Nikki Haley made a stunning declaration Tuesday morning that she would be resigning from her position as Ambassador to the U.N. Haley made the announcement at a press conference in the Oval Office where she also announced her plans for the 2020 presidential election.
“It is a great day in the United States and I’m proud to have been part of the team,” Haley said in an amicable presser with Trump. “I’m a believer in term limits. I think you have to be selfless enough to know when you step aside and allow someone else to do the job. Thank you, Mr. President. It has been an honor of a lifetime.”
Haley then cut reporters off at the pass and announced her plans for 2020. “I will say this for all of you that are going to ask about 2020,” Haley said, “No, I’m not running for 2020. I can promise you is that I’ll be campaigning for this one. I look forward to supporting the president in the next election.” (RELATED: NYT Nikki Haley Headline Gets Fact-Checked By Its Own Accompanying Article)
