WASHINGTON — Win Without War Director Stephen Miles released the following statement regarding Donald Trump’s plans to nominate Heather Nauert U.S. Ambassador to the UN:
“Former Fox News anchor Heather Nauert had no business serving as State Department spokesperson, and she certainly isn’t qualified to become our nation’s next ambassador to the United Nations.
“Nauert not only has no meaningful experience and is seemingly unaware of the most basic historical facts, but she also has a history of xenophobic fearmongering, smearing refugees, and spreading Benghazi conspiracy theories and anti-Muslim hate. We simply cannot afford to double down on ignorance and bigotry as the face of American foreign policy.
“Congress should reject this nomination and force Donald Trump to present a qualified candidate who represents values of inclusion, tolerance, and respect.”
