First Daughter Ivanka Trump finally has put the kibosh on all the talk today about her possibly replacing Nikki Haley as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Haley made the surprise announcement this morning she would leave her post at year’s end. The rumor started early in the day, even before Trump held his big pop-up presser at the White House to push the storyline he’s known for six months about Haley’s plan to leave her post at the end of 2018. (Later in the day…

Nikki Haley to Resign as Trump’s UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley announced Tuesday that she was resigning as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations by the end of the year.

The former governor of South Carolina offered no specific reason for why she was leaving but she shot down speculation that it was to prepare to challenge her current boss for the White House. “No, I am not running for 2020,” she said. “I look forward to supporting the president in the next election.”

Haley also offered effusive praise for the first family, singling out Trump son-in-law and presidential adviser Jared Kushner.

“Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands,” said Haley. “What I have done working with him on the Middle East peace plan, it is so unbelievably well done.”

Trump too offered praise for his “friend.”

“Nikki Haley, ambassador to the United Nation has been very special to me. She’s done an incredible job,” said Trump. “She’s somebody who gets it. She’s been at the United Nations from the beginning.”

Haley has served in the position since January 2017 and was widely seen as having a good working relationship with President Trump.

It was not immediately clear what precipitated her departure or who might replace her but she has been a rare official in Trump’s cabinet who has voiced criticism of some of his more extreme views — particularly during the 2016 campaign.

Haley took a notable stand at the United Nations for her work demanding Russia be held to account for election meddling and their international actions. She has also regularly sounded the alarm about atrocities in Syria and played a role in the U.S. airstrikes on that country after the regime launched chemical weapons attack on its own people in April.

Haley has also spoken up in favor of women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct, saying that they should be heard.

“They should be heard, and they should be dealt with,” she told CBS in an interview last December. “And I think we heard from them prior to the election. And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up.”

NY Times Corrects ‘Unfair’ Report About Pricey Curtains for UN Ambassador Nikki Haley

The New York Times on Friday corrected a story that it said created an “unfair impression” that Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley spent more than $50,000 on posh new curtains at her official New York City residence.

The original story said the State Department paid for “customized and mechanized curtains for the picture windows in Nikki R. Haley’s official residence” to the tune of $52,701.

The problem, though, was that the story noted several paragraphs later the lavish expense was commissioned before Haley was appointed in early 2017.

“A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said,” the Times noted in its story.

In a rare editors note added to top of the story, the paper wrote: “An earlier version of this article and headline created an unfair impression about who was responsible for the purchase in question.

“While Nikki R. Haley is the current ambassador to the United Nations, the decision on leasing the ambassador’s residence and purchasing the curtains was made during the Obama administration, according to current and former officials.”

The editor’s note continued: “The article should not have focused on Ms. Haley, nor should a picture of her have been used. The article and headline have now been edited to reflect those concerns, and the picture has been removed.”

Soon after publishing late Thursday, the story and its initial headline — “Nikki Haley’s View of New York Is Priceless. Her Curtains? $52,701” — was widely circulated.

Many on the left viewed it as another example of lavish spending of taxpayer dollars by another Trump administration official.

Colbert Has a ‘Fun Fact’ for Trump: ‘Not All Women Are Under Legally Binding Agreements About What They Can Say’ (Video)

One of the bigger topics of the week that Stephen Colbert decided to talk about in his “Late Show” monologue Wednesday night was Donald Trump’s continually wishy-washy stance on Russia — from his briefly hardline position that he took before ordering the military to bomb Syria last week to his refusal to impose sanctions this week.

Specifically, Colbert wanted to talk about UN ambassador Nikki Haley, a Trump appointee who has been in a bit of a public scuffle with Trump over the Russia issue of late, most recently when she went on “Face the Nation” on Sunday to declare that sanctions were definitely incoming and the announcement would be made soon.

“It turns out no one made the announcement, because Trump scrapped any new sanctions against Russia, overruling his advisers. We tried to get a follow-up from Nikki Haley, but it’s so hard to reach her under that bus,” Colbert joked. “Apparently, when Trump saw Haley on TV saying Russia sanctions were coming, the president grew angry. And you wouldn’t like him when he’s angry — or any other time.

