White House denies confusion in approach to Russian Federation sanctions

White House denies confusion in approach to Russian Federation sanctions

Apart from grubby political jealousies and infighting could there be anything more significant in the dimming star of Nikki Haley? The day before, Nikki Haley, the United Nations ambassador, announced that the US government was about to levy new sanctions against Russian Federation that day or the next. [Treasury] Secretary Mnuchin will be announcing those on Monday, if he hasn't already. Because her job involves being one of the leading articulators of US policy to the world, the president has now rendered her assignment meaningless, impossible or perhaps both. But don't get duped. But to his credit, while Kudlow probably knows who changed the policy, it's entirely possible that neither he nor anyone else at the White House knows who was supposed to tell Haley about it.

That's why giddy reactions to Haley's clapback at Larry Kudlow, Trump's National Economic Council director, should be kept in check.

The whiplash over new Russian Federation sanctions fueled speculation in recent days that the White House was not entirely on the same page over Moscow.

Trump administration official Larry Kudlow has apologized to U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley after suggesting she was suffering from "momentary confusion" when she announced new sanctions against Russian Federation were imminent.

By Tuesday, Kudlow went further.

"Great, now she can finally tell us... more stories about Donald Trump doing sex? There might have been some momentary confusion about that". Haley issued a terse statement to Fox News, saying, "With all due respect, I don't get confused". "I was wrong to say that - totally wrong". As of last summer, Haley told CNN Trump had "never once" called to say she had overstepped.

National Football League releases 2018 schedule, Cowboys to play first game in Charlotte
For teams in different divisions and on opposite sides of the country, the Panthers and Seahawks have had an interesting history. A December 9 game in Cleveland, a city that averages about 13 inches of snow for that month , brought some frosty reactions.

As usual, the White House was chaotic, and Kudlow came off looking like a dolt. The dispute between Haley's team and the White House had been playing out largely behind the scenes since Haley's comments Sunday.

S.E. Cupp, a conservative commentator, cranked the hyperbole to 11. And Haley is hardly ready to break away from the Trumpian fold.

Haley was once one of those anti-Trump Republicans. So when Haley appears to check them - even if her efforts are no more than rhetorical, and even if her primary motivation is positive PR - much of the female population yearns to cheer her on. The daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley added, "No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country". Marco Rubio (R-FL) in an unsuccessful effort to prevent SC, the state she then governed, from falling to Trump.

And since that conversation, Haley has spoken her mind - staking out tough positions on everything from racism in the U.S. to policy regarding Russia, Syria and Iran, often teetering on the edge of the administration's position and her own. She'd always defended the flag's presence - until the angry post-massacre backlash threatened to swamp her political future.

The laconic quip instantly made her the woman of the moment in Washington.

Politicians are born shape-shifters. "Some of them just get to talk!" Phipps did not respond to Breitbart News's request for comment. Instead, through no fault of her own, she looks like a fool.
