Nikki Haley Ignites UN Floor with Bombshell Threat Straight from Trump


U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley made it clear during a United Nations Security Council meeting Saturday morning that the United States and its allies stand ready to launch additional attacks on Syria’s chemical weapons capabilities if the regime should decide to use the banned weapons in the future.

“I spoke to the president this morning and he said if the Syrian regime uses this poisonous gas again, the United States is locked and loaded,” Haley said, according to Politico.

“When our president draws a red line, our president enforces the red line,” she added in a not-so-subtle shot at the prior administration.

Haley spent a significant portion of her speech reiterating how Russia has not only aided and abetted Syria’s use of chemical weapons in defiance of international law, but also called them out for how they’ve obstructed UN efforts to ensure such weapons are destroyed and their use curtailed.

She further accused Russia of waging a deliberate disinformation campaign in regard to the suspected chemical weapons attacks that resulted in retaliatory targeted missile strikes, according to The Hill.

“We can all see that a Russia disinformation campaign is in full-force this morning,” Haley stated. “But Russia’s desperate attempts at deflection cannot change the facts.”

“The pictures of dead children were not fake news,” Haley added. “They were the result of the Syrian regime’s barbaric inhumanity. And they were the result of the regime and Russia’s failure to live up to their international commitments to remove all chemical weapons from Syria.”

Ambassador Haley reminded everyone that both Russia and Syria repeatedly assured the international community that they had complied with demands to get rid of chemical weapons in the war-torn nation — a task they obviously failed to achieve, if they even ever tried — and stated bluntly that the U.S. would wage a “sustained” military campaign if necessary to prevent further chemical weapon’s use by Syria.

President Donald Trump remarked on the precision missile strikes — which included the use of cruise missiles as well as strikes by manned aircraft — and praised the capabilities of the U.S. military in a pair of tweets Saturday morning.

“A perfectly executed strike last night. Thank you to France and the United Kingdom for their wisdom and the power of their fine Military. Could not have had a better result. Mission Accomplished!” Trump tweeted.

“So proud of our great Military which will soon be, after the spending of billions of fully approved dollars, the finest that our Country has ever had. There won’t be anything, or anyone, even close!” he tweeted moments later.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, speaking on behalf of President Trump, has made it as clear as can be that the continued use of banned chemical weapons by the Syrian regime will no longer be tolerated and will instead receive swift retribution by a “locked and loaded” U.S.-led military coalition.
