The Latest: Trump praises Haley, says she’ll make money’

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley (all times local):

1:20 p.m.

President Donald Trump is praising outgoing U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley, saying her departure announcement “was very elegantly done.”

Trump tells reporters as he receives a briefing on Hurricane Michael that he hopes Haley, who announced abruptly Tuesday that she would be resigning at the end of the year, returns to his administration in some capacity at some point.

In the meantime, he says, she’s “going to make a lot of money.”

Trump says former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell is among those in the running to replace Haley.

He told reporters Tuesday he was down to a five-person shortlist, but would not disclose any names beyond Powell’s.

He said Wednesday that some of the others on his list currently work for the administration.

President Donald Trump says he will decide in two to three weeks, if not sooner, who will be America’s next ambassador to the United Nations.

The current ambassador, Nikki Haley, announced Tuesday that she is stepping down at year’s end. She hinted in her resignation letter that she is headed to the private sector after two years at the U.N. and, before that, six years as South Carolina’s governor.

Among those Trump says he is considering is former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell. The Goldman Sachs executive and former Bush administration official is a close ally of Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. Both are senior White House aides.

White House officials had sought to put a hold on Trump’s record-setting turnover before the Nov. 6 elections.
