US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley Resigns; Trump Accepts Resignation

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has tendered her resignation and will be out of her top diplomatic post at the end of the year. President Donald Trump has accepted Haley’s resignation.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">BREAKING: Nikki Haley resigning as ambassador to United Nations <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Wisconsin State Journal (@WiStateJournal) <a href="">October 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Trump and Haley discussed her resignation during a White House visit last week.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">President <a href="">@realDonaldTrump</a> accepted <a href="">@nikkihaley</a>’s resignation as <a href="">@UN</a> ambassador, Fox News has confirmed. <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Fox News (@FoxNews) <a href="">October 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

The President praised Haley and said she has done an “incredible job” since she was confirmed by the Senate in January 2018. He also acknowledged her contributions to the progress the Trump administration has made with North Korea.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">&quot;You have done a fantastic job, and I want to thank you very much,&quot; Pres. Trump tells UN Amb. Nikki Haley after announcing her resignation in the Oval Office. <a href=""></a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; ABC News (@ABC) <a href="">October 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Trump said that “Nikki Haley has been very special to me.” He also described her as a “fantastic person” and that he hated the fact that he had “to lose her.”

Trump also shared that Haley told him about her desire to leave her post and take a break about six months ago. Even then she has given the end of the year as her “deadline” for quitting her UN post.

For her part, Haley said of her job: “It has been the honor of a lifetime.”

The former South Carolina governor also deflected speculations that she was considering challenging Trump for the Republican presidential nomination in 2020. Instead, she stressed that she’s campaigning for him in his reelection bid.

Haley has been instrumental in implementing Trump's "America First" approach to foreign policy on the world stage, including withdrawing the U.S. from the U.N. Human Rights Council.

Haley discussed in an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post last month about the policy disagreements with the President but also acknowledged how proud she was to have worked with him.

Sounds like another Deep Stater abandoning Trump because he is putting AMERICA 1st.

Haley is an abrasive, neocon witch.

I guess that she needed a break from the stress.

Her resignation comes one day after an ethics watchdog requested an investigation into her acceptance of free flights on private jets

Zidane (Ralph Retort cohost) thinks Nikki was the "anonymous insider" who did the NYT editorial. Wouldn't be surprised she's not to be trusted, pretty sure South Carolina is just glad she's not governor anymore. Her name isn't even Haley for that matter lol. All in all, not to be trusted, glad she's off the team.
