Trump expected to pick Nauert for UN post
President Donald Trump plans to nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, a senior administration official said Thursday.
Nauert’s nomination had been rumored for weeks, and she had started handing over some of her responsibilities as spokeswoman to her deputy, Robert Palladino.
Nauert joined the State Department last year after a career as a television anchor and correspondent at Fox News. She would replace Nikki Haley, who announced that she was resigning in October.
