Hours after she slammed Russia for its response to a suspected chemical attack in Syria, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley faced a hostile crowd Wednesday night that booed and shouted for her to leave the Women in the World Summit.
After spending the day at the United Nations Security Council, the former governor of South Carolina sat down with MSNBC's Greta Van Susteren for a nearly 20-minute panel discussion at the New York event.
Echoing her statement from earlier in the day, Haley again doubled-down on Russia and its lack of response to the crisis in Syria.
"All they've done is seven times veto against Syria every time they do something to hurt their own people. And so Russia absolutely has not done what they're supposed to do, " Haley said of the Syrian ally.
But only moments into the conversation, the crowd began to turn on Haley. Susteren asked Haley why President Donald Trump has been critical of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and of President Barack Obama for inaction in Syria, but not Russia. 
Haley responded by saying she has been hard on Russia and is committed to calling them out when necessary. She then went on to say she has had discussions with Trump about Russia.
"Everyone wants to look at his words, but look at his actions," Haley said of Trump. "The two things that Russia doesn’t want to see the U.S. do is strengthen their military and expand energy. And the president has done both of those."
The crowd did not like her answer and booed in response.
According to one audience member who was tweeting at the event, the blow-back reaction was unlike anything she had ever seen at the event.

Haley would press onward, powering through intermittent boos while remaining focused on questions.
At one point, she reflected on the differences between serving as U.S. ambassador and governor of South Carolina.
"I felt responsible. I felt like I needed to take care of this state," Haley said of her time as governor. "Dealing with the world issues that we're dealing with, there's so many moving parts. We have to convince certain countries to act or not act, and we have to try and deal with the personalities of each country."
Susteren then asked Haley about what it is like dealing with dictators. Haley again stressed the need for calling people out when necessary. But seconds after Haley described America as "the moral conscience of the world," a person in the crowd hijacked the line of questioning.
