ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) New U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, pledged on Friday (January 27) to overhaul the world body and warned U.S. allies that if they do not have Washington's back then she is "taking names" and will respond. Haley pulled up the U.N. headquarters in New York in a black SUV where a large group of media and U.N. staff were waiting for her arrival. Haley made brief remarks to the press as she arrived and then went on to present her credentials to U.N. chief Antonio Guterres. Haley was governor of South Carolina from 2011 before being confirmed almost unanimously by the U.S. Senate on Jan. 24 as U.S. President Donald Trump's choice to represent the United States at the U.N. In her remarks to the Senate, Haley promised to press for U.N. reforms but also fight for human rights and support international institutions, often breaking from Trump's positions.
