Ireland lost two major poets today with the deaths of Irish language poet Máire Mhac an tSaoi (who was also a diplomat with @dfatirl in the ‘40s & ‘50s) as well as English language poet & academic Brendan Kennelly. May they Rest in Peace. rte.ie/news/ireland/2021/101…
Thank you to the @NobelPrize Committee for the spotlight on journalists and our battle for facts. To my friends & family, @rapplerdotcom supporters, thank you for helping us #HoldTheLine. Please give me a few days to respond to the messages you've sent! :)
Honored to meet President @luisabinader as we prepare to lead off today’s U.S.-Dominican Republic High-Level Dialogue. I’m grateful for the warm welcome to #SantoDomingo, & looking forward to discussing the partnership between our countries.
Dominicans want real progress in the fight against corruption. As I said at today’s US-Dominican Republic High-Level Dialogue, this is a priority for @POTUS too—and the US will support reformers & leaders like @luisabinader who share this goal. My remarks: usaid.gov/news-information/s…
From the moment I immigrated to the US as a kid, I found community through baseball. It's the same here in the #DominicanRepublic. A highlight to #PlayBall with these young people, talk @RedSox & @Nationals & share in our love for this beautiful game.
Welcome to @PalomaAdamsA, just confirmed by a vote of 79-20 as the first of two Deputy Administrators at @USAID! Paloma’s upbringing between Jamaica and the US inspired her decades of work in foreign assistance, and we're thrilled she's back to maximize USAID's global impact.
Last week, @POTUS announced US will purchase another 500 million @Pfizer doses to donate via @Gavi to low income countries. Join me on my behind-the-scenes tour of the Kalamazoo, MI plant to see how #COVID19 vaccines that have made the US the "arsenal of vaccines" are produced.
Hear from Administrator @PowerUSAID as she addresses #GlobalCitizenLive, which brings artists, world leaders and citizens together to take action against the compounding COVID-19 induced crises of hunger and poverty.
Michael Kovrig embraces his wife Vina Nadjibulla on the tarmac after arriving at Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Saturday, Sept. 25, 2021. Two Canadians who were imprisoned in China for nearly three years are home. #MichaelKovrig

So wonderful to see legendary former @USAID administrators @GayleSmith and @rajshah at yesterday’s #CovidSummit. They are now working in & out of government to end the pandemic—grateful for their bold leadership and invaluable counsel.
I’d like to thank @POTUS for showing his approbation at #UNGA to the Women & men of Sudan who gave their all 2+ years ago to demand freedom, peace & justice.
We look forward to the continued support of the U.S administration to our people's firm quest to democracy & rule of law.
