New US envoy Kelly Craft says she will be voice for freedom

Sponsored by:

UNITED NATIONS — Kelly Craft has presented her credentials as the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and says she is coming to the world organization “as a voice of America’s unwavering commitment to democracy, freedom, human rights and whenever possible peaceful resolution of conflicts.”

Craft is a longtime Republican activist who previously served as U.S. ambassador to Canada. She expressed “extraordinary gratitude for the bold leadership” of President Donald Trump.

“Strong American leadership is absolutely critical and I intend to provide it,” Craft said. “I will stand by our friends and allies, I will advocate for the poor and the weak.”

She spoke briefly to reporters Thursday after presenting her credentials to Secretary-General António Guterres and delivering a statement at her first U.N. Security Council meeting on the Central African Republic.
