Nikki Haley resigns as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations

Nikki Haley resigns as United States Ambassador to the United Nations US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley is stepping down from her post

The news blindsided many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters and some key US allies.

Haley achieved a rare feat in the Trump administration, maintaining her personal popularity despite the president's polarizing politics.

Haley made the surprise announcement this morning she would leave her post at year's end. "I think that it's just very important for government officials to understand when it's time to step aside". "I can promise you what I'll be doing is campaigning for this [president]".

Like President Trump, she has an eye for a television moment, and after the Assad regime launched a chemical weapons strike in April 2017, she brandished pictures of dead children in the Security Council.

At the Trump White House, Powell allied herself with the president's influential daughter and son-in-law.

Haley claimed the media had mischaracterized the laughter and contended it was actually a sign of respect.

Mr Trump spoke as he and Ms Haley met in the Oval Office, shortly after word came of her plans to resign. He insisted later that the delegates were laughing with him, not at him.

President Trump said she has done an incredible job and he will hate to lose her. "You can have your pick", he said, standing next to Ms Haley in the Oval Office for the official announcement.

Hurricane Michael puts 57000 Gulf Coast homes at risk
As of the 4pm CDT advisory Monday evening, Michael was a category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 80 miles per hour . A hurricane hunter plane has found that Michael continues to strengthen as it moves north over the southeastern Gulf of Mexico.


"It was a blessing to go into the United Nations every day with body armor", Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage.

United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley was facing an ethics complaint over her acceptance of private travel between SC and Washington, D.C. "No indication. And no obvious roadmap", said the person close to Haley.

She was the first governor in the USA of Asian descent, her parents having been born in India.

The reason why the "break" explanation doesn't make a whole lot of sense is that ambassadors to the United Nations need to be confirmed by congress, and that's not a simple process that you can just hop in and out of.

Trump said he would name a successor within the next two or three weeks.

The daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley alluded to Trump in denouncing "the siren call of the angriest voices" who disrespected America's immigrants.

She told him: "Thank you, Mr President". She was re-elected in 2014.

"She got to know the players, she got to know China, Russia, and India.they like her...they respect her". Lindsey Graham tweets he expects Haley will continue to be a "key player" in their party.
