Nikki Haley: Aggressive envoy who shook up United Nations

BREAKING UN Ambassador Nikki Haley resigns

Though she has ruled out challenging Donald Trump in 2020, we have not heard the last of Nikki Haley.

She has also made a point of praising the first lady as well as Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. "I'd pick her but I'd be accused of nepotism, even though I'm not sure there is anyone more competent in the world".

U.S. President Donald Trump has accepted the resignation of Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the UN.

Sanders wrote, "President Trump and Ambassador Nikki Haley will meet in the Oval Office at 10:30am this morning".

Haley, who previously served as the governor of SC from 2010 to 2016, thanked Trump and said serving in his administration was "an honor of a lifetime".

On Tuesday, Haley listed what she said were the accomplishments of her two terms, including North Korea sanctions, support for Israel, cutting the United Nations budget by $1.3 billion, and focusing on Iran's support of terror groups in the Middle East, as the US defended its withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal.

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. "No indication. And no obvious roadmap", said the person close to Haley. "I can promise you what I'll be doing is campaigning for this [president]".

Haley was the first woman named to President Trump's Cabinet. Trump is on his second national security adviser as well as his second secretary of state, for example. However, drawing any further conclusions from that one action is a fool's errand, and I'd encourage anyone thinking that this is the beginning of a 2020 primary challenge against Trump to get their head out of the clouds.

Nikki Haley has resigned as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations in a surprising move that will stir speculation about the popular Republican's future.

In the days leading up to Haley's sudden and surprising resignation Tuesday, senior White House officials reached out to Powell about replacing possibly taking the role, according to three people with direct knowledge of the matter.

'Jared and I are grateful for her friendship - a true blessing in our lives!'

In the hour after word leaked on Tuesday morning that she was leaving, the Washington punditocracy had worked itself into a lather wondering if she was being fired or eased out because she was constantly challenging Trump on issues such as sanctions on Russian Federation (on which she is a hardliner) and wanted to run against him in 2020.
