Kelly Craft on Principles & Values



More wisdom next door than declarations from a politician

I will seek to repair the connection between the people and their leadership, to give back to Kentucky a core of honesty and compassion. One thing I do know, from my father--there is more wisdom, more kindness, more of the pure flavor of humanity--next door, in your own neighbor, your grandmother, than in 20 thousand pamphlets or declarations from a politician. I'm here to make an honest return on your trust.

Former ambassador to Canada and the United Nations

Craft has spent years cultivating connections within the GOP. She and her husband, coal magnate Joe Craft, donated millions of dollars to Republican candidates. Now, she's the candidate and has some advantages. She can tap into her family's wealth, and point to her resume as President Donald Trump's ambassador to Canada and the United Nations.

Put American first by demanding transparency from UN

She continued, "We are demanding transparency and accountability from the United Nations organizations because we have to put Americans first, we have to put our American taxpaying dollars first. We owe that to our taxpayers. We also owe it to a lot of the different organizations, whether it's the church groups, the individuals, the private foundations, that are putting forth very large amounts, we owe it to them to provide transparency."

A Christian with deep faith in God, prays EVERY day

Archive: Ambassador Kelly Craft @USAmbUN30:

As a Christian with deep faith in God, I believe in the power of #prayer. It sustains us in the darkest of times. On this #NationalDayOfPrayer and EVERY day, I pray for all our loved ones, @POTUS leadership, and those fighting #COVID19--especially nurses & doctors saving lives.
