  • Trump to name Heather Nauert as next U.S. ambassador to the U.N.

Following the resignation of U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, reports indicate that U.S. President Donald Trump will nominate State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert as her replacement.

She became the State Department's spokeswoman in April 2017 and was named earlier this year as the acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.

Nonetheless, during her two-year stint, Haley became a darling of the Trump administration and the pro-Israel community for her vociferous defense of the Jewish state at the United Nations, a body often seen as hostile to Israel. She would assume the position at a time when the United Nations is dealing with such issues as the North Korea nuclear deal, the ongoing war and humanitarian crisis in Yemen, and climate change. Chris Murphy (D-CT) bashed Nauert as lacking in expertise, believing her to be the wrong choice for President Donald Trump's administration.

A loss to Wolves could be good for Chelsea players who have "too much confidence", according to Maurizio Sarri . Sarri also conceded City are out of sight with his side battling for a Champions League spot.

That means Nauert would wield less clout than her predecessor, both at the United Nations and within the administration, and as a result, would pose nowhere near the challenge to national security adviser John Bolton, White House chief of staff John Kelly or Pompeo.

If her appointment is confirmed she will replace Ms Haley, who had held the role since November 2016.

Haley similarly had little foreign policy experience when appointed, although she had a national name as the governor of SC.

People are losing their minds because Michelle Obama said ‘sh
Specifically, she takes issue with the idea that women can (and often are expected to) "have it all". That's a lie , and it's not always enough to lean in, because that shit doesn't work all the time".

Trump told reporters last month the former Fox News anchor was "under very serious consideration".

Shut out from the top by Tillerson and his inner circle, Nauert developed relationships with career diplomats.

The Supreme Court also issued a statement saying Chief Justice John Roberts ordered the building closed for the day of mourning. Said her friend Sue Miller, also in line for the viewing: "I actually think I underestimated him when he was in office".

Israeli leaders nonetheless thanked her and feted the results as proof of wide support for Israel's position. "What we've really discovered over the last two years is that even when you have a relatively mainstream, relatively collegial, relatively influential ambassador to the United Nations like Haley, that only buys you a limited degree of protection from a president like Trump".
