Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley unloaded on CNN’s Jim Acosta during a press conference Monday; issuing a serious “fact check” to the anti-Trump journalist after making several false claims.
Pompeo and Haley were speaking with reporters in New York City when Acosta asked whether the ambassador had ever heard secret rumors about invoking the 25th amendment to remove the President.

“I said yesterday on the Sunday shows that, literally, I have never once been in the White House where that conversation has happened,” Haley said. “I’m not aware of any cabinet members that are even talking about that. It is completely and totally absurd. No one is questioning the president at all. If anything, we’re trying to keep up the pace with him.”
HALEY ON FIRE: US Ambassador TORCHES UN Over Palestinian Turmoil
US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley slammed Arab member states over their relationship with the Palestinian Authority Tuesday, saying anti-Israeli rhetoric was having a disastrous impact on their “streets and communities.”
Haley was speaking at the United Nations Security Council this week when she called-out Arab nations for their “never-ending” speeches surrounding Israel; adding if “those words were useful” Palestinians “would not be facing the desperate conditions” we see today.
“If those words were useful in the schools, the hospitals, and the streets of their communities, the Palestinian people would not be facing the desperate conditions we are discussing here today,” she said. “But talk is cheap.”
“Since , the United States has provided over $6 billion (with a ‘b’) dollars in bilateral assistance to the Palestinians. How much have the Arab countries – some of whom are wealthy – how much have they given to the Palestinians? It does not come anywhere close to what the United States has done,” she added.
“We are not fools. If we extend a hand in friendship and generosity, we do not expect our hand to be bitten. And as we extend our hand, we also expect others to extend theirs as well,” said the Ambassador.
HALEY UNCHAINED: Nikki Haley GRILLS Palestinian President at UN
US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley grilled Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas at a UN Security Council meeting Thursday, blasting the leader for bolstering “outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories” regarding Israel and the United States.
According to Fox News, Haley launched her attack on Abbas at a high-level meeting covering the Middle East peace process, slamming the Palestinian President for attempting to boot the US from negotiations with their Israeli counterparts.
“We will not accept for the U.S. to be a mediator, because after what they have done to us — a believer shall not be stung twice in the same place,” Abbas told the New York Times.
“He rejected any American role in peace talks. He insulted the American president. He called for suspending recognition of Israel,” said the UN Ambassador. “He invoked an ugly and fictional past, reaching back to the 17th century to paint Israel as a colonialist project engineered by European powers.”
“A speech that indulges in outrageous and discredited conspiracy theories is not the speech of a person with the courage and will to seek real peace,” she added.
