The US ambassador to the United Nations has resolutely denied rumors of an affair with President Trump, calling the insinuations “disgusting” and “highly offensive.”
It all started when Michael Wolff, the author of the tell-all book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” which the US President described as a “fiction,” claimed that Trump was having a romance with a mystery woman in the White House.
"You just have to read between the lines," he said in an interview on HBO’s Real Time. "Now that I’ve told you, when you hit that paragraph, you’ll say bingo."
People soon singled out a paragraph that mentioned Haley and the rumor started spreading.
“The president had been spending a notable amount of private time with Haley on Air Force One and was seen to be grooming her for a national political future,” the passage read.
In an interview with Politico, Haley proceeded to say that Wolff’s allegation was “absolutely not true,” and that he included a factual mistake when he wrote that.
“I have literally been on Air Force One once and there were several people in the room when I was there,” Haley said.
The ambassador’s statement spurred a wave of reactions among netizens, denouncing Wolff for the speculation and saying that he has crossed the line…

Anyone who thinks Ms. Haley would engage in such conduct must be a rabid, Anti-American Leftist. Why do Dems hate women so much. Wolff should be sued.
Tabloid #FakeNews Author Michael Wolff has crossed a line that should even make Democrats cringe, starting a disgusting rumor of an extramarital affair between the President & Ambassador Nikki Haley. The Left has no shame. https://t.co/MlCivFxNUO— David Burke (@ConservativeTht) 26 января 2018 г.

The fact that Nikki Haley even has to defend herself against having an affair with Trump 🤢— Allie Beth Stuckey (@conservmillen) 26 января 2018 г.
Michael Wolff's affair accusations against Nikki Haley are disgusting and serve as proof that his book is nothing more than fan fiction for the anti-Trumper.— #ThePersistence (@ScottPresler) 26 января 2018 г.
Ambassador Haley stood up to the UN; I hope she sues the pants off of you.#FridayFeeling #NikkiHaley
Michael Wolff suggesting Trump had an affair with Nikki Haley is the biggest Fake News yet. This guy is a smear merchant for the democrat party, he is an evil evil man. This guy should be deported and never allowed back.— Mike (@mike_Zollo) 26 января 2018 г.
I’m sick of these baseless allegations against Trump!
Earlier in January media uncovered an interview by an ex-porn star, whose stage name is Stormy Daniels, who claimed she had an affair with Donald Trump shortly after he married Melania Trump. The Wall Street Journal has alleged that President Trump had paid for her silence. His lawyer and the adult film actress herself denied the report.
