Nikki Haley Lauds Trump's Coarse Rhetoric in RNC Speech After Previously Criticizing Him for It

After leaving her post as U.N. ambassador, Haley went on to serve on the board of directors for airline giant Boeing before she resigned from the lucrative position in March because of her disagreements over airline bailouts amid the pandemic, according to NPR.

In her time outside of politics, Haley authored a memoir about working in the Trump administration. Unlike others who have left the Trump administration only to write scathing accounts of their time in his White House, Haley only provided "glancing" critiques of the controversial president, according to The Washington Post.

Haley did, however, write about having private objections to Trump's 2018 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and his lack of condemnation for a 2017 white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, that resulted in a counter-protestor's death.

“A leader’s words matter in these situations. And the president’s words had been hurtful and dangerous,” Haley wrote in her book. “I picked up the phone and called the president.”

Elsewhere, she has sometimes pushed back on his infamously provocative and pugilistic social media style.

"This is so unnecessary," she tweeted back at Trump last year after he posted about a political opponent's home being burgled.

On Monday, she celebrated Trump's rhetoric, saying that he “tells the world what it needs to hear" and said, “he knows that political correctness and cancel culture are dangerous and just plain wrong."
