S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley, a loud critic of Donald Trump during the campaign season, has now been chosen by the president-elect as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, sources said Wednesday.

And according to NBC News, Haley’s accepted the position.

From the news outlet:

“South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has accepted Donald Trump’s offer to be his ambassador to the United Nations, a source familiar with the president-elect’s transition process confirmed to NBC News on Wednesday.

“Haley, 44, is a two-term governor. She initially backed Trump rivals Sen. Marco Rubio and then Sen. Ted Cruz during the GOP battle for a White House nominee. …

“Trump’s selection of Haley caps a remarkable year for their political relationship. They started 2016 with a fight and are ending it as allies in a nascent Trump administration.

“The pair feuded in January after Haley’s Republican response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union, during which she took a thinly-veiled swipe at Trump, warning against ‘the siren call of the angriest voices.’”

The announcement was surprising to some, given Haley’s staunch opposition to Trump during the campaign. Haley is largely seen as more moderate than others who had been considered for the role, like John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, under George W. Bush’s presidency.
