Trump's NATO Ambassador Calls Biden President-Elect, Vows 'Seamless' Transition [View all]

Source: Forbes

TOPLINE North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Ambassador and former Republican Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison broke with President Trump on Monday by acknowledging Joe Biden as president-elect and referring to his team as the “incoming administration,” making her one of the first Trump appointees to do so.

During a virtual press conference in Brussels, Hutchison said “President-Elect Biden certainly is pro-NATO,” calling him a “supporter of the trans-Atlantic bond” and asserting he “likes to have allies.”
