State Dept. to monitor Nikki Haley's remarks

In an attempt to cultivate more coherence among the Trump administration's foreign policy, State Department officials are asking U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley's aides to let the White House review any of her public remarks before speaking, according to an email obtained by the New York Times.

Between the lines: Haley has often been one of the leading members of the Trump administration to speak out on key foreign policy issues, from Trump's controversial travel ban to the missile strikes in Syria, and her comments don't always align with the core principles of the administration. Meanwhile, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson — the preferred voice on foreign affairs — has largely remained in the shadows.
