Trump to name Heather Nauert as United Nations ambassador tomorrow, reports say

Trump to name Heather Nauert as next U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

Sources are indicating US President Donald Trump has made the previously-hinted-at decision to replace retiring United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley with foreign-policy newcomer Heather Nauert.

Nauert was formerly a co-host on morning cable news show "Fox & Friends" as well as a correspondent for CBS News.

If confirmed, Nauert, 48, would succeed Nikki Haley, who said in October she would be leaving the United Nations post at the end of the year. Officials at the White House at times viewed Haley with skepticism, in part over her willingness to publicly disagree with the president.

Nauert will probably be pressed on her qualifications by Senate Democrats and could face a contentious confirmation hearing, but needs only a simple majority vote to be elevated to the role.

"She's excellent. She's been with us a long time", Trump said of Nauert last month.

The administration has also worked through the United Nations to try to find a political solution to the wars in Syria and Yemen, two issues that will confront Nauert.

Huawei executive arrested by Canadian officials at U.S. request
Sabrina Meng Wanzhou , the CFO of Huawei , was arrested for allegedly attempting to evade newly-implemented USA sanctions. Meng, 46, has been the CFO of Huawei Technologies since 2011 and vice chair of the company since March 2018.

Still, with Trump, no staffing decision is final until he makes the formal announcement, since he has been known to change course in the past.

The post is considered one of the highest profile positions in USA diplomacy.

Nauert was named as the State Department spokeswoman in April 2017. She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or global relations.

"She is clearly not qualified for this job, but these days it seems that the most important qualification is that you show up on Donald Trump's TV screen, and if you're successful in that endeavor, then you seem to be a top candidate to get a whole bunch of top positions in the USA government".

She was a reporter for Fox News Channel before she became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson.

It was reported in November that Nauert had been offered the job, but it was not clear at the time whether she had accepted.
