Haley was formerly the governor of SC. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.). At the White House, both Haley and the president praised her as a potent force behind the scenes.
Trump said he was considering many candidates for Haley's job and that a successor would be named in two to three weeks. She said she would be supporting Trump.
Trump said Haley "has been very special to me" and "is a fantastic person" who has done exemplary work.
"The people that know, know Ivanka would be dynamite. So how do you turn that down?"
It has been an enormous honor to serve our country in your Administration. Trump tweeted that "The people of SC are embarrassed by Nikki Haley".
President Donald Trump talks to Nikki Haley at the United Nations General Assembly.
Many describe Haley as a fierce presence on the Security Council. For that too, I will always be grateful.
Haley has been viewed as a steadying presence within the turbulent administration, one of several establishment Republican appointments that helped deliver Trump's message around the globe. "Countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do".
"We've done a fantastic job together", he continued. But under Haley's tenure at the United Nations, the USA has faced strong opposition from Russian Federation when it comes to addressing the seven-year-old war in Syria, and frustration from European allies over reimposing nuclear sanctions against Iran. During his address to the UNGA, world leaders laughed at Trump as he claimed his administration had accomplished more than any other in USA history. "I'm proud of their courage".
As a strong supporter of term limits, I have long believed that rotation in office benefits the public. That alliance, in addition to her Goldman credentials and her time working for Bush, led her to being viewed skeptically by some in Trump's base and by nationalist forces in the White House that had been led by former chief strategist Steve Bannon.
Accordingly, I am resigning my position.
According to CREW, Haley claimed she and Gibbs had been friends for five years, during her tenure as the state's governor.
