BREAKING UN Ambassador Nikki Haley resigns

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has handed in her resignation, and will leave her post at the end of this year.

The president told reporters he had heard Ivanka's name discussed for the post, but he knew if he selected her he would be accused of nepotism.

The former SC governor was chosen by President Trump soon after his inauguration and confirmed to serve as United Nations ambassador just four-days after he took office. Thank you very much for your support! "It has been an honour of a lifetime".

Many are speculating as to the reason for Ambassador Haley's resignation as Washington's envoy to the United Nations, but there has been no official reason given to date for the dramatic move. "No, I am not running for 2020", she said. "I just don't know who I'm fighting that day", Haley told Reuters earlier this year.

In September, Haley wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post declaring she "proudly" works in the Trump administration but doesn't always agree with him. "We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems".

"Hopefully you'll be coming back at some point, right", Mr Trump said. Maybe a different capacity. She would campaign for Trump, she added.

Tensions bubbled up between Haley and Trump in April when Vice President Mike Pence hired a long-time Haley aide and Republican pollster as his national security adviser, prompting speculation that Haley and Pence were forging a political alliance, White House advisers said.

Many describe Haley as a fierce presence on the Security Council.

Her departure is the latest shake-up in the Trump administration ahead of the November midterm elections. The meeting will be covered by a White House pool reporter.

"Now, the United States is respected", she said. "You can have your pick", Trump said.

Trump was asked why the announcement was made now since Haley is staying until the end of the year.

"It's gotten so disgusting, really", Haley said in an appearance on Fox & Friends.

Republican lawmakers swiftly praised Mrs Haley after the news broke.

Speaker Paul Ryan took to twitter, saying he was "saddened" to see Haley leaving the administration.

Powell, who worked for a decade at Goldman before joining the Trump administration, would have to be confirmed by the Senate if Trump were to nominate her. Haley sailed through her confirmation hearing with lawmakers approving her nomination by a vote of 96-4.
