On Thursday, Nov. 1, President Donald Trump announced that Heather Nauert is “under very serious consideration” to become the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. Nauert had a meeting on Monday, Oct. 29 with Trump, and since the meeting she has maintained a low profile. According to CNN, Nauert has had two of her daily briefings conducted by her deputy. Even though the White House has refused to comment – and the President’s pick is not final until it’s formally announced – Trump praised Nauert in a White House meeting, stating, “She’s excellent. She’s been with us a long time. She’s been a supporter for a long time. And she’s really excellent.”

Who is Heather Nauert? And why is she an excellent candidate for the position?

Heather Nauert served as the State Department spokeswoman for both Rex Tillerson and Mike Pompeo. She worked as a television newscaster for Fox News prior to becoming a government official. Before Tillerson was dismissed from his position, he divulged that Nauert had close ties with the White House and remained more loyal to the President than the State Department. According to CNN, this loyalty and willingness to defend the president can be seen as a valuable asset in the Trump administration.

CNN reports that Nauert has significantly less experience than the other candidates, Ric Grennell (U.S. ambassador to Germany), Jamie McCourt (U.S. envoy in Paris), and Kelly Craft (U.S. ambassador in Canada). Her foreign policy is limited to her seven-month position as Undersecretary for Public Diplomacy, whereas the other candidates have had many more years of experience. Although the position is based in New York and therefore has less oversight than a higher-level position based in Washington, the U.N. ambassador role is seen as a launching point for higher-profile positions.

If Heather Nauert were to be selected for U.N. ambassador, she would be replacing the current U.N. ambassador, Nikki Haley. In early October, Nikki Haley announced that she would be leaving her position at the end of the year, shocking many members of the White House. Real Clear Politics reports that there is quite a bit of conjecture on the reasons why she is leaving. From needing a higher-paying job to put her two children through college to leaving to protect her own political future.

Nikki Haley is not the only resignation in the White House and the roles have not been easy to fill. CNN reports that Nauert was originally seen as the front-runner to replace Sarah Sanders as White House Press Secretary, but as U.N. ambassador, she could not take any other White House positions. Is Nauert ready for this position? Read the full story from CNN here.
