Senate confirms Callista Gingrich as President Trump's ambassador to the Vatican

(Vatican Radio) Callista L. Gingrich is the new United States Ambassador-Designate to the Holy See.

She also stated that the USA should "lead the world" on environmental protection, right before Trump pulled out of the Paris Climate Accords.

The U.S. Senate has confirmed Callista Gingrich, wife of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, to serve as the U.S. ambassador to the Vatican.

Her husband, Newt Gingrich, was raised as a Lutheran who became Southern Baptist during graduate school and ultimately a Catholic in 2009.

The vote was 70-23, on Monday with Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and several other Democrats joining all Republicans in favor. The in-house media and consulting company pumps out children's books and conservative documentaries, which feature interviews from Mr. and Mrs. Gingrich.

Newt Gingrich was one of Trump's most vocal and steadfast backers on the campaign trail and has continued to support him since he took office.

Senator Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat from California, voted yes, but Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat from IL who is Catholic, voted against Ms. Gingrich's nomination.

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee held Callista Gingrich's confirmation hearing in mid-July.

Gingrich added that she believes in climate change and that "some of it is due to human behavior".

Democrats have criticized Trump sharply for withdrawing from the Paris climate agreement. Following the couple's marriage, Mr. Gingrich converted to Catholicism.
