US: Nikki Haley quits as US ambassador to UN

Nikki Haley TIA

WEB DESK

Nikki Haley, the Indian-American US Ambassador to the United Nations, resigned today. According to US media reports, President Donald Trump has accepted 46-year-old Haley’s resignation as UN ambassador.

The reason behind her resignation was not clear.

Haley was the senior most Indian-American official in the Trump administration.

In the surprise announcement, she said she will leave at the end of the year.

She said that she did not know as yet what she will be doing next, but ruled out a run for president in 2020 saying she would campaign for Trump.

After eight years of public service — two as a governor and two as UN ambassador – she said that she wanted a change after the stressful tenures and that government officials should limit their terms in office so that there are new people coming in.

The former governor of South Carolina was confirmed as UN Ambassador four days after Trump was sworn-in in January 2017. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders tweeted that President Trump and Ambassador Haley will meet in the Oval Office.
