  • Reports Trump Will Pick Heather Nauert to Be UN Ambassador

Trump announced Friday that he plans to nominate William Barr, the George H.W. Bush-era leader of the Justice Department, as his next attorney general, as well as State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to succeed outgoing U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The U.S. would have "totally" gone to war with North Korea if it had "launched something" when tensions between the two countries reached the boiling point a year ago, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has revealed.

She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or worldwide relations.

If Nauert is confirmed for the job, it would cap a precipitous rise in diplomacy in less than two years.

"She's very talented, very smart, very quick, and I think she´s going to be respected by all", Trump told reporters. "I am not even thinking about it", she said.

"Pompeo's Brussels speech trashing the United Nations this week lowered our expectations for USA policy at the United Nations, whoever is ambassador", Gowan said. Here are three takeaways from Nauert's nomination.

Trump backer Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., issued a statement praising Nauert, but his Republican colleagues who sit on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee were silent. "I would say, you know, 'I don't know what he's gonna do'". She's remained somewhat controversy-free, her biggest criticism coming from a visit she took with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Saudi Arabi to investigate the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

She would replace current ambassador Nikki Haley, who announced she is leaving the position at the end of this year.

Trump is downgrading the ambassador's position to a sub-Cabinet-level post. Then-Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain, R-Ariz., and others like Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. - now a close Trump ally - hammered Obama for giving a deputy national security adviser job to Ben Rhodes despite his lack of previous experience in those areas. "It is less clear that she has the experience to hammer out hard deals with China and Russian Federation over problems like Iran and North Korea".

If she is confirmed to the United Nations ambassador post, Nauert would bring little diplomatic experience to a highly visible worldwide role. "If confirmed, I look forward to continuing the outstanding job Ambassador Haley has done representing your administration and the American people".

The announcement comes hours after a resolution championed by Haley condemning the Hamas terror group failed to pass in the General Assembly. A two-term governor of SC before joining the Trump administration, Haley announced she was stepping down with high approval ratings and a promise to support President Donald Trump in his re-election bid in 2020. However, she quickly learned key issues and how the United Nations operates. She primarily worked as a health insurance consultant in Washington, D.C., and became a spokeswoman for the State Department in April 2017.

Haley warned other U.N. Security Council members that Trump was unpredictable, and an agreement on sanctions needed to be urgently struck to prevent a conflict.

During Nauert's tenure at the state department, press briefings went from being daily events to being held once or twice weekly.
