Haley is the latest in a long list of senior staff members to leave the Trump administration, including former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who was fired in March.

Appearing beside Haley in the Oval Office, Trump praised her and said he hoped she could come back to the administration in another capacity.

“We’re all happy for you in one way, but we hate to lose (you). … Hopefully, you’ll be coming back at some point. Maybe a different capacity. You can have your pick,” Trump said.

According to reports, Haley said she will not be running for the President’s office in 2020 but will campaign for Trump. Haley joined Trump administration in January 2017 and has been outspoken about human rights and racism.
