Nikki Haley To Resign As UN Ambassador At End Of Year

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

Trump said he had accepted Haley's resignation and would name her successor within two or three weeks. Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, these sources said.

Haley's impending departure came as a shock to Washington, amid crucial times for foreign policy, and one month ahead of November's midterms. She said she would be supporting Trump.

Haley, the former governor of SC, was confirmed as U.N. Ambassador nearly immediately after Trump's inauguration.

In December 2017, she said that the women who had accused Mr Trump of sexual assault "should be heard".

It crushed the worldwide box office as well, earning $125.2 million, led by South Korean receipts of $16.3 million. That's the best October debut in box office history beating " Gravity's " 2013 debut by almost $25 million.


Dina Powell, a former Goldman Sachs executive who served in the Bush White House and State Department, and later as Trump's Deputy National Security Advisor, was one of the first names to be uttered as the next possible United Nations ambassador. Ms Haley, who is speculated to hold aspirations for higher office, said at the White House: "No, I'm not running in 2020". Trump calls Haley a "very special" person "who gets it", adding that she told him six months ago that she might want to take some time off. Trump says that together they "solved a lot of problems".

Calling Mr Trump's adviser and son in law Jared Kushner a "hidden genius", Ms Haley said the "Middle East peace plan is so unbelievably well done".

"Look at what has happened in two years with the United States on foreign policy", Haley said in a statement provided to LifeZette.

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.

Heller said. "This means that any remaining emissions would need to be balanced by removing Carbon dioxide from the air", it says. Well, it will require rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented change across the whole of society, according to the report .


"It was a blessing to go into the United Nations every day with body armor", Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage.

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. But I don't agree with the president on everything. She was re-elected in 2014.

"I proudly serve in this administration, and I enthusiastically support most of its decisions and the direction it is taking the country".

Former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub noted on Twitter Tuesday that Haley's resignation came after CREW filed its complaint.
