US President Donald Trump plans to nominate Heather Nauert, the chief State Department spokeswoman, as his next envoy to the United Nations to replace Indian-American Nikki Haley, according to media reports.

Haley told The Weekly Standard she would remain in NY for the next two years so her son could finish high school there, and she wanted to remain an active voice on foreign policy. However, she quickly learned key issues and how the United Nations operates.

If she gets the job, Nauert would take the post with less clout than Haley, a former SC governor who announced in October that she would step down at the end of this year.

If confirmed, Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who is leaving the post at the end of the year. "Many of our students choose a path of service to others, so we are thrilled to have played a part in Heather Nauert's impressive career and wish her success in her new role", Zinnar-Shavit said in an e-mail.

Ms Nauert, 48, was made state department spokeswoman in April 2017, her first government position. Nauert had little foreign policy experience before taking the podium as spokeswoman for the State Department.

CNN, while citing her "precipitous rise" since arriving at the state department, also speculates how the Democrats are likely to "grill Nauert" on her qualifications for the position.

Heather Nauert, 48, has been nominated as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, capping a swift rise through the administration's ranks.

Because wind gusts can trick the seismometer, the lander is equipped with an air pressure sensor to isolate that background noise. But the scientists warned not to get too attached to these recordings, because they won't last long.

"Truly no one believes me: I am not even thinking about it", Haley said. She is a quick study.

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

"Heather Nauert is not going to be a big-time player in the deliberations on substance in the administration", he said. The first ambassador to the U.N.to serve in a presidential Cabinet was actually Henry Cabot Lodge Jr., under Eisenhower.

This development became all but certain earlier in the week. The more treaties we sign, the safer we supposedly are. "The more bureaucrats we have, the better the job gets done".

Trump's nominee to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert. Translation: The UN job will give her lots of media exposure, but when the president sees her face on "all the shows", he won't feel threatened.

Democratic senators likely will resist her nomination, but lack the votes to block it. Nauert won't be going to NY to shape America's foreign policy.

Schaefer notes, though, that Trump already has a team in place that he relies on for help in crafting foreign policy -Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.
