Trump says he wants Nauert as next UN ambassador

Heather Nauert a former anchor and correspondent at Fox News Channel joined the State Department as spokeswoman in April 2017

Danon also paid tribute to Haley, who made tackling United Nations bias against Israel a key priority during her tenure.

If confirmed, Nauert, a former Fox News anchor who has served as the public face of the State Department since a year ago, would be one of the most prominent promoters of Trump's "America First" foreign policy.

Trump told reporters last month the former Fox News anchor was "under very serious consideration". She now serves as the acting under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs.

Without elaborating on the topics, she added, "For the most part he's been very willing to listen and very willing to come around".

Nauert joined the State Department in April 2017.

According to reports, news of the potential appointment of an establishment Republican had been well received by some Democrats and Republicans, but the confirmation process is nevertheless likely to be tough.

In this 2017 photo, State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department in Washington.

Nauert thanked Trump and said she was humbled at being chosen.

Here are the top facts that could provide an exhaustive look at the USA president's pick for the top United Nations role, largely seen as a stepping stone to assuming more senior roles in government. I think about sleeping in. I do. She will learn the brief.

Whoever wins will be favourite to run for chancellor in the next election, though that isn't automatic. At present, the center-right bloc is polling around or below 30 percent.

It is not yet clear who would take over her role as State Department Spokesperson.

"Heather Nauert is not going to be a big-time player in the deliberations on substance in the administration", he said.

"On another level, it's easily explained by Trump's fascination with American cable news, and in particular with Fox Cable News Network", the former Washington Bureau Chief for the Chicago Tribune said.

The U.S. would have "totally" gone to war with North Korea if it had "launched something" when tensions between the two countries reached the boiling point a year ago, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has revealed.

Critics have said that while Ms. Nauert may have significant journalism credentials, she lacks foreign policy or other equivalent experience required for the United Nations job.

While Nauert must still be confirmed by the US Senate, Benjamin said she will easily get the approval of the Republican-controlled chamber.

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.

"I did not know him until recently when I went through the process of looking at people", Mr. Trump said. "Ambassador Haley was a far more high-level figure, particularly early in the administration".
