Heather Nauert 'to replace Nikki Haley as United States envoy to UN'

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department in Washington. Trump announced Friday he’s nominating State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the next U.S

He too was a former USA ambassador to the United Nations - and caught Trump´s eye as a commentator on Fox News.

"She is obviously extremely knowledgeable and well-versed in the foreign policy of this administration and has answered questions and defended it in front of a number of different press inquiries", Schaefer said.

"I've known Heather for many years". Trump called Barr a "terrific man" and said that he was "my first choice since day one".

Her nomination comes after Nikki Haley announced in October that she would be stepping down at the end of the year. It was filled temporarily at one point by Trump's current national security adviser John Bolton. She does not have prior political or policy-making experience.

According to Benjamin, who is director of the John Sloan Dickey Center for International Understanding at Dartmouth University, Nauert is the least-qualified candidate to ever be named to the United Nations post. "Ambassador Haley was a far more high-level figure, particularly early in the administration".

Shortly after Trump made the pick official, The Washington Post flagged an exchange from earlier this year in which Nauert cited the D-Day invasion as an example of the "strong relationship" between the United States and Germany. The measure won a large majority, but not enough to secure the two-thirds needed for it to pass.

Nauert did not bring with her the depth of foreign policy experience of some of her predecessors, many of whom were veteran Foreign Service officers who spent their careers immersed in the intricacies of diplomacy and foreign affairs.

He added that colleagues described Nauert as a quick learner who "executed her functions capably".

His mother replied by telling him to be careful to which Fields shot back, "we're not the one (sic) who need to be careful". Heather Heyer , a 32-year-old paralegal and civil rights activist, was killed, and almost three dozen others were injured.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., who will take over as chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee next year, said in a statement that Barr was "highly capable, highly respected and will provide new and much-needed leadership for the Department of Justice". But without being a member of the Cabinet, she wouldn't have the same independence that Haley has enjoyed. "I have great confidence in her".

Before joining the Trump administration, she had no government or foreign policy experience, though she did work on some overseas assignments for ABC, including in Baghdad. Since mid-October, she had rarely been seen by reporters at the State Department as Palladino took the lead.

Haley is a powerful presence in the administration and won Cabinet-level status despite officially reporting to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. It has also sought to reduce funding for United Nations peacekeeping operations.

Plucked from Fox by the White House to serve as State Department spokeswoman, Nauert catapulted into the upper echelons of the agency's hierarchy when Tillerson was sacked in March and replaced with Mike Pompeo.
