Trump of­fers ‘any role’ to am­bas­sador

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

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.
