After an anonymous USA official published an op-ed last month declaring that there was an internal resistance to Trump's policies, Haley published her own op-ed in the Washington Post declaring her fealty to the president.
"It was a blessing to go into the United Nations every day with body armor", Haley said, saying her job was to defend America on the world stage.
Trump said there are "many good people" who want the position at the United Nations and said he and Haley would be looking at who he will select for her successor.
It could be that Sen.
Haley was governor of SC when she was tapped by Trump to be the US envoy to the United Nations.
Twitter also reacted to a New York Times article on Haley's resignation which described her as a "moderate" Republican, with many of her critics astounded that the paper would choose to label her that way, given her apparent loyalty to Trump and conservatives. "She has always planned to serve one year before returning home to NY, where she will continue to support the president's agenda and work on Middle East policy", Sanders said at the time.
"I have given everything I've got these last eight years".
As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner.
White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the two would meet in the Oval Office with media present.
There is no evidence, however, that the scrutiny of those flights had anything to do with Haley's decision to leave her diplomatic post. "I think CNN would support her".
The role required her to represent the United States and protect the country's interests at meetings of the UN Security Council.
"I don't agree with the president on everything". He allowed her to address reporters from the Oval Office, a departure from the abrupt tweets Trump often uses to announce high-level staff changes.
And on Monday, the Washington, D.C. -based watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington called for an investigation into seven private flights taken by Haley that were paid for by SC business executives.
The daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley had always been seen as a rising star in the Republican Party which has eagerly sought female and ethnic minorities to broaden the appeal beyond its traditional white demographic.
