The final vote was 189-2.

BUSTED! NY Times Suggests Nikki Haley Bought $52k Curtains, Actually Purchased by Obama Admin
The New York Times found itself in hot-water from readers across the country Friday after the newspaper published an extremely misleading headline regarding UN ambassador Nikki Haley.
The Times published an article Thursday titled “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701,” suggesting the ambassador purchased lavish curtains for her New York City residence.
“The State Department bought the custom, mechanized curtains for Ms. Haley’s New York resident during a time of cost-cutting,” adds the author.
It isn’t until six paragraphs later that the author admits the window dressings were actually purchased in 2016 and authorized by the Obama administration.
“This seems like a pretty important paragraph that we should get to the bottom of before calling them ‘Nikki Haley’s $52,000 curtains,’” writes a reporter for the Washington Post.

“We are going to fight for Venezuela and we are going to continue doing it until Maduro is gone!” yelled Haley.
“We need your voices to be loud and I will tell you, the US voice is going to be loud,” she added. “What we saw is what no one should live … while Maduro is eating in nice restaurants.”
Haley’s comments come days after Maduro was seen dining on $100 steaks and smoking lavish cigars during a recent trip to Asia to secure aid for his starving citizens.
