Senate Confirms Biden’s Choice for U.N. Ambassador

The U.S. Senate on Tuesday confirmed Linda Thomas-Greenfield to serve as the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

President Joe Biden nominated Thomas-Greenfield, a career diplomat who has served under two previous administrations, shortly after his victory over Donald Trump in the November election.

“This confirmation sends a message that the United States is back and that our foreign service is back,” said Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), who chairs a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Africa, global health and global human rights. “We as a country and as a world are safer with Linda Thomas-Greenfield serving as the United States ambassador to the United Nations.”

Thomas-Greenfield, who served in various positions under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, was the assistant secretary of state for African American affairs from 2013 to 2017 before she was fired after Donald Trump took office amid a purge of top-level State Department officials.