“And this is not the first time Trump has been mad at Haley over Russia. when he saw her criticizing Russia on TV, he started yelling at the screen, ‘Who wrote that for her? Who wrote that for her?’ Fun fact, Mr. President: not all women are under legally binding agreements about what they can say. Some of them just get to talk.”

Colbert then detailed how this conflict escalated a bit when Trump’s new economic adviser Larry Kudlow commented that “there might have been some momentary confusion” for Haley with her statement about the sanctions. To which Haley declared, “I don’t get confused.”

“Nikki Haley! Good for you, Nikki! Yeah! You hear that? Nikki Haley does not get confused! Except for that time she joined the Trump administration. Not sure what she was thinking then,” Colbert quipped.

Also Read: Colbert: Trump Is ‘Like a Zeppelin – Full of Hot Air and We’re All Waiting for Him to Go Down in Flames’ (Video)

“Trump may be angry because he accidentally appointed someone competent, and there are ramblings that Trump has grown suspicious of Haley’s ambition, and Republicans are whispering ‘about the prospect of an alliance between Ms. Haley and vice president Mike Pence, possibly to run as a ticket in 2020.’ That’s absurd. Mike pence can’t be on a ticket with a woman who’s not his wife. He can’t do it.”

Michael Wolff Walks Out of TV Interview After Host Asks About Trump Affair

Michael Wolff walks out of interview claiming a broken ear piece after @9NewsAUS asks him about his insinuation that Donald Trump is having an affair.

Host offers open skepticism on-air

Michael Wolff abruptly ended a tough interview on Australian television over the weekend, removing his earpiece and walking out of the studio.

On set with Australia’s “Today” show over the weekend, the “Fire and Fury” author said his earpiece wasn’t working and that he would be unable to answer any further questions. The device had worked perfectly up until Wolff was asked whether he wanted to apologize to President Donald Trump for insinuating that he was currently having an extramarital affair.

“Do you owe the President and the First Lady an apology,” asked host Ben Fordham.

“I can’t hear you,” said Wolff. “I’m not getting anything.”

“We were hearing each other well just before,” Fordham said while voicing skepticism.

A technician came to assist Wolff with the earpiece, but the author walked off set before it could be attended to.

“Mr. Wolff was hearing me before, but he’s not hearing me anymore so it looks like the interview may be 0ver,” said Fordham.

The show’s anchors openly doubted the veracity of Wolff’s earpiece claim, and the program’s official Twitter account discounted the author as well.

“We’ve got an update for you on our interview with @MichaelWolffNYC,” the show said. “Footage from our London studio would suggest that there were no audio problems and Wolff had no problem hearing @BenFordham’s question!”

Despite a number of factual errors, Wolff’s “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” received a widespread coverage. That changed after he suggested during an interview with Bill Maher that Trump was secretly having an affair with a woman named in the book — later widely assumed to be United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley.

Since the Maher interview, Wolff has made a number of appearances overseas. In addition to his Australian appearance, Wolff was grilled during an appearance in the Netherlands, where he was forced to downplay his earlier Trump affair claims.

“I do not know if the president is having an affair,” he said during an interview Thursday with Dutch journalist Twan Huys.

Nikki Haley: Talk of Trump Affair ‘Disgusting’

UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has dismissed “Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff’s hints that she’s having an affair with Donald Trump as “disgusting” and “highly offensive.”

While Wolff has admitted he can’t prove the affair, he said last week on “Real Time With Bill Maher” that readers should pay close attention to a section near the end of the book that hints at an affair between her and Trump.

“It is absolutely not true,” Haley said on POLITICO’s Women Rule podcast. “It is highly offensive, and it is disgusting. It amazes me what people will do and the lies they will say for money and power… I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there. He says that I’ve been talking a lot with the president in the Oval about my political future. I’ve never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him.”

Also Read: Michael Wolff’s Trump Affair Clues Point to Nikki Haley, and We Hate This Story (Column)

On “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday, Wolff said a passage near the end of his book hints at the affair.

“Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph you’re going to say bingo,” Wolff told Maher. At first cagey, he said it was something he is “absolutely sure of, but was so incendiary that I just didn’t have the ultimate proof.”

