There was a bit of awkwardness at President Donald Trump's lunch with U.N. diplomats when he made an undiplomatic comment about Nikki Haley, his ambassador to the U.N. Trump was kicking off Monday's lunch with ambassadors of countries on the U.N. Security Council when he asked the room if they liked Haley. He said that if they didn't, "she could easily be replaced." Later, he said that wouldn't happen and that she was doing a "fantastic job."
