The United Nations has warned that South Sudan’s civil war is providing “fertile ground” for a genocide.
After visiting South Sudanese refugees in Gambella, western Ethiopia on Tuesday and hearing of the brutal violence they fled, Nikki Haley asked a small group of reporters: “How can the international community allow this to go on?”
Haley said she planned to discuss with Trump what more the United States could do to end the violence in South Sudan.
