Trump to pick State Department spokeswoman for United Nations ambassador

07 December 2018

President Trump will tweet Friday morning that he is nominating State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, replacing outgoing official Nikki Haley, multiple sources tell Fox News.

Nauert was a breaking news anchor on Trump's favorite television show, "Fox & Friends", when she was tapped to be the face and voice of the administration's foreign policy.

However Ms Haley has made no secret of the fact that she has had policy disagreements with Mr Trump. She will have to be confirmed by the Senate to become ambassador to the United Nations.

Nauert and the State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

She had served as the State Department spokesman and was promoted in March to acting under secretary of state for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs.

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.

Ahead of the vote, the U.S. ambassador sent a letter to all UN missions to make clear that "the United States takes the outcome of this vote very seriously".

One of the reports came from Fox News, where Ms Nauert has previously worked as a presenter.

The 46-year-old former SC governor - one of the few women in the Trump cabinet - gave no reason for leaving, but dismissed speculation she was planning to run for president in 2020. She does not have prior political or policy-making experience. Barred from traveling with Tillerson, she embarked on her own overseas trips, visiting Bangladesh and Myanmar a year ago to see the plight of Rohingya Muslims, and then Israel after a planned stop in Syria was scrapped.
