UN Ambassador Nikki Haley resigns

(ABC News) – President Donald Trump announced that Nikki Haley has resigned as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and will be leaving her post at the end of the year.

During an ongoing meeting in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Trump said that while he is sorry to see Haley go, she had told him in advance that she wanted to take a break. Haley also reportedly told her staff that she intends to resign, according to one State Department source.

Haley was spotted by reporters in the West Wing this morning and when asked about reports of her resignation, she declined to comment.

Haley’s departure brings her career with the Trump administration on the world stage full circle. In the Republican response to the 2016 State of the Union address, she urged members of her party to resist following the “angriest voices,” which was seen as a subtle jab at Trump, even though she didn’t refer to him by name.

However, by the time of her last high-profile appearance at the United Nations General Assembly in September, when she appeared alongside President Donald Trump, she had earned a reputation among world leaders as a someone who would promote American foreign policy but also serve as a moderating voice in the room.

Haley has been the UN ambassador since January 2017. Prior to that, she served as the Governor of South Carolina.
