Promoting religious freedom is a foreign policy priority for the Trump Admin. It will be Amb. Sam Brownback’s responsibility to take this message all around the world. I know the best days for religious freedom & America’s leadership for that freedom in the world are yet to come. pic.twitter.com/3PEnffP9qf

AND NOW THIS — the comments though are extraordinarily … um blunt. We have no particular favorite but ‘irony committed suicide in the Potomac” is memorable.
Delighted that former Governor Brownback officially sworn in today by @VP Pence as U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom. @State_IRF ambassador plays critical role in monitoring religious persecution and discrimination worldwide.
