Trump expected to nominate Heather Nauert as new ambassador to UN

Washington: The United States President Donald Trump is expected to nominate the current State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as the next ambassador to the United Nations.

Nauret will replace the current US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.

CNN quoted administration officials stating that the nomination of Nauert by the US President would lead to a less experienced person holding an office at the international organisation and influence less power in comparison to Haley.

The national security team of the US President is also expected to witness a reshuffle in the power dynamics.

Sources also reported to CNN that the former Fox News host had to struggle a lot during the tenure of former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, so much so that she at one point even considered quitting her office. But during Pompeo’s tenure, she availed opportunities to go on official trips, unlike under Tillerson who blocked her from doing so.

Earlier in October, Trump had announced that Haley has resigned and will leave her post by the end of the year.
