Trump is CEO of the country, can fire anyone he wants: Nikki Haley

U.S President Donald Trump is “CEO of the country, he can fire anyone he wants”, America’s envoy to the U.N Nikki Haley has said, while defending him for firing former FBI director James Comey.

Haley said she believed that the criticism of Trump stems from discomfort with his propensity to act on his decisions.

“The president is the CEO of the country,” Indian-origin Haley told. “He can hire and fire anyone he wants.”

She was responding to a question if she found herself having to explain to foreign diplomats Trump’s domestic policy decisions.

“I think what you can see is that this is a president of action,” she said of Trump. “The reason people are uncomfortable is because he acts.”

Asked whether the president sought a pledge of loyalty from her, Haley replied, “No”.

At the same time, she said that during her tenure as South Carolina’s governor demonstrations of “loyalty and trust” were important to her.
