Nikki Haley 'quits' as USA ambassador to United Nations

BREAKING UN Ambassador Nikki Haley resigns

Haley has promoted a hawkish line on Iran and justified USA reductions in foreign-assistance funds.

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

Haley, who is not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector.

Trump did said Haley would help him make the final pick for her replacement. "But I will tell you that I think it's time".

There has been speculation that Haley, the former governor of SC, will return to government or politics at some point.

"I will support the president", Haley said.

At one point she suggested that Mr Trump's rhetoric could trigger a world war.

She backed Trump's efforts to cut off funds for the United Nations organization that aids Palestinians and joined in his attacks on Iran. The aide, Jon Lerner, who was planning to split his time between working for Haley and Pence, withdrew his name from consideration after backlash from within the White House. Haley and Trump tangled before he won the 2016 presidential race.

Mrs Haley's Twitter bio had already removed all reference to her role as United Nations ambassador even before her departure was confirmed.

Then just this February, when Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat called for Haley to "shut up", Haley said: "I will decline the advice I was recently given by ..." The official noted that their conversation coincided with the appointment of Mike Pompeo as secretary of state and John Bolton as national security adviser.

Scott warns Floridians of hurricane 'devastation,' storm surge
It was moving to the north at 12 mph with maximum sustained winds of 100 mph, that's up from 100 mph from the previous advisory. A storm surge up to 12 feet is possible along portions of Florida's Gulf Coast from Steinhatchee to Apalachicola Bay.

Unlike some officials, Ms. Haley didn't present herself as someone who was reining in Mr. Trump like a chaperone.

But her tough stance for America, in the face of an oft-concerted, ugly anti-American U.N. force, will be sorely missed. He insisted later that the delegates were laughing with him, not at him.

Haley penned an op-ed in late September denying she wrote an anonymous New York Times opinion piece that excoriated Trump.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the two would meet in the Oval Office with media present.

"I don't get confused", Haley said in a sharply-worded rejoinder to the West Wing.

Haley has been the face of Trump's "America First" policy at the United Nations, steering the US withdrawal from several U.N. programs and ardently defending his hard-line policies against Iran and North Korea over their nuclear programs. After running for the SC legislature in 2004, Haley, who is married to U.S National Guard office, became only the second Indian-American government of a U.S state (after Bobby Jindal) in 2010.

"It's gotten so disgusting, really", Haley said in an appearance on Fox & Friends. She also gained a reputation as a racial conciliator after leading the campaign to take down the Confederate flag at the South Carolina State House in 2015. We spoke out resolutely against dictatorships in Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, and yes, Russia.

Powell served in the Trump White House for nearly a year before leaving her job as deputy national security adviser to return to Goldman Sachs in January 2018.

Haley has also applauded women who come forward to denounce sexual abuse or misconduct by men and said they should be heard, even if they are accusing Trump. Nikki Haley submits resignation.

Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) was replacing Trump's public enemy, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Haley, a former governor of SC, would run for his Senate seat, some people speculated. She was re-elected in 2014.
