Trump to name Heather Nauert as United Nations ambassador tomorrow, reports say

Heather Nauert is Trump's top choice for UN ambassador

Nauert has served as the State Department spokesperson since April 2017.

During Pompeo's tenure, she has been able to travel on official trips - something Tillerson blocked her from doing - and rose to temporarily hold the position of acting under secretary for public diplomacy and public affairs. She was in charge of the Global Engagement Center that fights extremist messaging from the Islamic State group and others, and she has a seat on the US Agency for Global Media that oversees government broadcast networks such as Voice of America.

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

Assuming that Nauert wins Senate approval after her upcoming confirmation hearing, the United Nations post will be her first policy role in the USA government. She spent her entire career before going to State at ABC News and Fox. She is a graduate of the Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and Mount Vernon College in Washington.

Trump announced the nomination in brief remarks to reporters.

"What we've really discovered over the last two years is that even when you have a relatively mainstream, relatively collegial, relatively influential ambassador to the United Nations like Haley, that only buys you a limited degree of protection from a president like Trump".

Nauert, who became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson, did not respond to requests for comment.

The move was a bid to keep the project alive after Kinder threatened to walk away amid fierce opposition from British Columbia. Not all the producers were happy with the Notley's order, with critics arguing that the markets can deal better with prices.

But her relationship with current Secretary of State Mike Pompeo appears to have been better.

In particular, she raised eyebrows in July 2018 when she cited allied troops' storming the beaches of Normandy as evidence of strong ties between the United States and Germany, precisely on the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. Her relative lack of experience for a high-stakes foreign relations position means that Democrats are likely to press Nauert on her qualifications during her confirmation hearings, according to CNN.

"It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and succession", Mr. Trump said.

He added that colleagues described Nauert as a quick learner who "executed her functions capably". "So on that level, Nauert's pick is notable", he told Al Jazeera. And the pick for the high-profile U.S. policy megaphone, seems more than justified, at least at first glance. "The more bureaucrats we have, the better the job gets done". "Ambassador Haley will always be a true friend of the State of Israel". Fox News executive Bill Shine was made a top communications adviser and John Bolton, also a contributor to the channel, is the White House national security adviser.

She does, however, have something in common with Bolton.

Ahead of the vote, the U.S. ambassador sent a letter to all UN missions to make clear that "the United States takes the outcome of this vote very seriously".
