"No, I am not running in 2020", she said, adding she would campaign for Trump's reelection.
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. "The US is strong in a way it should make all Americans proud", Haley said. "We've solved a lot of problems and we're in the process of solving a lot of problems", he said.
Trump said he was considering many candidates for Haley's job and that a successor would be named in two to three weeks.
Haley thanked the president, saying that the U.S.is finally "respected" on the world stage. She had scripted history by becoming the first-ever Indian-American to be appointed to a cabinet-level post in any USA administration.
Last year, Nikki Haley and husband, Michael Haley, took on more than $1 million in mortgage debt for an investment-rental property, the 2017 disclosure shows. I mean, does this bootlicking sound like someone mounting a primary challenge? She's made it a more glamorous position. She represents the Trump administration's agenda in the United Nations, a body the president has long criticized.

McConnell calls opposition to Kavanaugh a ‘great political gift’ to Republicans

Haley is a former governor of SC who has repeatedly deflected speculation that she might harbor presidential aspirations of her own. After running for the SC legislature in 2004, Haley, who is married to U.S National Guard office, became only the second Indian-American government of a U.S state (after Bobby Jindal) in 2010.
"Nikki is a trusted friend and colleague", said Koro Bessho, Japan's ambassador to the United Nations who has worked closely with Haley on sanctions against North Korea.
The president also said Haley has done a "fantastic job" and that she's been "very special" to him. "As a private citizen, I look forward to supporting your re-election as President, and supporting the policies that will continue to move our country toward even greater heights". A United States official speaking on condition of anonymity told The National that "no one had seen it coming in the White House", at least not four weeks before the midterm elections. "It's something that we don't stand for in America". Trump tweeted that "The people of SC are embarrassed by Nikki Haley".
There is no evidence, however, that the scrutiny of those flights had anything to do with Haley's decision to leave her diplomatic post.
Representative Mark Sanford raised that story with MSNBC shortly after Haley's resignation.
