US Ambassador To Panama Resigns, Saying He Can't Serve Trump

Trump's'shithole countries remarks spur int'l anger

USA ambassador to Panama John D. Feeley said he would resign Friday because he can no longer serve under Trump.

A number of journalists falsely reported that two USA ambassadors resigned in protest of alleged comments President Donald Trump made Thursday, when he was accused of using vulgar language to describe many third-world countries.

Feely is a career diplomat and U.S. Marine Corps helicopter pilot veteran who acknowledged in his resignation letter that he believed he could no longer serve apolitically in the Trump administration.

"Ambassador Feeley informed leadership of his decision on December 27, 2017", the State Department said.

Feeley, one of the department's Latin America specialists and among its senior most officers, made clear that he had come to a place where he no longer felt able to serve under Trump. The White House released a statement immediately following The Washington Post's report, notably not denying that the president made these comments.

Trump's alleged comments about African nations being "shitholes" is unlikely to improve the mood among members of the U.S. diplomatic corps. The Trump administration recently chose to soon end Temporary Protected Status for citizens of countries like Haiti and El Salvador, who came to the escape natural disasters.

Meanwhile, Tillerson and Kang will "have an opportunity to interact", he added, possibly alluding to bilateral talks. Security Council that month imposed new caps on trade with North Korea, including limiting oil product shipments.

He said his understanding was that the ambassador had resigned for "personal reasons".

"Everyone has a line that they will not cross", "Goldstein told reporters at the State Department". "If the ambassador feels that he can no longer serve... then he has made the right decision for himself and we respect that". But 320 days have elapsed since the start of the Trump administration and acting officials in the State Department are starting to hit that limit, making presidential nominations more important than ever.
