President Trump Expected to Select Heather Nauert as UN Ambassador

President Trump is expected to announce his nominee for the ambassador to the U.N. Friday.

First reports say he’s picking Heather Nauert, a former Fox News host who is currently serving as state department spokeswoman.

She has less experience than current ambassador Nikki Haley, who was the former South Carolina governor but people close to the White House say the president cares more about Nauert’s loyalty than her experience.

However, it could be an issue during the Senate confirmation hearing where Democrats are likely to question her qualifications.

Both the secretary of state and national security adviser support downgrading the U.N. ambassador position from a cabinet-level job.
