President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday chose South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley to be his selection as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Haley was an outspoken Trump critic throughout much of his campaign, yet she’s now poised to be the first female Cabinet-level official in the Trump administration. Haley still needs Senate confirmation to take the post.

“Governor Haley has a proven track record of bringing people together regardless of background or party affiliation to move critical policies forward for the betterment of her state and our country,” Trump said in a statement. “She is also a proven dealmaker, and we look to be making plenty of deals. She will be a great leader representing us on the world stage.”

A Trump spokesperson said Wednesday that Trump and Haley had “natural chemistry” when they met on Thursday and her selection as UN ambassador was an easy choice.

Born in South Carolina and of Indian descent, Haley is the second Asian-American to serve as U.S. governor, following ex-Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal.

    I thought Trump was going to get us out of the UN!
    What do we need with an ambassador?
    Trump is going back on his word on many things
    he said he was going to do during his campaign!
    Very disappointed!
