The Day - - WORLD & NATION -

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.
