President Trump has picked Heather Nauert, the State Department’s spokeswoman, as the next ambassador to the United Nations.
To take over the Cabinet role, Nauert will need to be confirmed by the Senate.
A senior administration official told Fox News Nauert has traveled more than 155,000 miles on 26 international trips — the majority with Pompeo.
In her role, Nauert oversaw public diplomacy in Washington and all of the roughly 275 overseas U.S. embassies, consulates and other posts.
Before joining the State Department, Nauert was an anchor and correspondent at Fox News.
