In Haley’s resignation letter to President Trump obtained by CNN she stated, “it has been an immense honor to serve our country in your administration.” Haley also prided her work “speaking resolutely against dictatorships in Iran, Syria, Venezuela, Cuba, and yes Russia.” Haley is “prepared to serve to January 2019” so to give the President “time to select a replacement.”
