UN Ambassador Haley resigning

  • Report Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

Ms Haley, meeting President Donald Trump, said that she wanted time off after six years as governor and almost two representing his foreign policy at the United Nations.

Eliana Johnson, White House reporter for Politico.

Without prompting from reporters, she said she had no plans to run for president "in 2020" and would campaign for Mr Trump.

Haley's name has come up as possible Republican running mate in the last two presidential elections and she could also become a USA senator if fellow South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham takes up a job in the Trump administration, as is often speculated.

Trump called Haley a "very special" person, adding that she told him six months ago that she might want to take some time off.

Haley was seen by her counterparts at the United Nations as a voice of clarity in a US administration that often gave off mixed signals on foreign policy, diplomats say. The senior official noted that their conversation coincided with the appointments of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and John Bolton as national security adviser in an earlier upending of top foreign policy officials. She said she would be supporting Trump.

The six-month timeline also coincides with a high-profile spat between Haley and the White House in April, when she drew the president's ire for previewing in a television appearance the administration's planned imposition of a new round of sanctions on Russian Federation.

"What she's done as United Nations, ambassador has not only raised her own profile, which was already high, but she also raised the profile of the job and she's left some big shoes to fill", said Rob Godfrey, a former political aide in SC. "It was blessing to go into the United Nations with body armor every day", Haley said from the Oval Office.

At the U.N., Haley helped spearhead the Trump administration's efforts to combat what it alleged to be anti-American and anti-Israel actions by the global body.

Haley also secured three successively tougher Security Council sanction resolutions against North Korea - which the administration has credited with bringing Kim Jong Un to the negotiating table - and an arms embargo against South Sudan. "The U.S.is strong again, it's strong in a way that should make all Americans very proud".

Speaking to reporters later on Tuesday aboard Air Force One, Trump said he had five people on his short list for United Nations envoy, including former White House adviser Dina Powell, a friend of Haley's.

Politico: Nikki Haley flips the script on Trump - "While several White House aides said they were shocked both by Haley's resignation, as well as the timing of the announcement - a month before November's midterm elections - two people familiar with her thinking said she did not want her departure to appear to be a response to Republican losses in the midterms, should they happen".

"I have given everything I've got these last eight years", she said.

U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell's name has also been floated for the post, but Trump suggested he'd rather keep him in his current post "because he's doing such a good job".

Trump's eldest daughter Ivanka Trump, who is a senior adviser to her father, ruled herself out of consideration in a Twitter post.

Talk in Washington is that should Trump replace Attorney-General Jeff Sessions with Graham after the Nov 6 congressional elections, South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster would be responsible for selecting a replacement to serve until the 2020 election. The debts included a personal mortgage of between $250,001 and $500,000, according to the report with the Office of Government Ethics.

"Ambassador Haley has much political life ahead of her and perhaps as vice president and beyond", said Karen Floyd, a former Republican Party chairwoman in SC. She was re-elected in 2014.

Her status as a potential candidate for national high office was boosted in 2015 when she ordered the Confederate battle flag to be pulled down at South Carolina's state capitol grounds after a white supremacist gunman shot dead nine black worshipers at a church in Charleston.
