"The secretary-general wishes to express his deep appreciation for the excellent cooperation and support that Ambassador Haley has always demonstrated", he said.

Speaking to reporters later in the day, Trump said his oldest daughter "would be incredible" as the USA ambassador to the United Nations.

More recently, there was an awkward moment at the United Nations, when Trump's boasting of American economic strength under his leadership drew laughter at a General Assembly session.

Haley has been a favourite in Israel as she pushed a hawkish line on Iran - Israel's implacable foe - and led the United States in quitting the UN Human Rights Council, accusing it of bias against Washington and Israel.

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez says in a statement he's "deeply concerned about the leadership vacuum" that will be created by Haley's departure.

Ivanka Trump earlier tweeted praise for Haley.

President Donald Trump indicated that Ivanka Trump would be a good replacement for United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, but Ivanka said she would not be Haley's replacement.

The South Carolina Congressman was referring to the recent inquiry by the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington - a left-leaning government watchdog that recently requested an investigation into Haley's history of accepting free flights from South Carolina businessmen. Ivanka Trump does not have any diplomatic experience. She also led SC in the aftermath of the Charleston church shooting when Dylann Roof murdered nine African Americans. Lindsey Graham tweets he expects Haley will continue to be a "key player" in their party.

Nikki Haley announced on Tuesday she is resigning as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, but the rising Republican star immediately denied she was preparing to challenge President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

Unlike some officials, Ms. Haley didn't present herself as someone who was reining in Mr. Trump like a chaperone.

Trump announced, "At the end of the year Nikki will be leaving".

Like all of her predecessors, Haley was constantly obstructed by Moscow and Beijing's veto at the Security Council, a tool the Russians in particular have used to bottle up the process, block United Nations reports that paint them in a negative light, and water down resolutions that would turn out far weaker than Washington would like. She denies she is running for president in 2020.

Haley also secured three successively tougher Security Council sanction resolutions against North Korea - which the administration has credited with bringing Kim Jong Un to the negotiating table - and an arms embargo against South Sudan.

The Associated Press wrote this report. She said she would be supporting Trump. At the end of her first year on the job, Haley held up a $285 million cut to the UN's regular budget as a sign of things to come. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak on the record ahead of Trump's announcement.

Haley was appointed to the United Nations post in November 2016.

Speaking to reporters later on Tuesday aboard Air Force One, Trump said he had five people on his short list for United Nations envoy, including former White House adviser Dina Powell, a friend of Haley's.
