Watch: Nikki Haley Says World Leaders Laughed At Trump Because They ‘Respect His Honesty’

Appearing on Fox News on Wednesday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley tried to hide the fact that President Donald Trump is now the laughing stock of the world by suggesting that world leaders laughed at Trump’s speech on Tuesday because they “respect and enjoy his honesty.”

Haley, in an interview on “Fox & Friends,” argued that negative media coverage of the president has hurt America’s standing in the world, and blamed reporters for misinterpreting why U.N. General Assembly members chuckled when Trump boasted that his administration’s accomplishments outdid nearly any other in American history.

“When he said that, they love how honest he is,” she said. “It’s not diplomatic, and they find it funny. I mean, when he goes and he is very truthful, they kind of were taken back by it.

“Whether he said good things about him or not, they love that he’s honest with them,” she added. “And they’ve never seen anything like it, so there’s a respect there. I saw that the media was trying to make it something disrespectful, that’s not what it was. They love to be with him.”

In the opening remarks of his speech on Tuesday, Trump touted that his administration “has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country in its first two years.

Audience members then began chuckling and the laughs grew louder when Trump said “so true.”

Haley cited the hoopla surrounding the laughter as an example of unfair criticism Trump has endured from the media and other observers.

“It’s gotten so disgusting really,” Haley said. “The idea that he’s not mentally fit, the idea that we would be talking about the 25th amendment. None of that is true. It could not be farther from the truth.”

Haley claimed that she spoke to a world leader yesterday, who she declined to name, that questioned why there was any coverage of impeachment deliberations or the 25th Amendment.

How can you honestly think a man who doesn’t know what he’s doing is getting this much done on jobs, on trade deals… Americans are living better than they ever have and you’re going to question his leadership.

“I looked at the media yesterday, and they all want to talk about what the worldview of the president is,” she said. “What they need to understand is the world doesn’t understand the media in America right now.”
