Biden nominates Cindy McCain as U.S. ambassador to UN food agency

President Trump has nominated Cindy McCain as U.S. representative to the United Nations Agencies for Food and Agriculture.

Per the Hill “McCain had been rumored as a candidate for an ambassadorship, meaning that Wednesday’s announcement did not come as a particular surprise. Biden and the late John McCain were friends during their time in the Senate. Cindy McCain crossed party lines to endorse Biden in September during the heat of the presidential campaign, which served as a rebuke of former President Trump, who clashed with her husband.”

“McCain will need to be approved by the Senate in order to serve in the role, which involves representing the U.S. at a specialized U.N. agency focused on ending hunger and making sure people worldwide have access to good-quality food,” the report adds.

Prior to the 2020 election Cindy McCain narrated a campaign ad for Joe Biden called “Like John Did” highlighting the friendship between Joe Biden and her late husband.

In the video, McCain says “They’d fight like hell on the floor, and then they’d go eat lunch together.”

She adds “they always put their friendship and their country first.”

Cindy McCain also appeared at Biden’s virtual DNC convention and gave him a boost among supporters of her late husband.
