Last quote by Nikki Haley

Russia is wasting our time. Russia has no interest in finding ground with the rest of this council to save the JIM. Russia will not agree to any mechanism that might shine a spotlight on the use of chemical weapons by its ally, the Syrian regime.feedback

We can learn a lot about a person if we know what types of things he or she talks about or comments on the most frequently. There are numerous topics with which Nikki Haley is associated, including Ukraine and Charleston. Most recently, Nikki Haley has been quoted saying: “Russia's actions today and in recent weeks have been designed to delay, to distract and ultimately to defeat the effort to secure accountability for chemical weapons attacks in Syria. We will do it again if we must.” in the article Syria toxic gas inquiry to end after Russia again blocks U.N. renewal.

Oct 29 2017

These are firm, candid conversations for a reason. We don't care about what they say and how pretty they say it. We care about what they do and how effective it is.feedback

Oct 29 2017

It goes back to the original conversation we had when he asked me to do this, it really does, because I didn't want to leave being governor to go recite talking points. I can think for myself, I can do for myself. I am very aware of who I work for and very aware of the national security team and I'm very aware of doing everything in the best interests of the United States and for peace and security around the world, and I'm very careful with how I use that flexibility. And credit goes to the president. When I go, he says, go do.' I don't go and go off the reserve or anything like that.feedback

Oct 29 2017

If you take out the personality, take out the person, look at the results and you can't deny it, you can't deny it.feedback

Oct 29 2017

When you're a governor you're very results-oriented and you're always looking at what that final level needs to be. When I look at this administration, the results are there, . People may not like the way he gets to the results, which I think is really, it's more of a communication thing.feedback

Oct 29 2017

Usually the president's very good at that. With no education, abducted as child soldiers, young girls raped . . . We can't take our eyes off the children of S. Sudan & DRC. #FutureLeaders.feedback

Oct 29 2017

Those kids will be 18 one day. They'll be an adult. And they'll be an uneducated adult with no social skills that will have resented the fact that they were put in that situation. And that's dangerous for the United States and that's dangerous for the world.feedback

Oct 27 2017

It was a firm, candid conversation. We had a conversation about what it's like to be a leader. We had a conversation about what is a democracy. We had a conversation about the quality of life of people. We had a conversation about the importance of elections.feedback

Oct 27 2017

Every day we don't have elections in this country another woman gets raped, another child becomes a soldier. All of this has to stop, and the only way they will stop is if we have peaceful elections.feedback

Oct 27 2017

This is not a democracy unless the people's voices are heard. We will not support, we will not condone, elections being put off any longer.feedback

Oct 27 2017

The reason I got emotional today was the hundred-plus kids that were chasing our cars and seeing us off. All I kept thinking was, what's going to happen to them? The sad reality, as it looks now, is that they are going to end up just like their parents.feedback

Oct 27 2017

I would say no. I just don't want to keep having this conversation. The focus is, I really want to do a good job now in what I'm doing. We have a secretary of state. Tillerson's not going anywhere, so it's really not been a topic of conversation.feedback

Oct 26 2017

Time and again, we see independent confirmation of chemical weapons use by the Assad regime.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Sudan

To his credit, he acknowledged everything I was saying. He listened to everything was saying and he was not defensive.feedback

Oct 25 2017

I was mad when I left the camp. How do you not go through listening to those women talk and hearing what their families went through and not just be totally angry at those that are responsible?feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Sudan

We have to decide how we're going to look at South Sudan going forward, and that will be based on how he goes from here. And based on his actions the United States will act accordingly.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Sudan

President Obama didn't do this to these women. I think their perception is that they were let down by the United States back in 2013 when they really needed us.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Refugees

The pain in the stories of refugees from S.Sudan is a reminder we can't look away. We can't let armed conflict be their only choice.feedback

Oct 25 2017 - Sudan

We are disappointed by what we are seeing. This is not what we thought we were investing in. What we thought we were investing in was a free, fair society where people could be safe and South Sudan is the opposite of that.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Sudan

When you tell him the stories and you tell him what people think, he wants to be helpful, he wants to be someone who brings peace.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Sudan

How can the international community allow this to go on? At some point President Kiir needs to be held accountable for all of the tragedy that he's caused these people. I was mad when I left the camp. The fact that this is a man-made conflict, that one man has done so much harm to so many people, it's heartbreaking. I don't know ... because I think that what I was going to say was probably tame now compared to what I want to say.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Sudan

I don't think the U.S. has a sole responsibility (for South Sudan), but I think the U.S. will do what the U.S. has always done, which is try and help people the best way that we can.feedback

Oct 24 2017

We have to see peace in South Sudan. We have to see that women are being taken care of. We can't see any more deaths. We can't see any more famine.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - United Nations

The goodwill and generosity of the American people are well-known, and we will continue to help the most vulnerable. But we will not do that if our assistance is continuously blocked from reaching people in need. The U.N.'s track record of long-term success is not good. Neither South Sudan nor the DRC has shown any real progress toward political solutions that would stop the violence.feedback

