He also said her decision to leave had nothing to do with President Trump's decision to move the USA embassy to Jerusalem.

As per details, The Egyptian-born Powell's announcement of resignation comes just two days after Trump's controversial declaration of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, that move has sparked protests in the region and fears of escalating violence.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said that Powell will continue to "support" Trump's "agenda and work on Middle East policy" after leaving the White House to return to NY. Whereas, Kushner for his part said Powell would continue to play a central role in peace efforts. "Although it was well-known she would leave after a year because her family has stayed in NY this past year, it's still a loss for the president", Cotton said in a phone interview with Breitbart News.

"Dina has been an invaluable member of President Trump's team", McMaster said. "Her sage advice helped provide options to the president, and her strong relationships across the USA government and internationally helped drive execution of the president's decisions".

Sanders added that Powell will return to her home in NY, but will "continue to support the President's agenda and work on Middle East policy".

She has been part of key U.S. visits to the region: accompanying Mr Trump to Saudi, defence Secretary James Mattis to Egypt, and Mr Kushner on multiple trips across the region.

That doesn't mean the president has always taken her advice. Speculation has centered on Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who officials say could be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, and top economic adviser Gary Cohn.

Powell was previously a senior official under President George W. Bush and later worked as a partner and managing director at Goldman Sachs.

An unnamed senior White House official told The Post that Trump's relationship with Powell was "really trusting", adding that his first year in office "would have been worse" without her. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). "It was known from the beginning that she would spend about a year in the White House, so it's not a surprise, but it will be a loss for the president and for H.R. McMaster".

"He talks to her all the time", this official said. She's been spot-on with her views on foreign leaders and how to handle them and talk to them.

Powell initially entered the Trump orbit as an adviser to Ivanka and was hired at the start of the administration as senior counselor for economic initiatives.

Powell accompanied Defense Secretary Jim Mattis on a trip to Egypt this year and helped secure the release of an American hostage.
