U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert next U.N. ambassador

The Trump administration seeking to advance “America First” agenda plans to nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert, former news reporter for ABC and anchor and correspondent at Fox News, as the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Her responsibilities would be maintaining international support for the United States in its policies and support for Israel at the United Nations. Nauert became part of the inner circle at Washington as she was considered a White House loyalist with close ties to Ivanka Trump and other high political figures.
