“Few individuals understand the ongoing complexities and threats our region is currently facing like Ambassador Trujillo,” Rubio said on Tuesday. “Ambassador Trujillo dutifully represents America’s interests at the OAS and advocates for human rights, democracy, and regional stability. I have worked closely with Ambassador Trujillo for many years and have no doubt he will faithfully continue to represent the United States as Assistant Secretary of State for the Western Hemisphere. I look forward to his nomination hearing and continuing the important work ahead on behalf of the American people.”
