A 'Family Favorite' Emerges As Possible Replacement For Nikki Haley, Report Says

Haley, 46, served as South Carolina's governor from 2011 until she was nominated by Trump to the United Nations post, a move that surprised some observers given her lack of foreign policy experience.

Haley, often talked about as a future presidential candidate, and Trump spoke at a news conference after the announcement.

Ivanka's name is being circulated again as a potential replacement, though the White House is not naming any successor for "two to three weeks".

Born in Bamberg, South Carolina, Nikki Haley, born Nimrata Randhawa, is the daughter of Sikh parents Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhawa, both highly educated academics who immigrated to Canada from Amritsar before eventually moving to South Carolina.

She recently said she supported Mr Trump's administration but admitted they still had their differences.

Haley fought against what she called anti-Israel bias at the United Nations, and sometimes seemed to be channeling Trump's abrasive style of diplomacy.

During her tenure, Ms Haley supported the USA decision to withdraw from the United Nations human rights council. "And they've never seen anything like it, so there's a respect there". "I think that it's just very important for government officials to understand when it's time to step aside".

"I don't agree with the president on everything".

Diplomacy and national security reporter for The Washington Post, John Hudson, detailed some tangible reasons why Haley may have left her post at the UN. It came in response to an anonymous essay in The New York Times by a senior administration official that alleged a secret "resistance" effort in Trump's administration.

"I'm not sure there's anybody more competent", Trump said.

"We're all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose (you)", Trump said.
