NEW YORK (WCIV) — In an exclusive interview with South Carolina's WCIV Friday, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump's use of Twitter. Despite the criticism he has received, Ambassador Haley supports her boss.

Asked by Bill Burr if Trump's controversial tweets have made her job more difficult, Haley defended the president's outreach to the American people on social media.

"I understand why he wants to tweet. That is who he is. That is what he’s always going to do," she said. "I understand his style at times gives people heartburn. But he is the President. And if that’s what he wants to communicate to the American people, you know, he has that right."

When the former South Carolina governor was asked about her future political aspirations, she said, "You kind of just have to leave it up to God. And whatever is meant to happen will."

Haley does expect to return to her home state after her work is done in the Trump administration. "The only thing I know for sure is we’re all going to end up in South Carolina when it’s done.," she told WCIV. "So we miss South Carolina and that’s definitely going to be home.”

When Bill Burr pressed Haley about the possibility of a "Southern wing of the White House," Haley laughed. "I’m not going to say no. But it’s not something I ever think about.”
