Nikki Haley Resigns As Donald Trump's UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley resigns as United States Ambassador to the United Nations

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. The watchdog group says that, although Haley reported having accepted flights from the businessmen, she grossly underestimated the value of the flights she took. He also said the pair had "solved a lot of problems".

"All of those things have made a huge difference in the U.S. standing, but I can tell you that the USA is strong again". Maybe a different capacity. "You can have your pick", he said.

He said he would be naming her replacement in the next two to three weeks and that "very good people" were interested in taking up her role. During Haley's tenure, the USA withdrew from the Paris climate accord, the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Council, the Iran nuclear deal, and the U.N. Educational and Cultural agency (UNESCO).

Mrs Haley was a strident critic of Russian Federation and Syria at the United Nations, and also fiercely critical of what she claimed was the global body's anti-Israel bias. Marco Rubio in her state's all-important 2016 presidential primary and later backing Texas Sen.

Haley has two children to put through college and the potential to make much more money in the business world.

She was the first governor in the USA of Asian descent, her parents having been born in India. She was re-elected in 2014. As governor, she developed a national reputation as a racial conciliator who led the charge to bring down the Confederate flag at the Statehouse and helped guide the state through one of its darkest moments, the massacre at a black church.

United Nations report warns of possible climate disaster by 2040
There's only twelve years left to avert climate change disaster, and Scott Morrison's still throwing around words like "nonsense". The report calls for huge changes in land, energy, industry, buildings, transportation and cities.

Speculation is mounting that Donald Trump is set to name his own daughter Ivanka as the US's new ambassador to the UN. However, the previously mentioned scandals may serve as a bit of a roadblock in her effectiveness as a campaigner. "She'd been a very successful governor of SC for eight years and this has possibly been more intense and unsafe, and a lot of things".

But she said on Tuesday she would not be running in 2020 and would campaign for Trump.

Haley will leave by the end of the year, Trump told reporters.

"But I don't agree with the president on everything".

What will she do next?
