United States ambassador to UN Nikki Haley resigns

Report Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

When asked Tuesday whether the White House had been talking to Powell, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: "We have no announcements at this time".

Trump spoke to reporters at the White House before departing for an event in Iowa, hours after announcing that current U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley would step down at the end of the year.

"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". Donald Trump lavished her with what for him is high praise, by saying she'd brought more glamour to the role.

- Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, has resigned, reports FOX News. A recent survey by the nonpartisan Pew Research Center showed public opinion toward the United States has plummeted in many countries since Trump took office. "Most surprising thing to me is that she has no immediate plans or job to announce", says one such person.

Responding to media speculation, she insisted that she was not planning to run for president against Trump in 2020, when she might be seen as a more moderate Republican alternative.

"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. "We appreciate the strong alliance with America and Ambassador Haley's steadfast support for the truth at the U.N.", Israel's U.N. ambassador Danny Danon told CBS News.

Haley's departure marked one of the rare examples of a senior Trump administration official making a graceful exit. She took tough positions on Iran and North Korea, while staunchly defending Israel. In the role she represented Trump's often unpopular agenda at the UN, advocating a hardline stance on Iran, justifying United States cuts to foreign aid and leading the U.S. withdrawal from the UN Human Rights Council.

"You have been very special to me", Mr Trump said, addressing the outgoing ambassador who will finish her term by the end of the year. All three men are CEOs of private companies based in SC. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote on Twitter. Ryan called her a "clear, consistent and powerful voice for America's interests".

Haley has been the face of Trump's "America First" policy at the United Nations, steering the U.S. withdrawal from several UN programs and ardently defending his hard-line policies against Iran and North Korea over their nuclear programs.
