Nikki Haley on Tuesday abruptly resigned as US ambassador to the United Nations, Axios reports.
The reasons for her departure are unclear and this was not expected. Haley reportedly had a discussion about her resignation with President Donald Trump during a visit to the White House last week.
The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider. But White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said on Twitter that Haley and Trump would meet in the Oval Office at 10:30 am.
Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, has been among the more moderate members of Trump's administration. She had a tough job from the start representing the Trump administration's agenda in the UN, a body the president has long criticized.
