President-elect Donald Trump is picking South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) to become his U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, the Charleston Post and Courier has learned.
“The move, expected Wednesday, continues the steep political rise of the daughter of Indian immigrants that started six years ago when the Bamberg native was elected as South Carolina’s first female and minority governor.”
Washington Post: “If confirmed, Haley would be replaced by South Carolina’s Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster, a top Trump ally. His ascension is seen inside of Trump’s inner circle as a welcome consequence of her departure, the person said — a way to promote them both.”
