WASHINGTON (REUTERS) - The US Senate on Tuesday (Feb 23) confirmed President Joe Biden's nominee, veteran diplomat Linda Thomas-Greenfield, to serve as US ambassador to the United Nations, adding a key member to his national security team nearly a month after her confirmation hearing ... The 100-member Senate backed Thomas-Greenfield by 78 to 20 to be Washington's representative at the world body and a member of Biden's Cabinet, comfortably exceeding the simple majority needed ... "Ambassador Thomas-Greenfield has a long history of expressed opposition to China's use of debt trap tactics and its increasingly malign presence in world governance bodies," Democratic Senator Bob Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said as he urged support.
