LONDON: United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has said that the rumours of her having an affair with President Donald Trump are “disgusting” and “highly offensive.Since Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States, the country―and the world―has witnessed a stormy, outrageous, and absolutely mesmerizing presidential term that reflects the volatility and fierceness of the man elected Commander-in-Chief.
The rumors stem from author Michael Wolff of the best-seller “Fire and Fury,” who suggested in an interview that Trump was having an affair and that the liaison was with someone detailed in his book.
Wolff wrote in his book that Haley, the most high-profile woman in Trump’s administration, was positioning herself as the president’s heir apparent.In an interview with Politico’s Women Rule podcast on Thursday, Haley shot down talk of being romantically involved with the US president.
“It is absolutely not true,” Haley said. “It is highly offensive, and it’s disgusting.She hit back at Wolff’s assertion in his book that she was spending a lot of private time with Trump on his presidential plane and in the Oval Office.I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there,” Haley said.He says that I’ve been talking a lot with the president in the Oval about my political future. I’ve never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him.
