The Huffington Post reports:
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Wednesday claimed President Donald Trump’s speech at the United Nations General Assembly a day earlier drew laughs because world leaders “loved his honesty” and “respect” him.
Trump’s boastful comment describing his administration as one of the most accomplished in U.S. history sparked laughter not because attendees of the annual summit found the comment ridiculous ― but because it was so “honest,” Haley said during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.”
“They loved how honest he is,” Haley said. “It’s not diplomatic and they find it funny. When he goes and he is very truthful, they kind of were taken back by it.”
