Heather Nauert Doesn’t Have the Clout to Be in Trump’s Cabinet

Heather Nauert speaking in the press briefing room at the State Department

"She's [Nauert is] going to work with Nikki Haley to replace Nikki at the United Nations".

Haley told The Weekly Standard she would remain in NY for the next two years so her son could finish high school there, and she wanted to remain an active voice on foreign policy. "You know what I think about?"

Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who is resigning at the end of the year.

Nauert was a Fox News anchor who was then hired by Trump to be the State Department spokeswoman. "Many of our students choose a path of service to others, so we are thrilled to have played a part in Heather Nauert's impressive career and wish her success in her new role", Zinnar-Shavit said in an e-mail.

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

Nauert had worked for Fox News from 1998 to 2005 before joining ABC.

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 Tillerson was sacked in March and replaced with Mike Pompeo. If her much more recent experience at the State Department provides such rich fodder for critics, it portends a hard confirmation process ahead.

Oklahoma QB Kyler Murray is named the AP Player of the Year
Murray's strong 2018 campaign has drawn comparisons to 2017 Heisman Trophy victor and former Oklahoma starter Baker Mayfield . Oklahoma's junior quarterback threw for 40 touchdowns and 4,053 yards this season, while rushing for 892 yards and 11 scores.

She was in charge of the Global Engagement Centre that fights extremist messaging from the Islamic State group and others, and she has a seat on the US Agency for Global Media that oversees government broadcast networks such as Voice of America. "She is a fine and capable person", Graham said, adding that she had the confidence of Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Bolton, a former United Nations ambassador under President George W Bush, is especially well-known for his hostile stance towards the worldwide body.

"I worry that we will grow ever more isolated on this, the most important of world stages", he said. She is a quick study.

"But, I think it [the USA ambassador job] is not going to be what it was under Nikki Haley, which was a serious competitor under a vacuum at the NSC [National Security Council] and at the State Department under [former Secretary of State Rex] Tillerson".

In her first interview since resigning as the USA representative at the U.N. in October, Haley addressed the heated war of words between the two nations in the summer and fall of 2017.

This development became all but certain earlier in the week.

However, Haley admitted she and the president "agree on most things", but "there are certainly things that we don't agree on".
