A 'Family Favorite' Emerges As Possible Replacement For Nikki Haley, Report Says

  • Report Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

She was re-elected in 2014 and remained in the position until taking up the United Nations role.

"And she told me probably six months ago - she said, 'You know, maybe at the end of the year - at the end of a two-year period but the end of the year, I want to take a little time off, I want to take a little break, '" he said.

Haley, 46, is the daughter of Indian immigrants and a mother of two. He said he hoped she would come back to the administration in another capacity, adding,"You can have your pick".

Despite Trump's calm words, her sudden announcement rattled a number in the White House, who openly speculated that the timing was meant to preserve the ambassador's own political future, according to the official and another White House official.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised the outgoing USA ambassador to the United Nations after she resigned on Tuesday, following a tenure in which she asserted Washington's support for Israel. An April Quinnipiac University poll found 63% of voters approved of her job performance, compared with 17% who disapproved.

"As a strong supporter of term limits, I have long believed that rotation in office benefits the public", she said in her resignation letter to Trump, which was dated October 3. The two had worked together at the United States mission to the UN during the George W. Bush administration.


Ms Haley, a former governor of SC, had been an early and frequent critic of Mr Trump, so when he named her the envoy to the world body weeks after his election in November 2016, the appointment was seen as an olive branch. Donald Trump lavished her with what for him is high praise, by saying she'd brought more glamour to the role. Trump unceremoniously announced his firing of former secretary of state Rex Tillerson in March in a tweet.

Dina Powell served in the first year of the Trump administration as the Deputy National Security Adviser.

Pompeo has led policy on talks with North Korea, while Bolton has taken the lead on trying to implement Trump's hard line against Iran.

Haley has emerged over the past year as one of the most popular officials in the Trump administration, particulary among supporters of Israel.

Haley said it is an honor of lifetime to serve the country she loves so much. At the White House, both Haley and the president praised her as a potent force behind the scenes. Prior to becoming governor, she represented Lexington County in the South Carolina House of Representatives from 2005 to 2011. "And I do think that sometimes it's good to rotate in other people who can put that same energy and power into it", Haley said. "And Ivanka has been just a great friend", Haley said.
