Nikki Haley Resigns
In a stunning surprise announcement, Nikki Haley has resigned as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations. This came to a surprise to many within the White House. There is no official word as to why she is stepping down from her post.
Nikki Haley has been serving as the UN Ambassador for the United Nations since Trump has been in office. She was confirmed by the Senate in a rare bi-partisan vote of 96-4.
Haley has been on the front lines of calling out the UN for their Anti-Israel bias. She has also famously pulled the United states out of the UN Human Rights Council stating that the council is a “Cesspool of Political Bias.”
In a press conference in the Oval Office, President Trump and Ambassador Haley gave no indications to the reason for her abrupt resignation. When asked about a replacement, President Trump signaled that he will make a decision in the next 2-3 weeks. The President praised her efforts at the United Nations and even invited her back to his administrations should she choose in a different capacity.
