Trump Reveals Haley Replacement Frontrunner

President Trump has revealed the frontrunner for Nikki Haley's replacement as United Nations ambassador. Trump made the statement while speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One.

According to Fox News:

President Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One on Tuesday that he has narrowed down his list of potential replacements for outgoing United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley to five people, after his daugher Ivanka removed herself from consideration for the post earlier in the day.

Trump has said he’ll name a successor for Haley in the next few weeks, amid widespread speculation over who could fill her shoes.

So far, the president has revealed only one name that's definitely on his shortlist: former deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, who Trump said Tuesday is "certainly a person I would consider" appointing.

Powell, who departed the White House in January, has worked as a managing director for Goldman Sachs and served as a senior official in George W. Bush's administration. She worked in the Trump White House both in her national security role and as Assistant to the President and Senior Counselor for Economic Initiatives.

Despite Powell being one of the frontrunners Trump said he has many names and hinted that his list includes five candidates for the role. It will be interesting to see who the President picks.
