Could United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley be the first female president?
Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov said people on both sides of the aisle think so.
Haley has been credited with helping make the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un a reality.
Haley, who previously served as the governor of South Carolina, played a key role in achieving what the Trump administration calls a “maximum pressure campaign” on North Korea, including getting all 15 members of the United Nations Security Council to place crippling sanctions on the rogue regime.

“Ambassador Haley’s diplomacy behind the scenes, in particular with the Chinese ambassador here, as well as the Russian ambassador, made it very, very clear that we were not kidding around,” a U.S. official told Fox News.
On "Outnumbered" on Tuesday, Tarlov said she's a fan of Haley, particularly because the UN ambassador has been one of the few members of the Trump administration who has shown a willingness to be oppositional to the president.
Tarlov said that she doesn't agree with all of Haley's decision and political beliefs, but there's no doubt that she's a "force."
"I've actually heard a lot of people on both sides of the aisle say if we're going to have our first female president, it could very likely be Nikki Haley," Tarlov said.
Melissa Francis said Haley has been the "surprise rock star" of the Trump administration.
"She's so tough and she's so consistent," Francis said. "And you just know you're not going to move her. And that has been a huge strength and a huge surprise at the UN."
