Nikki Haley, the U.N. Ambassador, said, President Trump reached his goal when he called Kim Jong Un “Rocket Man” during his speech Tuesday.
The first time President Trump called Kim Jong Un the “Rocked Man” was Saturday via Twitter. And after receiving positive reaction he decided to include it in his speech in front of the United Nations, saying “Rocket Man is on a suicide mission.”
I spoke with President Moon of South Korea last night. Asked him how Rocket Man is doing. Long gas lines forming in North Korea. Too bad!

Haley appeared on Good Morning America, where she was asked by the host George Stephanopoulos, whether it was “appropriate” for Trump to call Kim Jong Un “The Rocket Man” in front the U.N.
“Well I’ll tell you, George, it worked,” Haley said.
“I was talking to a president of an African country yesterday and he actually cited ‘Rocket Man’ back to me … Look, This is a way of getting people to talk about him, but every other international community now is referring to him as ‘Rocket Man,’” she said.
Stephanopoulos claimed that the speech disturbed some feathers, mainly the part when Trump said America will “totally destroy” North Korea if it comes to war and asked Haley to say something about that.
“Well, I think what you saw yesterday from the president was he was being honest,” she said.

“I know that people and countries don’t want to hear it, but here’s a man who continues to test ballistic missiles, he continues to test new hydrogen bombs, he continues to threaten our allies, he says he’s going to destroy the United States to ashes, he says he’s going to continue to send us gift packages to the United States,” she said.
“So if you want to talk about who’s been giving us threats it’s certainly been the Kim regime,” she said.
Haley added that U.S. has “exhausted every diplomatic means” to deal with North Korea, including sanctions and dialogue.
“And we are going to continue to do that. While he is being irresponsible, we’re going to be responsible,” Haley said. “The international community actually very much appreciated the blunt, honest approach that the president took on North Korea.”
As for Kim’s new label?
“That’s a Trump original,” Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. “He is a master at branding.”
