Ambassador: The US is better than what was witnessed with Capitol riot

    US Ambassador Joseph Mondello

    The United States should not be defined by moments like the riot at the Capitol Building, but instead by how it bounces back, according to Ambassador Joseph Mondello.

    In a statement today Mr Mondello says despite yesterday’s event the Congress and Vice President fulfilled their duties to certify the Electoral College votes and confirm that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will be the next US President and VP.

    He believes this shows the country’s resolve to show its true essence.

    Mr Mondello is reiterating that America is better than what was witnessed yesterday and assures that the embassy in T&T remains true to the values of democracy, security, human rights, good governance, trade and investment and health.