Wolff hinted that the passage was near the book. Careful readers identified a section where he wrote:

By October, however, many on the president’s staff took particular notice of one of the few remaining Trump opportunists: Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador. Haley — ‘as ambitious as Lucifer,” in the characterization of one member of the senior staff — had concluded that Trump’s tenure would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with requisite submission, could be his heir apparent. Haley had courted and befriended Ivanka, and Ivanka had brought her into the family circle, where she had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers.

The book said that Trump “had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a political future.”

Wolff cited one “senior Trumper” who said the problem with Trump mentoring Haley “is that she is so much smarter than him.”

See Video: ‘Real Time’: Michael Wolff Hints at Current Trump Infidelity Hidden in Bombshell Book

Haley also served as the 116th governor of South Carolina and was the state’s first female governor. She campaigned for Marco Rubio and then supported Ted Cruz, and was one of Trump’s earliest Republican critics. When she gave the Republican response to President Obama’s final State of the Union address, she seemed to criticize Trump when she said: “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices.” Trump responded by calling her “weak” on immigration.

Still, she opted to join Trump’s administration when offered the UN job.

Wolff has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

Michael Wolff’s Trump Affair Clues Point to Nikki Haley, and We Hate This Story (Column)

“Fire and Fury” author Michael Wolff’s accusation that President Trump is currently having an affair set off online speculation Saturday about who the other party might be. Based on Wolff’s clues, it appears he’s making insinuations about UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

A quick side note before we go further: This is gross on every level. We don’t have any evidence whatsoever to suggest that what Wolff is hinting at is true, so please consider this a story about an author making an accusation he admits he can’t prove.

That said, Wolff went on “Real Time With Bill Maher” Friday to provide some encouragement to readers who may have given up halfway through “Fire and Fury” when he said a passage near the end of his book hints at the affair.

“Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph you’re going to say bingo,” Wolff told Maher.

We’ve read the book. While there are icky descriptions about Trump’s behavior with his spokeswoman, Hope Hicks, they come before the book’s midway point. (“You’re the best piece of tail he’ll ever have!” Trump is quoted as telling Hicks about an ex, which Wolff says sent  Hicks “running from the room.”)

The only passage we’ve found near the end of the book that references a Trump relationship with a woman who isn’t his wife or daughter is this one:

By October, however, many on the president’s staff took particular notice of one of the few remaining Trump opportunists: Nikki Haley, the UN ambassador. Haley — ‘as ambitious as Lucifer,” in the characterization of one member of the senior staff — had concluded that Trump’s tenure would last, at best, a single term, and that she, with requisite submission, could be his heir apparent. Haley had courted and befriended Ivanka, and Ivanka had brought her into the family circle, where she had become a particular focus of Trump’s attention, and he of hers.

Bingo? Wolff adds that Trump “had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a political future.”

Wolff cited one “senior Trumper” who said the problem with Trump mentoring Haley “is that she is so much smarter than him.”

The White House, Haley and Wolff did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

There are many problems with this theory, aside from Wolff going on national television to accuse people of having affairs. Among them: Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, was one of Trump’s early Republican critics.

She campaigned for Marco Rubio and then supported Ted Cruz. When she gave the Republican response to President Obama’s final State of the Union address, she seemed to criticize Trump when she said: “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices.” Trump responded by calling her “weak” on immigration.

Trump also tweeted:

The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 1, 2016

Like many Republicans, however, Haley signed on to work with Trump after his election.

Haley is a married child of Indian immigrants who turned 46 today. Happy birthday.

Here are some tweets from people who read between the lines:

In just the past two days Michael Wolff intimated Trump & Nikki Haley are having an affair, a porn star said Trump asked her to spank his bottom with a Forbes Magazine, Glenn Simpson accused Trump of money-laundering & cavorting with Russian mobsters & the government shutdown.

It sure sounds like Michael Wolff just accused Donald Trump of having an affair with Nikki Haley https://t.co/llBbjbmC2T

— Palmer Report (@PalmerReport) January 20, 2018

At this point it’s mere speculation, but Michael Wolff has said that a paragraph toward the back of FIRE AND FURY reveals who Trump’s current mistress is (an affair that opens the president up to blackmail) and many online are insisting that THIS is the paragraph Wolff refers to: pic.twitter.com/qVRiPjZ5yX

And a rebuttal:

I doubt Nikki Haley is having an affair with Trump. I’m sure Trump’s lover is white. https://t.co/O4YkaVOoDI

‘Cries From Syria’ Director Responds to Nikki Haley’s Deleted Tweet, Asks if the UN Ambassador Is ‘Being Told What to Say’

Haley praised the documentary in a tweet, then deleted it days later.

