US President Trump Nominates Kelly Craft as US Envoy to the UN
February 23 , 2019
The US President Donald Trump has announced that he has nominated Kelly Craft as the envoy to the United Nations. Kelly Craft is currently serving as the US ambassador to Canada. President Trump made this announcement after 4-months of an intensive search to replace Nikki Haley. Reports say Kelly’s name came up as a serious contender for the position after she was recommended by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo lauded Kelly’s role in Canada. She has carved her name as a tough negotiator in striking the trade deals with Canada and Mexico. French U.N. Ambassador Francois Delattre has said that he is looking forward to working with Kelly if the US Senate confirms her name.
