In addition to that role, Ms Nauert was appointed acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs in March this year.

Nonetheless, during her two-year stint, Haley became a darling of the Trump administration and the pro-Israel community for her vociferous defense of the Jewish state at the United Nations, a body often seen as hostile to Israel.

Nauert would need to be confirmed by the Senate before taking up the role. Officials at the White House at times viewed Haley with skepticism, in part over her willingness to publicly disagree with the president.
