Haley Defends Trump Calling Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man”

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Wednesday morning defended President Trump’s decision to refer to North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un as “rocket man” in his speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday.

“It worked,” Haley said when asked on ABC’s “Good Morning America” when asked if it was appropriate to call Kim Jong Un “rocket man.”

Haley added that it was a way of “getting people to talk about” North Korea.

“Every other international community is now referring to him as ‘rocket man,’” Haley said.

Haley said Trump was “being honest” when issuing a threat to North Korea during his address to the U.N.

“I know that people and countries don’t want to hear it,” she added. “If you want to talk about who’s been giving the threats, it’s certainly been the Kim regime.”
