Cindy McCain, wife of Sen. John McCain, has agreed to become part of the Trump administration’s State Department despite her husband being an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, 100% Fed Up reports.
After several attempts by Trump to convince Cindy McCain to join his administration, she has finally accepted a role as a Washington-based ambassador-at-large, focusing on refugees, humanitarian-aid matters and anti-human trafficking efforts.
Trump has talked many times to the McCains about a role for Cindy, including during a dinner with the couple at the White House in April.
A White House official said, “It’s a done deal now… The president had floated several positions before—this is the one that stuck.”
Trump’s daughter Ivanka has strongly lobbied for bringing Cindy McCain in the administration after learning of her long experience on global humanitarian issues.
Cindy McCain is known for her extensive work on human rights issues in addition to being part of the McCain’s Institute’s Human Trafficking Advisory Council.
