After United States ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley offered her letter of resignation to President Donald Trump on Tuesday, she addressed if she plans on running for public office in 2020.

“As a strong supporter of term limits, I have long believed that rotation in office benefits the public,” Haley wrote. “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 such, Haley wrote she “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,” she added.

“No, I am not running for 2020.” she reiterated to reporters in the Oval Office.

Haley will continue to serve as ambassador to the U.N. until January of 2019, giving Trump time to find a replacement.

Watch the video below:

“At the end of the year, Nikki will be leaving and we will be in constant touch, I know that whenever you have any ideas, because you know all the players […] we will miss you,” Trump said to her in the Oval Office.

  1. With 6 years as governor and more as UN ambassador maybe Ms. Haley is simply being honest. Relax conspiracy theorists. Sometimes the easiest and most human explanations are enough.

    She may be a politician, but she’s also a human and mother. She’s done great service for this country and we should be grateful.

    .

  2. There is something going on. There is no way that she would resign just before a very important election without some sort of catalyst. She is really conservative herself, so it probably wasn’t based on policy.

    Maybe she is aware of something about to hit the fan; or maybe there was some maneuvering behind the scene; or maybe she was disgusted by the toxic Agent Orange she worked for. She distanced herself from something.

    • Yes. She’s uncovered evidence of Russian collusion and what really happened at Roswell. No, she doesn’t know if there was a 2nd shooter in Dallas or what was on the missing minutes of Nixon’s tapes. She had no idea that iceberg was going to happen to the Titanic.

      Seriously, I would not joke about Agent Orange or those afflicted by it. It’s not unlike joking about the first responders who suffered and died as a result of 9/11 toxins. Call him the Great Pumpkin or Orange Not-Julius if you must. Be original.
