U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley encountered a backlash to her suggestion that President Donald Trump has improved the nation's military and energy at the Women in the World Summit Wednesday.

"President Trump has been critical of course of what's going on in Syria and Assad and he has been critical of President Obama, saying that he didn't act enough — I'm paraphrasing him — back in 2012 and 2013, but we have not not heard much from him about Russia. Why?" Greta Van Susteren, the event's moderator, asked to a round of applause.

"I have hit Russia over the head more times than I can count, and it's because if they do something wrong, we're going to call them out on it," Haley replied.

"If they want to help us defeat terrorism, fine. But the things they have done with Crimea and Ukraine, the things they have done and how they have covered up for Assad, those types of things, we're not going to give them a pass on," she added.

Haley claimed Trump told her that Russia is a "problem," and asked the audience to "look at his actions," according to The Washington Free Beacon.

"Everyone wants to hear his words, but look at his actions," Haley said. "The two things that Russia doesn't want to see the U.S. do is strengthen their military and expand energy, and the president has done both of those."

Members of the crowd then began booing, causing Greta Van Susteren, the moderator, to quickly change the subject.
