Trump reportedly picks Heather Nauert to be UN ambassador
07 December, 2018, 10:20
President Donald Trump has chose to nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace departing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, according to three people familiar with the decision.
Nauert's nomination had been rumoured for weeks, and she had started handing over some of her responsibilities as spokeswoman to her deputy, Robert Palladino.
It was reported in November that Nauert had been offered the job, but it was not clear at the time whether she had accepted.
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".
Perhaps feeling some affinity for another TV star with limited political experience, Bloomberg claims that Trump will chose ex-Fox & Friends star Heather Nauert as the US' next ambassador to the United Nations.
He added: "She's excellent, she's been with us a long time, she's been a supporter for a long time, really - excellent".
That means Nauert would wield less clout than her predecessor, both at the United Nations and within the administration, and as a result, would pose nowhere near the challenge to national security adviser John Bolton, White House chief of staff John Kelly or Pompeo. She oversaw public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas US embassies, consulates and other posts.
During Pompeo's tenure, she has been able to travel on official trips - something Tillerson blocked her from doing - and rose to temporarily hold the position of acting under secretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.
Nauert would take up the USA mantle at the United Nations including holding sanctions on North Korea and defending Israel.
One of the reports came from Fox News, where Ms Nauert has previously worked as a presenter.
