Nikki Haley, Pro-Israel Voice At UN, Resigns Abruptly

Like President Trump, she has an eye for a television moment, and after the Assad regime launched a chemical weapons strike in April 2017, she brandished pictures of dead children in the Security Council.

Trump said he will name a replacement for Haley in the next two or three weeks.

President Donald Trump told reporters gathered in the Oval Office that Haley will leave the administration at the end of the year, and that she wants to "take a break".

"I've heard Ivanka. I've heard how good would Ivanka be", Trump told reporters. That alliance, in addition to her Goldman credentials and her time working for Bush, led her to being viewed skeptically by some in Trump's base and by nationalist forces in the White House that had been led by former chief strategist Steve Bannon. She also listed her state retirement account as an asset.

"We are a better country because they are in this administration", Haley enthused of Ivanka and Jared Kushner.

Haley is 46 years old and says she has no immediate plans.

Nikki Haley has resigned as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations in a surprising move that will stir speculation about the popular Republican's future. Thank you very much for your support!

Haley's departure marked one of the rare examples of a senior Trump administration official making a graceful exit. She cited U.S. action on Syrian chemical weapons, trade deals, the arms embargo in South Sudan, U.N. sanctions against North Korea, the withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, and the relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted that Nikki Haley and President Trump will meet in the Oval Office on Tuesday morning at 10:30 AM.

Haley, 46, a former governor of SC, is the daughter of Indian immigrants. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote on Twitter. Ryan called her a "clear, consistent and powerful voice for America's interests". Trump offered effusive praise for his envoy to the United Nations.

"It's been eight years of intense time, and I'm a believer in term limits". There was a lot.

"I think you have to be selfless enough to know when you step aside and allow someone else do the job". "She is a fantastic person, very importantly, but she also is somebody that gets it", Trump said on Tuesday.

"We're all happy for you, in one way", Trump said.

'Hopefully you'll be coming back at some point, ' Trump said, perhaps in a different capacity.