U.S. Ambassador the United Nations Nikki Haley praised “Cries From Syria” on Twitter last week, writing that Evgeny Afineevsky’s documentary “gives a telling history of the fight for freedoms & human rights in Syria from a brutal dictatorship.” A few days later, she deleted the tweet without explanation. Haley has yet to comment on her reasons for doing so, but Afineevsky provided IndieWire with a statement:

“Nikki Haley’s deleted tweet about ‘Cries From Syria’ is unsettling. Since her appointment, she has been dedicated to fighting against injustice for the Syrian people. As a mother, she stood for Syrian kids and spoke out against chemical attacks, and called out the criminal Assad regime. So why, when she has already recognized the atrocities of the Syrian dictatorship, would she delete a tweet in support of a film that also details these atrocities?

“If we are a democracy that prides itself on freedom of speech, why would a government official expressing herself about a relevant film be a problem? Are our government officials being told what to say and how to say it? When I was shooting this film on the ground in and around Syria, I knew my First Amendment rights would allow me to bring this story to the world without fear of censorship.

“Despite the threats to my life, I cherished—and continue to cherish—the freedom of expression afforded to me as a U.S. citizen. I was born in Russia, and I know what happens when these rights no longer come freely.”

The film, which premiered at Sundance, is now available to watch on HBO. A screenshot of Haley’s now-deleted tweet can be found below:

Ivanka Trump Sits in for President at G20, Enraging His Critics: ‘This Is How a Crime Family Works’

Saturday became “sit in for Daddy at work” day when Ivanka Trump temporarily stepped in for President Trump at the G20 Summit while he attended a meeting with Indonesian President Joko Widodo.

Although UK Prime Minister Theresa May’s aide briefly took her place while she stepped out, it was Trump’s action that fired up critics, sparking accusations of nepotism when the president’s daughter took a seat between May and Chinese President Xi Jinping during a session titled “Partnership with Africa, Migration and Health.”

According to the Agence France-Presse, a White House official emphasized that “when other leaders stepped out, their seats were also briefly filled by others.”

“Well, I can tell you what her role has been in reference to what I’ve done as there are times she’s sat into meetings with me and the president before,” United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said on Saturday’s “Face the Nation.”

“If it’s involving women entrepreneurship, if it’s involving poverty or famine. She’s got her certain issues that she focuses on, and when those things come up, then that’s where she is and that’s what she likes to focus on. I think she sees herself as part of a public servant family, and she doesn’t want to waste this time by not putting forward some effort to try and help the world.”

Haley went on to add, “I think that’s what she’s doing is fighting for small businesses in our country, fighting for women entrepreneurs, fighting to make sure that we are not only being just good with the United States, but we’re also internationally doing our part, whether it’s poverty or famine or whether we see it’s migration. And so those are the things I think that she’s working on, and I think she’s been very well accepted nationally and internationally.”

Further fanning the flames of the G20 event was a photograph a Russian official tweeted of Ivanka Trump sitting between the powerful duo of May and Xi Jinping. The image was subsequently taken down, but not before it went viral.

Donald Trump Is Still the Las Vegas Favorite to Win 2020 Election

Hope you’re getting used to this whole President Trump thing, because we may get eight years of the guy.

Online sportsbook Bovada has named Donald Trump the frontrunner to win the 2020 Presidential Election. That makes sense, since he’s the sitting Commander-in-Chief and no one else is. Plus, it’s way too early for serious opposition to declare their candidacy.

That said, it’s a little odd that the very same oddsmaker also has the 45th POTUS more likely than not to leave his post before finishing out this term. Those lines came out immediately following a particularly bonkers press conference, of course.

So if Trump truly craps out, who are the next-most likely individuals to take the nation’s top executive slot in 2020?

