Donald Trump Nominates Former News Anchor Heather Nauert As UN Envoy

"Let's remember in large part what has gotten the Israelis and Palestinians to this point, and that is Hamas", she said at a state department briefing last month.

As a New York-based anchor and correspondent at the Fox News Channel, Nauert oversaw breaking news, anchored programs, covered global and domestic crises and interviewed senior elected and military officials. Here are three takeaways from Nauert's nomination. But former President George W. Bush did not include the position in his Cabinet. "Heather plays a key role in advancing US foreign policy & I look forward to her speedy confirmation".

Nauert, a native of Rockford, Illinois, also worked at State as the acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.

Schaefer notes, though, that Trump already has a team in place that he relies on for help in crafting foreign policy -Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

Maybe the new ambassador will eventually become a rock star beyond the ranks of Fox News viewers and enhance her own power, so long as she doesn't undercut the ultimate Boss.

"Our foreign policy is a mess and the president was laughed at through his last speech to the UN", Senate Foreign Relations member Christopher S. Murphy, D-Conn., told CNN. She is clearly not qualified for this job.

Nauert, a former Fox News host, has seen a meteoric rise in the Trump administration, but that apparently does not equal Cabinet rank.

But Bruen, who now heads the Global Situation Room consulting firm, questioned whether Nauert was the best pick when "American influence on the world stage is at a historic low". He too was a former United States ambassador to the UN - and caught Trump´s eye as a commentator on Fox News.

Much of the initial reaction to Nauert's appointment concerned itself with her extremely limited foreign policy background, and the possibility that her main credential was her experience as anchor on Trump's very favorite television show, Fox & Friends. Haley was also a diplomatic novice - though she did arrive in NY with the six years experience of running SC as governor. "He brings a level of stability and knowledge to the Justice Department that I think will be very powerful". "She needs to go make some money to pay down some debts", one GOP strategist recently told Roll Call. She is a strong Trump supporter.

Heritage Foundation fellow Brett Schaefer said Nauert has proven she has the ability to explain and defend USA foreign policy, the core requirement for being a US ambassador to the world body.
