Nikki Haley Resigns as Ambassador to United Nations

Nikki Haley Resigns as Ambassador to United Nations”

"Maybe a different capacity, you can have your pick".

He called Haley a "very special" person, adding that she informed him six months ago she might want to take some time off. Trump said together they had "solved a lot of problems". He said he'll announce a replacement for Haley within the next two to three weeks.

In her resignation letter, obtained by The Washington Post, Haley said she is prepared to serve until January 2019, at which point she will become a private citizen, and "surely" will not run for any political office in 2020.

But her tough stance for America, in the face of an oft-concerted, ugly anti-American U.N. force, will be sorely missed.

"It was a blessing to go into the United Nations with body armor every day and defend America", she said.

"I think you have to be selfless enough to know when you step aside and allow someone else do the job".

"I don't agree with the president on everything".

"Look at what has happened in two years with the United States on foreign policy". "Countries may not like what we do but they respect what we do...nations get that the President means business", she said.

During Trump's presidential campaign, she sharply criticised his approach and warned what it might mean for U.S. diplomacy - even suggesting that his tendency to lash out at critics could cause a world war. She spoke out against racism and on issues of gender. When there is disagreement, there is a right way and a wrong way to address it.

"She's made it a very glamorous position", Mr Trump said.

And in December 2017, Haley said that women who had accused Trump of sexual misconduct "should be heard", a surprising break from the administration's long-standing assertion that the accusations were false and that voters rightly dismissed them when they elected Trump.

"So Nikki, I just wanted to tell you we'll miss you", he said. The retort quickly earned her an apology.

Haley, who called herself a "lucky girl", said she was leaving because she needed to take time out after an intense six years as governor of SC - which included a hurricane, a major flood and mass shootings - directly followed by two years at the United Nations. Marco Rubio in her state's all-important 2016 presidential primary and later backing Texas Sen.

Haley's is the latest resignation in a turbulent White House, where Trump is already on his third national security adviser and second secretary of state before even the midterm elections. After running for the SC legislature in 2004, Haley, who is married to U.S National Guard office, became only the second Indian-American government of a U.S state (after Bobby Jindal) in 2010.
