Trump picks SC Gov. Haley to be UN ambassador
WASHINGTON - President-elect Donald Trump says he intends to nominate Republican Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina to be the next U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.
The job requires Senate approval. If that happens, Haley would become the first female - and first nonwhite - Cabinet-level official in his administration. She's the daughter of Indian immigrants.
Trump says in a statement that Haley is "a proven dealmaker and we look forward to making plenty of deals." Trump says Haley "will be a great leader representing us on the world stage."
