President Donald Trump on Friday announced that he intended to nominate Kelly Knight-Craft, the current U.S. envoy to Canada and a former businesswoman, to the vacant post of United Nations ambassador.
Posting on Twitter, the president said that Craft would do "an outstanding job representing our nation and I have no doubt that, under her leadership, our Country will be represented at the highest level."
If confirmed, Craft, a GOP donor and a Kentucky native, will fill the post vacated by former South Carolina governor Nikki Haley. Craft became a front-runner for the position based on a recommendation by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

She's got class
Does she know how to fight?
That’s what we need most of all right now.
WIKI except...not impressive:
U.S. Ambassador to Canada
In her first week as U.S. Ambassador to Canada, Knight Craft said in an interview with CBC News that when it comes to the scientific consensus on climate change she believes in “both sides of the science.”
Knight Craft has been married three times and divorced twice. She married David S. Moross and then Judson Knight. She wed Joe Craft in April 2016. Craft’s husband is a billionaire coal-mining executive for Alliance Resource Partners, L.P., the third-largest coal producer in the eastern United States.
Knight Craft has been married three times and divorced twice.
She sounds like a gold digger, Jim.
“based on a recommendation by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell”
Well that’s 2 1/2 strikes against her. Trump is seduced by easy confirmation. As a result we gotten some terrible picks.
“based on a recommendation by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.”
Well, he knows better than us. MAGA!
I already miss Haley and her pro-America/America FIRST approach at the UN. I’m almost sure she burned a lot of bridges and that’s a no-no in politics..
Oooof. Where’d he find her?
my dream is she is our LAST UN ambassador after she tells them we are leaving....sounds like she has that part down.... :)
She looks like someone you ought not mess with. Never heard of her.
“Who Dat?” Never heard of her!!!!
Get someone decent—not a “who-dat” or a neocon, but someone who knows how to fight!!!!
I know I miss her. She, Nicki comes across as very strong willed. So is Mr. Trump. I’m sure there were clashes along the way. I can picture her saying ‘Either this happens as I prefer it, or you can find somebody else, Mr. President. This method is what works for me.” Maybe she’s simply had enough drama for right now.
Maybe she will return in some capacity.
If there is too much job dissatisfaction and head-butting, that negativity come out in some other less direct way. You run the risk of getting on the permanent Sh*t List, like Tillerson did.
In her first week as U.S. Ambassador to Canada, Knight Craft said in an interview with CBC News that when it comes to the scientific consensus on climate change she believes in both sides of the science.
She can’t be too bright because both sides can’t be right. Trump could have done better than that.
Her maiden name is similar to someone dating Donald Jr.
She was just trying to diffuse the questioner. The libs are the ones the most upset with her BOTH sides of the science answer. They believe their is only one side.
Why does he insist on putting women in this position? Hailey turned out to be pretty good, but I wouldnt think that would necessarily the norm.
