Trump Will Pick Heather Nauert to Be UN Ambassador

Trump expected to pick State spokeswoman for UN ambassador

Trump to name Heather Nauert as next U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

Following the resignation of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, reports indicate that U.S. President Donald Trump will nominate State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert as her replacement.

Two administration officials confirmed Trump's plans.

"I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020", she said at the time.

After Haley announced that she'd be stepping down this past October, several outlets reported that Nauert was expected to be shortlisted for the role.

But Trump has also used the United Nations to try to advance his foreign policy agenda on Iran and North Korea.

Still, with Trump, no staffing decision is final until he makes the formal announcement, since he has been known to change course in the past.




The state department has made no comment.

Nonetheless, during her two-year stint, Haley became a darling of the Trump administration and the pro-Israel community for her vociferous defense of the Jewish state at the United Nations, a body often seen as hostile to Israel.

Plucked from Fox by the White House to serve as State Department spokeswoman, Nauert catapulted into the upper echelons of the agency's hierarchy when Tillerson was sacked in March and replaced with Mike Pompeo.

While the senator acknowledged that Nauert does have State Department experience, he pointed out that "she has no experience as a diplomat", also arguing that she beings to the table "no meaningful experience in the government". But when White House officials told her they wanted her, she accepted. Now, she is poised to serve as the United States' permanent representative to the UN's 193 member nations. She oversaw public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas US embassies, consulates and other posts.

Just 18 months ago, she wasn't even in government.
