US president elect Donald Trump is all set to take over as the President of the most powerful nation. Donald Trump is fond of Indians and this is very clear through his appointment of several Indian-Americans to many top positions.
Trump picked South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as the US ambassador to the United Nations.
She is the first woman to serve as the Governor of South Carolina at the age of 44. She is also the youngest governor in United States.
Nikki Haley, previously called Nimrata Randhawa was born on January 20, 1972 in Bamberg, South Carolina to Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhawa. She belongs to an Indian Sikh family. She got married to Michael Haley in 1996.
She would replace Samantha Power as the next US Ambassador to the United Nations.
The next Indian-American woman to make it to the top team of Trump is Seema Verma. She will head the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
She is the second Indian origin woman who has been offered a high-level post in the Trump administration after South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
President elect Donald Trump has always mentioned time and again about his love, respect and fondness for India. However, the induction of the Indian origin people certainly depicts that a strong foundation for the bilateral relationship has been laid by Trump already.
