Nikki Haley Resigns as US Ambassador to the United Nations

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks during a press conference at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem

Haley, the former governor of SC, has been a fierce advocate for Trump's policies at the U.N. She said Tuesday that in the last two years, the US had become respected on the world stage, if not necessarily liked.

While her reasons were not entirely clear, Haley had said she had no 2020 presidential ambitions and will campaign for Trump.

Mrs Haley's Twitter bio has already removed all references to her role as United Nations ambassador.

"The United States does not now recognise a Palestinian state or support the signal this appointment would send within the United Nations", she said in a statement at the time. I want to be able to speak my mind.' He said, 'That is why I asked you to do this.' In all honesty, I didn't think they were going to take me up on everything I asked for. "Mr. Trump said "many people" were interested in succeeding Ms. Haley and a replacement will be named in two or three weeks or maybe sooner".

She said: 'No, I am not running for 2020.

She was frustrated to be left out of some key debates earlier this year, administration officials said, and was not seen as part of Trump's inner circle.

Trump praised her as having done an incredible job and said he hoped she could come back to the administration in another capacity.

President Trump said he has a "big announcement" to make with his "friend" Nikki Haley at the White House today.

She thanked Trump for giving her the "honor of a lifetime" to "serve a country I love so very much".

The announcement was news to many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters, and some key USA allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House.

Rare White tiger kills Japan zookeeper in attack
A zookeeper died after a white tiger mauled him Monday afternoon at a zoological park in Kagoshima, rescue workers said. White tigers, a sub-species of its orange Bengal tiger cousins, are extremely rare in the animal kingdom.

But the White House did not provide an immediate explanation for her departure. At the beginning, North Korea was a massive problem, and now we're moving along.

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.

"Now, the United States is respected", she said. If she resigned in principle over some foreign policy decision (or if she was the secret author of the NYT "Anonymous" op-ed last month), Trump wouldn't be giving her a send-off like this.

She has been more outspoken in calling out Russian aggression than Trump, for example.

Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, Axios news site reported. "It's not diplomatic, and they find it amusing".

She became known for being a hawk on Iran and its regional aggression, a strong advocate of Israel and, working together with Secretary General António Guterres, a force for cost-cutting. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak on the record ahead of Trump's announcement.

Haley was a strong pro-Israel voice at the United Nations, where the Jewish state has been increasingly isolated in recent years.

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is resigning, The Associated Press has learned. All three men are CEOs of private companies based in SC.

The group said the flights were between New York, Washington and three cities in SC. The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed her to the post in January 2017, by a vote of 96-4. Republican enthusiasm is up, and a poll late Monday even suggested that independents viewed Democrats' actions surrounding Kavanaugh more dimly than Republicans'.
