Trump offers ‘any role’ to ambassador
PRESIDENT Donald Trump has accepted the resignation of his UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.
He said she would be leaving the post at the end of the year after doing “an incredible job”.
Joined by the former South Carolina governor in the Oval Office, he invited her to come back in a different role, adding: “You can have your pick.”
Mr Trump said Mrs Haley ( above) told him six months ago she wanted to take some time off.
Her exit comes after she served as the temporary president of the UN Security Council for a month.
Mrs Haley’s Twitter bio yesterday removed all references to her role as UN ambassador.
In April, she clashed with the White House when a Trump aide suggested she had prematurely announced a new round of sanctions against Russia.
