Report: Trump to Tap Former Fox Host as UN Ambassador
President Donald Trump is going to nominate State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert as replacement for Nikki Haley, according to multiple reports. Before Nauert joined the administration last April, she was an anchor at Fox News and co-hosted Trump-favored “Fox and Friends.” Haley announced her resignation in October, saying only that she needed a break. Following Senate confirmation, Nauert’s charge would include maintaining international pressure on North Korea. Meanwhile, it’s unclear if Trump will keep the position cabinet-level or have Nauert report to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
