Trump wants Haley to return to his administration in future

United States President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley will be stepping down from the post, thus confirming earlier media reports.

Trump added Haley informed him six months ago that she will be leaving the post at the end of the year as she felt the need to take some time off as a result of the intensity of the job. However, the US president noted he hopes that Haley will return to his administration in another role in the future. He noted that she will be able to "have her pick" which role in the White House she wants to fill. Trump is set to announce Haley's replacement in the next two or three weeks.

Meanwhile, Haley insisted that she is not leaving the Trump administration in order to launch a presidential bid in 2020. She also stressed she plans to campaign for Trump's re-election.
