President-elect Donald Trump (I threw up a little just now writing that) has named his pick for U.S. ambassador to the United Nations. He’s selected Republican Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley. Haley is the first woman Trump has selected for his administration.
Haley’s also the first minority Trump has selected: She’s of Indian descent, and her parents are Sikh.
Haley has served two terms as governor of South Carolina, and is known for advocating removing the Confederate flag from South Carolina’s State Capitol grounds.
She is the first woman governor of South Carolina, as well as the first minority governor of the state.
According to CNN, “Haley will keep serving as governor until the Senate confirms her nomination.”
