During a press conference this afternoon, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley told reporters that while "there's going to be chatter" surrounding her job, she is simply trying "to do a good job and I'm trying to be responsible in my job…I'm trying to serve the president of this country as best I can."
Do you want to be Secretary of State? "No, I do not."
More on the situation around the globe:
- North Korea: "We're not gonna run scared…If North Korea attacks the United States or our allies, the United States will respond. Period."
- Myanmar: "The president is very concerned…It's something a lot of us can't stomach." Haley added that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had spoken to the de facto leader of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi, earlier this week.
- Iran: "If we don't do something and we make the same mistakes we made with North Korea, we will be dealing with an Iran that has nuclear weapons and ballistic missile technology."
