Nikki Haley 'quits' as U.S. ambassador to United Nations

Nikki Haley resigns as US ambassador to the United Nations

Report: Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

She also led SC in the aftermath of the Charleston church shooting when Dylann Roof murdered nine African Americans.

'Then she'll be president, life will finally catch up to House of Cards, and then we can cancel Netflix. "It has been an honour of a lifetime".

Ms Haley indicated she did not where her next role would be, but ruled out running for the 2020 presidency.

Haley, 46, was the senior most Indian-American official in the Trump administration. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. "I pick up the phone and call him or meet with him in person", she said when there was speculation she may have been the author of the NYT op-ed that scalded Trump.

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 discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, Axios news site reported.

During Trump's presidential campaign, she sharply criticized his demeanor and warned what it might mean for US diplomacy - even suggesting that his tendency to lash out at critics could cause a world war.

Her departure is being seen as a blow for the White House just weeks before the United States midterm election. He also said the pair had "solved a lot of problems". Hopefully, you'll be coming back at some point. Maybe in a different capacity. Thank you for representing the values common to Israel and the United States.

Before she was named by Mr Trump to her United Nations post, Mr Haley was governor of SC, the first woman to hold the post.

The United Nations General Assembly concluded late last month. Congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters and some key USA allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House. But Trump repeatedly has brushed off his White House's and administration's historically high turnover rate. I think Ivanka would be incredible.

In turn, Trump credited Haley with bringing glamour to the U.N. Ambassador's post while lavishly praising her for doing a "fantastic job". "But that's OK. But we are looking at numerous people".
