Trump to name former Fox anchor Heather Nauert as next United Nations ambassador

President Donald Trump will nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as US ambassador to the United Nations, a source familiar with his decision said on Thursday, tapping someone with no prior policy or political experience to deal with some of the world's thorniest issues.

Current ambassador Nikki Haley announced in October she would leave the post at the end of 2018.

Ms Nauert, a former Fox News anchor, joined the State Department in April 2017.

"I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020", she wrote.

Perhaps feeling some affinity for another TV star with limited political experience, Bloomberg claims that Trump will chose ex-Fox & Friends star Heather Nauert as the US' next ambassador to the United Nations.

Trump had previously said Nauert was under serious consideration to replace Haley, though he's been known to change course on staffing in the past.

As artificial snow fell, William chucked artificial snowballs at a children's entertainer, and Kate was caught in the crossfire. The couple said they had handed over a present of a bottle of aftershave for William and Kate to take over to Cyprus.

Israeli leaders nonetheless thanked her and feted the results as proof of wide support for Israel's position.

Her appointment to the United Nations role would have to be approved by the US Senate.

The decision could be announced as early as Friday, the source said, requesting anonymity. She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or global relations.

Nauert, who did not have a good relationship with Tillerson and had considered leaving the department, told associates at the time she was taken aback by the promotion offer and recommended a colleague for the job. According to her State Department biography, she worked at ABC News prior to her time at Fox, and before that spent a term as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. She oversaw public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas US embassies, consulates and other posts.
