Nikki Haley calls rumors of affair with Donald Trump ‘disgusting’
The United Nations Ambassador to the United States Nikki Haley has rejected rumors that she was having an affair with President Donald Trump, calling the speculation "disgusting" and "highly offensive."
Haley's comments comes days after Michael Wolff, author of an explosive tell-all book about Trump's first year in office, hinted at the affair last week on HBO's Real Time With Bill Maher.
Wolff appeared on Real Time with Bill Maher made a shocking claim - that the president who is currently fighting off claims that he carried on an affair with an adult film star more than a decade ago is still being unfaithful to his wife, having an affair while occupying the Oval Office.
In the appearance, Wolff said that he hinted at the affair near the end of his tell-all book, Fire and Fury, though he apparently did not have enough hard evidence to make the claim outright.
"It is absolutely not true," Haley told Politico. "I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there."
Haley added that "he says that I've been talking a lot with the president in the Oval about my political future - I've never talked once to the president about my future and I am never alone with him."
"At every point in my life, I've noticed that if you speak your mind and you're strong about it and you say what you believe, there is a small percentage of people that resent that and the way they deal with it is to try and throw arrows, lies or not," Haley added.
