But after a year and a half explaining State Department positions, Nauert now has more foreign policy experience than Haley did when she became the USA ambassador to the United Nations.
President Donald Trump will nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as USA ambassador to the United Nations, two White House officials said yesterday, tapping someone with no prior policy or political experience to deal with some of the world's thorniest issues. If Nauert is confirmed by the Senate, she would be a leading administration voice on Trump's foreign policy.
"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.

As of August 2018, researchers said North Korea is continuing to construct an extremely large underground facility. On Saturday, he told reporters that his next meeting with Kim was likely to happen in January or February.
Nauert, 48, rose to fame at the time the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal threatened to bring down Bill Clinton's presidency, joining Fox News as one of a chorus of presidential critics.
She will have to be confirmed by the Senate to become ambassador to the United Nations. The officials were not authorized to speak publicly before Trump's announcement.
She also faced criticism for using D-Day as an example of the strong relationship between the United States and Germany.
He added that colleagues described Nauert as a quick learner who "executed her functions capably". "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.
According to CAIR, while at Fox News, Nauert interviewed "notorious Islamophobes", including Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish. "So on that level, Nauert's pick is notable", he told Al Jazeera.
Trump has long praised Fox News, especially the "Fox & Friends" program.
"I did not know him until recently when I went through the process of looking at people", Mr. Trump said.
If she accepts the position, she could likely face tough questioning during her Senate confirmation hearings about her apparent lack of diplomatic or policymaking experience.
The Senate overwhelmingly voted last week to move forward on a resolution curtailing USA backing for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Graham is quick to defend Pompeo and Mattis, calling them "good soldiers" in his statement, but he throws Trump under the bus.
