President Trumps ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, has resigned, leaving the White House with one less moderate Republican voice on his cabinets foreign policy team.
Ms. Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, had been an early and frequent critic of Mr. Trump, so when he named her the envoy to the world body weeks after his election in November 2016, the appointment was seen as an olive branch.
The daughter of immigrants from India, Ms. Haley favored free markets and global trade and earned international attention for speaking out against the Confederate battle flag in the aftermath of the 2015 massacre at a black church in Charleston.

Despite her personal views, she articulated the Trump policy very well. I don’t know who will step into the role next, but I liked the way she handled it.
The Times’ only concern is that they won’t be able to kick her around anymore, or to use as a cudgel against Trump...
Too bad, too sad!! (sarc)
It’s OK, but it is not good to happen THIS particular week. I just wish things could “settle down” for a bit and let Trump deal with some true issues, rather than have to deal with the stupid MSM on personality - high school issues that they make up.
She was doing and AWESOME JOB
John Bolton would have been great here too
Put Sebastian Gorka!
Did she deny writing the NY Times Op-Ed a few weeks ago, that almost everyone seems to have forgotten?
when Haley was running for governor, she was in last place in the primary, with no name recognition and no big-name endorsements. Sarah Palin endorsed her and came all the way to SC to campaign for her. The next poll after Palin’s rally, Haley had jumped to 1st place. When she was asked if she owed anything to Sarah Palin, she flat out said: “no, I don’t owe her anything.”
Haley has always been an ungrateful person. I don’t regret seeing her go, but I did regret that Trump gave her the time of day.
One can only deal with those insane people at the U.N. for so long without going insane themself.
Your POV mirrors mine with Nikki Haley.
She was excellent in that role and a thorn in the side of all the NWO wannabees.
My impression of her was that she was a dedicated employee, saying with conviction things that she didn’t necessarily believe herself. That impression would be consistent with her eventually getting fed up and leaving. If that’s the case, I imagine she’ll eventually start to criticize the very things that she championed in the UN.
Is it curtains for her?
She was good. Knew how and when to keep her mouth shut post election.
I hope it has nothing to do with Kavanaugh getting on the scotus bench. That would be a very stupid and lame reason. I wonder if it has to do with John Bolton who is supposedly difficult to work with or work for.. Perhaps he was encroaching on her territory. Either way, I would rather have Nikki Haley than John Bolton — Unless Nikki was a known leaker.
She did a good job, but is still a Bush League Republican hell bent on making America into North Mexico.
(And ineligible to be President having been born of two Indian nationals as an Indian national)
Trump just tweeted big announcement at 10:30am for my friend Nikki Haley.
[Put Sebastian Gorka!]
Oh damn!!!! That would be brutal!!!
I remember that VERY well.
She got some foreign policy cred for her resume, and now is likely to run for something. Graham may decide to not run for reelection in 2020.
Would the Democrats on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee look for their chance to match their colleagues on the Judiciary Committee on how low they're willing to go?
