  • Reports Trump Will Pick Heather Nauert to Be UN Ambassador

Bloomberg also reported Thursday that President Trump had chosen Nauert for the role.

President Trump has chosen Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as USA ambassador to the United Nations, three sources with knowledge of the decision told CBS News.

She became the spokeswoman to the State Department in 2017.

The 46-year-old former SC governor - one of the few women in the Trump cabinet - gave no reason for leaving, but dismissed speculation she was planning to run for president in 2020.

She will face a variety of challenges if confirmed for the job, including championing USA efforts to contain Iran's influence in the Middle East and ensuring the global body maintains tough sanctions on North Korea as Washington tries to negotiate an end to Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs.

Experience matters less to the President, an avid fan of Fox News, than Nauert's loyalty to the White House, the fact that she's a woman and her ability to be a polished proxy on television, according to sources familiar with his thinking.

A representative of the State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Haley also didn't have foreign policy experience when she took the United Nations posting, but she had twice been elected governor of SC.

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.

That means Nauert would wield less clout than her predecessor, both at the United Nations and within the administration, and as a result, would pose nowhere near the challenge to national security adviser John Bolton, White House chief of staff John Kelly or Pompeo. According to her State Department biography, she worked at ABC News prior to her time at Fox, and before that spent a term as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Nauert joined the State Department previous year after a career as a television anchor and correspondent at Fox News.

Ms Nauert, 48, was made state department spokeswoman in April 2017, her first government position.

Nevertheless, Nauert has gained Secretary of State Michael Pompeo's trust after being excluded from the inner circle of his predecessor, Rex Tillerson.
