In a new book, former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, condemned the president’s remarks on the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville in 2017, where one person died and dozens were left injured after a man drove his car into a crowd.
Haley, who resigned from her post in October 2018, wrote in her upcoming book, “With All Due Respect: Defending America with Grit and Grace,” that the president had initially “called out the haters and made it clear that they would not be tolerated.”
However, in a press conference the following day, Trump equivocated his response, saying there were “some very bad people” and “very fine people” on both sides.
The president’s amended response prompted Haley to call the president and tell him to “stop acknowledging the haters” and “understand the power of your voice.”