Oct 24 2017 - Syria conflict

Russia has once again demonstrated it will do whatever it takes to ensure the barbaric Assad regime never faces consequences for its continued use of chemicals as weapons. Russia has made it clear that it does not care about stopping the use of chemical weapons in the world.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Syria conflict

We can't pick and choose who we want to be at fault and who we don't.feedback

Oct 20 2017 - Syria conflict

This should not be controversial, but some Council members have decided to make it so. Basing the renewal on the contents of the next report, which the Russians would like to do, politicizes the process. We can't work like that.feedback

Oct 19 2017

It was just his conversation point. He was starting a conversation.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - Syria conflict

We can't go and pick and choose who we want to be a fault.feedback

Oct 18 2017 - United Nations

Nearly every threat to peace and security in the Middle East is connected to Iran's outlaw behavior.feedback

Oct 17 2017 - Iran

They can't continue to test ballistic missiles, which will lead to a nuclear Iran.feedback

Oct 17 2017 - United Nations

We look forward to delivering the message in person very soon that we have not given up on them and have not forgotten them.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - Iran

I think right now, you're going to see us stay in the deal. Because what our hope is that we can improve the situation. And that's the goal.feedback

Oct 15 2017

I'm not going to get into the drama of the he-said-he-said situation. What I will tell you is what I have witnessed is the president and Secretary Tillerson work very well together.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - Iran

The goal at the end of the day is to hold Iran accountable.feedback

Oct 15 2017 - North Korea

What we're saying now with Iran is don't let it become the next North Korea.feedback

Sep 22 2017 - North Korea

There are a lot of military options that can be done. And so the president is not going to spell out specifically what he's going to do, when he's going to do it, or where he's going to do it. But there are many options that he's discussed with his national security team that, should North Korea do anything irresponsible or reckless, that he has to choose from.feedback

Sep 20 2017 - Iran

It's not a clear signal that he plans to withdraw. What it is, is a clear signal that he's not happy with the deal.feedback

Sep 20 2017 - Nuclear weapons

We have to be realistic. Is there anyone who thinks that North Korea would ban nuclear weapons?feedback

Sep 20 2017 - Iran

I think what he needs to do is instead of focusing on us leaving the agreement, he needs to start following the rules. He's got to stop smuggling arms, he's got to stop all of the meddling they're doing over the Middle East, stop the ballistic missile testing. He is not keeping his end of the deal, and what he's trying to do is put it on us. But we have to keep it on him.feedback

Sep 19 2017 - Refugees

People are still at risk of being attacked or killed, humanitarian aid is not reaching the people who need it, and innocent civilians are still fleeing across the border to Bangladesh.feedback

Sep 18 2017

Rex Tillerson is not going anywhere.feedback

Sep 18 2017 - United Nations

If we have to go further, this is going to look small compared to what we do.feedback

Sep 17 2017 - United Nations

This is totally in their hands on how they respond.feedback

Sep 16 2017 - North Korea

What we are seeing is, they are continuing to be provocative, they are continuing to be reckless and at that point there's not a whole lot the Security Council is going to be able to do from here, when you've cut 90 percent of the trade and 30 percent of the oil.feedback

Sep 16 2017 - Iran

No one is going to grip-and-grin. The United States is going to work … This is a time to be serious, and it's a time for us to talk out these challenges and make sure there's action that follows it.feedback

Sep 16 2017 - Iran

Having said that, I have no problem kicking it to [Defense Secretary James] Mattis because I think he has plenty of options.feedback

Sep 16 2017 - United Nations

They're going to find out we are going to be solid, we're going to be strong. No one is going to grip and grin. The United States is going to work.feedback

Sep 16 2017 - United Nations

I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with the U.S. being very strong in the end.feedback

Sep 14 2017 - Iran

Iran's leaders want to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage to its bad behavior. It is this unwillingness to challenge Iranian behavior, for fear of damaging the nuclear agreement, that gets to the heart of the threat the deal poses to our national security.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - United Nations

The forthcoming measures by DPRK will make the U.S. suffer the greatest pain it ever experienced in its history.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - United Nations

If it agrees to stop its nuclear program, it can reclaim its future ... If North Korea continues its dangerous path, we will continue with further pressure. My delegation condemns in the strongest terms, and categorically rejects, the latest illegal and unlawful U.N. Security Council resolution. This ban will eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - United Nations

This resolution also puts an end to the regime making money from the 93,000 North Korean citizens it sends overseas to work and heavily taxes. This ban will eventually starve the regime of an additional $500 million or more in annual revenues.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - North Korea

These are by far the strongest measures ever imposed on North Korea ... but we all know these steps only work if all nations implement them completely and aggressively. Today we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear armed North Korea.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - United Nations

Today, we are attempting to take the future of the North Korean nuclear program out of the hands of its outlaw regime. Today, we are saying the world will never accept a nuclear-armed North Korea. And today the Security Council is saying if North Korea does not halt its nuclear program, we will act to stop it ourselves.feedback

