Below, via the Washington Post, is Haley's resignation letter. "But I will tell you that I think it's time". "You can have your pick", Trump said.

Appearing beside Haley in the Oval Office, Trump praised her and said he hoped she could come back to the administration.

She thanked Trump for giving her the "honor of a lifetime" to "serve a country I love so very much".

Haley had been an early and frequent critic of Trump, so when he named her the envoy to the world body weeks after his election in November 2016, the appointment was seen as an olive branch.

At the UN, Haley helped spearhead the Trump administration's efforts to combat what it alleged to be anti-American and anti-Israel actions by the global body.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow suggested she had got "ahead of the curve" and had a "momentary confusion".

Sitting alongside Trump in the Oval Office Tuesday, Haley went on to praise the current administration's foreign policy, saying "the U.S. is respected". News reported that Haley had also informed her staff she would be resigning.

On Monday, the federal watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) called for the State Department's inspector general to launch an ethics investigation into Haley, regarding seven free flights on private planes that Haley and her husband accepted from three SC businessmen in 2017. We passed the toughest sanctions against any country in a generation, pressuring North Korea toward denuclearization.

The 55-year-old will be desperate to achieve this quickly as United's next run of fixtures are incredibly competitive. It's not like when he was at Inter Milan in the Champions League and he could park the bus defensively.

She also took credit for cutting the USA contribution to the United Nations budget, characterizing the move as moving the organization toward more efficiency.

Haley sought to tamp down speculation she may challenge President Trump in two years.

In December, she said that women who had accused Trump of sexual misconduct "should be heard". Several senior White House aides wondered about the timing of her decision, weeks before midterm congressional elections.

The six-month timeline also coincides with a high-profile spat between Haley and the White House in April, when she drew the president's ire for previewing in a television appearance the administration's planned imposition of a new round of sanctions on Russian Federation.

Axios was first to report the news that Haley resigned. She saw herself as a fighter.

It will be a tough decision, he said, because Haley had made United Nations ambassador a more "glamorous" position than it had been in previous years.

Susan Page, D.C. Bureau Chief for USA Today, said on MSNBC shortly after the presser, "So maybe Jared Kushner or Ivanka is going to be the new United Nations ambassador, with that big endorsement". At the same time, Haley lost on key policy debates, including a further reduction in the number of refugees who can be resettled in the United States.
