Ambassador Carla Sands, U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom of Denmark (2017-2021) and U.S. Senate candidate for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania joins co-hosts of America's Roundtable, Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation focusing on the urgency of restoring America's energy independence, addressing the U.S. surging inflation and economic decline, and their impact on families and businesses in Pennsylvania and throughout America. The engaging discussion highlighted the Iran nuclear threat, affirming America's support of Israel, and the significance of the Abraham Accords.
As America's top diplomat to Denmark, a NATO and European Union member state, Ambassador Sands was instrumental in blocking the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline running under the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany. During Ambassador Sands tenure, Denmark increased its defense spending, while U.S. exports to the Kingdom of Denmark rose over 43%, resulting in the creation of additional jobs right here at home.
Prior to her appointment as America's top diplomat to the European Union member state, Ambassador Sands had a diverse career in the entrepreneurial, investment, and philanthropic sectors, with a focus on real estate, community service and education. As Chairman of Vintage Capital Group, she also served on President Trump’s Transition Finance Committee and Economic Advisory Council in 2016, and was the California Delegate for the 33rd Congressional District to the 2016 Republican National Convention.