Sep 11 2017 - North Korea

We are done trying to prod North Korea to do the right thing, we are now acting to stop it doing the wrong thing.feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Iran

Judging any international agreement begins and ends with the nature of the government that signed it. Can it be trusted to abide by its commitments?feedback

Sep 08 2017 - Iran

The deal was constructed in a way that makes leaving it less attractive.feedback

Sep 07 2017 - Iran

We must consider the whole jigsaw puzzle, not just one of its pieces.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

What happens next is significantly in Congress's hands.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

U.S. law requires the president to also look at whether the Iran deal is appropriate, proportionate and in our national security interests.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - North Korea

Do we think more sanctions are going to work on North Korea? Not necessarily. But what does it do? It cuts off the revenue that allows them to build ballistic missiles.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

You can't put lipstick on a pig. We have to look at the reality that this deal is flawed. We should welcome a debate over whether the JCPOA is in U.S. national security interests.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

While I have discussed it with him, I do not know what decision he will make. It is his decision to make, and his alone.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

No, they don't want us to get out of the deal. But this is the thing: Are we going to take care of our allies and making sure they're comfortable? Or are we going to look out for our U.S. security interests?feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

Just last month, when the United States imposed new sanctions in response to Iranian missile launches, Iran's leaders threatened once again to leave the JCPOA. This arrogant threat tells us one thing – Iran's leaders want to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage to its bad behavior.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

For advocates of the deal, everything in our relationship with the Iranian regime must now be subordinated to the preservation of the agreement.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Iran

This is about U.S. national security. This is not about European security. This is not about anyone else.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - United Nations

I get that Congress doesn't want this. This is not an easy situation for anyone. But our lives are not about being easy. Our lives are about being right.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - Iran

I am not saying this should go to Congress. I'm not saying we should get out of the deal. I'm not saying anything in terms of what should or shouldn't happen. What I am saying is we owe it to ourselves to look at every aspect of this deal.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - North Korea

We should always let every country know, whether it's North Korea, Iran or anyone else, that we will always look out for our interests, our security, and make sure that it's working for us, not making sure that it works for everyone else.feedback

Sep 04 2017 - Sanctions

The United States will look at every country that does business with North Korea as a country that is giving aid to their reckless and dangerous nuclear intentions.feedback

Sep 03 2017

We'll never understand what motivates anyone to enter one of our places of worship and take the life of another.feedback

Sep 01 2017

As Burmese security forces act to prevent further violence, they have a responsibility to adhere to international humanitarian law, which includes refraining from attacking innocent civilians and humanitarian workers.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - Iran

Iran is showing its true colors. Iran must decide whether it wants to be a member of the community of nations that can be expected to take its international obligations seriously or whether it wants to be the leader of a jihadist terrorist movement. It cannot be both. It's long past time for the international community to hold Iran to the same standard that all countries who actually value peace and security are held to.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - United Nations

If inspections of Iranian military sites are 'merely a dream,' as Iran says, then Iranian compliance with the J.C.P.O.A. is also a dream.feedback

Aug 31 2017 - United Nations

There are... numerous undeclared sites that have not been inspected. That is a problem.feedback

Aug 30 2017 - United Nations

They have thousands of missiles and thousands of trained fighters all beyond the control of the Lebanese government. It is apparent to everyone who cares to see it.feedback

Aug 30 2017 - United Nations

For too long UNIFIL's leadership has failed to make sure this goal is realized.feedback

Aug 29 2017 - Trump Presidency

If you choose not to, we will go our own path.feedback

Aug 28 2017 - Syria conflict

Gen Beary says there are no Hezbollah weapons. That's an embarrassing lack of understanding on what's going on around him.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - Iran

I have good confidence in the IAEA, but they are dealing with a country that has a clear history of lying and pursuing covert nuclear programs.feedback

Aug 25 2017 - United Nations

General Beary says there are no Hezbollah weapons. That's an embarrassing lack of understanding on what's going on around him. Hezbollah openly brags about their weapons. They parade them before TV cameras. The secretary general's reports have confirmed this. For the UNIFIL commander to deny it ... has any proof, shows that we need to have changes in UNIFIL.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Syria conflict

We don't see a peaceful Syria with Assad in there.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't think we can trust [the Russians]. They have certainly done some terrible atrocities.feedback

Aug 23 2017 - Trump Presidency

I know the pain that hate can cause, and we need to isolate haters, and we need to make sure that they know there is no place for them.feedback

Aug 22 2017 - Iran

Why would they say that if they had nothing to hide? Why wouldn't they let the IAEA go there?feedback

Aug 22 2017 - Iran

Are you looking at everything? Are you looking at those places where there has been covert activity in the past? Are you able to get access to these areas? Or are you being delayed? Are you being shut out from those things?feedback

Aug 22 2017 - Iran

We don't know if he's going to certify or decertify the deal.feedback

Aug 22 2017 - Iran

There were already issues in those locations, so are they including that in what they look at to make sure that those issues no longer remain? They have the authority to look at military sites now. They have the authority to look at any suspicious sites now, it's just are they doing it?feedback

