President Donald Trump will nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as US ambassador to the United Nations, a source familiar with his decision said on Thursday, tapping someone with no prior policy or political experience to deal with some of the world's thorniest issues.
The state department has made no comment.
She worked under two secretaries of state, Rex Tillerson and current boss Mike Pompeo, and was designated acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs from March to October 2018. Trump is expected to announce the nomination on Friday.
In 2017, Veteran Fox News correspondent and anchor Heather Nauert was named as the Trump administration's new lead foreign policy spokesperson.
Trump told reporters last month that Nauert was "excellent", adding, "She's been a supporter for a long time". If Nauert is confirmed by the Senate, she would be a leading administration voice on Trump's foreign policy.
She would be taking the position amid a roster of thorny global challenges, ranging from North Korea's nuclear program to Yemen's starvation and the growing divide between the U.S. and its closest allies over the Iran nuclear deal, climate change and other issues. President Donald Trump is expected to nominate Nauert to be the next US ambassador to the United Nations.
Trump is reportedly weighing other staff changes before the end of the year, including replacing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.
"She is clearly not qualified for this job, but these days it seems that the most important qualification is that you show up on Donald Trump's TV screen, and if you're successful in that endeavor, then you seem to be a top candidate to get a whole bunch of top positions in the US government". Trump met Ms Nauert in the Oval Office on Monday, but a job offer has not been officially confirmed.
She has been the front runner for the United Nations post for some weeks and last month President Trump said she was under "under very serious consideration".
