President Donald Trump is expected to nominate former diplomat and Fox News foreign affairs commentator Richard Grenell as the United States ambassador to Germany.

A source with knowledge of the matter told the Associated Press on Thursday that Grenell is Trump's choice.

If confirmed by the Senate, Grenell would be the first openly LGBT ambassador nominee for Trump.

Grenell was the longest serving U.S. spokesman at the United Nations during former President George W. Bush's administration, advising four different U.S. ambassadors. He also served as a foreign policy spokesman for Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign.

If confirmed, Grenell would be tasked with fostering closer ties between Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who has publicly criticized Trump.