Aug 17 2017 - United Nations

The murder of U.N. experts – especially like Michael and Zaida, who risked their own lives in order to help others – cannot end in a bureaucratic procedure. There is simply no other appropriate course of action.feedback

Aug 16 2017 - Iran

Iran cannot be allowed to use the nuclear deal to hold the world hostage ... The nuclear deal must not become 'too big to fail.feedback

Aug 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

It should have never been there.feedback

Aug 06 2017

The threat of an outlaw nuclearized North Korean dictatorship remains ... (and) is rapidly growing more dangerous.feedback

Aug 06 2017 - United Nations

These sanctions will cut deep, and in doing so will give the North Korean leadership a taste of the deprivations they have chosen to inflict on the North Korean people. Revenues aren't going toward feeding its people. Instead, the North Korean regime is literally starving its people and enslaving them in mines and factories in order to fund these illegal missile programs.feedback

Aug 04 2017 - Afghanistan

He had not worked in D.C. before, so this was certainly a new environment for him, but I have always seen him lead. He sets very clear goals. . . . When we're in those meetings, he's all about getting options on the table for the president.feedback

Aug 02 2017 - Iran

Our friends and allies in the United Kingdom, France and Germany join us in calling out and condemning Iran's destructive and threatening actions. The world must not allow Iran to act in defiance of the Security Council and its resolutions.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - United Nations

We're making progress ... We're going to see what the situation is.feedback

Jul 25 2017 - United Nations

We're constantly in touch with China ... Things are moving but it's still too early to tell how far they'll move.feedback

Jul 24 2017 - Israel

All parties should work to reduce these tensions and we offer whatever assistance we can in helping to do this. At the holy sites, it's vital that both access and security be ensured.feedback

Jul 09 2017 - Trump-Putin

Everybody knows that Russia meddled in our elections. This is Russia trying to save face.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - Trump-Putin

President Trump still knows that they meddled. President Putin knows that they meddled, but he is never going to admit to it. And that's all that happened.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - Trump-Putin

I think President Putin did exactly what we thought he would do, which is deny it. This is Russia trying to save face. And they can't. They can't. Everybody knows that Russia meddled in our elections. Everybody knows that they're not just meddling in the United States' election. They're doing this across multiple continents, and they're doing this in a way that they're trying to cause chaos within the countries.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

The way they're supposed to, there are no freebies for the Palestinian Authority anymore.feedback

Jul 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

I deal with 192 [countries] and the overwhelming feeling is that we are unpredictable. They don't know exactly what we are going to do. Spending my 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea.feedback

Jul 07 2017 - United Nations

The international community can cut off the major sources of hard currency to the North Korean regime. We can restrict the flow of oil to their military and their weapons programs. We can increase air and maritime restrictions. We can hold senior regime officials accountable.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - ICBM

One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction.feedback

Jul 05 2017 - Sanctions

If you are happy with North Korea's actions, veto it. If you see this for what it is which is North Korea showing its muscle, then you need to stand strong and vote with the international community to strengthen sanctions. If you choose not to we will go our own path. But it makes no sense to not join together on this threat (from) North Korea. They have not had any care for Russia or China in this. ...They're not going to listen to anything that you say.feedback

Jul 05 2017

But we prefer not to go in that direction. We have other methods of addressing those who threaten us, and of addressing those who supply the threats. We have great capabilities in the area of trade.feedback

Jul 05 2017

In fact we seek to avoid it.feedback

Jul 05 2017

We should not fool ourselves into thinking we have solved the problem…Not even close. The North Korean threat has not left us. It is rapidly growing more dangerous.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - United Nations

The secretary-general's report makes clear that Iran is in violation of the Security Council resolution 2231 and so the question becomes 'what is the Security Council going to do about it?feedback

Jun 29 2017 - United Nations

The Security Council has failed to even take minimal steps to respond to these violations. We must ... show Iran that we will not tolerate their egregious flaunting of U.N. resolutions.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - United Nations

Just 5 months into our time here, we've cut over half a billion $$$ from the UN peacekeeping budget & we're only getting started.feedback

Jun 29 2017 - Chemical weapons

We have the highest confidence in the O.P.C.W. report, which confirms what we already knew: chemical weapons were used against the Syrian people. To independently identify who was responsible for this horrific attack.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Syria conflict

I can tell you due to the President's action, we did not see an incident.feedback

Jun 28 2017 - Syria conflict

Due to the president's actions, we did not see an incident. I would like to think that the president saved many innocent men, women and children.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Syria conflict

Any further attacks done to the people of Syria will be blamed on Asaad, but also on Russia & Iran who support him killing his own people.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - United Nations

If they fail to do so, the Council must be prepared to act.feedback

Jun 23 2017 - Syria conflict

You pick and choose your battles, and when we're looking at this, it's about changing up priorities. And our priority is no longer to sit there and focus on getting Assad out.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - United Nations

