UN Ambassador Haley resigning

U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is resigning, she and President Donald Trump announced Tuesday, stirring speculation in the White House and beyond about the timing and reasons for the latest Trump shake-up just weeks before the November midterm elections.

The news blindsided many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters, and some key U.S. allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House. Haley, who is not personally wealthy, hinted in her resignation letter to Trump that she is headed to the private sector.
