Sources are indicating US President Donald Trump has made the previously-hinted-at decision to replace retiring United Nations ambassador Nikki Haley with foreign-policy newcomer Heather Nauert.
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.
Nauert would replace Nikki Haley, who has held the post since the beginning of Trump's administration. A Republican congressional aide said the president was expected to announce his decision by tweet on Friday morning.
Haley rattled the United Nations when she arrived in January 2017 vowing that the United States will be "taking names" of countries that oppose Trump's foreign policy, particularly regarding Israel. Trump had already confirmed that Nauert was a "very serious consideration" in early November. With a master's degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism, she had come to Fox from ABC News, where she was a general assignment reporter.
Haley announced in October that she would be resigning as the ambassador to the United Nations.

Giuliani Goes Full Conspiracy Theory Because He Doesn't Understand The Internet
Right now, in 2018, Guiliani believes he is being maliciously cyberattacked on Twitter because he doesn't know how links work. A Twitter spokesman said "the accusation that we're artificially injecting something into a tweet is completely false".
Nauert's foreign policy experience is limited to her year-and-a-half tenure as State Department Spokesperson, plus half a year as the Under Secretary of State for Public Diplomacy and Public Affairs, plus one-episode cameo in Fox's foreign-policy drama "24" which is all about global diplomatic crises.
The current State Department spokeswoman has earned the trust of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, Bloomberg reported.
A representative of the State Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
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". All the while, she stayed in the good graces of the White House, even as Tillerson was increasingly on the outs.
