Trump Makes His Picks for Attorney General, UN
Confirmation of President Trump's reported picks for attorney general and UN ambassador didn't take long. "He was my first choice [for AG] since day one. He'll be nominated," Trump told reporters of Republican William Barr on Friday, per the Hill.
A lawyer who served as AG from 1991 to 1993 under George HW Bush, Barr reportedly isn't keen on the job and is expected to face a tough confirmation hearing given comments on the Russia investigation and Hillary Clinton.
Trump also said he would nominate Heather Nauert, a former Fox News anchor who served as spokesperson for the State Department, to replace Nikki Haley as ambassador to the UN.
