Gardner Meets with Governor Nikki Haley, Intended United Nations Ambassador Nominee

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO), a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, today met with Governor Nikki Haley, President-elect Trump’s intended nominee for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

“After meeting with Governor Nikki Haley, I’m convinced she will be an outstanding U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations,” said Gardner. “We discussed many topics, including U.S. policy toward North Korea and agreed the current Administration’s policy of ‘strategic patience’ has failed. I’m excited to work with Governor Haley and the Trump Administration to promote U.S. interests abroad and ensure the safety and security of all Americans. Throughout her tenure as Governor, Governor Haley has always put the people of South Carolina first, and I’m confident she will now put the American people first as she enters her new role as U.N. Ambassador.


Cory Gardner is a member of the U.S. Senate serving Colorado. He sits on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee, and the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee, and is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
