She couldn’t take the job even if she wanted to.

The graft compensation must not match what she expected with the time she's putting in.

She's a Republican. What else could it be? On to greener pastures.

She's positioning herself for GOP Presidential run in 2024.
And sees the path to include distancing herself from the current president?

She scrubbed her twitter account of all laudatory comments about Trump so that should answer your question.

Well, she won't be running for anything until he's gone and there are lots of Republican money sources that aren't thrilled (like Koch brothers) with Trump and the party may be looking for something different from Trump especially if he gets thumped.

I agree. She wanted to announce her departure before both the midterms and the Mueller report, in case either is a disaster, so that she doesn't look like a rat leaving the sinking ship. And she knows she has been lucky to keep her job this long, given Trump's record. She wants to be seen as leaving on her terms, having done a reasonably good job, not on his.

What does 4chan say? Can we be sure that so-called Nikki Haley ever actually existed?

Here are all the tweets she's deleted. I'm sensing a trend.

Of course, she will be publicly loyal to him in very broad terms but will distance herself from his ridiculousness. I gather she has some debts and wants to trade in her gov't experience for a big payday before entering back into politics.

I wonder if the stink of the Khashoggi disappearance/probable murder had anything to do with it. Someone with her ambition will not want to be associated.

"These people have no hope of again dying,
And so deformed has their blind life become
That they must envy every other fate.

"The world will not allow a word about them;
Mercy and justice hold them in disdain.
Let us not discuss them. Look and pass on."

And I, looking again, observed a banner
Which, as it circled, raced on with such speed
It did not seem ever to want to stop.

And there, behind it, marched so long a file
Of people, I would never have believed
That death could have undone so many souls.
That's the kind of bold flavor they enjoy in Albuquerque!

Is this why she resigned?
Nikki Haley accepted private flights from GOP donors while in office; IG investigation requested

Nikki Haley’s resignation from her position as U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday overshadowed a Monday report from watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) that called into question Haley’s acceptance of a series of free private luxury plane flights from three South Carolina businessmen and GOP donors.

Haley listed seven private plane flights in the “gift” section of her 2018 financial disclosure, claiming an exception from ethics regulations by claiming she has a personal relationship with the South Carolina residents who provided the flights.

CREW sent a letter to the State Department’s Inspector General to investigate whether the gifts were eligible for such an exception, noting all three men supported Haley’s gubernatorial campaign at one point.

Noah Bookbinder, CREW executive director, said the free flights saved Haley significant amounts of money compared to what she would have spent on private flights.

“By accepting gifts of luxury private flights, Ambassador Haley seems to be falling in line with other Trump administration officials who are reaping personal benefits from their public positions,” Bookbinder said in a statement. “Our ethics laws are clearly written to prevent even the appearance of corruption and improper influence.”

A spokesperson for CREW on Tuesday said the organization doesn’t have any information that would lead it to believe Haley’s sudden resignation was related to the call for an ethics investigation.

The three South Carolina businessmen mentioned in the letter are Jimmy Gibbs, Smyth McKissick and Mikee Johnson, and all three have contributed to GOP officials directly and through their own companies.

The report notes that McKissick’s company — Alice Manufacturing in Pickens County, S.C. — gave $32,000 in support of Haley’s gubernatorial campaigns, directly and through South Carolina nonprofit organization The Movement Fund.

McKissick has given more than 100 individual contributions to GOP candidates and causes — including $12,600 in individual contributions to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) — and his company has given $83,700 to Sen. Lindsey Graham’s campaign (R-S.C.).

Gibbs, founder of Gibbs International — a textiles manufacturer and equipment dealer in Spartanburg, S.C. — has made nearly 50 contributions to GOP candidates since 1989, including seven contributions to Graham, ranging from 2001 to 2015 and totaling $13,400. He also gave $10,000 to the Republican National Committee in 2004 and $1,750 to then-Presidential candidate Donald Trump in 2015.

Mikee Johnson, former CEO of Cox Industries — an Orangeburg, S.C. wood treatment company that recently sold after 66 years of family ownership — has been less active as an individual contributor. He has given to GOP causes a handful of times, including three contributions to the Republican Party of South Carolina for a total of $13,500.

Additionally, McKissick and Johnson both volunteered to help Haley fundraise for her re-election campaign in 2013.

Donald J. Trump

So nice, everyone wants Ivanka Trump to be the new United Nations Ambassador. She would be incredible, but I can already hear the chants of Nepotism! We have great people that want the job.
I can picture in my mind a world without war, a world without hate. And I can picture us attacking that world, because they'd never expect it.
