Nikki Haley has resigned as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, sending a jolt through the foreign policy world and disrupting President Donald Trump’s team shortly before the midterm elections.

Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, was an early critic of then-candidate Trump before joining his administration. She has been a forceful presence at the U.N., and recently oversaw the U.S. withdrawing from the U.N. Human Rights Council.

The resignation was closely held and came as a surprise to many in the field. “What?? Nikki Haley? No, I am amazed,” one veteran GOP foreign policy hand who has advised Haley said.

Haley had said in April that her relationship with Trump was “perfect.”

  1. Nikki Haley is the perfect person to be the next Vice President . Not that Mike Pence hasn’t done a good job, but it’s time to break the so called “glass ceiling “, and she is the perfect candidate. What would the feminists have to complain about then?

  2. So sorry to see Ms. Haley go. She is brilliant. Hopefully she will take another post in our government.

  3. I am sorry to hear of her resignation. I thought she had plenty of backbone and was doing a good job.

  4. So sorry to hear that Nikki Haley is resigning. She was an attribute to the Trump administration. I am, on the other hand, overjoyed that Judge Kavanaugh is now Justice Kavanaugh. After watching the Democrats try to destroy this man based on unsupported allegations, I have decided to change my voter registration to “Republican” from “Independent”. I have voted for Democrats in the past but the Democrat party has changed and not for the best. I have already sent in my ballot for the mid-terms and have voted straight Republican

  5. You Republicans know that man is guilty of everything that people were saying about him and y’all still put him on the bench of the Supreme Court you guys will fail in the long run not a smart move at all

  6. Kavanaugh Will Eventually Show His Self Again, Alcoholic History Will Come Back To Haunt Him, And The Five FFFFF Club, About Woman, Here It Is, Find Them, Feel Them, Fuck Them Forget Them, Forciblely. That Goes Back To The 70s And 80s, That’s Why I Know He Is Guilty, From One Alcoholic To Another.

  7. Nikki Haley would be a great candidate for the presidential election of 2024 after President Trump serves as our president from 2020 to 2024. All support for Nikki to become our first woman President in 2024 and to serve as our president until 2032. Nikki is a class act unlike the efforts of class less Hillary to be the first woman president of the US. Well done supreme court Justice Kavanaugh. We need people of courage like Nikki, Brett and Judge Amy Barrett who would make an excellent Supreme court Justice when the next opening happens. God bless America.

  8. Mickey was a great member of team very competent said to hear of leaving UN position!😟

    Jail immigrant LEMO driver for life!

  9. this is a great loss she has been tremendous person in the United Nations are we fixing to drop out

  10. Nikki Haley can’t be trusted. As Governor of South Carolina she promised the Confederate Flag would not come down from our statehouse grounds. She told critics the Flag was NOT Racist and did not harm anyone would would remain in its place on her clock as Governor. That was of course before we elected her for a 2nd term. Once she won, after the stupid Roof shootings, she met with Crooked Obama and announced she would have Flag removed. The promise she made before her election should have stood, she took our votes, lied to us and simply caved to that Muslim Obama. Illegal President Barack Obama and worst President we have ever had. Ben Carson would be a great President because he is a true American and Great Man. As for Nikki Haley, she is finished when it comes to majority of South Carolina voters.

  11. WHAT HAPPENED HALEY WE NEEDED YOU NOW AS EVER THOUGHT YOU BE BEST FOR THIS JOB SO WHAT HAPPENED THOUGHT YOU MADE PROGRESS ???

  12. Nikki Haley was one of the Greatest, if not the Greatest U.N. Ambassadors the United States has had. She leaves at a time we can least afford to loose her. Nikki Haley has given her all at the U.N. and is a true warrior for America.

  13. Please Nikki Haley change your mind and stay as our ambassador. You are wonderful and we need you!

  14. The brief article did not say why she resigned. That leaves the door open to speculation, which is never good.

  15. I think that all Americans really loved and admired Nikki Haley and are deeply saddened at her departure. She set a high standard as to what an American ambassador should be. Trust that she is OK. She will be greatly missed.

  16. I am afraid that is Trump’s plan, disaster for US foreign policy. Also fear Bolton will get the job if it still exists.

  17. I’m sure we will see her move to a much more important and worthwhile endeavor soon. This was only the UN after all where even with her increadable work, when you’re a diamond in a sewer and one against a thousand turds, who would want to make a career out of it?

