“Big announcement with my friend Ambassador Nikki Haley in the Oval Office at 10:30am,” Trump wrote on Twitter.

“At the end of the year, Nikki will be leaving,” the president said, according to pool reporters in the room. 

Haley discussed her resignation with Trump last week when she visited him at the White House, these sources said.

Haley, for her part, said the post had been an honor of a lifetime. Haley said the U.S. is strong again in a way the nation should be proud of. Haley also said nothing is set in terms of where she will land next, CBS News reported.

Haley, 46, has represented the Trump administration at the UN amid several international crises, including efforts to dismantle North Korea’s nuclear program and ease conflict in Syria.

Trump did not immediately announce her successor. The president said he has a number of people who want to take the job.
