Trump to Nominate Heather Nauert as Next UN Ambassador

President Donald Trump  announced Friday morning  that he's nominating State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the next U.S. ambassador to the U.N.  Nauert will replace Nikki Haley, who  unexpectedly announced  back in October that she'd be leaving her post at the end of the year.

The president  revealed last month  that he was considering Nauert for the ambassador role.

Critics view her as an unusual choice since she doesn't have much in the way of government experience.

A former Fox News host, Nauert joined the State Department  in April 2017  and has served as the spokesperson for both Secretaries of State Rex Tillerson and Mike Pompeo.  But  sources told Bloomberg  that White House aides view Nauert as a good fit for the role because she has a strong understanding of President Trump and is a good communicator.  The Senate will need to confirm Nauert's nomination.
