Who is Heather Nauert? The new United Nations ambassador with little experience

"You know what I think about?"

On the other hand, while mostly toeing the administration's line at the state department lectern, she has spoken out strongly in support of journalism, at a time the president has referred to the press as the "enemy of the people", and called for accountability for the massacre of Rohingya civilians by Burmese forces while the administration dithered over whether to call the mass killings a genocide.

According to CAIR, while at Fox News, Nauert interviewed "notorious Islamophobes", including Robert Spencer, Frank Gaffney and Nonie Darwish.

"I think that he will be confirmed readily by the Senate", Gingrich said.

"Bringing Nauert aboard in a sub-Cabinet role will diminish the position yet further", said Pomper, who worked at the National Security Council under former President Barack Obama. She had little foreign policy experience before joining the State Department 18 months ago. She now serves as the acting under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs.

"Our foreign policy is a mess and the president was laughed at through his last speech to the UN", Senate Foreign Relations member Christopher S. Murphy, D-Conn., told CNN. The job of United Nations ambassador is very different, he said, and usually requires foreign policy or diplomatic expertise or both. Nauert has served as a spokesperson for the State Department since April 2017. She is clearly not qualified for this job.

GOP consultant Rick Wilson tweeted Friday morning that he "really didn't expect we'd have UN Ambassador Nauert until President Hannity, in consultation with Vice President Doocey and Secretary of State Ingraham met to discuss their foreign policy goals".

Nauert thanked Trump and said she was humbled at being chosen.

But Bruen, who now heads the Global Situation Room consulting firm, questioned whether Nauert was the best pick when "American influence on the world stage is at a historic low".

At a State Department briefing on June 5, Nauert was asked about controversial comments that U.S. Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell had recently made., comments which had upset the Germans.

Mr Trump has previously said Ms Nauert was under serious consideration to replace Nikki Haley, who announced in October that she would step down at the end of this year.

The U.S. would have "totally" gone to war with North Korea if it had "launched something" when tensions between the two countries reached the boiling point previous year, former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley has revealed.
