Haley made the remarks while she attended the annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner, which raises money for underprivileged children.

"He said if I get stuck for laughs, just brag about his accomplishments", Ms Haley said.

However, her resignation was seen by many as a way for Haley, who has become a highly respected figure, to distance herself from the chaos of the Trump administration so that she can pursue higher office later on.

"Actually, the president called me this morning and gave me some really good advice", she went on.

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. So this year, you wanted to spice things up again. "It really killed at the United Nations, I got to tell you". "I get it", she said.

Trump on October 9 announced that Haley would be leaving her post "at the end of the year".

Haley was born Nimrata Randhawa to parents who had emigrated from Punjab in India to the United States. 'As a member of the Trump cabinet it is a thrill to be out to dinner without being harassed'.

She is the former governor of SC. "Actually, when the president found out that I was Indian American, he asked me if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren".

The dinner is named for the first major-party Catholic presidential candidate, former Gov. Alfred E. Smith (D-N.Y.), who ran against President Hoover in 1928.

Haley also poked fun at Mayor de Blasio and NY liberals.

"Using a DNA test to lay claim to any connection to the Cherokee Nation or any tribal nation, even vaguely, is inappropriate and wrong", he said.

"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.

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

At the time, Trump drew boos when he said of Clinton, 'Here she is tonight, in public, pretending not to hate Catholics'.
