Asked if he would prefer to have a woman in the job, he said "Yes", later adding, "I think I might prefer that, but we'll see".

While Haley's address also poked fun at the president and other members of the Trump administration, her comments on Warren prompted some criticism online.

'Actually the president called me this morning and gave me some really good advice.

President Donald Trump said he hopes to select a United Nations (UN) ambassador to replace Nikki Haley very soon and is interviewing five candidates for the job. It really killed at the UN.

"Oh look, I got the mayor's drink by mistake - there's no ICE", Haley said.

The Al Smith Dinner, a white-tie gala featuring prominent politicians, was one of Haley's first appearances since announcing her resignation in an Oval Office meeting with the president October 9.

Speaking of her current job, which she plans to leave in January, Ms Haley noted that numerous UN member nations are often angry with the United States.

Haley's parents are immigrants from Punjab, India. "So this year you wanted spice things up again, I get it, you wanted an Indian woman, but Elizabeth Warren failed her DNA test".

"Actually when the president found that I was Indian-American, he asked me if I was from the same tribe as Elizabeth Warren", Haley added.

Two years ago, Trump - then the Republican presidential nominee and Democratic rival Clinton traded caustic barbs at the charity event meant to raise money for impoverished children. That's the process Haley began on Thursday night in NY.

Haley said her working with the United Nations was an "honor of a lifetime" and said she would continue to support Trump as "a private citizen".

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

"In Syria, where the dictator uses chemicals weapons to murder innocent children, that is evil", the former Republican governor of SC said, adding, "In North Korea, where American student Otto Warmbier was tortured to death, that was evil".

"In America, our political opponents are not evil", she pointed out, noting that crimes committed against political opponents in Syria and Sudan are real instances of evil.
