'I Am Not Running': Haley Shuts Down Speculation of 2020 Presidential Run

Trump offered effusive praise for his envoy to the United Nations.

"She's done a fantastic job, and we have done a fantastic job together. We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems", he said. He intends to name Haley's successor within the next two to three weeks.

Why not Ivanka Trump? President Trump praised her warmly both on personal and professional fronts, their remarks belying raging speculation in the Washington commentariat that there was something untoward in the development.

Haley has been the face of Trump's "America First" policy at the United Nations, steering the U.S. withdrawal from several UN programs and ardently defending his hard-line policies against Iran and North Korea over their nuclear programs.

President Donald Trump tweeted that he has a "big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30 a.m".

In a joint appearance at the Oval Office, Donald Trump described Ms Haley as a "very special" person - adding that she had hinted six months ago she was considering taking time off.

Danny Danon, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, thanked Haley for her support of Israel, which he said helped change the Jewish state's status at the world body.

"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". I mean, I wonder why, but it is. In recent days, she had spoken out strongly in favour of Christine Blasey Ford after the university professor made sexual misconduct charges against Judge Brett Kavanaugh, saying, "It turns my stomach". She saw herself as a fighter.

After eight Premier League games, champions City are now locked on 20 points with Liverpool and Chelsea , while Arsenal and Tottenham are just two points behind.

"Hopefully, you're coming back at some point, maybe in a different capacity", he said, during a press conference in the White House, alongside Haley.

Before being chosen as Trump's ambassador, Haley, 46, served as governor of the state of SC - the first woman to hold the post.

"I said 'I am a policy girl, I want to be part of the decision-making process, '" she told CNN in a 2017 interview, recalling the conversation with Trump.

The announcement was news to many congressional Republicans involved in foreign policy matters, and some key USA allies did not get advance word from Haley or the White House.

"No, I am not running in 2020", she said. The New York Times noted Trump's nomination of her to the United Nations post was an olive branch of sorts to the Republican establishment after the bruising 2016 cycle.

Haley told the president that her resignation would be effective in January 2019 to "give you time to select a replacement and to give the Senate time to consider your selection".

"We're all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose (you)", Trump said. Countries might not like what we do, but they respect what we do.

"Anyone that goes and tries to spew hate on someone because of their color or religion or their place in life - that's terribly wrong", she continued. "It's something that we don't stand for in America". The former Republican governor of SC has been known to clash with Trump's views on several issues. Her staff was reportedly only told of her plans to leave this morning.
