Nikki Haley Resigns. What Will She Do Now?
It was surprising news Tuesday morning when word that U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley would be resigning from the United Nations:
President Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki R. Haley, said on Tuesday she would resign at the end of the year, marking a high-profile departure of one of the few women in the president’s cabinet.
Ms. Haley, a former governor of South Carolina, had been an early and frequent critic of Mr. 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.
South Carolina politicos were in the dark about her resignation, and some questioned the closeness to the mid-term elections.
A rising star within the GOP, speculation began immediately about her next move. She immediately ruled out a presidential run in 2020.
What will be her next move?
