BREAKING: UN Ambassador to U.S Nikki Haley Resigns, Trump accepts her resignation


United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley


United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has resigned, the latest departure from President Donald Trump's national security circle, a senior White House official said Tuesday.
The former South Carolina governor had served since January 2017. The reason for her departure was not immediately clear, and the official did not comment on what led to her resignation.
Haley has represented the Trump administration at the UN amid several international crises, including efforts to dismantle North Korea's nuclear program and ease conflict in Syria.
She walked past reporters in the White House on Tuesday morning but did not comment. Trump then tweeted that he would have a "big announcement" with Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30 a.m. ET.
Big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30am.
Haley is only the latest high profile Trump foreign policy official to leave the administration. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and two national security advisors, Michael Flynn and H.R. McMaster, all served only brief stints.

Ethics groups had recently requested an investigation into Haley over whether she inappropriately accepted flights from South Carolina businessmen.
