She also expressed support for the U.S. permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, who last weekend promised that sanctions will be imposed on Monday under the pretext of Russian support of the Syrian authorities. Then in mass media there were reports that trump told to wait until additional sanctions.
“I’m not going to comment on what she (Hailey — ed.) said or didn’t say. She is a very valuable and respected member of our foreign policy team… we strongly support it,” said Nauert.
