Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, on Tuesday raised concerns about what he called the “leadership vacuum” that will be left behind following Nikki Haley’s resignation as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

“Today’s announcement that Ambassador Haley is resigning is yet another sign of the Trump Administration’s chaotic foreign policy,” Menendez, a vocal critic of the Trump administration, said in a statement.

“I am deeply concerned about the leadership vacuum she leaves and the national security impact of her departure at this time of continued disarray for this Administration,” he added.

Her departure was lamented by a number of Washington officials, including Republicans.
