If Mr. Trump is good at anything, he is good at denying true emergencies exist like the amount of people mass murdered by guns in this country, and the effects of climate change. In addition, the president has successfully appointed people in his administration who are as painfully ignorant as himself.
The new UN ambassador Kelly Knight Craft is a great example of this. During Trump’s presidential campaign, he always promised to hire the “best people.” However, the reality is that Trump just shifts around people rather than looking for new people.
On Friday, Mr. Trump announced:
‘I am pleased to announce that Kelly Knight Craft, our current Ambassador to Canada, is being nominated to be United States Ambassador to the United Nations.
‘Kelly has done an outstanding job representing our Nation and I have no doubt that, under her leadership, our Country will be represented at the highest level. Congratulations to Kelly and her entire family!’
Knight Craft will replace Nikki Haley as the new U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, and her nomination will be sent to the Senate for consideration. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) had already recommended the Kentucky native for the position.
Knight Craft is best known for her controversial remarks about climate change, and has said she believes in “both sides” of climate change.
It’s perhaps most important to know that Knight Craft and her billionaire husband donated millions of dollars to Trump’s campaign. So of course, he is now appointing her to help make decisions that affect millions.
