Republican Senator Lindsey Graham (S.C.) posted statements on Twitter Friday, regarding the president’s newly announced nominees.

Friday morning, President Trump confirmed that he has chosen State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert to replace Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the United Nations.

Graham tweeted in response, “I’ve known Heather for many years. She was an effective spokeswoman for the Department of State and enjoys the confidence of Secretary Pompeo and President @realDonaldTrump.
I’m sure she will perform well at her hearing and look forward to supporting her nomination.”

Additionally, the president said he has selected William Barr, who formerly served as Attorney General under the late President George H.W. Bush, to once again fill that role.

Sen. Graham praised this nomination, writing, “President @realDonaldTrump made an outstanding decision in nominating William Barr to serve as the next #AttorneyGeneral.  Mr. Barr is highly capable, highly respected and will provide new and much-needed leadership for the Department of Justice.”

He continued, “Having previously served as AG under President George H.W. Bush, Mr. Barr is a known quantity, a man of the highest integrity and character, and has an impeccable reputation. He will provide a strong and steady hand to the fine men and women at the Department of Justice.”
