US ambassador urges resignation

 The United States ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Nikki Haley, resigned. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that he accepted the request and that she should remain in office until the end of the year.
 Beside Nikki, Trump claimed that she had wanted to go away for six months. He praised the ambassador's work and said he hoped she would return to government in another position.
 "She did an incredible job," Trump told reporters this morning at the White House Oval Office in Washington. The name of his successor was not announced, but the president said a new appointment could be known "in the next two or three weeks."
 One of the commented names to replace the ambassador was Trump's own daughter, Ivanka, but she denied she is a candidate for the post. "It's an honor to serve in the White House along with so many excellent colleagues and I know the president will appoint a formidable replacement for Ambassador Haley," I wrote on Twitter.
 Trump also denied that he will point the daughter. "People who know her know Ivanka is dynamite, but you know, they would accuse me of nepotism," she told reporters at the White House.
Former Governor
 Before assuming her position at the UN, the 46-year-old Republican was the governor of South Carolina. Shortly after the official announcement of her resignation, she denied any plans to run as president of the republic by 2020.
 "No, I will not apply for 2020," he said, after declaring that it was an honor to be at the UN. "I hope I can support the president in the next election."
 A daughter of Indian immigrants, Nikki Haley has long been considered a rising star in the Republican Party, traditionally marked by white leadership eager to have female and ethnic minorities to broaden her electoral appeal.
 Haley quickly became one of the most well-known faces in government and one of the leading advocates that Trump's slogan "America First" did not mean "America alone".
 Novata in international relations, she quickly stepped into the front lines of the American diplomatic scene. But since Rex Tillerson was replaced in the State Department by Mike Pompeo, very close to Trump, she seemed more withdrawn.
 During her passage through the UN, she distinguished herself by a hard line against North Korea and Iran, the main foreign policy issues of the current US government.
She has cut off the US contribution to the United Nations fund and has withdrawn the United States from the Human Rights Council after accusing him of having "chronic anti-Israel bias."
 From New York he also echoed Trump's stern questioning to the UN. It justified the cuts to US foreign aid, and earlier this year under its leadership the United States left the UN Human Rights Council, which it accused of being partial to Washington and Israel.
He also criticized Daniel Ortega's government in Nicaragua, which accuses him of following the "path" of Syria and Venezuela.
 It has twice succeeded in having the Venezuelan crisis discussed in the Security Council, which only discusses cases that are a threat to security and peace in the world; and in September took advantage of the fact that the United States presided over the Council to convene a session on Nicaragua.
 The resignation of the ambassador's office comes just weeks before the mid-term legislative election, in which Republicans may lose control of Congress.
 See below for other important figures who have left the Trump government since January of last year:
Chief Environmental Officer Scott Pruitt: The then head of the Environmental Protection Agency was fired by Trump in July. The departure of this former Oklahoma attorney general linked to the fossil fuel industry came amid scandals over his lifestyle and inappropriate use of public funds.
 National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster: H.R. McMaster was replaced by Conservative John Bolton on March 22. His exit was predictable. In February, Trump had questioned him on Twitter after McMaster found evidence of Moscow's interference in the election "irrefutable."
 Secretary of State Rex Tillerson: was fired by a tweet on March 13 after months of tension and humiliation on Trump's part about his diplomatic strategy, particularly on North Korea and Iran. During his tenure, the former executive director of ExxonMobil was often forced to deny quarrels with Trump, remaining in office despite rumors that he had called him an "asshole."
 Economic Advisor Gary Cohn: Former investment bank chief Goldman Sachs stepped down as Trump's chief economic adviser on March 6 by the president's decision to impose new rates on steel and aluminum imports after several disagreements.
