'Now We're Respected': Haley Stepping Down As U.S. Ambassador To UN

Congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters and some key US allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House. 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". She said there were no "personal" issues with her leaving her post and added that she is "not running in 2020".

Just four senators voted against UN Ambassador Nikki Haley when she was confirmed four years ago, and now the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee says he's "deeply concerned about the leadership vacuum she leaves and the national security impact of her departure at this time of continued disarray for this administration".

CNN's Kaitlan Collins also helped refresh our memories of the most serious public tension we've seen between Trump and Haley.

In April, Mrs Haley clashed with the White House when a Trump aide suggested she had prematurely announced a round of sanctions against Russian Federation.

Trump was asked why the announcement was made now since Haley is staying until the end of the year.

She backed Trump's efforts to cut off funds for the United Nations organization that aids Palestinians and joined in his attacks on Iran. The meeting will be covered by a White House pool reporter. Haley enjoys strong support among Republicans and has always been rumored to harbor future presidential ambitions.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he has a "big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30 a.m". "I pick up the phone and call him or meet with him in person", she said when there was speculation she may have been the author of the NYT op-ed that scalded Trump. Trump is on his second national security adviser as well as his second secretary of state, for example.

Mr Trump spoke as he and Ms Haley met in the Oval Office, shortly after word came of her plans to resign. He insisted later that the delegates were laughing with him, not at him.

In her brief White House press conference with President Trump, Haley said it was her "honor" to have defended America.

"With all due respect, I don't get confused", Haley said.

Haley did come under some criticism early in her tenure, however, for blocking former Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayad from being appointed to the position of the UN's special envoy for Libya.

Haley is a former SC governor who is speculated to have aspirations for higher office. "The US is strong in a way it should make all Americans proud", Haley said. She took tough positions on Iran and North Korea, while staunchly defending Israel.

The daughter of immigrants from India, Mrs Haley was a frequent critic of Mr Trump during his election campaign. Nikki Haley submits resignation.

Before she was named by Mr Trump to her United Nations post, Mr Haley was governor of SC, the first woman to hold the post. She was re-elected on November 4, 2014.
