Nikki Haley: Trump ‘Has Given Me a Lot of Leeway to Just Say What I Think’

CNN’s Jamie Gangel spoke with Nikki Haley for a profile about the United States ambassador to the United Nations. Haley talked a bit about her personal life, how Hillary Clinton of all people inspired her to run for office, and, of course, her working relationship with President Trump.

As Gangel noted during the interview, Trump and Haley didn’t exactly get along during the campaign, but it seems like they’ve buried the hatchet.

Haley said Trump understands she has no intention of being a “wallflower,” but at the same time she added, “I would never go rogue, because I’m very aware of who I work for.”

They do speak on occasion, but Haley made it clear that the president “has given me a lot of leeway to just say what I think and interpret what he thinks.”
