Coincidence? Haley resigns as Kanye is about to meet Trump – and Twitter knows what’s up

Unsurprisingly, some are worried by the prospect of Kanye replacing Haley.
Nikki Haley resigned & Kanye is meeting with Trump. I don’t like where this is going.— Talia (@2020fight) October 9, 2018
I hope there's no connection between Nikki Haley's resignation and Kanye West's visit to the White House.— Susan Delacourt (@SusanDelacourt) October 9, 2018

While others seemed more open to the idea...
I have no idea why Ambassador Haley has resigned. But I do know @POTUS is supposed to meet with Kanye West this week. And he has an international background and appeal. Just pointing out what could be a confluence of interests... https://t.co/eQyHTse326— Scott Simon (@nprscottsimon) October 9, 2018
congratulations to U.N. Ambassador Kanye West— Fret Redacted (@BrettRedacted) October 9, 2018
One speculator wasn’t so sure that Kanye would be the one to nab the job, but did at least put him on a shortlist of potential candidates, along with his wife Kim Kardashian and former basketball player Dennis Rodman.
Meanwhile, Trump has said that a number of people have expressed interest in filling the vacancy left by Haley – but he did not mention whether or not Kanye was one of those people.
