Report Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

The daughter of Indian immigrants from Punjab, Haley was the first woman tapped by Trump for a top-level administration post during his transition to the White House.

Haley said her resignation was simply about needing a break after six years as SC governor and two at the United Nations, and Trump said Haley had even previewed a desire to leave as long as six months ago.

And image-obsessed President Trump did little to dampen rumors of a promotion for Ivanka after praising Haley for making the role 'a much more glamorous position'. "I'm not sure there's anybody more competent", Trump said.

The President said he is considering "numerous people" including his former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, whom he said "is under consideration".

United States President Donald Trump announced the news Tuesday as he accepted her resignation.


"We're all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose (you)", Trump said.

Haley, the former governor of SC, was a critic of Trump's during the 2016 Republican primaries and endorsed his opponent Sen.

"I proudly serve in this administration, and I enthusiastically support most of its decisions and the direction it is taking the country", Ms Haley wrote.

"Big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30 am", the president tweeted earlier.

Her departure is the latest shake-up in the Trump administration ahead of the November midterm elections.


Between the UN Ambassadorship and serving in the South Carolina Governorship and General Assembly, I have been in public office for fourteen straight years. ".I can speak for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo".

"I'm not leaving until the end of the year".

Nikki Haley, 46, ended her meeting with Donald Trump and the press pool after announcing her resignation by praising first daughter Ivanka Trump, and some are reading a double meaning into that choice.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the outgoing U.S. ambassador to the United Nations after she resigned on Tuesday, following a tenure in which she asserted Washington's support for Israel.

Senator Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called Haley's resignation "yet another sign of the Trump Administration's chaotic foreign policy". She said there were no "personal" issues with her leaving her post and added that she is "not running in 2020". "They know that if we say we're going to do something, we follow it through", she said.
