Ex-Fox News anchor to be new U.S. ambassador to the UN

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert speaks at a briefing in August 2017. President Trump is expected to nominate Nauert to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations

President Donald Trump named State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as the ambassador to the United Nations on Friday.

"In that regard, probably they're not too upset to see Nikki Haley go because Haley was pretty independent compared to what we're likely to see from Nauert". It's more a matter of the personal clout of the person holding the position, vis-à-vis the nominal figures directing US foreign policy like the secretary of State and the president's national security adviser - the two people Jonathan Swan cites as insisting on Nauert's non-Cabinet rank.

He added that colleagues described Nauert as a quick learner who "executed her functions capably".

"She told counterparts: "'I can't stop [President Trump], I'm not gonna be able to control him, we've gotta get this done.'...

If she gets the job, Nauert would take the post with less clout than Haley, a former SC governor who announced in October that she would step down at the end of this year.

Nauert was a Fox News anchor who was then hired by Trump to be the State Department spokeswoman.

Nauert was a breaking news anchor on Trump's favorite television show, "Fox & Friends", when she was tapped to be the face and voice of the administration's foreign policy.

Yemen peace talks to start December 6 in Sweden
The Houthis had required the travel before their delegation leaving for Sweden to participate in the peace talks. Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif expressed his support for the talks in a tweet on Monday.

Nauert covered domestic and worldwide stories as an ABC News correspondent from 2005 to 2007 prior to joining Fox.

"If I were the State Department's spokesperson, on an official trip to learn more about the dark, dubious circumstances surrounding the disappearance of a U.S. resident, I probably would have skipped the tourist-in-Riyadh photos. Heather plays a key role in advancing US foreign policy & I look forward to her speedy confirmation".

After her appointment as acting undersecretary, she was for a time the highest-ranking woman and fourth highest-ranking official at State. With Mike Pompeo in charge of State, Nauert has been on the road much more. The former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations once said that if you lopped off the top 10 floors of the organisation's NY headquarters, it would make no difference.

"I worry that we will grow ever more isolated on this, the most important of world stages", he said.

Both Trump and Pompeo have been highly critical of the United Nations and other multilateral institutions, with Pompeo noting in a Brussels speech earlier this week that "multilateralism has become viewed as an end unto itself". The more treaties we sign, the safer we supposedly are.