Every ounce of what we do should be against Hamas. They are a dangerous actor who has no care for the Palestinians, no care for the Israelis, and they are determined to destroy everything in their path.feedback

Jun 12 2017 - United Nations

It's a new day at the United Nations. I think the international community knows we're back.feedback

Jun 12 2017

I think the international community knows we are back.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Venezuela

Ashley eventually got out of the hospital ... she is one of the lucky ones. She lived. Others are not so lucky. In the last year, 11,500 babies died before their first birthday in Venezuela. Maternal mortality is up 65 percent.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Human Rights

In case after case, it has been a forum for politics, hypocrisy and evasion, not the forum for conscience that its founders envisioned. If it fails to change, then we must pursue the advancement of human rights outside the council. America does not seek to leave the Human Rights Council; we seek to re-establish the council's legitimacy. The United States will not sit quietly while this body, supposedly dedicated to human rights, continues to damage the cause for human rights.feedback

Jun 06 2017

The United States is looking carefully at this council and our participation in it. We see some areas for significant strengthening. It's hard to accept that this council has never considered a resolution on Venezuela and yet it adopted five biased resolutions, in March, against a single country, Israel. It is essential that this council address its chronic anti-Israel bias if it is to have any credibility.feedback

Jun 06 2017

This is an economic, political and humanitarian crisis that demands the world's attention. The Venezuelan government is in the midst of destroying human rights and democracy in Venezuela. It is conducting a campaign of violence and intimidation against unarmed demonstrators, businesses, civil society and freely elected political opposition. There are many things that could be done to help the people of Venezuela. But they really only need one thing: a free election.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Venezuela

The Venezuela regime is fooling no one. Recognizing that its grip on power has slipped, it is yet again trying to change the rules of the game.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - United Nations

When the world's preeminent human rights body is turned into a haven for dictators, the idea of international cooperation in support of human dignity is discredited. Cynicism grows. There is already more than enough cynicism to go around these days.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Human Rights

The United States is looking carefully at this council and our participation in it. We see some areas for significant strengthening.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - United Nations

It is essential the council address its chronic anti-Israel bias if it's to have any credibility.feedback

Jun 05 2017 - Human Rights

We owe it to their legacy to end the human rights abuses being carried out by armed groups and the D.R.C. government against the Congolese people.feedback

Jun 04 2017 - Trump Presidency

He knows that it's changing and the US has to be responsible for it and that's what we're gonna do. Just because we got out of a club doesn't mean we don't care about it.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Iran

President Trump believes the climate is changing and he believes pollutants are part of the equation.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - Human Rights

The council must end its practice of wrongly singling out Israel for criticism. When the council passes more than 70 resolutions against Israel, a country with a strong human rights record, and just seven resolutions against Iran, a country with an abysmal human rights record, you know something is seriously wrong.feedback

Jun 03 2017 - United Nations

We want a negotiated solution, but North Korea must fulfill its basic obligations by first stopping all ballistic missile launches and nuclear weapons testing and taking concrete steps toward getting rid of its nuclear weapons program.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Sanctions

The Security Council is sending a clear message to North Korea today: Stop firing ballistic missiles or face the consequences. Beyond diplomatic and financial consequences, the United States remains prepared to counteract North Korean aggression through other means, if necessary.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - United Nations

Victims of the world’s most egregious abuses are often ignored by the very organization that is supposed to protect them.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

America will remain a leader in environmental protection. But we will not jeopardise our economy in order to please other counties that don't come anywhere near our environmental standards.feedback

Jun 01 2017 - Trump Presidency

This great leap backward is another bow to anti-science know-nothingism. Pandering to a handful of billionaires and special interests would impose huge harm upon our generation, upon future generations, and upon our fragile planet.feedback

May 30 2017 - United Nations

(The Chinese) have the lay of the land and so we're going to keep the pressure on China, but we're going to continue to work with them in any way that they think is best, and I think that we'll decide this week on what that looks like.feedback

May 30 2017 - Human Rights

I think 'America First' is human rights and 'America First' is humanitarian issues. It's what we've always been known for. Everything I've done leading up to this point has always been about diplomacy. It's been about trying to lift up everyone, getting them to work together for the greater good, and that's what I'm going to attempt to do going forward.feedback

May 30 2017

We take basically what we work with every day and try to make America first through that lens.feedback

May 26 2017 - Refugees

It's starting the conversation. It doesn't mean that's where it will end up. He's going to have that conversation with Congress on where we should fall on this.feedback

May 24 2017 - United Nations

I was a governor, I had to do an executive budget. What an executive budget is is the start of a conversation.feedback

May 23 2017

It's starting the conversation. It doesn't mean that's where it will end up. He's going to have that conversation with Congress on where we should fall on this. That's why I'm here. He gets the fact he's got a massive deficit he's got to work on. He gets the fact he's got to build up his military, and he gets the fact we've got to walk that line in the middle. My job is to help them walk that line.feedback

