NEW YORK (AP) — Former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell has told the White House that she is not interesting in serving as President Donald Trump's next U.N. ambassador.

That's according to a person familiar with the conversation but not authorized to speak publicly about private discussions.

Nikki Haley took many by surprise this week when she announced she plans to resign the post at year's end.

Trump had told reporters that Powell, a Goldman Sachs executive, was on his shortlist of about five replacement candidates.

But Powell spoke to the president on Thursday and asked that her name be removed from consideration.

The person familiar with the conversation told The Associated Press that Powell indicated she was honored to be discussed but felt it was not the right time for her family.
