Trump Picks Former 'FOX & Friends' Correspondent Heather Nauert as UN Ambassador

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing last year. President Trump announced Friday that Nauert is his choice as the next ambassador to the United Nations

"Those I know who work with her remark frequently that she is more open than most Trump appointees to listening to and working with career diplomats", said Brett Bruen, who served as White House director of global engagement under former president Barack Obama.

Trump announced Friday that he plans to nominate William Barr, the George H.W. Bush-era leader of the Justice Department, as his next attorney general, as well as State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to succeed outgoing U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley.

The president, who puts a premium on loyalty, earlier hailed Nauert as "a supporter for a long time - really, excellent".

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.

Nauert assumed the new high-profile role after holding just one position in government, that of State Department spokesperson, which she held from late April 2017 until now, but this was apparently more than outweighed by her extensive journalistic experience.

If confirmed, Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who is leaving the post at the end of the year.

Bolton, a former United Nations ambassador under President George W Bush, is especially well-known for his hostile stance towards the worldwide body. She had also previously acted in two American television series - Brother's Keeper and 24.

‘Dauntless’ Confirmed For Consoles, Coming In 2019
Following the announcement and trailer for Dauntless at The Game Awards 2018, some fresh details have landed. Dauntless is now in open beta on PC and Phoenix Labs has confirmed that the game will continually evolve.

"Let's remember in large part what has gotten the Israelis and Palestinians to this point, and that is Hamas", she said at a state department briefing last month.

She was a reporter for Fox News Channel before she became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson. "Haley had a lot of autonomy, with Tillerson largely absent, she had the ambition and leeway to drive USA policy".

According to CAIR, while at Fox News, Nauert interviewed "notorious Islamophobes", including Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish.

"When you talk about Germany, we have a very strong relationship with the government of Germany", Nauert said, adding: "Tomorrow is the anniversary of the D-day invasion".

Unlike Haley, however, Nauert is not expected to have cabinet status, keeping power over foreign policy firmly with Pompeo and especially John Bolton, the hawkish White House national security advisor. "For Nauert it is going to be more about implementing than developing policies". "She's very talented, very smart, very quick. I am not even thinking about it", she said. 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.

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