Nikki Haley 'quits' as USA ambassador to United Nations

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks during a press conference at the Prime Minister's Office in Jerusalem

Trump wrote on Twitter that there would be a "Big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office" on Tuesday morning. "We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems", Trump said. He said he'll announce a replacement for Haley within the next two to three weeks.

She also complimented members of Trump's team, including senior advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

Haley had disclosed the flights on her government form for 2017.

Haley, meanwhile, also said that she will not be running in the 2020 elections and that she will campaign for Trump.

At the Oval Office, the president said Ms. Haley had told him six months ago she would leave at the end of the year. "But I will tell you that I think it's time". I mean, I wonder why, but it is.

Is he appointing her to another position somewhere? Perhaps most importantly, she wanted the latitude to be herself, to say what she wanted. When a National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow suggested in April that Haley had suffered "momentary confusion" over the Trump Administration's approach to sanctions against Russian entities who were assisting Syria's chemical weapons program, she responded with a clear message to the contrary.

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

"I have given everything I've got these last eight years", she said, referring to her six years as SC governor as well as her time at the United Nations.

And when a White House aide suggested in April this year that "confusion" had led her to mistakenly announce fresh sanctions on Russian Federation, she quickly fired back. At this time, there's no word on who could replace Haley as United Nations ambassador, but her successor should be named within two to three weeks, according to the president.

"Thank you to [Nikki Haley] for being the strong voice [and] force America needed at the U.N. She will be missed in the administration, but I'm grateful for her service [and] dedication to our country", Sen. "But I will tell you that there is no hate in this country".

Haley said that while other countries may not like what American now stood for, she said the global community respected it nonetheless.

"Anyone that goes and tries to spew hate on someone because of their color or religion or their place in life - that's terribly wrong", she continued.

"America was blessed to have her representing us". Sanford, a fellow former SC governor who has been allies with Haley in the past but is now an administration critic, said of the story: "Something doesn't smell right".
