Nikki Haley Resigns As UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley resigns as US ambassador to the United Nations Report: Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

Mr Trump said that together, they had "solved a lot of problems".

Among those first to be cited by cable news commentators was Ivanka Trump, the president's 36-year-old daughter, who serves as an unpaid advisor to him in the White House.

President Donald Trump told reporters gathered in the Oval Office that Haley will leave the administration at the end of the year, and that she wants to "take a break". She also often sides even more strongly with Israel than Trump, who has pushed USA policy away from its officially neutral stance on the conflict with the Palestinians.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he would consider Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s Dina Powell to replace his departing ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

Haley said during her meeting with Trump that her job was to defend America on the world stage.

The former SC governor, who is viewed by some in her party as a future presidential candidate, firmly denied she planned a challenge to Trump's reelection. She told Trump around six months ago that she was thinking of quitting by the end this year "to take a little time off", he said.

Trump, along with Haley, made the announcement at the White House on October 9.

"Women who accuse anyone should be heard", Haley said last December after accusations against three members of Congress.

"I will support the president", Haley said.

Haley, 46, was appointed to the U.N. post in November 2016 and last month co-ordinated Trump's second trip to the United Nations, including his first time chairing the Security Council.

Watch her remarks above. Trump unceremoniously announced his firing of former secretary of state Rex Tillerson in March in a tweet. She initially opposed Donald Trump in the 2016 election cycle (and he trashed her in trademark tweets) before she fell in line after his victory and he picked her to be the U.S Ambassador to the United Nations, against the first person of Indian-origin to occupy a post that is part of the 15-member Presidential cabinet.

Grenell spent eight years serving as a US spokesman and political appointee to the United Nations under the George W. Bush administration - making him the longest-serving U.N. appointee in history.

"No I'm not running", she said emphatically.

Haley has emerged over the past year as one of the most popular officials in the Trump administration, particulary among supporters of Israel.

"I'm a lucky girl", she said at one point. "She got to know China, Russia, India".
