U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said "there's no love" between the United States and Russia, during an interview with ABC's Martha Raddatz Sunday morning. 

Haley added that she's "beating up" on Russia amid the controversy over the White House's conduct during the Russia probe. 

"There's no love or anything going on with Russia right now," Haley told Raddatz. "They get that we're getting our strength back, that we're getting our voice back and that we're starting to lead again."

Raddatz asked Haley about President Trump's attitude toward Russia, pointing to the fact that he called the country's president Vladimir Putin a strong leader. Raddatz then asked whether Trump too should be "beating up on Russia." 

“He is not stopping me from beating up on Russia," Haley said. “He's not stopping me from talking about the pressure that China needs to be putting on North Korea. He's not stopping me on how we're working together to defeat ISIS." 


She added that the U.S. intends to hold Russia accountable on issues including Syria, Iran and human right's violations. 

Haley said the U.S. intends to pressure China to encourage North Korea to end its nuclear program as well.
