U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Is Resigning

  • Nikki Haley and others in the U.S. delegation listen as President Donald Trump speaks at United Nations headquarters in Manhattan on Sept. 25 2018. Haley resigned her post as ambassador on Oct. 9

The daughter of immigrants from India, Mrs Haley was a frequent and early critic of Mr Trump during his election campaign whilst she served as the Republican governor of SC.

Haley, who is widely admired by Republicans and seen as a tempering figure within the Trump administration, "discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House", sources told Axios.

Haley's impending departure came as a shock to Washington, amid crucial times for foreign policy, and one month ahead of November's midterms. Haley had expressed some frustration that her voice had been diminished as the two men became the aggressive new faces of Trump's foreign policy, the official said.

"Big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30am", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Nikki Haley has announced she will be stepping down from her role as USA ambassador to the United Nations during a sit-down with President Trump.

"No, I'm not running in 2020" for president, she joked, quickly adding that she would be supporting Trump.

In April, she clashed with the White House when a Trump aide suggested she had prematurely announced a new round of sanctions against Russian Federation. Haley told reporters she will be campaigning for the president in 2020, quashing speculation that she might chart her own political course challenging the president. 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.

Haley again told the president last week that she planned on resigning, but in a rare turn of events in the nation's capital, word did not leak of her intentions before she officially submitted her resignation.

Sitting beside Trump in the Oval Office, Haley said her 18-month stint at the United Nations had been "an honor of a lifetime" and said she would stay on until the end of the year.

Earlier this year, Haley, 46, told Reuters that, "Every day I feel like I put body armor on", to protect US interests at the United Nations. Haley's resignation was a closely guarded secret. She was re-elected in 2014.

'What I'm saying is, in the long run, Nikki Haley quitting could save us 8 bucks a month'.

"I will support the president", Haley said.

Nikki Haley has been one of the most vocal and pro-active advocates for Israel in the United Nations the Jewish State has ever had.
