Nikki Haley tears into top White House aide who said she was 'ahead of the curve' on Russia sanctions
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley on Face the Nation

In response to White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow's assertion that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley was "ahead of the curve" on her announcement of Russia sanctions, the top diplomat issued a statement refuting his comments.


"With all due respect," Haley's statement, read on-air at Fox News, said, "I don't get confused."

"There might have been some momentary confusion about that," Kudlow told CNN's Jeff Zeleney earlier on Tuesday about the sanctions Haley announced Sunday night on CBS' Face the Nation. "But if you talk with Steve Mnuchin at Treasury and so forth, he will tell you the same thing -- they're in charge of this -- we have had sanctions. Additional sanctions are under consideration but not implemented."
