Trump Delivered Massive Blow With Yet Another Top Level Resignation



President Trump has been handed yet another high profile resignation. This time it’s UN ambassador Nikki Hayley and this marks a huge loss for Trump and his administration.

Hayley has been the UN ambassador for the US since Trump appointed her to the office in 2016. About Hayley, the UN Secretary General spokesperson has said they had a “strong working relationship.” By all measures, this is a huge blow to Trump.

Hayley has had some detractors as well. The head of the ACLU has gone on record stating that, “History books will remember Nikki Haley as a key player in the Trump administration’s campaign to undermine universal human rights and international bodies. Haley will leave her post having caused long-term damage to key international human rights bodies and having put the United States in the company of some of the worst human rights abusers.”

Whatever your opinion on her may be, the lasting effect of this loss to the Trump administration will show in the coming months after her departure in January.

Here’s her resignation letter to Trump in full. This is unedited:

Dear Mr. President:
It has been an immense honor to serve our country in your Administration. I cannot thank you enough for giving me this opportunity.
You will recall that when you offered me the position of United States Ambassador to the United Nations in November 2016, I accepted the offer based on some conditions. Those conditions included serving in your Cabinet and on the National Security Council and being free to speak my mind on the issues of the day. You made those commitments and you have absolutely kept them all. For that too, I will always be grateful.
We achieved great successes at the UN. We passed the toughest sanctions against any country in a generation, pressuring North Korea toward denuclearization. We passed an arms embargo on South Sudan that will help reduce violence and hopefully bring peace to that troubled country. We stood up for our ally Israel and began to roll back the UN’s relentless bias against her. We reformed UN operations and saved over $1.3 billion. We spoke out resolutely against dictatorships in Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, and yes, Russia. Through it all, we stood strong for American values and interests, always placing America first. I am proud of our record.
As a strong supporter of term limits, I have long believed that rotation in office benefits the public. Between the UN Ambassadorship and serving in the South Carolina Governorship and General Assembly, I have been in public office for fourteen straight years. As a businessman, I expect you will appreciate my sense that returning from government to the private sector is not a step down but a step up.
Accordingly, I am resigning my position. To give you time to select a replacement, and to give the Senate time to consider your selection, I am prepared to continue to serve until January 2019.
At that point, I will once again become a private citizen. I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020. As a private citizen, I look forward to supporting your re-election as President, and supporting the policies that will continue to move our great country toward even greater heights.
With best wishes and deep gratitude,
Nikki Haley
Hayley has gone toe to toe with Trump on a number of key issues. But there is one glaring line that shows Hayley will continue to disagree with Trump even after she’s gone. “I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters,” shows me that after she leaves and is no longer under the iron fist of the Trump regime, she’ll be a vocal leader against his backwards policy updates.
Which is exactly the way she was during the election, before Trump put her in office.
