Trump first stated his intention to nominate Craft in February on Twitter. He said that she had done an “outstanding job” in her current role as U.S. ambassador to Canada.
….Kelly has done an outstanding job representing our Nation and I have no doubt that, under her leadership, our Country will be represented at the highest level. Congratulations to Kelly and her entire family!

Haley also showed her support for Craft in February on Twitter and said that she would be a “strong voice for America at the United Nations.”
Trump’s original pick to replace Haley was Heather Nauert, the former State Department spokeswoman. She withdrew her name from consideration in February after problems arose in her background related to an undocumented nanny she had employed at her home.
