Trump Confirms He Will Nominate Bill Barr for AG, Heather Nauert for UN Ambassador


President Trump has confirmed that he will nominate Bill Barr to become his new Attorney General, and Heather Nauert will be the new Ambassador to the United Nations.

Various outlets have said Barr and Nauert were among the most likely nominees for both positions, and Trump confirmed the news as he spoke to reporters on the White House South Lawn. Trump praised Barr as a “highly respected lawyer” and “a brilliant man,” and he offered similar compliments to the “very talented” Nauert as she presumably takes over for Nikki Haley.
