Trump Will Pick Heather Nauert to Be UN Ambassador

Trump to name Heather Nauert as next U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Trump expected to pick State spokeswoman for UN ambassador

President Donald Trump has chosen a successor to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, and they're a former Fox News anchor.

Nauert was named as the State Department spokeswoman in April 2017.

Ms Nauert worked for Fox News from 1998 to 2005 and, after two years away during which she worked for ABC, she returned to Fox in 2007, later becoming a presenter for Fox & Friends.

Following the vote, Nauert retweeted a comment by U.S. special envoy Jason Greenblatt condemning the world body's inability to pass the measure, but did not publicly comment herself.

Nauert and the State Department did not immediately respond to requests for comment. She announced in October that she would leave the position by the end of the year. She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or global relations.

He added: "She's excellent, she's been with us a long time, she's been a supporter for a long time, really - excellent".

Congress seeks 2-week extension to avert government shutdown | AP business
Congressional leaders unveiled a bill on Monday that would extend government funding for two weeks beyond Friday's deadline. He did not provide any evidence for the savings, but again threatened to close the "entire Southern Border if necessary".

The president has reportedly sought out someone who will demonstrate loyalty.

But Trump has also used the United Nations to try to advance his foreign policy agenda on Iran and North Korea.

Ms Haley has served almost two years in the post.

Nauert has kept close ties to the West Wing and is seen by the president as more inclined to defend him on the job.

She will face a variety of challenges if confirmed for the job, including championing USA efforts to contain Iran's influence in the Middle East and ensuring the global body maintains tough sanctions on North Korea as Washington tries to negotiate an end to Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs. Trump had a fractious relationship with Nauert's first boss, the former secretary of state Rex Tillerson, but continued to hold a favorable view of the state department's top spokeswoman.
