President Trump officially tapped State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, ending weeks of speculation about Nikki Haley’s replacement.

The U.N. post represents a significant promotion for Nauert, who since April 2017 has served as the State Department’s chief spokesperson. 

“Heather Nauert will be nominated for the ambassador to the United Nations,” Trump said on Friday.

As U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Nauert will be a key figure in promoting and defending the Trump administration’s foreign policy on the international stage.


Nauert was brought on under Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and currently serves under his predecessor, Mike Pompeo. Before that, Nauert was an anchor for Fox News.
