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.

“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.
