Haley: UN has 'exhausted' options for N. Korea

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said the U.N. Security Council "has pretty much exhausted" diplomatic options against North Korea to CNN's Dana Bash. "I'm perfectly happy kicking this over to General Mattis because he has plenty of military options," she said.

Highlights from the interview:

  • On UN sanctions against North Korea: "We have economically strangled North Korea."
  • On Dreamers' path to citizenship: "We all feel for DREAMers ... but the United States is a country of laws."
  • On whether she'll take the Secretary of State job: "[Rex Tillerson] is not going anywhere, so I'm not going to think about it."
