Former United States Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro said that outgoing US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley intends to run for president, in an interview on Army Radio Wednesday morning.

"Nikki Haley does intend to run for president, if not in 2020, then in 2024." Shapiro said. "She earned enough of a reputation to outshine Trump and his scandals."

Haley herself has denied any plans to seek the presidency.

The White House did not provide further explanation of Haley's departure, announced on Tuesday, beyond her own desire to leave after two years on the job.

Haley, a mother of two college-aged children, reportedly noted to the president that she has been in public service for 14 years and wants “a break” to earn more money in the private sector.
