U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Resigns

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Is Resigning BREAKING: U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley Resigns

With Haley sitting at his side, Trump told a crowd of reporters that she will be leaving at the end of the year, explaining that her job as ambassador allowed her to get to know numerous other worldwide players and world leaders.

Talking to reporters after a meeting with Ms. Haley at the White House on Tuesday morning, Mr. Trump said she had done an "incredible job".

Trump nominated Haley to the United Nations job in November of 2016. The US President said Ms Haley added "glamour" to the position and exalted about her record on issues such as the US' standing at the United Nations, defending Israel, showing toughness on Iran, and moving the ball on North Korea. In her resignation announcement, Haley praised Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner for their efforts behind the scenes.

Haley, whose given name was Nimrata Randhawa, was elected governor in 2010 of deeply Republican South Carolina and, during the 2016 campaign, had criticized Trump over his remarks on immigrants before their political reconciliation.

Haley's influence at UN was blunted by Trump policy decisions that many other nations opposed, including recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, cutting aid to Palestinians and announcing a USA withdrawal from the U.N. HR Council.

One of the most prominent members of the Trump administration, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has resigned today.

Echoing previous statements from Trump, Haley said the United States under his presidency is now respected around the world. Ms Haley, who is speculated to hold aspirations for higher office, said at the White House: "No, I'm not running in 2020".

"It has been the honor of a lifetime", Haley said.

Haley, 46, was appointed to the U.N. post in November 2016 and last month coordinated Trump's second trip to the United Nations, including his first time chairing the Security Council.

Earlier this year, Haley, 46, told Reuters that, "Every day I feel like I put body armor on", to protect USA interests at the United Nations.

Third place went to Warner Bros.'s "Smallfoot", with earnings of $14.9 million in its second weekend. That also exceeded expectations that had the film bringing in around $30 million.

Former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub noted on Twitter Tuesday that Haley's resignation came after CREW filed its complaint. Her op-ed was a response to an anonymous op-ed published in the New York Times from someone who identified as a senior administration official.

"I will support the president", Haley said. She was re-elected in 2014.

"The United States does not now recognise a Palestinian state or support the signal this appointment would send within the United Nations", she said in a statement at the time.

There has been frequent speculation that Haley harbours her own presidential ambitions, however she has repeatedly insisted that she was focused on the job at hand, not future opportunities.
