In an administration rife with internal conflict and deeply distrustful of the UN, Nauert's nomination would place a less senior person at the worldwide agency than Haley, who reportedly sparred with other administration officials.
Nauert has served as the State Department spokesperson since April 2017.
Heather Nauert, who has shown poise in front of the cameras and mostly avoided gaffes, would succeed Nikki Haley, a former SC governor seen as entertaining ambitions for higher political office. 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...
But then, Nauert noted "Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-Day invasion. We obviously have a very long history with the government of Germany, and we have a strong relationship with the government". He said she lacks experience and that her loyalty to Trump and experience as an anchor on his favorite cable news network are insufficient qualifications.
"I think there's a real sense that she can communicate effectively". In 2017, when asked by The Washington Post about political donations made by lawyers on the special counsel's team, Barr said that "prosecutors who make political contributions are identifying fairly strongly with a political party", and added, "I would have liked to see [Mueller] have more balance on this group". "TV can be a blond wasteland". "Traditionally. we've either had people with a lot of experience in worldwide affairs and /or a lot of experience as academics", he said.
In her new role, Nauert would be responsible for maintaining worldwide support for economic sanctions against North Korea and continuing the Trump administration's unflinching support for Israel in the face of mounting scrutiny at the United Nations. "She's been a strong defender of Trump's at the podium, something he has clearly noticed".
Nikki Haley announced in October that she would step down at the end of this year
"For better or worse, the administration's United Nations policy is pretty established at this point, and there's no reason to expect that Nauert will deviate from the "America First" course that Haley, Bolton, and Pompeo have set".
