Nauert has also taken criticism over her years of experience as a Fox News anchor, which some argue are a poor substitute for diplomatic experience.

Her rise since then has been stunning.

If confirmed by the Senate, Heather Nauert, a 48-year-old former Fox News Channel reporter, will replace Nikki Haley.

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. She has been chief spokeswoman for the State Department since April previous year, having been poached from Fox. She oversaw public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas USA embassies, consulates and other posts.

On the United Nations front, Ms. Nauert, 48, will replace Nikki Haley at the United Nations, who will resign at the end of this year. She worked as a breaking news anchor for "Fox & Friends".

Trump frequently tweets quotes from Fox News personalities and programs, knowing how popular the conservative-leaning network.

Originally from Wisconsin, she attended Mount Vernon College, a now-defunct all-women´s school in Washington, before graduating from the elite Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

The President announced Friday he would nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace Haley. It was, after all, just previous year when Nauert was a Fox News personality, using her "Fox and Friends" platform to, among other things, endorse Ivanka Trump's branded merchandise.

Under Tillerson, Nauert grew frustrated at not having close access to her immediate boss and had been seen as quitting to return to NY, where her family has remained.




The 48-year-old native of IL is deemed by State Department colleagues as "hard-working" and "well in over her head at an understaffed agency", reports by USA Today and Wbir suggest.

U.S. President Donald Trump has chosen former Attorney-General (A-G) of the George H.W. Bush administration, William P. Barr, for the role again.

Nauert has not been the first person from Fox News to be appointed in the Trump administration.

Asked about Israel's plans to demolish the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar, in spite of protests from the European Union and U.S. lawmakers, Nauert framed the issue as an Israeli legal matter, referring the reporter who posed the question to the Israeli government. The more treaties we sign, the safer we supposedly are. "We need a seasoned, steady and strong voice who understands the subtleties of multinational diplomacy", he said.

"Although an investigation shouldn't be launched just because a President wants it, the ultimate question is whether the matter warrants investigation", Mr. Barr had said.

She will also have to deal with issues such as North Korea's nuclear program, Yemen's starvation as well as back US's effort's to contain Iran's influence over West Asia.

While Nauert will be a leading administration voice on Trump's foreign policy, a White House official told The Associated Press that her post would be a non-Cabinet position.

She does, however, have something in common with Bolton.

Her appointment to the United Nations role would have to be approved by the US Senate.
