NYT Smears Nikki Haley for Lavish Curtains Ordered Under Obama

The New York Times reported that the State Department spent $52,701 last year buying customized, mechanized curtains for UN Ambassador Nikki R. Haley’s official residence, implying that she is laving a lavish lifestyle at a time when the department was undergoing deep budget cuts and had frozen hiring.

Buried in the article is the revelation that the plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration, and that Haley had no say in the purchase. In addition, “Haley’s residence is particularly grand since it is used for official entertaining.”
