@KamalaHarris

Today marks a solemn milestone for the United States: the loss of one million lives due to COVID-19. One million lives. We remember and honor those lost to this virus. I send my prayers to the loved ones who have endured such pain during this pandemic.

Today I had the honor of swearing in Nick Perry as our next Ambassador to Jamaica. He has dedicated his entire life in service to the people of New York and our nation. I congratulate him on his new role.
