Trump has pick for U.N. ambassador
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump is expected to announce he will nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
A Republican congressional aide said the president was expected to announce his decision by tweet this morning.
Trump has previously said Nauert was under serious consideration to replace Nikki Haley, who announced in October that she would step down at the end of this year.
Nauert was a reporter for Fox News Channel before she became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson.
