Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

Nikki Haley resigns as United States Ambassador to the United Nations

Haley, who has been one of Trump's most trusted advisers, would not confirm the report to Reuters when asked about it during a visit to the White House on Tuesday.

"I am such a lucky girl to have been able to lead the state that raised me, and to serve a country I love so very much".

Trump, she said, is "showing the rest of the world we will put our embassy where we want to put our embassy".

During an Oval Office meeting, Haley beat back the idea that she might be preparing a 2020 primary run against Trump, saying that she will campaign with the president.

First, she told Trump she wanted to be a member of the Cabinet and the National Security Council, privileges enjoyed by her predecessors in the Obama administration. Rumor has it that the first daughter is being considered to replace Nikki Haley, and Twitter's not feeling it.

Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said Haley's leaving is "yet another sign of the Trump administration's chaotic foreign policy and setback from promoting American values and priorities".

Sen. Cory Gardner (R-Colo.), who sits on the Foreign Relations Committee and is behind strong sanctions legislation against North Korea, called Haley "a powerful voice" at the United Nations and said she has been an "incredible partner" implementing a "maximum pressure doctrine on North Korea".

US President Donald Trump and Haley held a quickly arranged media availability on Tuesday morning (Wednesday NZT) in the White House, shortly after Axios Jonathan Swan of Axios broke the news of her impending exit. Republican Congressman Mark Sanford of SC put it bluntly on MSNBC, saying, "Something doesn't smell right, something's weird".

Haley fought against what she called anti-Israel bias at the United Nations, and sometimes seemed to be channeling Trump's abrasive style of diplomacy.

Former S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley will leave her post at the United Nations with a burnished national reputation.

She has been more outspoken in calling out Russian aggression than Trump, for example.

Her UN counterparts described her as charming and yet very tough. She also reportedly was involved with overseeing a $200 billion arms deal between the USA and Saudi Arabia.

Haley, a close colleague of Powell's, was also known to be friendly with Ivanka Trump and Kushner.

Haley's fast rise from a Southern state's legislature to the world stage suggests the 46-year-old may have greater political ambition.

"I don't get confused", Haley said in a sharply-worded rejoinder to the West Wing.

"I was a governor for six years, and we dealt with a hurricane, a thousand-year flood, a church shooting, a school shooting". He already has eight years of experience of working at the UN. I think Ivanka would be incredible.

She recently said she supported Mr Trump's administration but admitted they still had their differences. "But I will tell you that there is no hate in this country". "Maybe a different capacity, you can have your pick".
