On "Fox News Sunday", Nikki Haley, the us ambassador to the United Nations, said President Trump's decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital will speed up the Middle East peace process.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard".

Appearing Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation", Haley was asked about the cultural shift resulting from the #MeToo Movement by host John Dickerson, as well as the recent resignations and allegations in Congress.

She says women who raise complaints of harassment will "bring a conscience to the situation".

"I understand [Republicans] would like to retain that seat in the U.S. Senate", he continued, " but I tell you what, there's a time - we call it a tipping point.

Trump has been sued for defamation in NY by one of his accusers, Summer Zervos, a former contestant on "The Apprentice" who says Trump groped and kissed her in a hotel room in 2007 during a meeting to discuss a job opportunity.

Haley went on to say that there have been "great negotiations" and that they will continue to do that. The White House has said the women who have accused Trump were lying and that the voters rejected their accusations when they elected Trump.

"And does the election mean that's a settled issue?" "Given that consciousness, how do you think people should assess the accusers of the president?"

"I am incredibly proud of the women who have come forward". "My question is, why isn't Donald Trump doing the same thing - who has more serious allegations against him, with more women who have come forward".

More than 10 women have accused Trump of sexual misconduct before he was elected. I'm proud of their strength. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has confirmed that to be the White House's official position.

On Tuesday, voters in the heavily Republican state of Alabama will cast their ballots in a race involving Republican Roy Moore, a former state judge, and Democrat Doug Jones, a former US attorney.

On Sunday, Haley, who was the first female governor of SC, praised the courage of women who have raised complaints of harassment in various industries, including government and Hollywood, saying they will "bring a conscience to the situation". "I didn't vote for Roy Moore, but I wrote in a distinguished Republican name, and I think a lot of people could do that".
