Kristi Noem To Correct Wrong Claims Made In New Book

South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem is going back to correct some of the claims she made in her new book after some of them have received scrutiny.

In her soon-to-be-released book, “No Going Back,” Noem said that she met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un while she was a Congress Member on the House Armed Services Committee.

“Through my tenure on the House Armed Services Committee, I had the chance to travel to many countries to meet with world leaders. I remember when I met with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. I’m sure he underestimated me, having no clue about my experience staring down little tyrants (I’d been a children’s pastor, after all),” she wrote in the book, which has faced scrutiny for her revelation of how she killed her dog.

However, her claims were disputed by Syd Seiler, a former U.S. intelligence officer who spent his career working on America’s relationship with North Korea, who said that, “Nothing like this happened.”

Noem’s team has said that corrections would be made to future copies of the book that are published, chalking up the claims to an error.

Noem also drew scrutiny for claiming that she was going to have a meeting with French President Emmanuel Macron but decided to cancel on him.

That claim too was dispelled by Macron’s office, who told AP that no “direct invitation” was made for Noem to have a meeting with Macron. The office, however, said that she could have been invited to an event where he was also scheduled to be.

According to Noem’s spokesperson, she was “invited to sit in President Macron’s box for the Armistice Day Parade at Arc de Triomphe. Following his anti-Israel comments, she chose to cancel.”

Noem also said some things about former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley which has been disputed by a spokesperson for Haley. According to Noem, she got word in the summer of 2021 that Haley wanted to have a conversation with her.

“Hi, Governor, this is Ambassador Nikki Haley, and I just wanted to introduce myself and have a conversation. I just wanted to let you know that I follow you quite a bit. I have heard quite a bit about you, and you are doing a good job there in South Dakota. I was thinking that maybe you might like a mentor, and maybe I could be someone who could do that for you. Because you’re a governor, you’ve gone through some challenging things that I did as well. I would be more than willing to be a mentor, because you’ve never been in this type of role before,” Haley said, according to Noem’s book.

According to her, Haley threatened her in the conversation.

“Yeah, I’m pretty sure I was just threatened by Nikki Haley. It was clear that she wanted me to know that there was only room for one Republican woman in the spotlight. It was weird,” she wrote.

Haley’s spokesperson Chaney Denton denied the South Dakota governor’s claim, saying, “Nikki has long called and written notes supporting other women when they go through challenging times. She called Governor Noem in 2020 to encourage her when she was criticized for keeping her state open during Covid. How she would twist that into a threat is just plain weird.”
