But, as she said herself, she had a track record in shaking up staid, traditional government bodies - a quality that surely appealed to Trump.

Haley's decision surprised several senior White House aides, Chief of Staff John Kelly and Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump said Haley first told him about six months ago that she would like to "take a little time off" at the end of this year.

There has been frequent speculation that Haley harbors her own presidential ambitions.

Haley, a rookie to global politics, was an unusual pick for to be United Nations envoy.

Powell was with Haley in SC over the weekend, according to a photo posted to her Twitter feed. An April 2018 Quinnipiac poll found Haley garnering a whopping 63% approval rate from Americans, with 75% of Republicans, 63% of independents and 55% of Democrats approving of her job performance.

Her with-us-or-against-us approach grated on many diplomats, but she was widely considered to be an internationalist ally, our correspondent adds.

The president said she "has been very special to me, she has done an incredible job, she is a fantastic person, very importantly, but she is also somebody that gets it".

Though she's criticized some of Trump's moves, she wrote in a Washington Post op-ed on September 7 - after the infamous anonymous op-ed in the New York Times rocked Washington - that she "proudly" serves in the Trump administration. Some even suggested Haley was running for president in 2020 with Trump's support.

She said she would be campaigning for "this one", pointing to Mr Trump.

Pompeo has led policy on talks with North Korea, while Bolton has taken the lead on trying to implement Trump's hard line against Iran.

Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the United Nations, announced her resignation Tuesday in a move that President Trump said had been in the works for months, but which caught many White House officials by surprise.

"I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020", she wrote.

Her conservative views and plainspoken but warm style were popular in her home state. She cited US action on Syrian chemical weapons, trade deals, the arms embargo in South Sudan, U.N. sanctions against North Korea, pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal and moving the USA embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. "Countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do", Haley said. If Haley's exit isn't imminent, why not wait till after the election so it doesn't look like the administration is shedding one of its best-liked, steadying forces?

"They should be heard, and they should be dealt with", Haley told CBS. "And I do think that sometimes it's good to rotate in other people who can put that same energy and power into it", Haley said. I am proud of our record.

Haley has long taken a tougher public stance on Russian Federation than Trump, who has sought better relations with President Vladimir Putin.

The announcement has especially shocked supporters of Israel. Trump then decided not to go ahead with the move.
