Speaking with host CBS John Dickerson, Haley commended the women who have come forward as part of the #MeToo movement, saying, “I’m proud of their strength. I’m proud of their courage.”

Asked about Trump’s accusers, the presidential appointee reportedly stunned White House insiders, after she stated, “They should be heard, and they should be dealt with.
