As a senator, Mr Brown supported the use of waterboarding and other ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’, the New Zealand Herald reported.
He represented Massachusetts in the U.S. Senate as a Republican from 2010 to 2013 after winning a special election to fill the seat held by the late Ted Kennedy, a Democrat.
Mr Brown lost the seat to Elizabeth Warren. In 2014, he was the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate in New Hampshire but lost to incumbent Senator Jeanne Shaheen.
He is expected to replace Mark Gilbert, who was appointed ambassador by then-US president Barack Obama.
Mr Brown supported Mr Trump during the presidential campaign and had been considered for other administration jobs – including secretary of Veterans Affairs. Brown is a veteran.
The Senate must confirm the nomination. The White House announced Mr Trump’s plans on Thursday.
