Presidents get to appoint ambassadors; it’s one of the perks of the job. Typically, though, the previous President’s appointees stay on for a little while, just long enough for the new team to get settled in. Not in Trumpland!
Politico reports that the Trump cabal has taken the unprecedented step of ordering all US ambassadors appointed by President Obama to resign effective immediately, on January 20! This means the US will have no diplomatic representation in countries like Japan, Saudi Arabia, or Britain, while the corrupt popular vote loser decides which of his crooked cronies most deserves the gift of an ambassadorship!
There are nearly 200 ambassadorships available, according to the American Foreign Service Association. While the orange man-baby decides who to install in those positions, the embassies will be run by the highest-ranking career employee. Since very few names have been announced (aside from his outrageous decision to make his bankruptcy lawyer the US ambassador to Israel), and all of the corrupt Trump’s picks have to be confirmed by the Senate, many countries could be without a US ambassador for months!