  18. I was in a state of shock and disbelief when I saw that Haley had resigned. I followed her actions since my move to Columbia. In my opinion she did an excellent job as UN Ambassador and CERTAINLY did a good job as South Carolina Govoner. I am saddened to see her leave her job representing The United States in the UN. I am sure she has a very good reason for leaving and I wish her the best and may GOD BLESS her in this.

  19. This is a great loss- I thought she was a dynamic person for the job. Wonder what her plan is? Wow! Guess that position pays enough to be able to just walk away ?

  20. Nikki Haley, She is talent people.
    She has devoted to President Donald Trump and Republic Party.
    US Ambassador to the United Nations is better for a female.
    She needs to take a consideration to resign.

  21. Nikki Haley has been a terrific US Ambassador, this is a great loss for America in foreign affairs. She has handled this job with class, dignity, strength, and knowledge. Haley has exhibited a wiliness to learn anything she was not completely versed in which shows wisdom and strength in its self. When other countries tried to intimidate her she stood tough and was not a pushover. Nikki Haley will be greatly missed no matter what side of the political spectrum you follow. A true American!

  22. Ambassador Haley is as good an example and model of a modern woman as exists. She has been so constructive; this separates her from talk of “Feminist “ ravings.

  23. Well she did a fabulous job, there are others who will do just as well. I trust President Trump to pick someone who will do well

  24. So sorry to see Nikki Haley preparing to leave (though don’t make too much of it — VERY few UN Ambassadors stay on the job more than 2 years, and even fewer have a spouse and youngish kids). She’s done a GREAT job!
    I was hoping she’d stay until Sen. Lindsay Graham retired (or went on to be Sec/State), because that would give SOUTH CAROLINA — the SEAT of the Old Confederacy! — ONE AFRICAN-AMERICAN Senator (Sen. Tim Scott is already the only Black Republican in the Senate) and ONE ASIAN-AMERICAN (Nikki Haley’s family is from India). So much for the “Republicans are racists!” crap we her from the Dems all the time.
    Actually, I want to see Nikki Haley run for President, maybe in 2024. She’s a treasure!

  25. She is a terrific person. I have been a fan of hers since she was the governor and I hate to see her leave. But I understand that she needs some downtime to recover from the last several years of high stress positions. Hopefully President Trump will find another place for her when she is ready. Thank you, Nikki Haley, for your service to your country!

  26. My wife and I admire her greatly and pray for her all the time. May God Bless her in whatever she does!

  27. So sorry to see such a capable person leave. She did a great job and
    certainly should be part of the government.

  28. Awesome lady who did a great job at the United Nations… she will be truly missed… loved to hear her straight talk to allU.N. ambassadors … hope u will come back to help Trump in some other way, otherwise good luck and God Bless You. For your service

  29. The reasons behind this sudden change need to be closely watched and evaluated. I believe this sudden move is another symptom of the Trump administration’s failing infrastructure. I can’t prove this, but I am certain the truth will come to the light soon enough.

  30. That only means one thing: God will replace her with someone just as good and probably better. “For such a time as this” always seems to apply!

  31. Is she resigning in order to begin the “grooming” process for a running mate for 2020 Presidential elections?

    No disrespect to VP Pence intended but i think either one would make a great VP. America will have a woman President some day and from what i know about her i would support Nikki Haley for President! It would give her the opportunity to learn from Pres Trump and then run for President in 2024 if she wants it…

  32. Well great. She is the only one of the Trump bunch I could tolerate and I have been a Republican all my life. Jumping the line from red to BLUE. I don’t want nonsensical drama as the national objective anymore. Truly despicable…the entire staff and administration lead by incompetence and self interest as HIS goal. I am NOT AMUSED.

  33. Drumph will have to learn what his job description states, nobody wants to work with or for him any longer. “Oh no, he might actually have to read”

  34. She had been a big PLUS in the UN for this
    Administration , very professional and I’m
    sure Trump have another asign for her
    Thank Nikki for a good performance

  35. With all the crap that has been going on, I don’t blame her…. But I will agree, she will be missed… I wonder what her plans are now……?

  36. I hate to see things like this happen…. This country needs to tame down, It looks as tho we may need Father-God to step in.. this is just my opinion…… karen

  37. How sad why could she not have waited for after the election. Seems there may be a hidden agenda to undermine Trump.

  38. I hate to see her go! she handled herself perfectly standing up for our country and standing up to the other countries when she needed to.
