Nikki Haley NEW UPDATED Web Graphic.jpg

Nikki R. Haley is the former United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations. She served as a member of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet and on the UN National Security Council. During her time as ambassador, the United States took a strong stand against the chronic anti-Israel bias at the United Nations. In the UN Security Council, she proudly issued the first American veto in six years defending the United States’ sovereign right to move our Embassy to Jerusalem.

At the United Nations, Ambassador Haley introduced reforms that made the organization more efficient, transparent, and accountable. In a two-year period, she negotiated over $1.3 billion in savings, including rightsizing UN peacekeeping missions to make them more effective and targeted. She also championed human rights, challenging violators across the globe and standing up to oppressive regimes. Ambassador Haley hosted the first-ever session devoted solely to promoting human rights. She traveled the world visiting people oppressed by their own governments to see firsthand the challenges they face and to work with them directly on life-improving solutions.

Prior to being confirmed by the Senate as the 29th U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations in 2017, Haley served as the first female and first minority governor of South Carolina from 2010. Under Governor Haley’s leadership, South Carolina was a national leader in economic development. She also ushered in the state’s largest education reform in decades—making education funding more equitable for schools in the state's poorest communities, prioritizing reading in early grades, and equipping classrooms with the latest technology.

Born in Bamberg, South Carolina, Haley is the daughter of Indian immigrants and a graduate of Clemson University. She and her husband, Michael, a Major in the South Carolina Army National Guard and a combat veteran, have two children, Rena, 20, and Nalin, 17.
