Washington, D.C. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement after the Senate confirmed U.S. Ambassador to Canada Kelly Craft to serve as the next U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations:
“I applaud the Senate for confirming Ambassador Kelly Craft to be the next U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations. The United Nations and many of its organizations have become platforms for Russia, China, and other malign actors to attack the United States and our allies, and to block productive U.N. Security Council resolutions from moving forward. We need another strong ambassador who will not only advocate for the U.S., but also be a staunch voice for global human rights and democracy. I have no doubt Ambassador Craft will faithfully represent the United States and I look forward to working with her as she assumes her new role.”
