President Trump announced his nominations for the replacements of the Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley. Jeff Sessions was removed from his position of Attorney General for his lack of willingness to reign in the corrupt Mueller investigation, and Nikki Haley stepped down because she wanted to spend more time with family and potentially further her political career.
Trump’s nomination for Attorney General is William Barr who was a former Attorney General during the Bush Sr. administration. Barr was Attorney General from 1991-1993, and is respected by both Republicans and Democrats. Barr should have no issues getting the nomination votes to be approved as the next Attorney General.
William Barr has made statements in 2017 about furthering investigations into Hillary Clinton. Barr stated, “I do think that there are things that should be investigated that haven’t been investigated.”
President Trump has nominated State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as the new U.N. Ambassador. Nauert is a former Fox News anchor, and will likely carry forward the disdain of the U.N. treatment of Israel.
