Can Anyone Make Sense Of Why Nikki Haley Quit Her Role As UN Ambassador?

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in News & Politics



Nikki Haley, who resigned today from her post as the United States’ U.N. Ambassador, claimed that she has no intention of running in the 2020 election, and that she still supports Trump, according to a tweet from NBC Politics. That said, she's been very critical of his actions all throughout his term.

The comments came as she announced her resignation alongside Trump in the Oval Office. NBC News reports that Haley will depart at the end of the year. 

She's denying it, but a lot of people are saying she's going to run for POTUS in 2020.

I just don't like her. She rubs me the wrong way somehow. I'm not aware of her track record in SC so may be in that area of politics she's better, as an Ambassador though, I couldn't stand her. May be it's at the direction of the current administration but she came across as condescending and sanctimonious in the UN broadcasts I watched. I really disliked her. The way she was interacting with other ambassadors and hence other countries just left a bad taste in my mouth. If you don't treat others will respect and attempt to bully them to get your way while your on top ... others will remember that when your not on top and treat you in kind. Long term effects of the way the USA treat's others in the UN currently will not pay good dividends.

Maybe wait for the mid-term results then watch what happens to Sessions.

I'd bet her name will be mentioned in any consequent re-shuffle.

I wondered if it had anything to do with the Kavanaugh hearing and the rape allegation. The timing seemed right. But then I remembered that she was a Tea Partier so it's probably not that. Trump claims he knew about the resignation for six months. I don't believe that. I don't think that mouth could keep a secret for 6 minutes.

The real real question is: can Tina Fey do a killer skit of her on SNL?  She nailed Palin, does she still have game?

Maybe she didn't want to be in charge while t-rump handed the reigns over to Putin and Jinping.

I thought she did well as governor of South Carolina, but thought she was a shitty ambassador - but that could be because Trump was her boss.
Dunno if she'd do well as potus - certainly better than Clinton - we do need a president that will get us out of these never ending wars. and to bring back the freedoms and liberties that have been eroding away.

woodyville06 I was thinking the same thing. Just because you can hold it doesn't mean you know how to use it.

If Trump decides to not run? She'd make an outstanding candidate. 2020 seems rather soon though, could be for a 2024 run...

gohikineko she’s 46 which would make her 48 in 2020, not a bad age given that Kennedy, Clinton and Obama were all in their 40s when elected.
Waiting another 4 years would only mire her in baggage.  She has a positive presence right now and should capitalize on it.  
Carter came out of nowhere in ‘76 and Obama did the same thing in ‘08.  Neither of them had any national political experience and don’t appear to be any better qualified than her at the same point in time before the election.
Honestly, who else is the GOP going to run that has a chance?

woodyville06 Trump's a lock the way things are right now. Condi Rice is pretty liberal, but smart and experienced. The same group Trump beat out will mostly still be around in 2024, I liked several of them, and they were mostly 'coloured folks' to boot! :-) 

Who does the DNC have that even has a pulse? Fauxahontas? Lmao! BIDEN!! Woo-hoo bring it on! Anthony Weiner gets out of jail by then, he could run too? LMAO! ;-)

She's going into porn.  I bet she's sick to death of the abuse she must be getting from all the bitchy UN delegates not getting their way like they used to.  Or at least as much as they used to.

Draculya Didn't that octomom chick from a few years back go into porn?  Based on her, you don't need looks.  I'm sure you can get paid more if youre pretty, but I dunno if its necessary.

I've read this elsewhere but I'm going with it.  Lindsey Graham is auditioning for AG.  He'll take over for Sessions, Haley will run for the Senate Seat vacated.  I doubt that's what's going to happen but it's the theory I like the best.
