Outgoing UN Ambassador Nikki Haley jokes about Trump, Sen. Warren in speech

  • Keynote speaker Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley center shares a light moment as she attends the 73rd Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner Thursday Oct. 18 2018 in New York. Left is Archbishop of New York Cardinal Timoth

Elizabeth Warren, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions among others.

However, her resignation was seen by many as a way for Haley, who has become a highly respected figure, to distance herself from the chaos of the Trump administration so that she can pursue higher office later on.

"Actually, when the president found out that I was Indian-American, he asked if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren", she added.

Ms Haley recounted that as she prepared for the dinner - hosted by Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan and attended by the state's political elites - Mr Trump gave her some advice.

Haley also joked about Clinton and how she conducted her 2016 campaign, quipping that Clinton would be going trick-or-treating "everywhere" for Halloween "except MI and Wisconsin".

"I saw Jeff Sessions earlier today - not in NY".

She also joked about the president's recent address to the UN General Assembly, in which audience members laughed when Trump boasted that his "administration has accomplished more than nearly any in the history of our country".

"He said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments. It really killed at the United Nations, I got to tell you". "It totally prepared me for being a Republican in NY".

Will Elizabeth Warren's Identity Theft Help Kill Affirmative Action?
Throughout my childhood, I witnessed many incidences of racism - whether they were directed at me, my sister, or my father. She also released a campaign video relating a story about a Native American on her mother's side.

"In South Sudan, where rape is routinely used as a weapon of war, that is evil", she said, cited by Politico. "I'm going to pick the best person", he said.

(Haley is formally leaving the administration at the end of the year.) And it's equally impossible to think that a politician as savvy as Haley doesn't know how those words will be taken.So, what's she up to?Remember that when Haley and Trump held their press availability to announce she was leaving, she insisted she wouldn't be running in 2020 against Trump.

"I am still someone who gets very excited about Halloween", Ms Haley said.

She also poked fun at the mayor's resistance to raids made by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, which goes by the acronym ICE.

"In our toxic political environment, I've heard some people in both parties describe their opponents as enemies or evil", Ms Haley said.

"In America, our political opponents are not evil".

Haley turned to de Blasio, who was seated near his fellow Democrat Andrew Cuomo, the governor of NY, and reminded him that she has "diplomatic immunity" as a member of the United Nations delegation. The soon-to-be-ex-Trump-staffer also appeared to use the event to rebuke her boss' recent rhetoric on political opposition.
