UN Nikki Haley resigns, Trump accepts

View of the Bank of Israel

Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, Axios news site reported.

Susan Page, D.C. Bureau Chief for USA Today, said on MSNBC shortly after the presser, "So maybe Jared Kushner or Ivanka is going to be the new United Nations ambassador, with that big endorsement".

Yet, in the wake of her resignation, two sources familiar with Haley's relationship with Trump told CNN that she had lost clout with the President in recent months. Trump added that Haley told him she wanted a break around six months ago. "I can't say enough good things about Jared and Ivanka", Haley gushed, calling Kushner a "hidden genius in a way no one understands", and Ivanka a "good friend" who has done "a lot behind the scenes".

'I look forward to supporting the president in the next election'.

In April, Mrs Haley clashed with the White House when a Trump aide suggested she had prematurely announced a round of sanctions against Russian Federation. He added that she will stay on through the end of the year. She spoke out against racism and on issues of gender.

If this was long-planned, it was apparently the best-kept secret in Trump's White House.

One official says there was little coordination on the announcement and sources tell CNN that nearly all senior administration officials found themselves caught off guard by the announcement.

Trump said she would leave at the end of the year.

More recently, there was an awkward moment at the United Nations, when Trump's boasting of American economic strength under his leadership drew laughter at a General Assembly session. When the sanctions never materialized, White House officials said the plans had changed without Haley being briefed, and top economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested Haley was confused.

"I don't have anything set on where I'm going to go", Mrs Haley said.

Brett Kavanaugh moves towards Supreme Court confirmation after long, bitter fight
When the vote was over, hundreds of protesters massed on the Supreme Court steps, chanting, "We believe survivors". That support all but assured Republicans of the votes they needed to push the nomination across the finish line.

At the UN, Haley helped spearhead the Trump administration's efforts to combat what it alleged to be anti-American and anti-Israel actions by the global body.

She said she was stepping aside after nearly a decade on the national stage, including her tenure as SC governor.

Her warm chat with Trump has sparked speculation she is being lined up for a Senate position in the wake of next month's midterms, with pundits touting Haley as a potential future vice presidential or presidential candidate.

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 ..." "But I don't agree with the president on everything".

Born in 1972 in Bamberg, South Carolina, Nimrata "Nikki" Randhawa rose quickly in the southern state's politics, serving in its House of Representatives from 2005 to 2011 when she was elected governor.

In turn, Trump credited Haley with bringing glamour to the U.N. Ambassador's post while lavishly praising her for doing a "fantastic job".

She was reelected in 2014.

Former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub noted on Twitter Tuesday that Haley's resignation came after CREW filed its complaint.

"Today's announcement that Ambassador Haley is resigning is yet another sign of the Trump Administration's chaotic foreign policy", he said in a statement".
