Nauert, who Trump praised as being "very talented" and "very smart," would replace Ambassador Nikki Haley who has been a vocal advocate for US foreign policy and Israel at the UN.
Nauert has served as the State Department spokesperson since April 2017.
She was later appointed as acting undersecretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs, making the former Fox News broadcast journalist one of the highest ranking women in the agency.
Nauert would need to be confirmed by the US Senate, but if she passes that hurdle, she would become a top voice for Trump's foreign policy. Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
