Trump expected to pick State spokeswoman for United Nations ambassador

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

President Donald Trump is expected to nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations.

Haley has held the post since the beginning of Trump's administration and said she would stay in the job through the end of the year.

Nauert, who earlier this year had been considered a possible successor to White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, gained experience on diplomacy by working at the State Department, but she lacks the political and policy credentials of Haley, a former SC governor.

A Republican congressional aide said the president was expected to announce his decision by tweet on Friday morning. Nauert would need to be confirmed by the Senate before taking up the role.

Nauert would replace current ambassador Nikki Haley, who plans to leave her post at the end of the year, according to Bloomberg News.

Nikki Haley has been a very popular figure among conservatives for her tough attitude against anti-American attitudes at the United Nations.

While the senator acknowledged that Nauert does have State Department experience, he pointed out that "she has no experience as a diplomat", also arguing that she beings to the table "no meaningful experience in the government".

The announcement would come hours after a resolution championed by Haley condemning the Hamas terror group failed to pass in the General Assembly.

Israeli leaders nonetheless thanked her and feted the results as proof of wide support for Israel's position.

"Makes us wonder what does the president mean when he says 'only the best?'"

Other candidates considered for the job, according to Bloomberg, were former White House adviser Dina Powell, ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft and ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell.

"There's no personal reason", she said of her departure.
