Nikki Haley resigns as United Nations ambassador

This is unclear. Mr Trump said Ms Haley mentioned six months ago she might want to take some time off.

The president also said Haley has done a "fantastic job" and that she's been "very special" to him. She said it was a company plane but that Gibbs repaid the firm.

In her parting remarks, Haley heaped praise on Ivanka and Jared, and Trump later told reporters that his daughter would be "wonderful" at the job.

Trump said on Twitter that he would make a "big announcement" with "his friend Ambassador Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30am" (14:30 GMT) on Tuesday. She also listed her state retirement account as an asset.

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

Haley has been a consistent "America First" voice on the global front, calling out United Nations' powers for anti-Israel, anti-West rhetoric. "Countries may not like what we do but they respect what we do...nations get that the President means business", she said.

"She's made it a very glamorous position", Mr Trump said.

Real identity uncovered of second Russian linked to Skripal poisoning: Bellingcat
The second suspect in the attempted poisoning of a former Russian secret agent has been identified by an investigative website. Anatoliy Vladimirovich Chepiga , a special forces veteran, who went by the name to British police as "Ruslan Boshirov".

"I proudly serve in this administration, and I enthusiastically support most of its decisions and the direction it is taking the country", she wrote in an article for The Washington Post. At the White House, both Haley and the president praised her as a potent force behind the scenes.

Her departure comes less than a month after the United Nations General Assembly in New York City, which was somewhat of a rocky affair for the president.

The daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley had always been seen as a rising star in the Republican Party which has eagerly sought female and ethnic minorities to broaden the appeal beyond its traditional white demographic.

Her status as a potential candidate for national high office was boosted in 2015 when she ordered the Confederate battle flag to be pulled down at South Carolina's state capitol grounds after a white supremacist gunman shot dead nine black worshipers at a church in Charleston.

At one point she suggested that Mr Trump's rhetoric could trigger a world war. So I look forward to supporting the president in the next election'. When there is disagreement, there is a right way and a wrong way to address it.

Haley's name quickly rose to the top when it came to potential authors of the op-ed - given her well-established independence within the Administration - but she issued perhaps the strongest rebuke of the author in an op-ed of her own.
