Nikki Haley Joins Trump And Blasts China For Being “Straight Out Of George Orwell”
In her first public remarks since announcing she is stepping down, Nikki Haley calls out Chinese internment camps. China has been under fire by President Trump after he received Intel that the foreign government has been meddling in the United States’ midterm elections.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused China of persecuting religious and ethnic minorities on a massive scale Monday in her first public remarks since announcing she would leave office last week, Fox News Reported.
“It is the largest internment of civilians in the world today,” Haley said in keynote remarks at the Chiefs of Defense Conference Dinner in Washington. “It may be the largest since World War II.”
The former South Carolina governor was particularly critical of Beijing’s crackdown on Uighur and other Muslim minorities in China’s northwest, which she described as being “straight out of George Orwell.”
“At least a million Uighurs and other Muslim minorities have been imprisoned in so-called ‘re-education camps’ in western China,” Haley said, noting that detainees are “tortured … forced to renounce their religion and to pledge allegiance to the Communist Party.”

Nikki Haley abruptly announced her resignation Tuesday as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, catching staff and lawmakers by surprise and leaving Washington guessing about the next move for one of the administration’s most prominent figures.
Speaking in the Oval Office alongside President Trump, who accepted the resignation, Haley said she would serve through the end of 2018. She preemptively sought to mute speculation she might run against her old boss, stressing that she will support Trump and will not campaign for the White House in 2020.
Haley called her time at the U.N. a “blessing,” but offered no reason for leaving other than a belief that government officials must know “when it’s time to step aside.”
Trump told reporters that Haley did “an incredible job” and is a “fantastic person.” He said she had told him six months ago that she wanted to take a break “maybe at the end of the year.”
