President Donald Trump has selected Patrick Murray, a man who CNN found to post Islamophobic and transphobic content to his public Facebook profile, to be a U.S. leader at the United Nations. Murray is a big fan of Milo Yiannopoulos, a bigoted white nationalist who intentionally fans the flames of hate.
In a role that's all about diplomacy, Murray's online conduct and viewpoints are not befitting of a top United Nations figure. The only think keeping him from being a key figure in U.S. diplomacy is a Senate confirmation vote.
That's why we're turning to a handful of GOP senators who spoke out the most strongly when the president treated white nationalists with kid gloves following the incidents in Charlottesville. The U.S. can and must do better than putting a major Yiannopoulos fan in charge of international relations.
Say no to racism and say no to Murray!
