Nikki Haley is resigning as US Ambassador to the United Nations.
Commeting on the situation, US President Donald Trump said that Haley would leave her post at the end of 2018.
“So at the end of the year, Nikki will be leaving and we’ll be in constant touch, I know that,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office while meeting with Haley.
The President said that he hopes Haley will one day return to his administration and told her “you can have your pick” of positions within it. Trump added that he would name Haley’s successor within two or three weeks.
Before John Bolton's hiring, Nikki Haley was probably the most pro-war, pro-imperialist high-ranking Trump official, and therefore the most beloved Trump official by the war-loving US media. She held every conventional foreign policy view that has generated so much destruction.

Haley has been the UN Ambassador since Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. She repeatedly demonstrated a “strong” US positions on the number of issues, including the conflicts in Syria, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Russian alleged involvement in the Skripal poisoning and the South China Sea conflict. According to critics of the US ambassador to the UN, the problem was that this “strong” position was often related with fueling further the existing conflict.
However, some, especially the mainstream media, found Haley’s behaviour acceptable. She was especially popular in the Israeli media because she has repeatedly voiced strong support to Israel and has even threatened states that do not support the US attitude on the Middle Eastern state.
