State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert Being Considered As Haley Replacement At U.N.
POLITICO: State Department spokeswoman Nauert in the mix for U.N. ambassador
“…Among the candidates President Donald Trump is considering [to replace outgoing U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley], according to three people close to the president: former Fox News host Heather Nauert, who currently serves as the State Department’s spokeswoman and acting Under Secretary for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs. … Neither Nauert nor the White House replied to a request for comment. But White House officials stressed that the process for selecting Haley’s replacement is still in the early stages and that the pool of candidates, which includes ambassadors Kelly Knight Craft, Jamie McCourt, and Ric Grenell — Trump’s envoys to Canada, France, and Germany, respectively — will likely change before the president makes a final selection…” (Johnson, 10/16).
