    It's likely one of many reasons she does not like working for trump. I don't think she resigned over just that, but may have used the timing to send a message. My guess is she knows a lot more of what is going on behind the scenes, and does not want to be part of it. Get out of town before she has to make a choice of choosing between two evils, neither of which is agrees with. Something like:

    Trump: "I am going to order that we either invade NK or that we allow NK and China to invade SK. Which one is better?"

    Shit like that.

    It's possible she doesn't want to get caught up in the cyclone that might be coming.

    Again, Trump will probably appoint another person with no foreign policy or diplomatic experience.

    Its no joke, Trump is considering his daughter Evanka Trump. He even made the suggestion himself.

    Unlikely to happen because too many people inside the the WH would threaten to resign if he did it. However, that does not mean he won't do it anyway.

    Trump thinks Hikki Haley is fucking HOT!, and he thinks his daughter is just as hot, therefore is fully qualified for any job. Doctor, Lawyer, Reality TV star, Porn actress, or Ambassador the UN. What's the difference!

    If so then he breaks the law; you can't give your family those kind of jobs; also she does not qualify at all and lacks the education and international experience other than selling some clothes made in China and wiggle her butt.

    There is ANOTHER First Daughter who actually IS qualified to be the U.N. ambassador, but Trump would never pick her, because her name is Chelsea Clinton.

    Here are some of her credentials:

    Clinton was born in Little Rock, Arkansas, during her father's first term as governor. She attended public schools there until he was elected President and the family moved to the White House, where she began attending the private Sidwell Friends School. She received an undergraduate degree at Stanford University and later earned master's degrees from University College, Oxford and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, and a Doctor of Philosophy in international relations from the University of Oxford in 2014. Clinton married investment banker Marc Mezvinsky in 2010. They have a daughter and a son.

    Clinton has worked for NBC, McKinsey & Company, Avenue Capital Group, and New York University and serves on several boards, including those of the School of American Ballet, Clinton Foundation, Clinton Global Initiative, Common Sense Media, Weill Cornell Medical College and IAC/InterActiveCorp.

    Trump apparently just offered the U.N. ambassador job to Heather Nauert. Until 2017, she worked as a FOX news host on the Big Story. Chelsea Clinton would have been a far better choice, but Trump would NEVER consider somebody's actual qualifications before hiring them.

    This morning, he made his official announcement about Ms. Nauert:

    "Mr. Trump also announced that Heather Nauert, the chief State Department spokeswoman, is his pick to be the next ambassador to the United Nations."

    Her diplomatic experience can best be described as "thin".

    She became spokesperson for the State Department on April 24, 2017, and was Under Secretary of State from March 1, 2018 to October 10, 2018.

    Since Trump reportedly watches several hours of FOX every day, the most important criteria for him is this:

    She's young (48), blond, and attractive, and she sounds good on television.

    Some of the comments in her bio, though, should raise a few eyebrows:

    In April 2018, Nauert voiced support for Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen

    In May 2018, Nauert said in response to the Gaza border protests: "We oppose actions against Israel at the International Criminal Court (...) because it does not help the cause for peace."

    In July 2018, Nauert stirred up controversy when citing the Invasion of Normandy as evidence of a strong relationship between the United States and Germany on the anniversary of the D-Day invasion

    Guy, typical; brains and international experience not required. If you worked at FOX then your brains are already "cooked".

    Forget this "banana republic" the world already calls us this. Forget the representation in the UN. The world will shun the US from now on anyway.

    Qualifications have never mattered to Trump on any of his appointments. Only loyalty and how good they look on TV. It doesn't matter if she messes up big time, just as long as she does her "Sarah Huckabee Sanders" impersonation at the UN every day.

    Again you've got the picture! But don't forget the "money" neither. The replacement for Kelly (Pence's "kid" assistant) of 36 years happens to be an multi millionaire. Thus, "money, looks, loyalty, Fox News association etc". is all what counts.

    Trump confuses POTUS with CEO. He appoints people like saturating the board of a large company to build power. His plan to select people is Loyalty - Reward - Super Loyalty. He recognizes people for their performance in the business world. The business world operates in super secrecy and above and beyond the law. Trump appoints people then goes crazy when some operate within the law. The tax code needs to be structured to prevent people from over ruling government. Thete is no information supporting this but I'll bet there are people that have worked against the USA or are planning to because of Bernie Madoff. There are 10 investors that lost over a billion up to 7.5 billion dollars. That is a lot of hostility. We have a democracy to chose out government. That democracy should take an active position against buying our government. That includes direct influence, indirect and lobbying.

    Yes Chet, lobbying is here an national "sport"; they are the one's who influence the whole society, including elections. It seems that this country is too busy with the Trump issues to focus on this. The NRA has "lobby-ed" with millions of "outside" "laundered (Russian as well) money to support Trump. We all suffer because of lobbyists; that's why drug prices here are 10 times more expensive than in Europe where lobbying is forbidden. It is so baked in here, even the pill "adds" are an other element which raises drug prices. Doctors "visitors/lobbyists" all eat from the same pie.

    Furthermore "appointments" here are also only tuned such way that Trump can act as an dictator; he "knows" it all and does not need experts; example the "tariffs"; neither Ross, Navaro, Meadows have the "brains" for it and certainly have no negotiation skills as has been proven. Let alone Pompeo; "Kim" is building more missiles than ever as well Saudia and Putin have the last laugh; Pompeo only smiles but knows nothing of the world and makes only an dumb ass of himself.

    The topic is Nikki Hailey and perhaps her replacement. Cannot we stay on topic?

    I would say probably "none". The only thing that matters to POTUS is loyalty.

    Sorry Schmidt; You've got to look at the whole picture ; thus why the selection of a stupid FOX woman. Again as I've said so many times EVERYTHING related to governing has an "cause and effect"; otherwise we would not need this site, because it would be a smooth running engine as Trump says.
