Nikki Haley on Tuesday abruptly resigned as US ambassador to the United Nations, Axios reports.

The reasons for her departure are unclear and this was not expected. Haley reportedly had a discussion about her resignation with President Donald Trump during a visit to the White House last week.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Business Insider.

Haley, the former governor of South Carolina, has been among the more moderate members of Trump's administration. She had a tough job from the start representing the Trump administration's agenda in the UN, a body the president has long criticized.

This story is developing.
