Trump Says He Would Consider Former Adviser Dina Powell For UN Enovy

Howard TerryOct 10, 2018

Speaking alongside Haley in the Oval Office, the president did not give any hints to who would replace Haley at the United Nations, but added there "are a number of people who would like to do it". "We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems", he said.

In the days leading up to Haley's sudden and surprising resignation Tuesday, senior White House officials reached out to Powell about replacing possibly taking the role, according to three people with direct knowledge of the matter.

She's helped rein in Iranian aggression, moved progress on a denuclearized North Korea, assured Israel we have her back, and overall just gained the USA more respect on the global stage.

Haley was appointed to the United Nations post in November 2016.

U.S. President Donald Trump has said Nikki Haley will be leaving her post as United Nations ambassador at the end of the year. That alliance, in addition to her Goldman credentials and her time working for Bush, led her to being viewed skeptically by some in Trump's base and by nationalist forces in the White House that had been led by former chief strategist Steve Bannon. I mean, does this bootlicking sound like someone mounting a primary challenge? The president heaped praise on her, saying she brought glamour and importance to the position. "She's made it a more important - more importantly, a more important position".

She gave no reason for her departure, though there was speculation she would return to government or politics at some point.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has yet to confirm the former South Carolina GOP governor's departure from the Trump administration.

'For all of you that are going to ask about 2020, no, I am not running for 2020, ' she said.

We achieved great successes at the UN.

In April, Haley clashed with White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow over his suggestion she had suffered from "momentary confusion" when she announced that new sanctions against Russian Federation were imminent. "I just don't know who I'm fighting that day", Haley told Reuters earlier this year. Wolff, in his book, claims Haley has an eye on the presidency and Trump is seen to be grooming her for a national political future.

For the last month she served as temporary president of the council. "But I will tell you that there is no hate in this country". We passed the toughest sanctions against any country in a generation, pressuring North Korea toward denuclearization.
