The White House is weighing replacing outgoing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley with Heather Nauert, former Fox News host and current State Department spokesperson and acting under secretary for public diplomacy and public affairs.

The White House staffers consider Nauert a qualified defender and supporter of the Trump administration’s foreign policy, and she is also a potential candidate to replace White House press secretary Sarah Sanders if she should leave, according to Politico.

Nauert and the White House did not respond to a request for comment from Politico.

If selected, Nauert would be required to relocate to New York City. A senior administration official said to Politico that Nauert’s husband and children are in New York.

Haley met with Trump in the Oval Office last week, where the two announced she was resigning and would officially leave her post by year's end. Trump said that Haley foreshadowed her exit about six months ago and that he wanted an on-air goodbye to dispel speculation about an adversarial ouster.

Trump also said Haley would “help me make the final pick” on her successor. Other potential candidates to replace Haley include Trump’s envoys to Canada, France, and Germany, Politico reports.
