Days after announcing resignation, Nikki Haley mocks President Trump

Nikki Haley the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations chairs a meeting of the U.N. Security Council on Sept. 17

Nikki Haley poked fun at her Indian heritage and roasted both President Donald Trump and Senator Elizabeth Warren during a speech at a white-tie gala in NY on Thursday evening. Elizabeth Warren and other high-profile politicians in a lighthearted speech on Thursday.

Despite the speculation, Haley said during an October 9 meeting with Trump, "No, I'm not running in 2020".

Thursday night's speech was the first major public appearance Haley has made since she announced last week her intention to resign from her post at the end of the year.

"Actually, when the President found out that I was Indian-American, he asked if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren", she quipped.

Trump "said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments", she continued.

Haley's hilarious zing at Warren came after the Democratic presidential hopeful released the results of her DNA test in an attempt to validate her claims that she is Native American.

Indian-American Nikki Haley, the outgoing US Ambassador to the United Nations, has poked fun at President Donald Trump's inflated ego and his cultural ignorance, days after announcing that she would be leaving her position representing America at the world body.

On a serious note, Haley delivered a sharp rebuke of Trump's divisive politics, saying opponents are not evil.


Haley made more jokes at the Smith dinner, as reported by CNN.

"The president called me this morning and gave some really good advice".

Among other jokes, Haley also shared a piece of advice President Trump gave her: "he said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments-it really killed at the United Nations, I gotta tell you". The soon-to-be-ex-Trump-staffer also appeared to use the event to rebuke her boss' recent rhetoric on political opposition.

"In South Sudan, where rape is routinely used as a weapon of war, that is evil", she said, cited by Politico. "I get it, you wanted an Indian woman, but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test", she said.

Haley also said Arizona Sen.

"She's done a fantastic job and we've done a fantastic job together", Trump during the meeting.

Haley's parents are immigrants from Punjab, India. "As a private citizen, I look forward to supporting your re-election as president and supporting the policies that will continue to move our great country toward even greater heights".
