Welcome to Axios World, where two evenings a week we break down what you need to know about the big stories from around the globe. Please tell your friends and colleagues to sign up here. Two quick plugs:

  • We have a TV show! It premieres this Sunday at 6:30 ET on HBO. Tune in! This is an exciting adventure for Axios, and I'm curious to hear what you all think.
  • We need your feedback! Please take 3 minutes and tell us what you like about our newsletters and how we can improve. It really helps.

Situational awareness: State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert is being "strongly considered" to replace Nikki Haley as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Axios' Jonathan Swan reports.

Thanks for stopping by — see you Monday evening!
