Biden U.N. Ambassador Nominee ‘Praised’ China’s Success In Africa At CCP-Funded Institute, ‘Got Paid $1,500’: Reports

President Joe Biden’s nominee for ambassador to the U.N. is facing controversy after a recent news report revealed that she praised communist China’s success in Africa at an event that was hosted by a Chinese Communist Party-funded organization.

Washington Post reporter Josh Rogin wrote this week that Linda Thomas-Greenfield “praised China’s success in Africa and got paid $1,500” during an October 2019 speech for “Georgia’s Savannah State University in honor of the fifth anniversary of its Confucius Institute,” Politico reported.

The Post reported that Senate aides indicated that Thomas-Greenfield’s speech “was too optimistic and soft regarding China’s policies and intentions in Africa at a time when the U.S. government was trying to shed light on China’s many abuses there.” In the speech, Thomas-Greenfield “touted” China’s Belt and Road Initiative, criticized the Trump administration’s confrontation of China in Africa, and “seemed to excuse Beijing’s debt-trap diplomacy in Africa,” the Post added.
