REPORT: Nikki Haley Resigns as US Ambassador to United Nations
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.

“We are going to fight for Venezuela and we are going to continue doing it until Maduro is gone!” yelled Haley.
“We need your voices to be loud and I will tell you, the US voice is going to be loud,” she added. “What we saw is what no one should live … while Maduro is eating in nice restaurants.”
Haley’s comments come days after Maduro was seen dining on $100 steaks and smoking lavish cigars during a recent trip to Asia to secure aid for his starving citizens.
