President Trump will tweet Friday morning that he nominates the spokeswoman Speaker Heather Nauert to be United States ambassador to the UN, replacing outgoing official Nikki Haley, says several sources of Fox News.
In October, Nauert, a former Fox News host resumed, believed to be a “leading contender” for the position, sources familiar with the selection process said at that time.
Haley unexpectedly announced her resignation in October and promised to serve in her role by the end of 2018. At that time, she described her time in the position as a “blessing” but offered no reason to leave, except for the belief that the Heads of Government must know “when it’s time to get away.”
In her letter of departure, she also despaired the opportunity to run in the elections of 2020.
“I expect to continue to speak on time from time to time about important public issues, but I will certainly not be a candidate for any office year 2020 “she wrote. “As a private citizen, I look forward to supporting your re-election as president and supporting the policy measures that will continue to move our big country to even higher heights.”
