Israel Welcomes Trump’s Nomination of US Envoy to UN

The United States President Donald Trump announced, on Friday, that he is nominating State Department spokesperson and former Fox News Channel anchor, Heather Nauert, to be the US Ambassador to the United Nations.

The outgoing US envoy, Nikki Haley, had announced her resignation in October and that she would step down from the UN post at the end of this year.

Nauert, whose nomination would require the Senate’s approval, became the State Department’s spokesperson in April 2017 and was named the acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs in 2018.

She would take the position with no prior policy-making or political experience.
