The woman selected by President Donald Trump to represent the United States at the United Nations began her tenure Thursday by pledging to work with other nations to make a freer and more prosperous world for all.

"I come to the UN not only as the president's emissary but as a voice of America's unwavering commitment to democracy, freedom, human rights and, whenever possible, the peaceful resolution of conflicts," Kelly Craft told reporters.
