Haley said her resignation was simply about needing a break after six years as SC governor and two at the United Nations, and Trump said Haley had even previewed a desire to leave as long as six months ago.

President Trump said she has done an incredible job and he will hate to lose her.

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

A former governor of SC who is the daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley is a rising star in the Republican Party and is often mentioned as a possible candidate for the 2020 presidential elections. Haley will serve until the end of the year, he said.

Haley has been the face of Trump's "America First" policy at the United Nations, steering the USA withdrawal from several U.N. programs and ardently defending his hard-line policies against Iran and North Korea over their nuclear programs. "She got to know China, Russia, India".
