Officials predict that President Donald Trump will declare Heather Nauert as the successor to Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations.
Nauert grew in popularity while working as a host for Fox News on “Fox & Friends.” She has since been working for the State Department but is still a surprising pick given her lack of foreign relation experience.
The decision plays on Trump’s preference for Fox News, which he frequently supports. Nauert will be the 10th person hired onto the Trump administration from the network.
“She’s excellent, she’s been with us a long time, she’s been a supporter for a long time,” Trump spoke of Nauert.
Things aren’t set in stone however, Nauret will need to gain approval from the Senate while proving she can rise above her lack of experience.
