Trump to pick State Dept spokeswoman Heather Nauert as United Nations envoy

Trump to nominate Heather Nauert for UN Ambassador reports say

The report goes on to say Nauert had solid allies in Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.

He also said he would nominate Heather Nauert as us ambassador to the United Nations, saying the State Department spokeswoman, a relative novice on foreign policy, is "very talented, very smart, very quick". "He brings a level of stability and knowledge to the Justice Department that I think will be very powerful".

She would replace Nikki Haley, who was twice elected governor of SC but also lacked foreign policy experience.

Ms Nauert, who became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson, did not respond to requests for comment.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, a United States diplomat said, "Nauert seems to be a compromise candidate of two powerful foreign policy mavens of the Trump administration - Mike Pompeo and Bolton".

Trump to nominate William Barr, former Bush 41 attorney general, for attorney general and Heather Nauert as the United Nations ambassador.

Nauert will arrive at the United Nations at a time when the Trump's administration's attitude to the organisation, always sceptical, is turning disdainful following the arrival of Bolton in the White House in March.

Is Nauert up for the new role?

A White House official says the Trump administration is downgrading the USA diplomatic post at the United Nations to a non-Cabinet position. Further, she will confront a stream of anti-U.S. and anti-Israel rhetoric at the world body - something Haley constantly pushed back against during her tenure.

One video alone, titled "HUGE EGGS Surprise Toys Challenge with Inflatable water slide " has amassed 1.6 billion views . The income came mostly from pre-roll advertising on his YouTube channel and Ryan's Family Review .

Unlike Haley, however, Nauert is not expected to have cabinet status, keeping power over foreign policy firmly with Pompeo and especially John Bolton, the hawkish White House national security advisor.

Like Haley, a former SC governor, Nauert would come to the job with little experience in diplomacy.

She has been touted for the post since November. In a sign of the difficulties the administration has had, the UN General Assembly on Thursday rejected a USA -sponsored resolution condemning Hamas, the Islamist group that has ruled the Gaza Strip since 2007.

"And one of his favourite shows is the popular morning show, Fox and Friends, and Nauert was associated with this show for several years, and that surely had something to do with her selection".

Haley herself arrived at the United Nations with little foreign policy experience beyond promoting worldwide investments in SC.

Pompeo tweeted that Nauert has travelled with him since he took the helm of the State Department.

If she gets confirmed, it is unclear if Trump will plan to keep the United Nations ambassador as a Cabinet position, a status that would give Nauret more influence in the administration.

He said U.S. influence is at a "low ebb", partly because of the absence of empowered ambassadors under Trump.
