Nikki Haley’s departure means the loss of a conventional Republican Foreign policy voice in a White House that at times has seen anything but conventional.It has been an honor of a lifetime.We’ll miss you, will be speaking all the time but we will miss you nevertheless and you have done a fantastic job.
As UN ambassador Haley was a vocal defender of some of Donald Trump’s most controversial policies including his decision to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,cut aid to Palestinian leaders in refugees and withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council.But Haley at times diverged from the president.She is an outspoken critic of Russia and that created friction with the president and she is a supporter of free trade.
在担任联合国大使期间，黑利直言支持唐纳德.特朗普一些最具争议的政策，包括他决定将美国大使馆从特拉维夫迁至耶路撒冷、削减对巴勒斯坦领导人的难民援助，以及退出联合国人权理事会 (UN Human Rights Council)。但黑利有时与总统意见相左。她直言不讳地批评俄罗斯，这引起了与总统的摩擦，她还是自由贸易的支持者。
But on Tuesday there appeared to be no ill will between the two.I will say this for all of you that are gonna ask about 2020. No, I’m not running for 2020.I can promise you what I’ll be doing is campaigning for this one.Even without Haley, analysts say there are still several like-minded foreign policy voices in the Trump administration including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.
I think that’s Ambassador Boltan as national security adviser and Secretary Pompeo as secretary of state viewed foreign policy of the United States and our approach to the United Nations very similarly to the way that Ambassador Haley does and so I expect her to be a great deal of continuity.In a White House that’s been marked by frequent high-level staff departures Haley outlasted nearly every single foreign policy official. It’s not clear though what effect all the turbulence will have.
我认为这是国家安全顾问和秘书博尔顿，国务卿蓬佩奥认为的美国外交政策, 我们的方法和联合国大使黑利的方法非常相似, 所以我期望她的政策有很大的连续性。在白宫，高层工作人员离开的非常频繁，黑利在被标记的名单中，但她其任期几乎超过了每一位外交政策官员。目前还不清楚这些动荡会产生什么影响。
We have three national security advisers already for example, that kind of turnover make it hard to have a coherent policy.I think this president makes it doubly hard to have a coherent policy because he just seems to change his mind a lot and swing pretty radically from one side to the other.At the age of 46, most observers agree Haley is probably not leaving the national political scene for good.
