United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley resigned on Tuesday, two sources told Axios.
President Trump reportedly accepted her resignation, though it's unclear when she will leave her post. Sources said Haley discussed a possible departure with Trump last week, shocking White House officials who were surprised that Haley, who has worked for the administration since shortly after Trump's inauguration, would consider leaving.
The former South Carolina governor recently wrote an op-ed stating that she sometimes disagrees with Trump and raises the issue with him in person. "If I disagree with something and believe it is important enough to raise with the president, I do it," she wrote, slapping down rumors that she was a part of an internal "resistance" against Trump in the White House. "And he listens."
