As we earlier reporter
, Trump's pick to be the next United States Ambassador to the United Nations has withdrawn from consideration. Former Fox News host and current State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert has said she will no longer vie for the role to replace Nikki Haley.
In the light of Nauert's resignation, The Daily Caller has published a shortlist
of three potential nominees to replace her. If the past is any indication, their list is right over the target.
Here are the potential nominees:
John James was the 2018 Republican nominee for Senate in Michigan, but that's not necessarily what makes him a potential candidate.
James, 37, is a combat military veteran with a solid business background.
It was also reported that James met with former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley before Naeurt was nominated.
This rising star was on the shortlist once and he caught Trump's eye during his Senate run.
Grenell, 52, is the current Ambassador to Germany and served as the national security spokesman for Mitt Romney during his 2012 presidential campaign. Like James, Grenell also hails from Michigan.
From 2001-09, he served as the Director of Communications and Public Diplomacy for the United States Permanent Representative to the United Nations after being appointed by then-President George W. Bush.
Kraft, 56, currently serves as President Trump's Ambassador to Canada. During the Bush administration, Kelly served as an alternate delegate to the United Nations where her worked was focused on US/Africa policy.
One other potential name not mentioned in the shortlist is Dina Powell, 45, who currently serves as the Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategy to the President.
She also worked in the Bush Administration serving as Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs in the State Department.
