Nikki Haley Resigns As UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley Resigns As UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, is to leave her post at the end of the year.

Mr Trump said that together, they had "solved a lot of problems". The "news shocked a number of senior foreign policy officials in the Trump administration", Swan reported. She's made it a more glamorous position.

Yet it's often said that the UN's biggest peacekeeping mission is directed against the Trump White House, and Mrs Haley was seen as a valuable ally.

The president left open the possibility of Haley returning to the administration, saying she would be welcome in any capacity. Trump added that Haley told him she wanted a break around six months ago.

Haley's debts include a string of liabilities incurred over her years in the Trump administration and S.C. government.

U.S. Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Nikki Haley meets Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his office in Jerusalem, June 7, 2017. Her aggressive and repeated warnings about compiling a list of countries that didn't back the United States irritated even close allies. "Countries may not like what we do but they respect what we do...nations get that the President means business", she said. I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020.




The news blindsided many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters and some key USA allies. She also gained a reputation as a racial conciliator after leading the campaign to take down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State House in 2015. "It has been the honor of a lifetime", she said in the Oval Office, thanking Trump. She's repeatedly insisted that she is focused on the job at hand, not future opportunities. That included a majority, 55%, of Democrats.

"No, I'm not running in 2020" for president, she joked. But Trump repeatedly has brushed off his White House's and administration's historically high turnover rate. She was also spotted in a photograph with Haley, visiting her in SC this past weekend. Within hours, however, speculation turned to who might succeed her at the UN.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard", Haley said last December after accusations against three members of Congress.

Retiring Speaker of the House Paul Ryan said: "She challenged friend and foe to be better".
