There It Is: Trump Makes His Pick to Replace Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador

President Trump has apparently revealed who he’d like to see replace Nikki Haley as ambassador to the United Nations.

Here’s the scoop…

From Fox News:

President Trump has offered State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert the role of U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, a senior administration official told Fox News.

It is not clear yet is whether she has accepted the offer to replace the outgoing Nikki Haley as ambassador.

The White House would only say Thursday that Nauert “is under strong consideration.”

Nauert met with Trump in the Oval Office on Monday. Several other officials have been named as potential candidates, including U.S. Ambassador to France Jamie McCourt.

GOP Congressmen have another idea for the UN.

How about no ambassador is assigned to the post and America cuts all funding entirely?

From Twitchy:

It’s called the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2017 and would repeal the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, close the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, and cut all funding.

Obviously, the legislation introduced by Rep. Mike Rogers of Alabama hasn’t gone anywhere, but it has picked up nine co-sponsors in Congress, all of them Republicans. And with Nikki Haley resigning from her position as U.N. Ambassador, what better time to shut the whole thing down?

What are your thoughts about Nauert?
