  • Report Nikki Haley resigns from the Trump administration

Speculation is mounting that Donald Trump is set to name his own daughter Ivanka as the US's new ambassador to the UN.

Haley said her resignation was simply about needing a break after six years as SC governor and two at the United Nations, and Trump said Haley even previewed a desire to leave as long as six months ago. And CNN's was far from the only theory out there.

The president also said Haley has done a "fantastic job" and that she's been "very special" to him. But the Post's John Hudson speculates Haley's opposition also could've driven her departure.

President Donald Trump has accepted Nikki Haley's resignation as United States ambassador to the UN.

Haley's tenure as USA ambassador hasn't been without controversy.

The decision was announced to reporters by President Trump in a joint Oval Office appearance with Haley. "But I want to tell you, the people that know, know that Ivanka would be dynamite", Trump said.

It could be that Sen.

Trump told reporters earlier Tuesday that he expects to name a replacement for Haley in the next "two to three weeks", and said that he would be talking about candidates with the former SC governor and others.

On Tuesday, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres thanked Haley for her "excellent cooperation and support", his spokesperson told Reuters.

"I will say this, for all of you that are going to ask about 2020, no, I am not running for 2020", Haley said. "I think it's become maybe a more glamorous position than it was two years ago".

United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric tells reporters at United Nations headquarters that the United Nations -U.S. relationship, and the relationship between the secretary-general and the US ambassador, is "very critical".

But she fired back hours later telling Fox News: "With all due respect, I don't get confused". "I can promise you what I'll be doing is campaigning for this [president]". Fayad is considered a moderate leader with close ties to former Israeli and American officials, and Haley's actions against him were seen as too harsh by some mainstream supporters of Israel in the United States.

Trump, along with Haley, made the announcement at the White House on October 9. The president heaped praise on her, saying she brought glamour and importance to the position.

South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham said she had been "a true agent of reform" at the UN.
