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.

Back in October, Nauert, a former Fox News host, was believed to be a “leading contender” for the position, sources familiar with the selection process said at the time.

Haley unexpectedly announced her resignation in October and promised to serve in her role through the end of 2018. At the time, she described her time in the position as a “blessing,” but offered no reason for leaving except a belief that government officials must know “when it’s time to step aside.”

In her resignation letter, she also dismissed the possibility of running in the 2020 election.

“I expect to continue to speak out from time to time on important public policy matters, but I will surely not be a candidate for any office in 2020,” she wrote. “As a private citizen, I look forward to supporting your re-election as President, and supporting the policies that will continue to move our great country toward even greater heights.”

Trump praised Haley as a being a “fantastic person” who did “an incredible job” in the role.

Nauert was named as the State Department spokeswoman in April 2017.

    Strong-willed, even tempered, head not in the clouds, like way too many who’ve infiltrated our government. Great choice, Mr. President!

    I wish this lady lots of luck however I think she will have a hard time filling Nikki Haley shoes! There was a time when I was against Nikki Haley when she stood by another candidate running against Mr. Trump. I think Nikki Haley did a good job on the surface, I’m not sure of the behind the scenes but on the surface she was an outstanding American citizen who made all those who died for this great nation proud

    I had to question the choice of Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador because when she gave a Republican response to a speech by President Obama, it was mostly critical of Donald Trump, who hadn’t even thrown his hat in the ring yet. But like Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, she has been a constant supporter of Donald Trump since he became the 45th President. None of them have had a problem with number 45, unlike Jeb Bush or John Kasich. I’m sure many don’t remember that Haley was Governor of South Carolina before taking on the UN role, which she has handled very well.

    Heather Nauert wasn’t as much a Fox anchor, as coming in to the morning show, having to stand there, off to the side, and add some news. She then suddenly became spokesperson for the State Department. I’m sure if this happens, it will be a good move for the Trump administration.

    Haley will make a great Vice-President for President Pence in 2024.

    Isn’t it strange that many people believe that Trump is against women, yet keep putting them in top positions?
