CBS News confirms President-elect Donald Trump will pick South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley as U.S. Ambassador to the U.N.
Haley 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's the second Asian-American to serve as a U.S. governor. Trump plans to treat the job as a Cabinet-level position, according to the sources.
Despite her misgivings about Trump, she met with the president-elect last week at Trump Tower. Afterward, Haley said they'd had a "very nice" conversation.
