Former Trump United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley told ABC News on Tuesday morning that that she still disagreed with President Donald Trump's characterization of Charlottesville white nationalist protesters as "very fine people" -- but also chalked it up to a disagreement over "style."


In a book published last year, Haley admitted that she was "deeply disturbed" by Trump's claim that some "very fine people" marched at the Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, even though it had been explicitly organized and advertised as a white nationalist rally.

When asked whether she stood by those words on ABC's "Good Morning America," Haley said, "oh, of course," and added that "there have been times where the president and I don't necessarily agree on the style."

Many Twitter users, however, were appalled that Haley would claim that praising white nationalists was just a quirk of the president's communications style -- check out some reactions below.
