Nauert, a former Fox News host with no foreign policy experience, has something in common with many of her peers in the Trump administration: a history of spreading anti-Muslim and Islamophobic comments.

At the same time, he officially announced that State Department spokeswoman and former Fox News journalist Heather Nauert was his pick to replace Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations.

Plucked from Fox by the White House to serve as State Department spokeswoman, Nauert catapulted into the upper echelons of the agency's hierarchy when Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was sacked in March and replaced with Mike Pompeo.

Under Pompeo, whose foreign policy views more closely align with Trump's than Tillerson's, Nauert became part of the inner circle.

Rumors have swirled about her nomination since early November after current ambassador Nikki Haley resigned on good terms with U.S. President Donald Trump.

Because of her work at the State Department, Nauert would have the advantage of already knowing the Trump administration's position on all major global issues.

Yet she faced some criticism for a tourist-like Instagram post from Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on a trip that was meant to focus on the killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. "I would say, you know, 'I don't know what he's gonna do'". Now, Haley, who was formerly the governor of SC, may have a replacement. Trump called Barr a "terrific man" and said that he was "my first choice since day one".

The President announced Friday he would nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace Haley.

"Pompeo's Brussels speech trashing the United Nations this week lowered our expectations for USA policy at the United Nations, whoever is ambassador", Gowan said.

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

She was a popular anchor on the Fox News show Fox and Friends, which Mr Trump was said to watch. Even more so if the skill is coupled with a wide, snow-white smile, precisely like Nauert's.

"I don't think Haley is thinking about running in 2020".

The U.N. has had several female ambassadors from the U.S. The post is not always a Cabinet-level position.

She also would arrive at a time when Trump and members of his foreign policy team have all displayed sometimes open contempt for the United Nations and its affiliated agencies.

She will face a variety of challenges if confirmed for the job, including championing USA efforts to contain Iran's influence in the Middle East and ensuring the global body maintains tough sanctions on North Korea as Washington tries to negotiate an end to Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programmes. "Haley has done representing your administration and the American people".
