President Trump will tweet Friday morning that he is nominating State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, replacing outgoing official Nikki Haley, multiple sources tell Fox News. Nauert was then appointed acting undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs and was for a time the highest-ranking woman and fourth highest-ranking official in the building.

Nuart was brought on to the administration after providing commentary on "Fox and Friends" on what appears to be Trump's favorite cable news network.

Having the direct support of the president and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo could buttress her image, however, among global diplomats at the United Nations, who have bristled at Trump's "America First" foreign policy.

Nauert did not respond to requests for comment.

Haley also quelled speculation about a potential 2020 bid for president. She does not have prior political or policy-making experience.

It was reported in November that Nauert had been offered the job, but it was not clear at the time whether she had accepted.

The president has reportedly sought out someone who will demonstrate loyalty.

However Ms Haley has made no secret of the fact that she has had policy disagreements with Mr Trump. Nauert beat out other contenders for the position including: former White House advisor Dina Powell, U.S. Ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft, and U.S. Ambassador to Germany Ric Grenell.

Haley took a particularly forceful posture against Russian Federation, assailing the Kremlin at United Nations security council meetings over its aggression in Ukraine and support for Bashar al-Assad in Syria, even as Trump remained reluctant to criticize Vladimir Putin.