May 23 2017 - United Nations

We're doing that now, in terms of getting another resolution together looking at sanctions and how were gonna continue to force it, because this is the same movie that keeps playing. We don't want to start a fight, so don't give us a reason to have one.feedback

May 23 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think we absolutely need the investigation. I think that all these questions need to be answered so that the administration can get back to work.feedback

May 22 2017 - Turkey

We don't know how long this conflict's going to last. What we do know is that whether it's Jordan, whether it's Turkey, the sustainability of the situation as it is should keep evolving.feedback

May 22 2017 - Turkey

You've got a lot of different organizations trying to do the same thing. The humanitarian organizations don't need to get into the development business. They need to do what they're good at, and that's the humanitarian role. We need to bring in the development organizations more.feedback

May 21 2017 - Syria conflict

So our goal is how do we get these people back home to a safe place?feedback

May 21 2017 - Syria conflict

We're the No. 1 donor here through this crisis. That's not going to stop. We're not going to stop funding this. The fact that I'm here shows we want to see what else needs to be done.feedback

May 18 2017 - Israel

I don't know what the policy of the administration is, but I believe the Western Wall is part of Israel and I think that that is how, you know, we've always seen it and that's how we should pursue it. I know that they're trying to fix it and get that taken care of, but we've always thought the Western Wall was part of Israel.feedback

May 16 2017 - ICBM

We have worked well with China. They have really tried to help us in our communications with North Korea.feedback

May 15 2017

You first have to get into Kim Jong-un's head – which is, he's in a state of paranoia, he's incredibly concerned about anything and everything around him. Having a missile test is not the way to sit down with the president, because he's absolutely not going to do it.feedback

May 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

The president is the C.E.O. of his country. He can hire and fire whoever he wants, that's his right. Whether you agree with it or not, it's the truth.feedback

May 09 2017 - United Nations

The European Union can and should do more to underscore to Iran that its destabilizing actions in the region, including support for extremist and terrorist groups, must cease.feedback

May 01 2017

We are not dealing with a rational person. It is an unbelievable, irresponsible arrogance that we are seeing coming out of Kim Jong Un at this time.feedback

Apr 27 2017

The world is in good hands under her leadership.feedback

Apr 21 2017

Our priority is no longer to sit and focus on getting Assad out.feedback

Apr 21 2017 - Libya

We want to see the parties come together, have one political solution, one government, one military, so the Libyan people can move forward.feedback

Apr 14 2017 - Haiti

We must acknowledge the abandoned children, 12 to 15 years old, who lived every day with hunger. They were lured by peacekeepers with cookies and snacks, the high price of this food was sexual abuse.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - Syria conflict

We want to work with Russia to advance a political process in Syria. We want Russia to use its influence over the Assad regime to stop the madness and the cruelty we see every day on the ground. Today's vote could have been a turning point.feedback

Apr 13 2017 - United Nations

The United States has made it clear to the U.N. and all troop-contributing countries that these abuses must stop.feedback

Apr 12 2017

It's unfortunate, and we should never have comparisons with Hitler, ever. That was a terrible time in history and it's just not something people want to hear about or think about or think there's another comparison to it.feedback

Apr 10 2017 - Syria conflict

Regime change is something that we think is going to happen.feedback

Apr 09 2017

You know, the interesting thing, Chuck, is, when this chemical weapons murder happened to so many people, Russia's reaction was not, Oh, how horrible,' or, How could they do this to innocent children,' or, How awful is that?' Their initial reaction was, Assad didn't do it. The Syrian government didn't do it.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Syria conflict

I don't know what his thought process was in 2013. And I'm not going to attempt to try and explain that. What I can tell you is, through the meetings we had all this week, what you saw was a president that was disgusted by what the Assad regime did to those innocent people.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Syria conflict

I think that's dependent on the actors that are at play. I mean, this is a very complicated situation. We know there's no easy solution to the crisis that's in Syria. But our focus is to make sure that, you know, we're focused on strengthening the cease fire.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Syria conflict

He won't stop here. If he needs to do more, he will do more. What happens really depends on how everyone responds to what happens in Syria. The United States is going to continue to watch and be active and we'll see what happens. Getting Assad out is not the only priority. There is no political solution with Assad at the lead. That's not something the United States has decided, it's something the international community has decided.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Syria conflict

We hope that is not necessary. The United States, as president of the Council this month, decided the session would be held in the open. Any country that chooses to defend the atrocities of the Syrian regime will have to do so in full public view, for all the world to hear. When the United Nations consistently fails in its duty to act collectively, there are times in the life of states that we are compelled to take our own action.feedback

Apr 08 2017 - Syria conflict

The moral stain of the Assad regime could no longer go unanswered. His crimes against humanity could no longer be met with empty words. It was time to say enough. But not only say it, it was time to act. Bashar al-Assad must never use chemical weapons again, ever. Russia is supposed to have removed all the chemical weapons from Syria, but obviously that has not happened.feedback

