Listen: President Trump, Nikki Haley And State Department discussed on This Morning with Gordon Deal
"Least for a couple of more weeks congress yesterday approved a two week extension for a key government funding deadline congressional leaders in both parties have indicated they do not want a partial shutdown, but Democrats and Republicans remain at an impasse over Mr. Trump's demand for five billion dollars for as long promised border wall. And the issue continues to be the key sticking point in negotiations. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, most of us speaking for myself, consider the wall. Immoral ineffective expensive and president said he promised, and he also promised Mexico would pay for it. So even if they did is immoral still. And then they're not going to pay for it. However because funding is now set to expire on December twenty first this sets up a showdown over spending just before Christmas that could trigger a partial government shutdown later this month the measure now heads to the White House for President Trump's signature. Multiple reports say President Trump today will nominate State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to be the US ambassador to the United Nations. Here's this morning's Dave Duncan misnomer. Who's forty eight is a former Fox News host who became State Department spokesman in April two thousand seventeen she also served as acting under secretary of state for public diplomacy and public affairs briefly this year early in her career now it worked as a health insurance consultant she studied at mount Vernon seminary in college in Washington DC and Columbia University's journalism school. She would replace Nikki Haley who resigned suddenly in October. Gordon? Thank you, Dave MS Nauert's candidacy had the strong support of secretary of state, Mike Pompeo who came to trust her as a reliable voice. It was a stark turnaround from the era of Rex Tillerson, who's shut her out from his inner circle, she may face a tough confirmation battle given her lack of experience.."
