Trump to name Heather Nauert as United Nations ambassador tomorrow, reports say

Donald Trump has chose to name the state department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as the ambassador to the United Nations, a source familiar with his decision told Reuters. Chris Murphy (D-CT) bashed Nauert as lacking in expertise, believing her to be the wrong choice for President Donald Trump's administration. Nauert, 48, worked as a Fox News host prior to her role in the State Department.

The decision could be announced as early as Friday, the source said, requesting anonymity.

Nauert will probably be pressed on her qualifications by Senate Democrats and could face a contentious confirmation hearing, but needs only a simple majority vote to be elevated to the role.

Nauert's foreign policy experience is limited to her year-and-a-half tenure as State Department Spokesperson, plus half a year as the Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, plus one-episode cameo in Fox's foreign-policy drama "24" which is all about global diplomatic crises.

She is also seen as close to Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, senior White House adviser Jared Kushner.

Pujara was the last man to be dismissed on the second last ball with Pat Cummins' coming up with a direct throw. Earlier, India won the toss and opted to bat first.

If confirmed, Nauert, 48, would succeed Nikki Haley, who said in October she would be leaving the United Nations post at the end of the year.

Israeli leaders nonetheless thanked her and feted the results as proof of wide support for Israel's position.

President Trump said she had done "an incredible job".

Ahead of the vote, the U.S. ambassador sent a letter to all UN missions to make clear that "the United States takes the outcome of this vote very seriously".

Following the vote, Nauert retweeted a comment by U.S. special envoy Jason Greenblatt condemning the world body's inability to pass the measure, but did not publicly comment herself.
