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

Financial expert professor Amir Yaron

President Donald Trump says UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is leaving the administration "at the end of the year".

Mr Trump said Mrs Haley had told him six months ago she wanted to take some time off.

President Trump said he has a "big announcement" to make with his "friend" Nikki Haley at the White House today.

Haley's first book, released in 2012 when she was governor of SC, was part of her launch as a national figure within the Republican party, and led to talk that year she might join the GOP ticket with Mitt Romney.

A former governor of SC who is the daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley is a rising star in the Republican Party and is often mentioned as a possible candidate for the 2020 presidential elections.

Congressional and Trump administration officials told the AP that Haley plans to resign. "There certainly were great areas of contention between the United States and the U.N. But she played a very important and constructive role".

Haley said that while other countries may not like what American now stood for, she said the worldwide community respected it nonetheless. The president said that together, they had "solved a lot of problems". We passed the toughest sanctions against any country in a generation, pressuring North Korea toward denuclearization. She praised Trump for moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. We reformed United Nations operations and saved over $1.3 billion. Those conditions included serving in your Cabinet and on the National Security Council and being free to speak my mind on the issues of the day. "It's something that we don't stand for in America". I am proud of our record.

OnePlus 6T commercial availability to start end of October?
There are rumours that the OnePlus 6T will sport a 6.4-inch Optic AMOLED screen with Full HD+ resolution and 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Earlier, it was rumoured the phone would make its debut in India on October 17, but everything turned out to be false.

She's helped rein in Iranian aggression, moved progress on a denuclearized North Korea, assured Israel we have her back, and overall just gained the USA more respect on the worldwide stage.

"I am deeply concerned about the leadership vacuum she leaves and the national security impact of her departure at this time of continued disarray", Menendez said in a statement. The timing of the departure seems abrupt and shocked some of the administration's senior foreign-policy officials.

Haley told the president that her resignation would be effective in January 2019 to "give you time to select a replacement and to give the Senate time to consider your selection".

"She has a very bright future and will be a key player wherever she goes."

Then there's Richard Grenell, the current ambassador to Germany. From 2001 to 2008 under then-President George W. Bush, Grinnell was director of communications and public diplomacy, making him the longest serving US spokesman at the worldwide agency ever.

Haley is the latest in a long line of high-profile departures from the administration, such as former secretary of state Rex Tillerson, who was sacked in March, and Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist, who left in August 2017. He filled the position as a recess appointee in 2005 and 2006.

The daughter of immigrants from India, Haley favored free markets and global trade and earned worldwide attention for speaking out against the Confederate battle flag in the aftermath of the 2015 massacre at a black church in Charleston, South Carolina.
