Who is Heather Nauert? The new United Nations ambassador with little experience

State Department Spokesperson Heather Nauert speaks during a briefing at the State Department

Mazie Hirono (D-HI) reacted to the report President Donald Trump has his eyes on former Attorney General William Barr to serve again as attorney general and State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to serve as United Nations ambassador to replace outgoing Nikki Haley.

If confirmed, the former Fox News Channel reporter who has little foreign policy experience would replace Nikki Haley, a former SC governor who said she was stepping down at the end of the year.

"While I'm not denying her credentials or abilities to hold this new position I will say that sexual harassment is about to become an even bigger issue in the White House", Nathaniel Berman wrote in an op-ed for TV Over Mind.

She will take over from Nikki Haley who announced her resignation in October. The role of ambassador to the United Nations does not always have Cabinet level.

"We guide all of our students to find their passion and set out to achieve their personal and professional goals".

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

She was a reporter for Fox News Channel before she became State Department spokeswoman under former secretary Rex Tillerson.

Nauert's confirmation could hinge on her performance at the hearing.

The Washinton Post also quoted former state department official Brett Bruen as saying, "While Haley didn't bring foreign policy experience, she ran a state".

He said she lacks experience and that her loyalty to Trump and experience as an anchor on his favorite cable news network are insufficient qualifications.

After her appointment as acting undersecretary, she was for a time the highest-ranking woman and fourth highest-ranking official at State.

While Nauert will be a leading administration voice on Trump's foreign policy, a White House official told The Associated Press that her post would be a non-Cabinet position. She now serves as the acting under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs. "Ambassador Haley was a far more high-level figure, particularly early in the administration".

At the time, the tensions sparked fears the back-and-forth could trigger a war with North Korea after it tested missiles and nuclear weapons that it claimed could hit the U.S. However, Haley claimed Trump's rhetoric boosted her negotiating power at the United Nations and enabled her to pass three Security Council strict sanctions against North Korea. "She's very talented, very smart, very quick". She is a graduate of the Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism and Mount Vernon College in Washington.
