Published

on

The Trump administration is considering demoting the next U.N. Ambassador out of the ranks of the presidential cabinet, according to a Friday report.

“National Security Adviser John Bolton, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo all think the role should report to the Secretary of State, per sources familiar with their thinking,” according to the report.

The report noted that both presidents Bush 41 and 43 left their U.N. ambassadors out of the cabinet, while presidents Clinton and Obama elevated the position.

Big League Politics reported:

Last week, Haley discussed her resignation with Trump during a visit with him at the White House, according to sources who spoke with Axios. The news shocked many senior foreign policy officials within the Trump administration.

As former governor of South Carolina, Haley was easily confirmed just four days after President Trump’s inauguration in 2017. Haley has overseen Trump’s shift when dealing with the UN, which includes the United State’s exit from the UN Human Rights Council, which Haley referred to as the organization’s “greatest failure.”

There has been speculation that Haley may run for Senate in the event that Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) is elevated to Attorney General. Current Attorney General is Jefferson B. Sessions is widely speculated to be fired after the midterm elections.
