Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted President Joe Biden’s address to the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday for failing to mention enemies by name.
“President Biden’s speech ignored the reality and seriousness of America’s threats and enemies. China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Venezuela, Afghanistan, and terrorism, to name a few,” Haley said following the president’s speech Tuesday, according to Fox News.
Under the Trump administration, the world knew where we stood. At the U.N., we took the names of our enemies and had the backs of our allies.

The former ambassador added that the U.S. stance on the “greatest national security threat” was clear when former President Donald Trump was in charge.
“With Joe Biden asleep at the switch, our friends don’t trust us, and our enemies are rejoicing,” Haley said.
During his first address to the U.N. General Assembly, Biden weighed in on global challenges but promised that the U.S. is “not seeking the new Cold War” with China.
