Another surprising choice but this will go a long way with building unity in the GOP.
President-elect Donald Trump has chosen South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to be the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, a source with knowledge of the decision told Fox News on Wednesday.
Haley was an outspoken Trump critic throughout much of his campaign. If confirmed by the Senate, she would become the first female – and first non-white – Cabinet-level official in the Trump administration.
She’s the second Asian-American to serve as U.S. governor.
Early in the presidential race, Haley campaigned for Florida Sen. Marco Rubio before going on to support Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.
Haley met with Trump last week and said they had a “very nice” conversation.
