Trump hopes to pick UN ambassador from 5 candidates

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

The former Republican South Carolina governor made the jabs at the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, named after the former NY governor, who was the first Catholic to receive a major party nomination for president when he unsuccessfully ran in 1928.

"Two years ago, Trump was here and made some waves with his remarks".

Haley, who recently announced she will leave her post at the end of the year, proceeded to do just that.

"Actually when the President found out I was Indian-American, he asked me if I was from the tribe as Elizabeth Warren", Haley added. 'As a member of the Trump cabinet it is a thrill to be out to dinner without being harassed'.

"As a member of the United Nations delegation, I do have diplomatic immunity.an exemption from prosecution, or as Mayor De Blasio calls it, a sanctuary city!"

"When the president found out that I was Indian American, he asked if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren", she quipped, referencing the Democratic senator from MA who released a DNA test this week that showed she has a distant Native American ancestor.

U.S. Sen. Warren, D-Mass., announced the results of a DNA test this week that shows "strong evidence" of Native American heritage in the last six to 10 generations of her family history.

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

It is the lowest seasonally adjusted outcome since the 5 per cent the Australian Bureau of Statistics recorded in April 2012. The state's overall labor force participation - those working and those looking for work - fell by about 6,625 people.

"People always wonder if I felt different or isolated as an Indian American growing up in rural SC". Actually, there was a benefit.

While Haley appeared to bring the house down, both NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio and New York Governor Andrew Cuomo were met by boos when introduced to the guests.

Haley joked, according to The Associated Press. Haley said. "I get it".

"In America, our political opponents are not evil", she pointed out, noting that crimes committed against political opponents in Syria and Sudan are real instances of evil.

"We are going to pick someone very quickly", Trump said.

Speaking of her current job, which she plans to leave in January, Haley noted that numerous UN member nations are often angry with the United States.

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