Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Joe Biden’s ambassador to the United Nations, said “the original sin of slavery weaved white supremacy” into America’s “founding documents and principles.”
Speaking to the National News Network, a civil rights organization founded by Al Sharpton, Thomas-Greenfield spoke about the Biden administration’s intention to reenter the United Nations’ Human Rights Council, which former President Donald Trump left in 2018. According to Thomas-Greenfield, the US must “acknowledge that we are an imperfect union and have been since the beginning.”
That imperfection, she continued, lies in the “original sin of slavery,” which “weaved white supremacy into our founding documents and principles.” She then cited white supremacy as being behind the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and “so many other black Americans.”

The presidential oath is found in Article II of the Constitution. It contains 35 words and goes as follows:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
I just got one question. Are the words of Linda Thomas-Greenfield preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States? If Joe Biden does not remove immediately Linda Thomas-Greenfield as our UN ambassador, then he should be impeached for not upholding his oath to his office.
