President Trump has chosen Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as USA ambassador to the United Nations, three sources with knowledge of the decision told CBS News. Nauert would need to be confirmed by the Senate before taking up the role.

When she announced her decision to step down the president called her a "very special person" and said she had told him some months before that she wanted to take some time off.

She has been the front runner for the United Nations post for some weeks and last month President Trump said she was under "under very serious consideration".

Nauert would replace current ambassador Nikki Haley, who plans to leave her post at the end of the year, according to Bloomberg News. She became the State Department's spokeswoman in April 2017 and was named earlier this year as the acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.

Ahead of the vote, the USA ambassador sent a letter to all UN missions to make clear that "the United States takes the outcome of this vote very seriously".

He pulled the United States out of the U.N. human rights body in September, citing bias toward Israel, and his administration has cut funding for the U.N. refugee agency and a year ago proposed US funding cuts for aid and diplomacy that could curb the work of the global body.

"She's excellent, she's been with us a long time, she's been a supporter for a long time", Trump told reporters on November 1. She was in charge of the Global Engagement Center that fights extremist messaging from the Islamic State group and others, and she has a seat on the U.S. Agency for Global Media that oversees government broadcast networks such as Voice of America. Before this, she worked as an ABC News correspondent and as an anchor on the Fox News program, Fox and Friends. She does not have prior political or policy-making experience. All the while, she stayed in the good graces of the White House, even as Tillerson was increasingly on the outs.
