United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley told CNN’s Jake Tapper that President Donald Trump’s administration still considers Russia an ally.
“I want to get your reaction to new CNN polls out just minutes ago. Look at how Americans view Russia now compared to 2014,” Tapper showed Haley. “Forty-one percent say Russia is friendly. That’s almost double the numbers from three years ago. In 2014, 16 percent said Russia is friendly and now 56 percent of Americans say that. I don’t think it’s a mystery that President Trump has said very very positive things about Russia until about three weeks ago. This must alarm you that your party seems to have a different view of Putin than you do.”
Haley swore it didn’t alarm her at all and that the president has stood an amazing job showing strength on foreign issues.
“We’ve said if we can work with them, we will, especially on terrorism efforts, we can do that, but if they do something wrong we’re going to call them out,” Haley said. “It means we work with them when we can and when we can’t work with them, we say the truth.”
Tapper asked Haley if Russia was a friend or an ally.
“I think Russia’s an ally when they want to be and they’re not an ally when they don’t want to be,” Haley admitted. “The days they’re an ally I will work with them.”

‘I love how this is eating you alive’: Rick Wilson dances on the grave of Trump’s corrupt G7 gambit
Conservative Rick Wilson on Monday taunted President Donald Trump after he was forced to scrap his plan to host next year's G7 summit at his own golf course.
Reacting to the president's Monday morning tweet in which he bitterly complained about having to cancel plans to award a massive government contract to his own business, Wilson roasted the president for his shameless effort to profit off his office.
"I love how this is eating you alive," Wilson wrote. "The mismatch between the economic status of your supporters and the price point of your resorts is exactly why you keep flogging the hell out of them. Your brand is failing, broken, and poisonous."
Trump melts down in cabinet meeting when questioned about ISIS: ‘It was me who captured them’
President Donald Trump reportedly excoriated members of the media on Monday after he was questioned about his decision to pull troops out of Kurdish areas of Syria.
"Plenty of Turks have been killed because of conflicts on their borders," Trump said, according to a pool report. "ISIS was all over the place... it was me who captured them."
After criticizing President Barack Obama, the president continued.
"I'm the one who did the capturing," Trump insisted. "I'm the one who knows more about it than you people or fake pundits."
The View’s Joy Behar nails ‘sad truth’ about spiteful Trump voters: ‘They don’t want health care if you get it also’
Joy Behar nailed the "sad truth" about spiteful supporters of President Donald Trump.
"The View" co-host pointed to a New York Times column written by University of Florida professor Darlena Cunha, who spoke with some of her neighbors about their support for the scandal-plagued Republican president.
One man who struck up a conversation with the writer apologized right away for his poor dental health, which he couldn't afford to improve, but said he'd rather do without health care than pay for someone he didn't think deserved it.