For starters, Elizabeth Warren is 8/1 (bet $100 to win $800), Vice President Mike Pence is 9/1, and former First Lady Michelle Obama’s sitting at 14/1.

Last year’s loser Hillary Clinton is 18/1, with Bernie Sanders behind her at 20/1. Other notable politicians include Paul Ryan at 25/1 and Cory Booker at 26/1. Joe Biden, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are all 30/1.

And then there are the entertainers, because all bets to lead the free world are now officially off, no pun intended.

Readers can bet on Oprah Winfrey at 66/1. Or can we interest you in George Clooney, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Leonardo DiCaprio or Kanye West? They’re all listed at 125/1. Not enough of a long shot? West’s wife Kim Kardashian is 550/1.

Kevin Spacey, who has some experience playing the President on “House of Cards,” is 155/1 currently. You get the idea, check out the full menu below.

Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin Already Mad at Donald Trump: ‘Big Sell-Out Is Coming’

Two of Donald Trump’s most high profile supporters may already be regretting their decision.

Both Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin criticized the president-elect on Friday, following months of staunchly supporting his election.

“Sounds like the big sell-out is coming. Oh well. The voters did what we could,” Coulter tweeted Friday. “If Trump sells out, it’s not our fault.”

Coulter appears to be angry over Trump backing off his campaign promise to build a wall around the United States as part of his immigration policy.

Instead, vice president-elect Mike Pence stated he and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan would be the ones spearheading immigration.

Coulter also expressed displeasure at Trump’s pick of South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, a Republican who had publicly criticized Trump, as the next UN Ambassador.

“After Nikki Haley, I expect @realDonaldTrump’s next cabinet pick to be Obama,” she said on Twitter. “Both used State of Union address this year to attack Trump.”

Meanwhile, Palin is mad about Trump’s plan to keep air conditioning plant Carrier in the United States by giving the company a multimillion-dollar tax incentive.

“When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” the former Alaska governor wrote in an op-ed on the website Young Conservatives.

“Republicans oppose this, remember?” she continued. “Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.”

Palin had been reported to be in consideration for an appointment as Secretary of Veteran Affairs — though the timing of this op-ed may diminish her chances of joining the Trump administration.

“When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent,” the former Alaska governor wrote in an op-ed on the website Young Conservatives.

“Republicans oppose this, remember?” she continued. “Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.”

Palin had been reported to be in consideration for an appointment as Secretary of Veteran Affairs — though the timing of this op-ed may diminish her chances of joining the Trump administration.

Nikki Haley: 5 Things to Know About Trump’s UN Ambassador Pick

President-elect Donald Trump has selected South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. She will become the first woman and non-white Cabinet-level official in his administration if she is confirmed by the Senate.

Trump said in a statement on Wednesday that Haley “has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation” and “is also a proven dealmaker.”

Here are five things to know about Haley:

1. Her parents are Indian immigrants

She’s the second Asian-American to serve as a U.S. governor, after Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal. Trump’s cabinet selections so far have included several white men who have been accused of racism, and Haley’s appointment may be an attempt to counter criticism about his team’s lack of diversity so far.

2. She criticized Trump during the GOP primaries

Haley campaigned for Marco Rubio and then supported Ted Cruz. When she gave the Republican response to President Obama’s final State of the Union address, she seemed to criticize Trump when she said: “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices.” Trump responded by calling her “weak” on immigration.

In October, she said she would vote for Trump even though the 2016 election had “turned my stomach upside-down.”

“This is no longer a choice for me on personalities because I’m not a fan of either one,” she said of Trump and Hillary Clinton.

However, she met with Trump last week and told reporters they had a “very nice” conversation.

3. Trump once tweeted this!

The people of South Carolina are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!

4. She ran South Carolina during tough times

Haley led the charge to remove the Confederate flag from state government buildings in 2015 after a white man killed African-Americans at Charleston’s Emanuel A.M.E. Church.

“On matters of race, South Carolina has had a tough history, we all know that,” she said at the time. “Many of us have seen it in our lives, in the lives of our parents and grandparents. We don’t need reminders.”

5. The move helps out a Trump supporter

Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster will likely take over as South Carolina governor. He was an early Trump supporter and backed the president-elect before the state’s primary in February.

Marco Rubio 33/1
