Nikki Haley: Kushner Is ‘Such A Hidden Genius That No One Understands’

Speaking to Fox News on Tuesday morning following her resignation, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley called Jared Kushner a “hidden genius that no one understands.”

Haley, who announced her resignation alongside President Trump earlier that day, said that it’s not just the president she wants to thank for the experience — she also has a deep gratitude for Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

“Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands,” she said of the senior adviser and president’s son-in-law. “I mean, to re-do the NAFTA deal the way he did. What I’ve done working with him on the Middle East Peace Plan — it is so unbelievably well done.”

She described Ivanka as a “great friend.”

“They do a lot of things behind the scenes that I wish more people knew about,” Haley said, gushing about the couple, “because we are a better country because they’re in this administration.”
