And in December 2017, Haley said that women who had accused Trump of sexual misconduct "should be heard", a surprising break from the administration's long-standing assertion that the accusations were false and that voters rightly dismissed them when they elected Trump.

The daughter of immigrants from India, Mrs Haley was a frequent and early critic of Mr Trump during his election campaign whilst she served as the Republican governor of SC. "Her news shocked a number of senior foreign policy officials in the Trump administration".

Haley, the former governor of SC, listed the flights on her 2017 financial disclosure and asserted that each qualified for an exception based on her personal relationship with the businessmen. She said there were no personal reasons for her departure, she just knew it was "time to step aside". "No, I am not running for 2020." she said.

She was governor of SC when President Donald Trump offered her the job of ambassador to the UN.

'She is a bold reformer and has been an unwavering champion of truth, principled realism and integrity within the United Nations. "And I think we heard from them prior to the election".

"It was a blessing to go into the United Nations every day with body armour", Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage.

Haley's Tuesday announcement reportedly surprised even top White House officials, seeing as Haley said she even felt safe "directly" challenging the president's decisions in a Washington Post op-ed last month. An April 2018 Quinnipiac poll found Haley garnering a whopping 63% approval rate from Americans, with 75% of Republicans, 63% of independents and 55% of Democrats approving of her job performance.

Echoing previous statements from Trump, Haley said the United States under his presidency is now respected around the world.

Haley appeared with President Trump at the Oval Office this morning, where he called her a "fantastic person", and said Haley had told him six months ago that she might take time off at the end of the year. "Now if we say we're going to do something, we follow through".

"Nikki Haley has set a new standard for what American leadership at the United Nations should look like", Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said in a tweet.

Trump accepted the resignation, Axios news site reported, citing two sources familiar with the matter.

"She has a very bright future and will be a key player wherever she goes."
She saw herself as a fighter.

Earlier this year, Haley, 46, told Reuters that, "Every day I feel like I put body armor on", to protect USA interests at the United Nations.
