Field better candidates against Trump 'or we will all die'

Field better candidates against Trump 'or we will all die'

A top New Zealand diplomat has been reprimanded for telling the United States Democratic Party in a tweet to "get your shit together or we will all die".

Beresford sent at least three tweets late last week disagreeing with an opinion column on political news website "The Hill" that said a 2020 Democratic ticket with Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren could "win big".

Caroline Beresford, Wellington's second-ranked diplomat in the US, tweeted, "get your shit together" while discussing a Democratic ticket of Sens.

Newsroom reported that Beresford confirmed she did send, and later delete, the tweets.

In a brief statement, Foreign Affairs Minister Winston Peters said he was aware of the complaint and confident the Ministry was handling the response appropriately.

"No it couldn't. Please get your shit together or we will all die", she replied, likely referencing her concerns about President Trump's administration.




Caroline Beresford, who is New Zealand's deputy head of mission to the United States, published the posts on her Twitter account on March 10.

A spokesperson for the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade said that "appropriate action" was being taken.

The controversial tweets are Beresford's second high-profile contribution to U.S.

Beresford also serves as New Zealand's ambassador to Haiti.

The US is a close ally for New Zealand, although it isn't the first time New Zealanders have shared their disapproval of the larger power since Mr Trump entered the White House.
