President Trump will also nominate current State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to become the next U.N. Ambassador. Nauert also used to work for Fox News.

Nauert would be replacing outgoing ambassador Nikki Haley who announced her resignation back in October, Fox News reported. Nauert was named as one of Trump’s top candidates for the vacancy in the days after Haley’s resignation became public.
Earlier reporting that Trump decided against Nauert in favor of former Michigan Senate candidate John James proved to be false and pure media speculation. The president is now fully committed to Nauert.