Apr 06 2017

We can reduce the troops tremendously.feedback

Apr 05 2017

How many more children have to die before Russia cares? The U.S. sees yesterday's attack as a disgrace at the highest level – an assurance that humanity means nothing to the Syrian government. We know that yesterday's attack was a new low even from the barbaric Assad regime.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - United Nations

The United States has seen China for 25-plus years say that they are concerned about North Korea, but we haven't seen them act like they're concerned about North Korea. This administration wants to see them act.feedback

Apr 04 2017 - Human Rights

But there are friends you can work with, while at the same time saying we do not like what you are doing with respect to human rights. The White House is very supportive of me talking about human rights – but that doesn't mean we are not going to speak to Egypt, to Saudi Arabia. We are going to play with who we need to play with. It is not intended to in any way call out certain countries or blast them or use this as a gotcha game. We are a strong group. We are working as a team. And I am honoured to be part of that team.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - United Nations

We all know that we each have a place in terms of this administration, but more importantly we know that we're working as a team. There are not any dynamics that would portray anything other than that.feedback

Apr 03 2017 - United Nations

He didn't say that. There's a reason he didn't say that. Those are conversations we have as well. That's what you do with friends.feedback

Apr 02 2017 - United Nations

I'm not going to go back into, should Assad be in or out?' . Been there, done that, right? I want them to know that, look, that happened, but it will never happen again. We're not gong to put up with it. The thing about clubs is they have rules, and they have a culture, and there is a constant pressure to comply with the rules of the club, and soon enough, members are doing things a certain way because that's the way they've always done them. I'm working to change the culture. I was definitely an outsider.feedback

Apr 02 2017

Well, certainly, I think Russia was involved in the election. There's no question about that. And I think when they finish with all of this process, yes, they need to address Russia, they need to act, and they need to make sure they're loud about it. There's no love. We cannot trust Russia. We should never trust Russia. There's certain things, when they do something wrong, I have no problem calling them out on it.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - United Nations

We are a generous nation. But we must ask ourselves what good is being accomplished by this disproportionate contribution.feedback

Mar 30 2017 - United Nations

It will be very telling if any country tries to block this debate. For anyone that says you can't get anything done at the U.N., they need to know there's a new sheriff in town.feedback

Mar 27 2017

I'm a mum. I'm a wife. I'm a daughter. I always think of my family first. Our job is to protect our people and our country. To keep them safe. To keep the peace.feedback

Mar 19 2017 - United Nations

We're going to have to make this right with Haiti, without question, and the U.N. is going to have to take responsibility.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - United Nations

I would not say that. I'm not going to talk about where the president is, because I don't know. I have always made it very clear, from my confirmation and in the words that I've said from the U.N., that I don't trust Russia.feedback

Mar 15 2017

He's saying let's temporarily pause, and you prove to me that the vetting is okay, that I can trust these people coming through for the American people. Every American citizen should appreciate the fact that we've gotten so far away from vetting that we need to get back into it. The president saying, Show me how you're gonna vet.feedback

Mar 15 2017

That such anti-Israel propaganda would come from a body whose membership nearly universally does not recognize Israel is unsurprising. The United Nations Secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I haven't had anyone talk to me about cutting off the aid.feedback

Mar 09 2017

They've given us enough reason to think how irresponsible ... and think that we're dealing with a rational person on this. I can tell you we're not ruling anything out, and we're considering every option that's on the table.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - THAAD

Tell me why we wouldn't do the THAAD in light of 24 ballistic missiles, in light of two nuclear tests, knowing that we're going to protect our allies. We're not going to leave South Korea standing there with the threat of North Korea facing them and not help. The reason for THAAD is because of the actions of North Korea.feedback

Mar 08 2017

All options are on the table.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - United Nations

We have to see some sort of positive action taken by North Korea before we can ever take them seriously.feedback

Mar 08 2017 - North Korea

We have not seen any goodwill at all coming from North Korea. I appreciate all my counterparts wanting to talk about talks and negotiations (but) we are not dealing with a rational person. This is not a rational person, who has not had rational acts, who is not thinking clearly. We're not ruling anything out and we're considering every option that's on the table.feedback

Feb 28 2017

Russia just doesn't want to criticise the Assad regime for using chemical weapons. That's the truth. So what message are we sending to the world? If you are alie with China and Russia they will cover the backs of their friends who use chemical weapons to kill their own people. Some say we should focus more on ISIS.. The US condemns any use of chemical weapons by ISIS or any other non-state actor.feedback

Feb 21 2017

He could spot even the narrowest opportunities to find a compromise.feedback

Feb 20 2017

We did not always see things the same way, but he unquestionably advocated his country's positions with great skill.feedback

Feb 16 2017 - United Nations

First of all, the two-state solution is what we support. Anybody that wants to say the United States does not support the two-state solution - that would be an error. We absolutely support the two-state solution but we are thinking out of the box as well.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - United Nations

It is time to hold North Korea accountable – not with our words, but with our actions.feedback

