President Donald Trump announced early Tuesday morning that US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley has resigned.
Trump praised Haley as a “fantastic person” who has “done an incredible job” and said he would gladly welcome her back into his administration down the line.
“She’s done a fantastic job and we’ve done a fantastic job together. We’ve solved a lot of problems and we’re in the process of solving a lot of problems,” Trump said.
“She told me probably six months ago, ‘You know maybe at end of the year — at the end of the two year period — but by the end of the year I want to take a little time off, I want to take a break,'” he added.
Trump said Haley has “been very special to me” and praised her as “somebody that gets it.”
Trump also said Haley could have her “pick” of administration posts if she ever decides she wants to rejoin his administration.
