The Trump administration's lonely voice for human rights
- Nikki Haley, Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, has pointedly made human rights, along with humanitarian assistance, a central focus of her agenda, putting her at odds with Trump as well as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
It’s a stance that puts her credibility at risk if she can’t deliver on her rhetoric, but one that also could prove politically smart by letting her distance herself from Trump’s record if the former South Carolina governor seeks higher office.
“What Haley may be looking for is plausible deniability,” said Richard Gowan, a U.N. expert with the European Council on Foreign Relations. “What better way to prepare for a post-Trump environment than to build up a body of evidence that she was not just following the Trump line?”
