Haley said. "I get it".

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley zinged Sen.

Warren, a Democratic senator expected to run for the White House in 2020, has claimed Native American ancestry and recently cited a DNA test report in support though it was widely scorned for the remote possibility it indicated - at least one Native American ancestor six to 10 generations ago.

He added that he was now interviewing five candidates to be Washington's next ambassador to the United Nations.

The Al Smith Dinner, a white-tie gala featuring prominent politicians, was one of Haley's first appearances since announcing her resignation in an Oval Office meeting with the president October 9. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., are "from the same tribe". "Let me tell you", Haley said.

Saudi officials have strongly denied any involvement in his disappearance and say that he left the consulate soon after arriving. He also said Mr Pompeo would be leaving for Saudi Arabia in the next hour, adding that "we're going to leave nothing uncovered".

Trump "said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments", she continued. "It really killed at the United Nations, I got to tell you". Last year, you went with Paul Ryan, who's a Boy Scout, which is all right, but a little boring. So this year, you wanted to spice things up again.

"I really am super excited to be at the Al Smith Dinner".

"Everyone in Washington called me with advice about this speech". "Actually I saw Jeff Sessions earlier today, but not in NY, I saw him on LinkedIn looking for a job". I saw him on LinkedIn looking for a job.

"Jeff Flake was going to be here, but he wanted to give the Federal Bureau of Investigation a week to look into it".

Haley turned to de Blasio, who was seated near his fellow Democrat Andrew Cuomo, the governor of NY, and reminded him that she has "diplomatic immunity" as a member of the United Nations delegation. "Actually, there was a benefit", she said. That's the process Haley began on Thursday night in NY. The soon-to-be-ex-Trump-staffer also appeared to use the event to rebuke her boss' recent rhetoric on political opposition.

"In our toxic political environment, I've heard some people in both parties describe their opponents as enemies or evil", Ms Haley said.

"In America, our political opponents are not evil", she pointed out, noting that crimes committed against political opponents in Syria and Sudan are real instances of evil.

Thursday night's speech was the first major public appearance Haley has made since she announced last week her intention to resign from her post at the end of the year.

"We'll have somebody great.we're going to pick somebody very quickly", Trump said following an October 20 rally in the city of Elko, Nevada.

While Haley's address also poked fun at the president and other members of the Trump administration, her comments on Warren prompted some criticism online.
