Ex-Fox News anchor to be new United States ambassador to the UN

Trump to name Heather Nauert as UN ambassador tomorrow, reports say

Bloomberg reports Ms Nauert was selected among a competitive field of candidates including former White House aide Dina Powell, ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft and ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell.

Nauert, 48, had been touted for the post since October when Haley, a former governor of SC seen as entertaining future political ambitions, announced that she was stepping down.

Nauert is a former Fox News Channel reporter who had little foreign policy experience before becoming State Department spokeswoman.

Before joining the Trump administration, she had no government or foreign policy experience, though she did work on some overseas assignments for ABC, including in Baghdad.

Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who has held the post since the beginning of Trump's administration. She would replace Nikki Haley, who was twice elected governor of SC but also lacked foreign policy experience. Since mid-October, she had rarely been seen by reporters at the State Department as Palladino took the lead.

Haley, in what could be a final diplomatic push, on Thursday failed in a bid for the UN General Assembly to condemn the Palestinian Hamas movement for firing rockets at Israel. Haley had lobbied hard to get the resolution passed, but couldn't garner the two-thirds majority needed.

Heather Nauert, who earlier this year had been considered a possible successor to White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, gained experience on diplomacy by working at the State Department, but she lacks the political and policy credentials of Ms Haley, who is a former governor of SC.

United Nations diplomats say that behind the scenes negotiations are central to an ambassador's job, and that presentation skills are also important.

Asked whether the USA was ever truly poised to attack North Korea, Haley told The Atlantic: "No".

Following the vote, Nauert retweeted a comment by United States special envoy Jason Greenblatt condemning the world body's inability to pass the measure, but did not publicly comment herself. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly before Trump's announcement.

He said that Haley has done a great job in the role, and he believes Nauert is "a very good choice in the same tradition". But when White House officials told her they wanted her, she accepted.

Because of her inexperience in diplomacy and short political resume, Nauert may face difficulty securing the job. But she has no experience as a diplomat, she has no meaningful experience in government. She is a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and Mount Vernon College in Washington. According to The Associated Press, Nauert's relationship with former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was strained. She traveled to the region past year, eventually joining Tillerson when he visited the country's capital for the day.
