imrs.php

Today, Hillary Clinton released the following statement on the official appointment of António Guterres as the next United Nations Secretary-General:

“I would like to extend my warmest congratulations to António Guterres on his appointment as the next Secretary-General of the United Nations. Throughout his career, Mr. Guterres has proven himself to be an advocate for human rights and a champion for the most vulnerable. As UN High Commissioner for Refugees, he provided help and hope to millions of men, women and children who have been forced to flee from their homes.  And he is a consensus-builder who can bring people together to advance common interests and address common challenges. I was heartened that Mr. Guterres indicated that gender equality will be a top priority when filling senior positions. I strongly support efforts that increase diversity in UN leadership. And if I’m elected President of the United States, I look forward to working with Mr. Guterres and all of our partners to help shape a more peaceful and prosperous future for every global citizen.”

Hillary Clinton Endorsed by The Salt Lake Tribune

dt-common-streams-streamserver-cls

On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton received the endorsement of The Salt Lake Tribune. The Salt Lake City, Utah based newspaper said that while Clinton does have her fair share of drawbacks, her experience and leadership ability far outshines Republican Donald Trump. The editorial board goes so far as to criticize the Republican party for buying into Trump’s rhetoric. They said, “Utah Republicans were perceptive enough to reject Trump in their March presidential caucus voting. Were they to support Clinton now, even by the narrowest of pluralities, it would send a strong message to the Republican Party to turn their backs on Trumpism and to work with Clinton where they can, rather than devote themselves to blocking her every move.” Read the full endorsement HERE.
