WASHINGTON — Former S.C. governor Nikki Haley was sworn in as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations on Wednesday morning.
Hours later, the President Donald Trump administration was preparing executive orders aimed at drastically reducing the United States' role in the world governing body, according to the New York Times.
The Times was among the first to report the White House is drafting executive orders calling for curbing the U.S. role in the United Nations and other international organizations.
Another order would launch a process of review for certain types of multilateral treaties.
The first of the two draft orders, titled “Auditing and Reducing U.S. Funding of International Organizations” and obtained by The New York Times, calls for terminating funding for any United Nations agency or other international body that meets any one of several criteria.
Haley was in Washington on Wednesday to receive her U.N. ambassador oath from Vice President Mike Pence. She met with Trump in the Oval Office afterward.
