President Trump is set to nominate State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert to become the next U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, a senior administration official said Thursday.
She has served under two secretaries of state - Rex Tillerson and her current boss Mike Pompeo, but prior to that had little foreign policy experience.
Experience matters less to the President, an avid fan of Fox News, than Nauert's loyalty to the White House, the fact that she's a woman and her ability to be a polished proxy on television, according to sources familiar with his thinking.
The administration has also worked through the United Nations to try to find a political solution to the wars in Syria and Yemen, two issues that will confront Nauert. Officials at the White House at times viewed Haley with skepticism, in part over her willingness to publicly disagree with the president. Nauert would need to be confirmed by the Senate before taking up the role.
