US Ambassador To Panama Resigned BEFORE S**thole Comments

US Ambassador To Panama Resigned BEFORE S**thole Comments

The reports of the resignation comes just hours after the U.S. ambassador to Botswana was summoned as disparaging remarks Trump is alleged to have made about Africa and Haiti which sparked global furor.

Feeley told the US State Department in a letter that he could no longer fulfill the foreign service oath "to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies", according to Reuters, which was read part of the letter.

John Feeley, the US ambassador to Panama, has written and submitted a letter of resignation, saying he is leaving the office on principle and no longer feels comfortable serving in the Trump administration. "That time has come", he added.

The letter goes on to say that he leaves the embassy "in good hands" and the United States relationship with Panama is "strong".

Speaking to reporters, Under Secretary of State Steve Goldstein said he was aware of Feeley's planned departure on Thursday morning, before Trump's alleged use of the vulgar term, and said the ambassador was leaving for "personal reasons".

Others think that he’ll continue to use the picks himself and construct a young core that can emerge after the Cavaliers vs. Fultz is an ideal scoring guard to run alongside him, and can also take over point guard duties if the Simmons experiment fails.

Goldstein told reporters at the State Department.

Feeley was a career diplomat who was sworn in as ambassador in January 2016. He was confirmed as ambassador to Panama in 2015.

While senior acting officials hold the reins in these important jobs, they are not permanent appointees and are limited in how long they can hold the roles.

The White House did not deny Trump made the statement for more than 12 hours before the president himself spoke out about it on Twitter.
