The UN ambassador Nikki Haley has announced that she is stepping down from her position in January.

In her resignation letter, Haley states that she wants a break from working in public service for more than a decade. However, many people believe that Haley may have had ulterior motives for quitting at a time when she seemed to have it all.

For one, Haley might be the Trump administration’s most popular senior official. Not to mention, she’s one of the only females. Haley has also said that she may take a job in the private sector (where the money is). Although Trump said that Haley warned him of her resignation months ago, people still have their suspicions that Haley felt dethroned after Mike Pompeo was named Secretary of State instead of her.

Haley has also denied rumors that she is running for president against Trump in 2020.

However, Haley’s ambitious career has proven that she isn’t afraid to speak her mind or go after what she wants. In 2011, Haley campaigned for governor against men who dominated South Carolina politics and won, becoming the state’s first female and American-Indian governor. Then, in February 2016, Haley spoke out against Trump, only to endorse him four months later. Haley also brazenly has called out those she considered unjust–including Russia, Syria, Iran, Myanmar, and the UN itself.

Haley’s resignation may have come at the perfect time. Rather then wait for the climax of the Trump investigation (which is probably not going to be pretty), Haley is getting out while she still can.

As for who is going to replace Haley, Trump says he’s considering Dina Powell, who was Trump’s U.S. Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy and is currently a Goldman Sachs executive. There have also been rumors that Trump is considering Ivanka (his daughter).

Eyes will be on Haley in January to see what she does next.
