Trump Picks Sam Brownback as International Religious Freedom Ambassador


Recommended Posts


President Donald Trump has selected Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback (R.) to serve as ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, which would have him speak for oppressed religious groups around the world.
Brownback became a leader on human rights when he was in the U.S. Senate, during which time he visited Darfur, Sudan, and reported back that the region was seeing a genocide. Former Virginia congressman Frank Wolf, who helped create the ambassadorship for religious freedom, said that Brownback was a great choice.
"This job is really made for Sam," Wolf told the Kansas City Star. "On all these issues he’s been there before almost anybody else."
Brownback would report to the State Department and take the lead on issues of international religious freedom. He said he was honored to receive the appointment.:snip:
