SOURCES: TRUMP TO PICK NAUERT AS U.N. AMBASSADOR
Washington — President Donald Trump has decided to nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace departing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, according to three people familiar with the decision. Nauert, 48, is an unorthodox choice for the U.N. role, given that she had little experience in government or foreign policy before joining the administration in April 2017 after several years as an anchor and correspondent for Fox News, including on the “Fox and Friends” show watched by Trump. Haley also didn’t have foreign policy experience when she took the U.N. posting, but she had twice been elected governor of South Carolina.
