Nikki Haley said 'everyone' at the U.N. was talking about Burma. Everyone but Trump.

By David Nakamura September 21 at 8:36 PM

NEW YORK -- U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley was ticking through a list of the major topics at the United Nations General Assembly here this week when she got to the one "everyone had to talk about" -- Burma.

All of the foreign diplomats "had an opinion" about the rampant ethnic violence crisis in the Southeast Asian nation of 53 million, she told reporters Thursday. But there seemed to be one glaring omission -- her boss, President Trump.

In his 4,600-word address at the U.N. on Tuesday, Trump made no mention of the crisis that has sent more than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims fleeing military violence into neighboring Bangladesh. The president has not made any public remarks on the conflagration, even as international condemnation mounts on the Burmese government, including its de facto leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.

Trump appears not to have spoken to Suu Kyi since he took office -- a sharp contrast from former president Barack Obama, who made two presidential visits to her home in Rangoon during his tenure.

If Haley said Burma maybe she shouldn't be talking.
