Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, on Sunday said that there is “no question” Russia interfered with the 2016 election.

“Russia was involved in the election. There’s no question about that,” Haley said on ABC’s “This Week.”

“We don’t want any country involved in our elections, ever. And so once that information comes out, I expect that that will be handled accordingly,” she said.

Haley said that President Donald Trump “is not stopping” her “from beating up on Russia.”

“There’s no love or anything going on with Russia right now,” she said.

As for Trump’s equivocation when it comes to criticizing Russia and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Haley said: “He’s got a lot of things he’s doing.”
