Nikki Haley slams 'disgusting' rumor of affair with Trump

Nikki Haley slams 'disgusting' rumor of affair with Trump”

Ms Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said the reports were symptomatic of the attacks powerful women frequently encounter.

Politico attributed the online speculation about her and Trump to Wolff, who recently published "Fire and Fury", a book that is critical of Trump and claims to reveal the inside story of the White House.

Nikki Haley called rumors of an affair with President Donald Trump "disgusting" and "highly offensive" in an interview with POLITICO's Women Rule podcast on Thursday.

Haley said that the assertion was "absolutely not true" and that she had "literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when [she] was there". "And I think any woman who has felt violated or felt mistreated in any way, they have every right to speak up".

As a matter of fact, Haley has often been at odds with the President even stating during his run in 2016 that she "was not a fan" to which he tweeted the response that "The people of SC are embarrassed by Nikki Haley!"

"It is absolutely not true", she told the podcast.

The political Twittersphere quickly erupted with Washington's new guessing game, and settled on a paragraph that claimed Trump "had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future". "I've never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him", she said.

The 46-year-old married mother of two said she's faced similar insinuations in the past and dismissed it as resentment borne from jealousy.

Bottom line: Nikki Haley denies that she is having an affair with Trump, and finds the idea "highly offensive" and "disgusting".

She added: "This isn't something that's just happened as a Cabinet member: I saw this as a legislator, I saw this when I was governor, I see it now, I see them do it to other women".

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley speaks during a brief press availability at UN headquarters in New York City on January 2, 2018.

"Fire and Fury" is Wolff's tell-all book about the Trump administration.

When asked about the 16 allegations of sexual misconduct circling Trump, the ambassador doubled down on her support for women.
