U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley faced backlash Tuesday for a tweet saying she spent the Fourth of July in meetings about North Korea.
“Spending my 4th in meetings all day. #ThanksNorthKorea,” Haley tweeted.

North Korea claimed Tuesday that it performed its first successful test of an intercontinental ballistic missile.
This isn't the first time Haley has been critiqued for her social media presence: A tweet she posted last month about cutting funds for U.N. peacekeeping was met with confused reactions.
Haley quickly received criticism for complaining about the meetings.

This is your job 24/7 until you're out. You want a vacation? Quit. We need public servants. Serve or leave.— Pete Forester (@pete_forester) July 4, 2017
Kim Jong-un rubs his hands together and says, "Excellent. Inconveniencing Nikki Haley was the entire purpose of the missile launch." https://t.co/ENYRiWXod5— The Rude Pundit (@rudepundit) July 4, 2017
