Nikki Haley Resigns As UN Ambassador

The US President said Ms Haley would be leaving the administration "at the end of the year".

Haley, who was confirmed as ambassador shortly after President Trump was inaugurated, offered her resignation Tuesday morning and will serve through the end of 2018.

Appearing beside Haley in the Oval Office, Trump praised her and said he hoped she could come back to the administration in another capacity. But the Post's John Hudson speculates Haley's opposition also could've driven her departure.

And Michael Ian Black joked: 'He's going to make Ivanka UN Ambassador.

Mrs Haley told reporters that despite speculation, she was not planning to run for president in 2020.

"No, I am not running in 2020", Haley said, adding that she will campaign for Trump in the next general election cycle.

Mr Trump said he would be announcing her successor within two or three weeks. The move was surprising to some given Ms Haley's relative inexperience with global politics. "It's a great position", Trump said, as he praised Haley for making the position "more glamorous" and "more important".

"I proudly serve in this administration, and I enthusiastically support most of its decisions and the direction it is taking the country", Haley wrote at the time. But she also hinted at her disagreements with the president, saying she had a "personal conversation" with Trump about his response to white supremacist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia a year ago. She's helped rein in Iranian aggression, moved progress on a denuclearized North Korea, assured Israel we have her back, and overall just gained the USA more respect on the worldwide stage. Congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters and some key US allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House. She informed her staff Tuesday, NPR's Michele Kelemen reports. "I am saddened that she is leaving the administration, but so grateful for her service". Trump tweeted that "The people of SC are embarrassed by Nikki Haley". And she has cast herself as someone who can sway her mercurial boss on issues like Russian Federation sanctions, refugee resettlement and the value of the United Nations itself.

Haley said she and Trump together had "solved a lot of problems".

CNN has referred to her as "the breakout star" of Trump's cabinet. Fayad is considered a moderate leader with close ties to former Israeli and American officials, and Haley's actions against him were seen as too harsh by some mainstream supporters of Israel in the United States.

The president told reporters he had heard Ivanka's name discussed for the post, but he knew if he selected her he would be accused of nepotism.
