NIKKI HALEY: Good evening. I'm Nikki Haley, and it's great to be back at the Republican National Convention. I'll start with a little story. It's about an American ambassador to the United Nations, and it's about a speech she gave to this convention.

She called for the re-election of the Republican president she served, and she called out his Democratic opponent, a former vice president from a failed administration. That ambassador said, and I quote, "Democrats always blame America first." The year was 1984. The president was Ronald Reagan. And Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick's words are just as true today.

Joe Biden and the Democrats are still blaming America first. Donald Trump has always put America first. And he has earned four more years as president.

It was an honor of a lifetime to serve as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. Now the UN is not for the faint of heart. It's a place where dictators, murderers, and thieves denounce America, and then put their hands out and demand that we pay their bills.

Well, President Trump put an end to all of that. With his leadership, we did what Barack Obama and Joe Biden refused to do. We stood up for America, and we stood against our enemies.

Obama and Biden let North Korea threaten America. President Trump rejected that weakness, and we passed the toughest sanctions on North Korea in history. Obama and Biden let Iran get away with murder, and literally sent them a plane full of cash. President Trump did the right thing and ripped up the Iran nuclear deal.
