Haley stressed “That’s his right. “whether you agree with it or not, it’s the truth….

“Were there better ways he could have done that? That’s for everybody else to decide.”

Stressing that the president needs to surround himself with people he can trust, Haley said that she found that when she was governor of South Carolina, loyalty and trust was something she also valued highly.

Haley said that the reason people are uncomfortable with Trump is “because he acts. He doesn’t talk with a bunch of people about it before, he just acts,” adding that the president “is not one that’s going to sit there and talk for too long. If he sees something wrong, he’s going to deal with it.”

The ambassador also dismissed concerns about whether Trump is taping people in the White House or not, saying "I assume I'm being taped everywhere, so I don’t worry about that."
