Timing of the announcement raised TV news eyebrows, coming as it does just weeks before the midterm election though Haley, widely regarded as a stabilizing influence on Trump, told reporters at a pop-up White House presser she will stay until the end of the year.
Mr Trump said that together, they had "solved a lot of problems". Haley's name quickly rose to the top when it came to potential authors of the op-ed - given her well-established independence within the administration - but she issued perhaps the strongest rebuke of the author in an op-ed of her own.

Mrs Haley was confirmed as United States envoy to the UN in January 2017. Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz.
Haley, 46, remains a rising Republican star who now has traditional foreign policy bona fides to add to her experience as a two-term governor.
She has been more outspoken in calling out Russian aggression than Trump, for example. She once threatened to "take names" of countries that have opposed American policy in Israel.
The daughter of Indian immigrants, Haley alluded to Trump in denouncing "the siren call of the angriest voices" who disrespected America's immigrants. "She challenged friend and foe to be better". For all of you that are going to ask about 2020, no, I'm not running for 2020....
