Nikki Haley headed to Israel in June


U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is heading to Israel this summer.

The Times of Israel reports that Haley is one of several Trump Administration officials heading to the Middle Eastern nation, including President Donald Trump.

Haley is scheduled to visit Israel in June, the paper reports, citing Israel’s Channel 2.

Haley is scheduled to arrive shortly after a separate visit by Trump to mark the 50th anniversary of Jerusalem Day, the day Israeli forces captured East Jerusalem in 1967’s Six Day War, reunifying the ancient capital city.

The former S.C. governor is a particularly popular Trump Administration member in Israel for her repeated castigations of anti-Israel bias at the UN, the Times said.
