America's Roundtable

A Conversation with Ambassador Carla Sands | Principled Solutions for America — Advancing Freedom and Affirming Peace through Strength

May 16th, 2022

Honorable Carla Sands, U.S. Ambassador to the Kingdom of Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands (2017-2021) and a U.S. Senate candidate for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania joins America's Roundtable Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy for a conversation focusing on the U.S. soaring inflation, growing concerns of an impending recession, the urgency of restoring America's energy independence and significance of empowering parents and children through school choice and charter schools.

As the Biden administration pushes for an Iran nuclear deal in Vienna, the discussion will also highlight the fact that an agreement with the state sponsor of terrorism will give Tehran access to some $100 billion in frozen funds. These dangerous developments including a nuclear-armed Iran raise the risk of a potential Middle East crisis impacting the region and beyond. Concerns are raised about the $40 billion Ukraine aid being rushed through Congress without greater oversight of spending.

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 in America.

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.
