Nikki Haley Slams ‘Disgusting’ Rumors of Trump Affair

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley says she has had heard rumors of an affair between her and President Trump since the publication of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury, and she went on the record to deny them forcefully on Friday. The former governor of South Carolina said any speculation was “disgusting” and “highly offensive.” Wolff has dropped hints on his press tour about an affair between the president and an unidentified woman that would require a close reading of his bombshell book. “Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’re gonna say, ‘Bingo,’” said Wolff. Some speculated that Wolff meant a section of the book in which he claims the president was “spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future.” Haley told Politico in an interview published Friday that she has only been on Air Force One once. “He says that I’ve been talking a lot with the president in the Oval about my political future,” she said. “I’ve never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him.”
