ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Donald Trump's United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley is ready to get to work. She arrived at U.N. headquarters on Friday morning for her first day of work. Haley told reporters, "there is a new U.S. U.N." and promised to "show our strength, show our voice, have the backs of our allies and make sure that our allies have our back as well." The U.S. Senate voted almost unanimously to confirm South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as ambassador to the U.N., sending a rising Republican star to represent President Trump at an institution he has criticized. The United States and its frequent rivals Russia and China all hold permanent seats on the U.N. Security Council, along with U.S. allies Britain and France. Haley won plaudits at her hearing for promising to stand up to Russia and agreeing that its actions, including bombing hospitals in Syria, should be considered war crimes.
