Ignore our resistant Democrats, listen to the silence from countries around the world in standing up for Iran after the drone strike of Qassem Soleimani, it is telling, according to former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley.

"I'll tell you this: You don't see anyone standing up for Iran," Haley told Fox News' "Hannity" on Monday night. "You're not hearing any of the Gulf members, you're not hearing China, you're not hearing Russia."

Despite the public protests and memorials reported in Middle Eastern media, countries are not rejecting the U.S. strike of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force commander, she told host Sean Hannity, adding a rebuke of domestic resistance and politicization against President Donald Trump.

"The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates," Haley said. "No one else in the world, because they knew that this man had evil veins. They knew what he was capable of and they saw the destruction and the lives lost based from his hands."

The removal of a U.S. designated foreign terrorist organization leader is not only justified, but it should be "celebrated," she added.

"This was something that needed to be done and should be celebrated," Haley said. "I will tell you right now, partisan politics should stop when it comes to foreign policy. This is about America united.

"We need to be completely behind the president. What he did, because every one of those countries are watching our news media. This is a moment of strength for the United States. It's a moment of strength for President Trump."

Haley gave a speech warning about Soleimani when she was the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, as she tweeted in a reminder after Soleimani's death.

"The president showed great decisiveness, great resolve," Haley told Hannity. "I think it was a long time coming. If you look back two years ago, I gave a speech at the U.N. on Soleimani and talked about the threats. The president has had restraint all of this time since we gave that speech. And I'll tell you, we said then he was not – by the entire security council – he was banned from leaving Iran.

"What he was doing in Iraq? He was trying to move in."
