Outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley lashed out at Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Tuesday, saying he had to "lose" the "thuggish nature in which he has been acting."

In remarks to reporters, Haley was asked by the Washington Examiner her thoughts about MBS, as he is known.

"That's an interesting question," she responded, adding: "First and foremost, [the crown prince] owes us some accountability for what happened to [The Washington Post opinion writer Jamal] Khashoggi. Without question."

She also noted MBS has been "careless at times," but that he has also shown he has "a lot of good ideas."

The remarks came the same day she delivered her final address to the United Nations' Security Council; she is stepping down at the end of the year, with State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert nominated to replace her.

President Donald Trump has drawn criticism for failing to condemn the crown prince over Khashoggi's death. The president has decided to not pursue further punishment beyond sanctions on Saudis deemed responsible for Khashoggi's killing in early October, citing the importance of diplomatic and economic ties with the kingdom.
