US Ambassador to UN Nikki Haley resigns

Report Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley has resigned, a person familiar with the situation said on Tuesday, and the White House said she would appear with President Donald Trump at an event later in the morning.

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

For what it's worth, "Ivanka Trump laughed when she was told of the speculation", says CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta. Haley too praised the President saying the United States was respected because of him.

"I thank ambassador Nikki Haley for her uncompromising struggle against the hypocrisy of the United Nations", he wrote in Hebrew on his official Twitter account, wishing her success in her future endeavours. Haley's is the latest resignation in a leadership team with a relatively high turnover - Trump has already lost one secretary of state and two national security advisers.

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. An April Quinnipiac University poll found 63% of voters approved of her job performance, compared with 17% who disapproved.

Trump, she said, is "showing the rest of the world we will put our embassy where we want to put our embassy". She's made it a more glamorous position.

Haley's personal finances are detailed in her public financial disclosure as the US ambassador to the United Nations.

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

Returning the favor, Haley praised Trump and his family for their support.

And yet, she outlasted many of her colleagues, carving out a role in her first year as the president's most visible foreign-policy voice.

Dina Powell, a former Goldman Sachs executive who served in the Bush White House and State Department, and later as Trump's Deputy National Security Advisor, was one of the first names to be uttered as the next possible United Nations ambassador.

Pompeo has led policy on talks with North Korea, while Bolton has taken the lead on trying to implement Trump's hard line against Iran.

Haley has been viewed as a steadying presence within the turbulent administration, one of several establishment Republican appointments that helped deliver Trump's message around the globe.

"No I'm not running", she said emphatically.

Trump's son-in-law and senior advisor Jared Kushner hinted that Powell would stay continue to be influential in the administration's efforts.

Michael Haley reported a bank balance of from $15,000 to $50,000, and between $50,000 and $100,000 in rental income from the Lexington property before it was sold. 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.
