It was the first major appearance Haley has made since she announced her impending resignation last week.

President Donald Trump talks to Nikki Haley, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, at the United Nations General Assembly at U.N. headquarters, September 24, 2018. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and President Donald Trump's ongoing feud over Warren's Native American heritage.

He added that he was now interviewing five candidates to be Washington's next ambassador to the United Nations.

(Haley was outspoken in the wake of the white nationalist violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, in 2017 - making much stronger statements of condemnation than Trump on the matter.) Haley knows that when Trump leaves, the obvious inheritor of his political operation - and supporters - will be Vice President Mike Pence.

In front of a crowd of about 700, including Mayor Bill de Blasio, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Haley poked fun at Trump, Sen. Elizabeth Warren's heritage during a charity dinner Thursday. "Let me tell you", Haley said. It really killed at the UN.

"Two years ago, Trump was here and made some waves with his remarks. So this year, you wanted to spice things up again", she quipped after being introduced as the "next president of the United States".

"When the President found out that I was Indian American, he asked if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren", she quipped, referencing the Democratic senator from MA who released a DNA test this week that showed she has a distant Native American ancestor.

The accounts were used "to create and amplify divisive social and political content targeting United States audiences". The campaign aimed to boost Donald Trump's chances of winning the presidency, according to United States intelligence.

"Actually when the president found that I was Indian-American, he asked me if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren", Haley added. "As a member of the Trump Cabinet, it is a thrill to be out to dinner without being harassed", Haley said.

"As a member of the United Nations delegation, I do have diplomatic exemption from prosecution, or as Mayor De Blasio calls it, a sanctuary city!" "Actually I saw Jeff Sessions earlier today, but not in NY, I saw him on LinkedIn looking for a job".

"In the last two years, I've seen true evil", Ms Haley continued. Jeff Flake (R) would have attended, but he wanted a week to have the "FBI look into it".

The former SC, whose reasons for her split with the President still have not been fully explained, started he speech with a joke about Trump's thin skin. Actually, there was a benefit. That's the process Haley began on Thursday night in NY. Haley joked, according to The Associated Press.

The outgoing UN Ambassador joked that President Trump didn't know the difference between Indian and Native American, and managed to get jibes in about Hillary Clinton and House Speaker Paul Ryan.

Despite the speculation, Haley said during an October 9 meeting with Trump, "No, I'm not running in 2020".
