Indian American Nikki Haley has tendered her resignation as the United States ambassador to the United Nations (UN) amid rumors that she could be considered for 2020 presidential polls.

However, it remains unclear as to why she tendered resignation as the UN envoy. President Trump has said that some influential names are in the fray for the job, and it will take a week or two for the disclosure of the new occupant of the office.

Before helming the post of UN ambassador, Haley was the governor of South Carolina, and she has been known for her staunch criticism of Donald Trump, and so speculations are rife that her ideological confrontation might be the reason behind her ouster.

Haley would be remembered for her unequivocal support to much criticized abandoning of ‘The Paris Climate Accord’ by the United States under Donald Trump in June 2017. This decision drew flak from all quarters as it was signed to cut escalating carbon emissions, a go green initiative by the movers and shakers of neo-liberal setup.

In an astounding move in June 2018, Haley pulled out of Human Rights Council drawing criticism from certain quarters.

‘If the Human Rights Council is going to be an organization we entrust to protect and promote human rights, it must change,’ Haley said on the account of withdrawal from the Human Rights Council.

“If it fails to change, then we must pursue the advancement of human rights outside of the council,’’ she added.

Moreover, the 2015 nuclear pact signed between the United States and Iran was also called off under Haley. Donald Trump’s decision to quit the agreement didn’t go down well with experts as they said it would lead to Iran resorting to nuclear tests.
