Executive Branch

As it relates to the checks and balances of our American government, the Executive Branch is responsible for the daily administration of the state bureaucracy. The head of the Executive Branch is the President of the United States. Underneath the President are the several Departments that have been created by Executive Order. The Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Justice are just a few examples of these subgroups within the Executive Branch. The representative leaders of these departments are collectively known as the President’s “Cabinet” of advisors.

Since the Executive Branch of our government is in charge of administrating the affairs of the nation, it is important to keep them in our prayers. The Executive Branch directs the general political flow of the federal government.

Nikki Haley, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations

Nimrata “Nikki” Haley was born in January 1972 in South Carolina to parents who are immigrants from Punjab, India. She is a graduate of Clemson University, holding a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting.

Haley worked for a waste management and recycling company before joining her mother’s upscale clothing firm as chief financial officer. She was active in the local Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Women Business Owners.

She served six years in the South Carolina House of Representatives before being elected Governor of South Carolina, a position she held for another six years. In late November, 2016, President-elect Donald Trump announced his intention to nominate Haley for Ambassador to the United Nations, which was formally sent to the Senate on January 20, 2017. Four days later, Haley was confirmed by the Senate in a 96-4 vote.

Haley was raised as a Sikh. In September 1996, she married Michael Haley with both Sikh and Methodist ceremonies. She converted to Christianity and attends a United Methodist Church. The couple has two children.

 

IN THE NEWS

The shelling and body counts have resumed in eastern Ukraine as Russian-backed separatists have stoked a surge of fighting in the worst violence there since 2015. The U.S. and the West should keep sanctions clamped onto the Kremlin, according to the new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

The Kremlin’s motives for renewing conflict in eastern Ukraine aren’t clear. It could be that Russian President Vladimir Putin is testing American President Donald Trump, although that is impossible to know. Whatever the rationale, it is up to the U.S. and the UN to keep the pressure on the Kremlin dialed up, according to Ambassador Haley.
