White House Press Sec. Says Biden Won’t Fire ‘Widely Respected’ UN Ambassador After Race-Baiting Comments

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said Friday Joe Biden has no intention of removing his race-baiting UN Ambassador after she said that white supremacy is woven into America’s founding documents.

UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield on Wednesday told Al Sharpton’s radical shakedown group, the National Action Network, that if the United States is going to join the UN’s Human Rights Council, the nation must acknowledge that it is still a white supremacist society.

“I’ve seen for myself how the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles,” she said.

During the White House Press briefing Friday morning, Newsmax reporter Emerald Robinson asked Psaki if Biden would be removing Thomas-Greenfield from her position after she “essentially parroted Chinese Communist talking points.”

“Is the president going to remove an African American woman with decades of experience in the foreign service who’s widely respected around the world from her position as ambassador to the UN? He’s not,” Psaki intoned in response. “He is proud to have her in that position. She is not only qualified, he believes she is exactly the right person in that role at this moment in time.”

Psaki said that she had not seen Thomas-Greenfield’s comments, but suggested that she agreed with the ambassador’s assessment that the United States was founded on racism.

“I have not seen her comments. I will say there is no question that there has been a history of institutional racism in this country,”

 

 

Thomas-Greenfield’s decades of experience, it turns out, includes being the “former Senior Vice President for the Albright-Stonebridge Group, which has held a number of senior CCP officials as clients,” according to a Republican Study Committee (RSC) report.

“Ambassador Greenfield has a history of troubling comments praising and welcoming China’s role in Africa,” the RSC said. “As Senator Ted Cruz [R-TX] has pointed out, in 2006, Greenfield said she was not concerned about China’s growing influence in Africa, and in 2013 she stated that she does not see the U.S. competing with China in Africa.”

Thomas-Greenfield also made troubling comments at the Chinese Communist Party (CCP)-funded Confucius Institute at Savannah State University in Georgia in 2019, where she spoke of U.S. relations with China, and Africa, according to a copy of the speech obtained by the Washington Post.

Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-TN) said in a statement in January that contrary to what Thomas-Greenfield said in her speech, “China’s Belt and Road Initiative is not a force for good, but an instrument of the Chinese Communist Party’s debt-trap diplomacy, corruption-driven capture of foreign elites, and predatory economic behavior around the world.”

Earlier this week, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) reacted to Thomas-Greenfield’s statements about racism being a part of America’s founding documents by pointing out that our nation’s diplomats under Biden are saying the same things about America that the red Chinese or Soviets used to say about the U.S.

Cotton said, “Amazing. Yeah, you used to listen to Communist Chinese or Communist Soviets call Americans racists at the United Nations. In the Biden administration, you hear that from our own ambassador. That’s disgraceful.”
