Exiting U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley came forth this Tuesday to boast White House senior adviser Jared Kushner as being the “hidden genius” of the Trump administration.
Haley commented on the Oval Office after announcing her resignation at the end of the year.
“I can’t say enough good things about Jared and Ivanka [Trump],” she said. “Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands.”
Haley gushed over Kushner for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement deal this past week
“To redo the NAFTA deal the way he did,” she said before listing off his alleged accomplishments. “What I’ve done working with him on the Middle East peace plan … it is so unbelievably well-done.”

Kushner who is Trump’s son in law has been given the massive responsibility of forming a Middle East peace plan to resolve the heated tensions between Israel and Palestine.
Haley also said of Ivanka Trump “she is a great friend.”
“They do a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about,” she said. “We’re a better country because they’re in this administration.”
Haley during her public announcement revealed that she would not be running in 2020, swearing instead to campaign for the president that year.
Trump while sitting next to Haley, informed reporters that she wanted to “take a break” from public service. He said she would be welcome back in to the administration “in any position she wanted.”
Numerous reports have indicated that those closest to Haley were shocked by her decision to exit the administration.
Here’s how Americans reacted:
Maybe 'Genius Jared' should step out of the shadows and show us what he's got, 'cause all I've seen so far is ascendence via acquaintance.@nikkihaley is scratching the backs of the rich and powerful in the hopes they will propel her to Presidency one day. #SellOut

Very hidden – actually non-existent

Can she help Jared be more hidden?