Feb 10 2017 - United Nations

The United States was disappointed to see a letter indicating the intention to appoint the former Palestinian Authority Prime Minister to lead the UN Mission in Libya. For too long the U.N. has been unfairly biased in favor of the Palestinian Authority to the detriment of our allies in Israel.feedback

Feb 03 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

We do want to better our relations with Russia, however the dire situation in eastern Ukraine is one that demands clear and strong condemnation of Russian actions. The sudden increase in fighting in eastern Ukraine has trapped thousands of civilians and destroyed vital infrastructure and the crisis is spreading, endangering many thousands more. This escalation of violence must stop.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

We do want to better our relations with Russia. And the crisis is spreading, endangering many more. The dire situation in eastern Ukraine is one that demands clear and strong condemnation of Russian actions. Crimea is a part of Ukraine. Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

The United States stands with the people of Ukraine who have suffered for nearly three years under Russian occupation and military interventions. Until Russia and the separatists it supports respect Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity this crisis will continue.feedback

Feb 02 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

The United States continues to condemn and call for an immediate end.feedback

Jan 28 2017 - United Nations

I do not think we need to pull money from the U.N.. It's not something I would consider as ambassador or anything that I would suggest back to you for Congress.feedback

Jan 27 2017

Our goal with the admin is to show value at the UN and the way that we will do that is to show strength, show our voice, have the backs of our allies and make sure our allies have our back as well. For those who don't have our backs, we're taking names. Everything that is working, we are going to make it better. Everything that is not working, we are going to try and fix. And anything that seems to be obsolete and not necessary, we are going to do away with.feedback

Jan 18 2017 - United Nations

Last month's passage of UN Resolution 2334 was a terrible mistake, making a peace agreement between the Israelis and the Palestinians harder to achieve.feedback

Jan 18 2017 - United Nations

I would suggest there is nothing more important to a governor's success than her ability to unite those with different backgrounds, viewpoints, and objectives behind a common purpose.feedback

Jan 17 2017 - United Nations

Nowhere has the UN's failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally Israel.feedback

Nov 26 2016

I always yearned to see Punjab - my motherland - and now I am so proud to be here after almost 40 years.feedback

During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices. We must resist that temptation.feedback

Nov 23 2016

I would not be here if I didn't want to make sure that Hillary [Clinton] was not going to be the next president.feedback

Nov 23 2016

If we have citizens who are law-abiding, who love our traditions, who do everything to be productive citizens in America, they should feel welcome in this country. The reason this country is so great is because the fabric of this country was made by immigrants, and its legal immigrants.feedback

Nov 23 2016 - United Nations

Our country faces enormous challenges here at home and internationally, and I am honored that the president-elect has asked me to join his team and serve the country we love as the next ambassador to the United Nations.feedback

Nov 23 2016

There is a method to the madness. I am selling the state the only way I know how.feedback

Nov 23 2016

I hope he continues to do that, and I hope he continues to be disciplined in his comments.feedback

Nov 23 2016

When the president believes you have a major contribution to make to the welfare of our nation, and to our nation's standing in the world, that is a calling that is important to heed.feedback

Nov 22 2016

It was a good meeting. We talked about a multiple group of topics and it was nice meeting.feedback

Oct 11 2016

What might not be flooded today could be flooded tomorrow.feedback

Oct 10 2016

I am no weather man, but would guess that the gusts of wind were near 100 mph (160 km), and with soggy ground a lot trees couldn't stand up to it.feedback

Oct 09 2016

My hope and prayers always is that there's none, but I think as they're going through search and rescue, that's when we start to find things out.feedback

Oct 07 2016

Now is the time for the state to pray.feedback

Oct 06 2016

The 100 to 200 troopers that they usually request or need would not be available to them.feedback

Oct 06 2016

What we're trying to do is, actually, because the storm changed, we are changing with the storm. Beaufort and Charleston definitely need to go ahead and plan on evacuating at 3 [p.m. ET], but we saw that because the storm had slowed down, we can move that evacuation for Georgetown and Horry to tomorrow morning.feedback

Oct 05 2016

Our goal is to make sure you get 100 miles away from the coast.feedback

Oct 05 2016

We don't do voluntary or mandatory. It is an evacuation.feedback

Oct 04 2016

As of now I can't imagine that happening. But certainly we're going to continue to watch this.feedback

Oct 04 2016

We've been though winter storms. We've been through a 1,000-year flood. A hurricane is different. I don't want anyone to look at the last couple of tragedies we've gone through and think this is similar.feedback

Washington is broken, but we don't have to look any further than leaders like Mike Pence for the solutions to fix it.feedback

Jan 13 2016

Some people think that you have to be the loudest voice in the room to make a difference. That is just not true. Often, the best thing we can do is turn down the volume.feedback

Jan 13 2016

There is more than enough blame to go around.feedback

Jun 23 2015 - Walmart

This is a moment in which we can say that that flag, while an integral part of our past, does not represent the future of our great state. The murderer now locked up in Charleston said he hoped his actions would start a race war. We have an opportunity to show that not only was he wrong, but that just the opposite is happening.feedback
