U.S. Ambassador to United Nations Nikki Haley Resigns

U.S. Ambassador to United Nations Nikki Haley Resigns

The move removes yet another moderate Republican voice from the Trump Cabinet, and is likely to stoke Democratic concerns that he will replace her with a conservative hardliner more in lockstep with his "America first" philosophy.

Sitting beside Trump in the Oval Office, Haley said her 18-month stint at the United Nations had been "an honor of a lifetime" and said she would stay on until the end of the year.

She recently said she supported Mr Trump's administration but admitted they still had their differences.

United States President Donald Trump announced the news Tuesday as he accepted her resignation. Speaking alongside Haley in the Oval Office, the president did not give any hints to who would replace Haley at the United Nations, but added there "are a number of people who would like to do it". "I'll never truly step aside from fighting for our country".

Speculation is mounting that Donald Trump is set to name his own daughter Ivanka as the US's new ambassador to the UN.

"Jared is such a hidden genius that no one understands".

Guardiola said on Friday playmaker Kevin De Bruyne , out since August with a knee injury, would be assessed ahead of the game. Keita's energy, technique and work-rate has meant the Guinean star has fitted straight into the Liverpool side this season .

Haley was appointed to the U.N. post in November 2016 and last month coordinated Trump's second trip to the United Nations, including his first time chairing the U.N. Security Council. "And I do think that sometimes it's good to rotate in other people who can put that same energy and power into it", Haley said. "If we are speaking honestly about conflict in the Middle East, we need to start with the chief culprit: Iran and its partner militia, Hezbollah", she said last spring. Then he'll run her as VP in 2020. She admitted as much in a September op-ed for The Washington Post, but explained that she tries to talk to Trump when she disagrees with him.

As it turned out, Haley suggested her departure was no more than a case of burnout. She told Trump around six months ago that she was thinking of quitting by the end this year "to take a little time off", he said.

"We will miss you", Trump said.

Trump tweeted he and Haley would appear together in the Oval Office Tuesday morning. She had scripted history by becoming the first-ever Indian-American to be appointed to a cabinet-level post in any U.S. administration.

Sanford's speculation could just be Sanford being Sanford - he's one of the most quixotic politicians in the USA - but it's not unreasonable to wonder what's going on. When there is disagreement, there is a right way and a wrong way to address it.

In her resignation letter, dated October 3, she made her short-term goal clear: "I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020".
