President Trump has a top choice to replace Nikki Haley as UN ambassador and you can almost hear the left howl. What would be the left’s worst nightmare pick?
To be fair any Trump pick would set them off but picking a former Fox News host would really get them going. And that is what Trump is reportedly set to do. The left hates Fox and calls it “state Tv” so this will drive them up a wall. From CNN:
President Donald Trump has told advisers that Heather Nauert, the State Department spokeswoman, is his leading choice to become US ambassador to the United Nations and he could offer the post as soon as this week, two sources familiar with his pick told CNN.
If named Nauert, who met with Trump Monday, would leave her role at the State Department to take over from Nikki Haley, who surprised White House officials last month when she announced her decision to step down at the end of the year.
People close to the President cautioned that his pick is not final until it is formally announced.
The White House declined to comment on the matter. Nauert has been keeping a low profile this week after meeting with Trump on Monday. Two of her daily briefings have been conducted by her deputy.
Heather reportedly earned Trump’s trust and loyalty when she famously stuck by him and not Rex Tillerson when the two men had issues and Trump decided to make the change to Mike Pompeo.
Both Trump and Heather have a much better relationship with Pompeo than they ever did with Tillerson – it is still a mystery why Trump picked Rex Tillerson as he famously values past history and loyalty – in other words, Trump needs to know you for a while before he can trust you and that make him like all of us.
