Nikki Haley announced her resignation as US ambassador to the United Nations on Tuesday. The outgoing ambassador boasted that America is stronger now and more respected internationally than before Donald Trump's presidency. We look at Haley's record while at the UN. Also, most states ban felons from voting. How does that compare to other Western democracies? And, we caught up with an 8-year-old girl who found an ancient sword while she was swimming in a lake in Sweden.
