WATCH: Biden’s pick for Ambassador to U.N. declares “America Is Back”

Joe Biden’s nominee for U.S. ambassador to the U.N. Linda Thomas-Greenfield declared in a speech Tuesday “America is back.”

Thomas-Greenfield declared “my fellow career diplomats and public servants around the world, I want to say to you America is back, multilateralism is back, diplomacy is back.”

She continued “Mr. President-Elect I have often heard you say how all politics is personal and that is how you build relationships of trust and bridge disagreements and find common ground.”

“In my 35 years in the foreign service across four continents I put a Cajun spin on it,” Thomas-Greenfield added “I called it Gumbo diplomacy, wherever I was posted around the world I would invite people of different backgrounds and beliefs to help me make a rule and chop onions for the holy trinity and make homemade gumbo. It was my way of breaking down barriers, connecting with people and starting to see each other on a human level, a bit of lagniappe is what we say in Louisiana.”
