Trump nominates Heather Nauert as Haley’s replacement
Trump officially nominates State Department spokeswoman to serve as US Ambassador to the UN.
US President Donald Trump on Friday officially nominated State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as US Ambassador to the UN.
“I am pleased to announce that Heather Nauert, Spokeswoman for the United States Department of State, will be nominated to serve as United Nations Ambassador. I want to congratulate Heather, and thank Ambassador Nikki Haley for her great service to our Country!” tweeted Trump.
The announcement officially confirmed reports from Thursday night that Trump had decided to tap Nauert to replace Haley, who announced in October that she will exit the administration by the end of 2018, citing her desire to “take a break” from public service.
Nauert was brought on under Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and currently serves under his successor, Mike Pompeo. Before that, she was an anchor for Fox News. She will have to be confirmed by the Senate in order to assume the ambassador role.
Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, welcomed Nauert’s nomination.
