"Our President has not yet made a decision about possible action in Syria. But should the United States and our allies decide to act in Syria, it will be in defense of a principle on which we all agree," Haley told the U.N. Security Council."All nations and all people will be harmed if we allow Assad to normalize the use of chemical weapons," Haley said.

Asked on Wednesday about her relationship with the president, Haley told reporters it's "perfect," Reuters reported. A Politico report also indicated that the U.N. ambassador flashed a thumbs-up as she made the remark.

Reuters's New York bureau chief said Haley was also asked if Trump should be worried about a potential Vice President Pence and Haley presidential ticket in 2020. Haley reportedly "smiled, shook her head and said 'no' " in response.

Trump sought to block Pence pick for key national security post: report

  Trump sought to block Pence pick for key national security post: report President Trump reportedly tried to prevent Vice President Pence from appointing his chosen national security adviser, citing the staffer's past opposition to Trump's candidacy. Axios reported Sunday that Trump was upset when he learned Pence was hiring Jon Lerner to advise him on national security and foreign policy.

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said on Wednesday that her relationship with President Donald Trump was “ perfect ” and that he did not need to be worried about Haley and Vice President Mike Pence running against him in 2020.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations (U.N.) Nikki Haley insisted on Wednesday that her relationship with President Trump is " perfect Reuters's New York bureau chief said Haley was also asked if Trump should be worried about a potential Vice President Pence and Haley presidential ticket in 2020.

The comment came days after Haley said on CBS's "Face the Nation" that the Trump administration was preparing new sanctions against Russia in response to Moscow's support for the Syrian government after a suspected chemical attack on civilians in a rebel-controlled suburb of Damascus.

That claim reportedly angered President Trump, who had no such plans to slap new sanctions on Moscow, according to the Times. The White House later pushed back on Haley's claim.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said Tuesday that Haley must have had some "momentary confusion" when she discussed the purported sanctions.

Haley rebuked Kudlow's claim, saying that she doesn't "get confused."

The back-and-forth between Haley and the White House led to speculation that Haley had been kept out of Trump's foreign policy decision-making.

Haley's response: 'I don't get confused' draws notice .
U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley's response to a critical comment by a close adviser to President Donald Trump has drawn notice from the administration and from her admirers. She said simply, "I don't get confused," when the aide said that might have been a problem when she said Russia sanctions were coming. Haley's rejoinder to a putdown from a close Trump adviser about message confusion — she declared that "I don't get confused" — was seized as a rallying cry among some women and echoed the audacity the former governor displayed while upending the old boys' club in the South Carolina Statehouse.
