REPORT: Nikki Haley Resigns as US Ambassador to United Nations

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.09.18

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley stepped down from her position Tuesday morning, with Axios reporting President Trump has officially accepted her letter of resignation.

According to Axios, “President Trump has accepted Nikki Haley’s resignation as UN Ambassador, according to two sources briefed on their conversation. The timing of her departure is still unclear.”

Haley -the former Governor of South Carolina- was instrumental in advancing President Trump’s agenda at the United Nations; emphasizing North Korea, Iranian sanctions, the US withdrawal from the Human Rights Council, and more.

“Like my colleagues in the Cabinet and on the National Security Council, I have very open access to the president. He does not shut out his advisers, and he does not demand that everyone agree with him. I can talk to him most any time, and I frequently do,” said Haley just months ago.

“President Trump‘s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, has resigned, leaving the White House with one less moderate Republican voice on his cabinet’s foreign policy team,” writes the New York Times.

BUSTED! Nikki Haley SLAMS the NY Times Over Phony Hit Piece About $50k Curtains

US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley slammed the New York Times over a recent article that falsely implied the diplomat had purchased $50,000 curtains for her New York residence; saying the newspaper “knew the facts” in advance but published anyway.

Haley was speaking with Fox News when she was asked to comment on the misleading article just days after the Times was forced to issue a major correction and alter the phony headline.

“I hadn’t even taken the job when these curtains were picked out. And so, the idea that this came out, we told the reporters that these were the facts. They knew the facts and they released the story anyway,” said Haley.

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu called on his Congressional colleagues to launch an investigation into Nikki Haley and the State Department’s budget this week; saying “this is not okay” after citing a debunked New York Times headline surrounding the Ambassador.

“This is not okay. As a Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I call on @HouseForeign Chairman @RepEdRoyce to hold an oversight hearing on @StateDept spending on @nikkihaley and her deputy,” tweeted the Congressman Thursday night.

Lieu fails to mention the article -while suggesting Haley purchased $52,000 curtains for her New York residence- admits six paragraphs later that the window-dressings were approved in 2016 by the Obama administration.
