On Tuesday, October 9, the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley resigned from the post, saying that it was important to understand when it’s time to stand aside.
US President Donald Trump accepted her resignation in White House on Tuesday and said that should leave at the end of the year. He said that Haley informed him about six months ago that she wants to ‘take a break’.
Trump said that she did a fantastic job and we together solved a lot of problems and hoped that she will be coming back but in a different capacity.

He said, “She told me probably six months ago, ‘You know maybe at end of the year — at the end of the two year period — but by the end of the year I want to take a little time off, I want to take a break. We’re all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose — hopefully you’ll be coming back at some point but in a different capacity. You can have your pick”.
Nikki Haley, an Indian-American whose given name was Nimrata Randhawa, was elected as the governor of South Carolina in 2010 and during Trump administration she was UN ambassador from US. She was known for her hardline on Iran and Russia in UN and also supported the US’ decision to cut the foreign assistance.
There were talks that Nikki Haley may run for the White house in 2020 but she denied for it and said the she has no plans for that.
