Trump to Nominate Heather Nauert As United Nations Ambassador

Do you support Nauert for UN Ambassador?

by Countable | Updated on 12.7.18

President Donald Trump said today that he is nominating State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations.

Nauert was a Fox News anchor and correspondent until 2017, when she joined the administration as the State Department spokesperson. It was her first government position, and Nauert had no previous foreign policy experience.

In April 2018, Nauert voiced support for Saudi Arabian-led intervention in Yemen, which is currently the source of controversy as tens of thousands of Yemenis risk starvation in the ensuing humanitarian crisis.

In July 2018, Nauert sustained criticism from some observers when she cited the Invasion of Normandy as evidence of a strong relationship between the U.S. and Germany on the anniversary of the D-Day invasion.

According to Business Insider:

"Some foreign policy experts and former State Department officials argue Nauert is ill-prepared to lead US efforts to thwart ISIS propaganda and Russian disinformation, guide state-run media on the Broadcasting Board of Governors, and oversee some 275 US embassies and consulates around the world."

Nauert has "had the strong support" of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, according to Bloomberg.

The Senate has yet to confirm the nomination.

    Another person who has NO qualifications nor diplomatic experience. Trump saw her on TV and said, “Let’s hire her.” Only the BEST people. This administration can’t come to a conclusion soon enough.

    When someone uses Dday as an example of our close relationship with Germany, that is about as stupid as it gets. Now this person is our UN ambassador. What a joke! Let's let Dr Candyman head the VA. Let's let Mr. No Recession in 2008 be the lead econ advisor. Yes men/women are frequently not the kind of people who are actually effective.

    I wouldn’t want a liberal appointing Rachel Maddow or Chris Hayes so I don’t want trump appointing her or any other Fox News media hosts to positions in the government.

    With being qualified for a major foreign policy post no longer necessary our laughing stock rises to new levels never seen before. (At least some stock is going up these days)

    Anyone opposed to Heather Nauert is a woman hating, misogynistic ass. If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is qualified to be in the House of Representatives? Then Heather Nauert is more than qualified for this promotion.

    She has virtually no foreign relations experience, and the little that she does have is insignificant and, if anything, a net negative for the position. She should be removed immediately. This is going to spark an outrage, as it blatantly shows the hypocrisy, corruption, and the “spoils system” type of administration that Trump is running. This needs to be stopped for the good of the Republican Party, the United States, and the planet. We can’t continue to set this example of political collusion and advantage. (FYI, I’m an adamant Republican that doesn’t want the party to become a laughingstock or an image of corruption.)

    If the white house is going to be run by losers from fox news who have zero experience/intellect/knowledge/education in respective fields and simply because they kiss up to ‘dear leader’ then we have transformed into a tin pot dictatorship! Thanks gop / maga morons / evangelicals / ‘conservatives’ / nationalists. If you think 2018 brought some changes 2020 not far away!

    We don’t need another tv personality to do our country’s business. Congress do your job.

    Only 45 could be stupid enough to nominate this person. This is an important post. Get serious.

    Personally, I would nominate Stephan Colbert. We could laugh with him not at him.

    If she was a journalist she might have not have been a bad pick. Sadly she's no more than the rest of her supporters, an opinionist with no education in global issues. Just another joke as Trump could care less about being apart of the international community.

    If it weren’t so dangerous and foolish, the propensity of #45 to install TV personalities in offices of great import to the United States in the planet would be funny. With global warming a looming catastrophe and with human rights violations proliferating across the planet, her appointment is unconscionable.
