A couple of weeks ago I wrote up former U.S. ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley's parting shot at the United Nations.
I spoke too soon. It's clear that Haley is still taking the assembly to task for its anti-Israel agenda.

Here's what the private citizen had to say about the UN after it elected Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas to represent as the leader of the Group of 77. The bloc, which was originally made up of 77 member states, has grown to 134 member states, and represents at least 80 percent of the world’s population, as the Jewish Telegraphic Agency explained.

The House speaker also cited concern over whether a partially closed government could provide proper security for the address — but was quickly rebuked.

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen denied anyone's safety would be compromised, saying that both Homeland Security Department and Secret Service "are fully prepared to support and secure the State of the Union."
