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

As reports broke Thursday night that former Fox News personality Heather Nauert could be in line to assume the role of United Nations ambassador and be named by Trump as early as Friday, not everyone was pleased.

Nikki Haley abruptly resigned in October calling her time as United Nations ambassador the "honor of a lifetime".

Two administration officials confirmed Trump's plans.

The decision could be announced as early as Friday, the source said, requesting anonymity.

"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 said.

Back in October, Nauert, a former Fox News host, was believed to be a "leading contender" for the position, sources familiar with the selection process said at the time.

In addition to that role, Ms Nauert was appointed acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs in March this year.

The current State Department spokeswoman has earned the trust of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, Bloomberg reported. Now, she is poised to serve as the United States' permanent representative to the UN's 193 member nations. She does not have prior political or policy-making experience. She oversaw public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas US embassies, consulates and other posts.

Shut out from the top by Tillerson and his inner circle, Nauert developed relationships with career diplomats.

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