Trump Announces Nikki's Haley's Replacement For US Ambassador to UN

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department

President Donald Trump says he'll nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert (NOW'-urt) to be the next USA ambassador to the United Nations.

He also said he would nominate Heather Nauert as USA ambassador to the United Nations, saying the State Department spokeswoman, a relative novice on foreign policy, is "very talented, very smart, very quick".

He told reporters at the White House that she is 'very talented, very smart, very quick.

If confirmed, she would replace outgoing ambassador, Nikki Haley, who is set to leave the post at the end of the year. A two-term governor of SC before joining the Trump administration, Haley announced she was stepping down with high approval ratings and a promise to support President Donald Trump in his re-election bid in 2020.

Trump's nominee to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert. He has said that Mr Trump "made the right call" when he fired James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and that he saw more merit in investigating donations to the Clinton Foundation than claims of...

"What we've really discovered over the last two years is that even when you have a relatively mainstream, relatively collegial, relatively influential ambassador to the United Nations like Haley, that only buys you a limited degree of protection from a president like Trump".

Trump told reporters last month that Nauert was "excellent", adding, "She's been a supporter for a long time".

Jon Rahm wins Tiger's event after getting putting advice from Tiger
Patrick Cantlay was 12 shots better than Saturday, closing with a 64 to tie for fifth with defending champion Rickie Fowler . Tournament host Tiger Woods signed for a 72 to bring up the rear in the 18-man field at two under.

But the Senate, which alone needs to confirm Nauert, is still under the control of Trump´s Republican Party.

And it's obviously not for nothing that she was nominated for an Emmy Award during her years in journalism, for authoring the special series 13 Around the World. That means Nauert could be overshadowed by Pompeo or Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, who had the United Nations job in 2005 and 2006.

Nauert, 48, has been touted for the post since November. "It is less clear that she has the experience to hammer out hard deals with China and Russian Federation over problems like Iran and North Korea".

The moves were expected; Trump's comments offered official confirmation.

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.

"Bringing Nauert aboard in a sub-Cabinet role will diminish the position yet further", said Pomper, who worked at the National Security Council under former President Barack Obama. Nauert was then appointed acting undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs and was for a time the highest-ranking woman and fourth highest-ranking official in the building. She did not accompany him on overseas trips or participate in his meetings with foreign dignitaries, and aides confided it was largely because he considered her a White House loyalist with particularly close ties to Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.
