Trump’s pick for United Nations ambassador went to Pine Manor College

WASHINGTON: Less than two years ago, Heather Nauert was working as an anchor on Donald Trump´s favorite news show, "Fox & Friends".

United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley said in a new interview she's "not even thinking" about running for president in 2024. She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or global relations. "She is a fine and capable person", Graham said, adding that she had the confidence of Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Nauert assumed the new high-profile role after holding just one position in government, that of State Department spokesperson, which she held from late April 2017 until now, but this was apparently more than outweighed by her extensive journalistic experience.

CNN, while citing her "precipitous rise" since arriving at the state department, also speculates how the Democrats are likely to "grill Nauert" on her qualifications for the position.

If confirmed, Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who is leaving the post at the end of the year.

Nauert covered domestic and global stories as an ABC News correspondent from 2005 to 2007 prior to joining Fox. With a master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, she had come to Fox from ABC News, where she was a general assignment reporter.

Nauert was criticised last month, when she posted a tourist-style Instagram photo from outside a royal court in Riyadh; she was in Saudi Arabia on an official visit with Pompeo to discuss the fallout from the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Maybe the new ambassador will eventually become a rock star beyond the ranks of Fox News viewers and enhance her own power, so long as she doesn't undercut the ultimate Boss. But now, her experience in that State Department role is coming back to haunt her as well.

Nauert raised eyebrows in June when she appeared to describe the D-Day landings - when the United States, Britain and allies stormed Nazi-occupied France in 1944 - as evidence of a longtime "strong relationship" with Germany.

But the former television anchor has mostly avoided snafus, keeping regular press briefings concise and winning praise for her poise as she fields a dizzying array of foreign policy questions.

Who made the better point? The more treaties we sign, the safer we supposedly are.

Heritage Foundation fellow Brett Schaefer said Nauert has proven she has the ability to explain and defend USA foreign policy, the core requirement for being a US ambassador to the world body.

"Truly no one believes me: I am not even thinking about it", Haley said.
