Feels it’s time to move on after two intense years as Ambassador and six years as SC Governor.
UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has decided to step down from her role at the end of the year. She said there are no personal or political reasons why, but that she just wants a break.
Trump said that Haley spoke to him six months ago about ending her tenure at the two year point of her tenure. She will remain there until the end of the year.
Haley said that during her time, the US is now respected. They may not like us, but they respect us. They know that the president means business. She also points out that they have cut the UN budget by almost $2 billion.
Haley also lavished a ton of praise on Ivanka and Jared Kushner. She even called Kushner a “hidden genius.”
Haley’s praise for Ivanka and Jared likely not a coincidence.

Haley said she will not run in 2020, but will campaign for Trump. She was one of the loudest critics of Trump in 2016.
Haley said she is leaving because it is her time. There are no personal or career resigns why. She just wants to take a break.
