Senate Confirmation Hearing Date Not Set Nearly 2 Months Since Announcement Of Trump’s Intent To Nominate Heather Nauert As U.S. Ambassador To U.N.
CNN: After nearly 2 months there’s no sign of urgency to confirm Trump’s U.N. pick
“It was early December when President Donald Trump announced he had selected State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Almost two months later her nomination has not been made official, no date has been set for a Senate confirmation hearing, and Nauert has retreated from the public gaze. There is no tangible growing opposition to her appointment among Republicans, but there seems to be no urgency from the White House and GOP members of Congress to get her into the job…” (Atwood, 1/29).
