Nauert is now the spokesperson for the State Department, but before her stint there in 2017, she rose to prominence through her role at Fox News as a host of "Fox & Friends".
In an administration rife with internal conflict and deeply distrustful of the UN, Nauert's nomination would place a less senior person at the global agency than Haley, who reportedly sparred with other administration officials. Before joining the State Department, Nauert did not have any previous government or diplomatic experience.
Nauert will face a full plate at the United Nations, with Iran and North Korea and other issues dominating the US agenda there.
The president described Heather Nauert as "very talented, very smart, very quick", adding: "I think she's going to be respected by all".
Haley told The Weekly Standard she would remain in NY for the next two years so her son could finish high school there, and she wanted to remain an active voice on foreign policy.
Nauert will arrive at the United Nations at a time when the Trump's administration's attitude to the organisation, always sceptical, is turning disdainful following the arrival of Bolton in the White House in March. "But, I think it [the USA ambassador job] is not going to be what it was under Nikki Haley, which was a serious competitor under a vacuum at the NSC [National Security Council] and at the State Department under [former Secretary of State Rex] Tillerson".
She would also pick up the baton amid a U.S. retrenchment from the world body, with Washington pulling out of different agencies and cutting or reducing funding for others. In turn, these played a role in weakening North Korea's weapons program, and persuading Kim Jong Un to take part in negotiations, she said.
Why Huawei arrest deepens conflict between US and China
But the timing of the arrest tangles the issues as it came just as Presidents Trump and Xi reached a temporary trade war truce. Huawei has said it complies with all applicable export control and sanctions laws and USA and other regulations.
UN diplomats said privately they hoped that Nauert will be an advocate for the United Nations within the Trump administration, to counter the anti-UN views of national security adviser John Bolton. The former South Carolina GOP governor used her Oval Office announcement - sitting alongside POTUS to assure reporters she is not stepping aside to prepare a 2020 presidential bid. The more treaties we sign, the safer we supposedly are.
At the time, Trump, alongside Haley, said in a meeting with reporters,"She's done a fantastic job, and we've done a fantastic job together".
Trump's nominee to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations, Heather Nauert.
She hadn't specialized in foreign policy or worldwide relations. That means Nauert could be overshadowed by Pompeo or Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, who had the United Nations job in 2005 and 2006.
