The Daily Wire reports:
Nauert, who has served as State Department spokesperson since April 2017, worked for both Secretaries of State that have served during the Trump administration — Rex Tillerson and Mike Pompeo.
Fox News added that earlier this year Nauert was also “named acting undersecretary for public diplomacy and public affairs after the dismissal of Steve Goldstein from that post.”
