Nauert Lacks Experience to Assume Post of US Ambassador to UN - Lawmaker

WASHINGTON (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 08th December, 2018) Ranking Member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee Eliot Engel expressed concern that Heather Nauert, President Donald Trump's nominee for ambassador to the United Nations, does not have the diplomatic experience to do the job.

"Ambassador to the UN is one of our most important diplomatic positions, and I'm uneasy with the President's nomination of someone with such limited diplomatic experience," Engel said in a statement on Friday.

Engel added that he hopes to hear Nauert's vision for the job and will watch her confirmation process with interest.

Earlier on Friday, Trump announced that he planned to nominate Nauert, the current State Department spokesperson, to replace outgoing US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley.

Nauert will need to be confirmed by the US Senate, which has said it plans to hold confirmation hearings early next year.
