Nikki Haley Resigns, Trump Officials Shocked

Haley, 46, is the latest in a long line of high-profile departures from the administration, such as former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was sacked in March, and Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist, who left in August 2017. He said that she had done a "fantastic job" and would leave at the end of the year.

Elected as the state's first woman governor in 2010, she was a staunch opponent of Mr. Trump within the Republican Party during the 2016 presidential election. Haley told reporters she will be campaigning for the president in 2020, quashing speculation that she might chart her own political course challenging the president.

"She knows everybody on a very first name basis and they like her, except for maybe a couple, which is normal".

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is tendering her resignation, two sources tell the AP, marking the latest shake-up in the turbulent Trump administration just weeks before the midterm election.

"You have been very special to me", she told Ms. Haley who was sitting to his right.

Last month Haley wrote an op-ed article in The Washington Post discussing her policy disagreements but also her pride in working for Trump. How about (1) she is not qualified and (2) we are or should aspire to be a democracy, and not a monarchy or a House of Cards-like tv show? "Now if we say we're going to do something, we follow through".

She was also instrumental in pressuring China to support a tough sanctions regime against North Korea. She saw herself as a fighter.

Haley has pressed for a hawkish line on Iran, justified U.S. cuts to foreign assistance and earlier this year led the United States in bolting from the UN Human Rights Council, accusing it of bias against Washington and Israel.

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