  • Nikki Haley resigns as United States Ambassador to the United Nations

Axios reported that Haley and Trump discussed her resignation last week, when she visited the White House.

Speaking to reporters Tuesday, Trump himself said he would consider Powell for the role.

"I don't agree with the president on everything", Haley wrote in her September 7 op-ed.

When Powell departed the White House in December, after less than a year on the job, several Trump advisors praised her and appeared to keep open the possibility that she could make a return.

Haley, 46, is the latest in a long line of high-profile departures from the administration, such as former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was sacked in March, and Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist, who left in August 2017.

Swan's report was soon confirmed by Trump.

Haley "has been very special to me", he said.

Trump said he will name a replacement for Haley in the next two or three weeks.

So she may be one of the few Trump officials who departs without becoming an object of ridicule, scorn, or the attention of prosecutors.

Congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters and some key US allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House. When the sanctions never materialized, White House officials said the plans had changed without Haley being briefed, and top economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested Haley was confused. "Countries may not like what we do but they respect what we do...nations get that the President means business", she said. A recent survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center showed public opinion toward the United States has plummeted in many countries since Trump took office.

She recently said she supported Mr Trump's administration but admitted they still had their differences. She has repeatedly defended Israel's government from criticism, and criticized the Palestinians many times.

She shared her own tribute on Twitter, writing: 'Ambassador Haley has served America with dignity + distinction.

"She has done an incredible job". That included a majority, 55%, of Democrats. Marco Rubio, who wanted to push the party toward a more multicultural future.

The daughter of immigrants from India, Mrs Haley was a frequent critic of Mr Trump during his election campaign. In recent days, she had spoken out strongly in favour of Christine Blasey Ford after the university professor made sexual misconduct charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying, "It turns my stomach".
