Nikki Haley resigns as United Nations ambassador

View of the Bank of Israel

Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, Axios news site reported.

Worth noting: Haley wrote a public op-ed in September challenging the N.Y. Times' anonymous op-ed.

Before she was named by Mr Trump to her United Nations post, she was governor of SC, the first woman to hold the post.

He said that Haley could come back to the administration in +any capacity.

Haley's first book, released in 2012 when she was governor of SC, was part of her launch as a national figure within the Republican party, and led to talk that year she might join the GOP ticket with Mitt Romney.

"Thank you Mr President; it's been an honour of a lifetime", she told Trump.

Haley's influence at UN was blunted by Trump policy decisions that many other nations opposed, including recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, cutting aid to Palestinians and announcing a USA withdrawal from the U.N. HR Council.

She called the president's son-in-law and senior White House adviser, Jared Kushner, a "hidden genius", in particular praising his foreign policy work: "The Middle East peace plan is so unbelievably well done", she said. Haley and Trump tangled before he won the 2016 presidential race.

The updated Chromecast will sport an enhanced design on the outside, as well as improved WiFi and support for Bluetooth. The tested device received an Intel Core i7-8500Y processor as an impressive 16 GB of RAM as well as Android 9.

Facebook message about your account being cloned is a hoax
Facebook shut down Paper, a stand-alone iOS app that was part News Feed, part newsreader, in 2016, two years after its launch. While account cloning is a real thing, the viral copy/paste message warning about it is likely not from a cloned account.

Nearly two years into the job, Ms Haley said it was just time to let someone else step in.

Haley, 46, 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 Security Council.

"It was a blessing to go into the United Nations every day with body armor", Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage.

In her resignation letter, obtained by The Washington Post, Haley said she is prepared to serve until January 2019, at which point she will become a private citizen, and "surely" will not run for any political office in 2020. She was re-elected in 2014.

Former Office of Government Ethics Director Walter Shaub noted on Twitter Tuesday that Haley's resignation came after CREW filed its complaint.

"I will support the president", Haley said. "I just don't know who I'm fighting that day", Haley told Reuters earlier this year.

On Monday, the federal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) called for the State Department's inspector general to launch an ethics investigation into Haley, regarding seven free flights on private planes that Haley and her husband accepted from three SC businessmen in 2017.
