Nikki Haley Resigns as UN Ambassador

Nikki Haley announced her resignation as United States Ambassador to the U.N. in the White House’s Oval Office Tuesday morning.

Haley is former governor of South Carolina and the first woman to hold the position in that state. A staunch pro-life leader, Haley was responsible for overseeing the United States’ withdrawal from the United Nations Human Rights Council, which aggressively pushed for abortion. She once referred to the council as a “protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias.” In her U.N. position, Haley was also a big supporter of Israel and of the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem.

Names mentioned as possible successors include current U.S. Ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell; former Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategy, Dina Powell; and even first daughter Ivanka Trump.
