State Dept's Nauert to be new US envoy to UN, Trump says

United States President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday he will nominate State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the new US ambassador to the United Nations.

Nauert worked as Fox News Channel correspondent and anchor before she became the spokesperson for the Department of State in April 2017. Earlier this year, Nauert was named acting Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs.

Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley submitted her resignation to Trump in October. Since then, numerous reports stated White House aides saw Nauert as a capable advocate for the administration's foreign policy.
