Trump to name Heather Nauert next United Nations ambassador, reports say

Reports Trump Will Pick Heather Nauert to Be UN Ambassador

US President Donald Trump has opted for State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the new US Envoy to the United Nations, replacing outgoing UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who abruptly announced her resignation in early October, citing "no personal reasons" behind the decision.

US State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert arrives for the release of the 2017 Annual Report on International Religious Freedom on May 29, 2018, in the Press Briefing Room at the US Department of State in Washington, DC.

She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or worldwide relations.

Experience matters less to the President, an avid fan of Fox News, than Nauert's loyalty to the White House, the fact that she's a woman and her ability to be a polished proxy on television, according to sources familiar with his thinking.

Before that, from 2012 until she was appointed to government by Mr Trump, she was a presenter on Fox and Friends, the news channel's flagship show that often featured the mogul as a political pundit before he ran for office.

"I think that he will be confirmed readily by the Senate", Gingrich said. Here are three takeaways from Nauert's nomination.

"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.

He noted that Nauert has worked at the State Department for almost two years, and she has been involved in key meetings and discussions, including working very closely with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

The contrast between Haley and Nauert's respective credentials and diplomatic experience couldn't be more stark.

Nauert would need to be confirmed by the US Senate, but if she passes that hurdle, she would become a top voice for Trump's foreign policy.

Pompeo was scathing about the United Nations in a speech this week in Brussels.

She has been in her current role as spokeswoman for the US State Department since April 2017. But she has no experience as a diplomat, she has no meaningful experience in government. "But these days it seems the most important qualification is that you show up on Donald Trump's TV screen".

Those officials include US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton, who are seeking to limit the power wielded by the US ambassador to the UN, CNN reported on Friday.

Nauert said on Twitter she was "humbled" by Trump's confidence in her and looked forward "to continuing the outstanding job Amb".

She's a communicator by trade and training - she's being sent to sell the "America first" president's unique foreign policy approach to the rest of the world. "The more bureaucrats we have, the better the job gets done". He too was a former USA ambassador to the United Nations - and caught Trump´s eye as a commentator on Fox News.

Nauert, 48, joined the State Department previous year with no government experience after a career as an anchor and correspondent at Fox News. The former SC governor served almost two years in the post and was the first Indian-American appointed to a Cabinet position in any USA presidential administration.
