Indian-American Nikki Haley to be US envoy to UN

Washington [USA], Nov. 23 : President-elect Donald Trump has chosen South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley as the US ambassador to the United Nations.

Though the official announcement is yet to come, two sources familiar with Trump's decision have confirmed the same, reports the Washington Post.

Haley, an Indian-American, was an outspoken Trump critic throughout much of the presidential race. If confirmed by the Senate, she would become the first female - and first non-white - Cabinet-level official in the Trump administration.

She is the second Asian-American to serve as a U.S. Governor. Despite her misgivings about Trump, she met with the President-elect last week at Trump Tower. Haley later said that they had a "very nice" conversation..
