On October 9, the shocking news was reported that UN Ambassador Nikki Haley has decided to resign from her prestigious position. According to reports, Haley turned in her resignation directly to President Trump.
Haley confirmed that she had told President Trump around six months prior that she was considering taking a break at the start of the new year. Upon the official announcement of her resignation, President Trump said that he would love to have her come back and serve in the Administration if she ever wanted to again.
Many people were upset to hear that Haley was leaving, as she had made an impressive mark as the UN Ambassador. Beyond that, many were wondering who her potential replacement could be.
Now, the replacement has been chosen. On Thursday, the news was released that President Trump would be appointing 48-year-old Heather Nauert to the position. Nauert is a former Fox News anchor and is currently the State Department's spokeswoman.
According to USA Today, Nauert has served as the State Department’s chief spokeswoman for the last year and a half. During that time, she earned the trust of President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
Many have already criticized Trump’s choice, noting that Nauert has less experience on her resume than previous candidates for the position. However, the White House aides noted that she has strong communication skills and a “fluency with the Trump White House,” Bloomberg reported.
