President Trump Picks Former ‘Fox and Friends’ Host for UN Ambassador

Trump to name Heather Nauert as UN ambassador tomorrow, reports say

When Trump fired media-shy Texas oilman Rex Tillerson as his secretary of state in March via tweet - their relationship by then bordered on poisonous - Nauert saw her influence grow under successor Mike Pompeo, whose combative style is more in tune with the president.

Trump announced Friday he was nominating State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace Haley at the United Nations.

When Haley announced her impending resignation in early October, Trump praised the accomplishments the former North Carolina governor had racked up. Nauert's only experience in government, meanwhile, is her current position with the Department of State - which is important to note.

As a New York-based anchor and correspondent at the Fox News Channel, Nauert oversaw breaking news, anchored programs, covered global and domestic crises and interviewed senior elected and military officials. He has said that Mr Trump "made the right call" when he fired James Comey as director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and that he saw more merit in investigating donations to the Clinton Foundation than claims of...

Asked about Israel's plans to demolish the Palestinian village of Khan al-Ahmar, in spite of protests from the European Union and United States lawmakers, Nauert framed the issue as an Israeli legal matter, referring the reporter who posed the question to the Israeli government. "If confirmed, I look forward to continuing the outstanding job Ambassador Haley has done representing your administration and the American people".

Senate Gears Up for Unpredictable Debate on Saudi Arabia and Yemen
Senators in both parties have been enraged over the killing and over Trump's equivocating on who is to blame. After that briefing, Graham threatened to withhold his vote on key legislation until he heard from Haspel.

But she has taken on a bolder role under Pompeo, assertively seeking to promote his message.

Trump is downgrading the ambassador's position to a sub-Cabinet-level post. Whereas Haley said she would remain gruff against Kim Jong Un furthering any missile testing, it remains to be seen if Nauert would do the same.

Schaefer notes, though, that Trump already has a team in place that he relies on for help in crafting foreign policy -Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

"In the absence of any actual diplomatic experience I suppose it's reassuring to United Nations supporters that she will arrive with no particular personal agenda", said Loren DeJonge Schulman, a senior fellow at the Center for a New American Security. But she has no experience as a diplomat, she has no meaningful experience in government.

The announcement comes hours after a resolution championed by Haley condemning the Hamas terror group failed to pass in the General Assembly.

Giuliani Gets Mad At Twitter, Doesn't Seem To Understand How It Works
A typographical error in a tweet written by President Donald Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani has linked to an anti-Trump prank. If someone tweets out a valid URL, Twitter automatically converts it into a hyperlink.

Nauert, 48, rose to fame at the time the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal threatened to bring down Bill Clinton's presidency, joining Fox News as one of a chorus of presidential critics.

While Nauert must still be confirmed by the US Senate, Benjamin said she will easily get the approval of the Republican-controlled chamber. The role of ambassador to the United Nations does not always have Cabinet level.

With her vast expertise in TV journalism, including eight years at Fox News and at least three at ABC, Ms Nauert certainly knows how to behave in public and deliver neat and well-targeted speeches.

But unlike White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, whose testy exchanges with reporters are routinely carried live, Nauert has enjoyed a civil relationship with the smaller State Department press corps as they travel the world together.
