USA ambassador to Panama resigns, says he can't work under Trump anymore

Ambassador to Panama John Feeley US Ambassador to Panama Resigns, Citing Trump Policies
Ellis Copeland | 13 January, 2018, 07:28

MSNBC producer Mary Emily O'Hara indicated that John Feeley, the U.S. Ambassador to Panama resigned his post because of Trump's comments.

In Feeley's letter, he said he could no longer faithfully serve the president.

Panama's DiaaDia reported his resignation before the Washington Post broke the news about Trump's offensive remarks in an Oval Office meeting with senators about immigration.

It was not a response to Mr Trump's alleged use of the word "shithole" to describe Haiti and African countries, USA officials said.

The agency must first take public comments on the proposal for 60 days, revise it, release the new proposal, and then finalize it. In December 2016, as he was preparing to leave the White House, Obama withdrew leasing plans for the Arctic Ocean in Alaska.


"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honour-bound to resign. That time has come", he added.

While it's been reported that Feeley had already made a decision to resign prior to Trump's "sh*thole" comments, the underlying sentiment remains the same.

"Everyone has a line that they will not cross", Goldstein said.

The news broke in the United States late Friday morning but Univision News tweeted his resignation letter early Thursday afternoon, before reports of Trump's "shithole" comments surfaced. "If the ambassador feels that he can no longer serve. then he has made the right decision for himself and we respecte that". From 2009 to 2012, he was stationed in Mexico, where he worked as deputy chief of mission and chargé d'affaires at the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City. His last day will be March 9. And in what appears to be a case of coincidental timing, the USA ambassador to Panama has announced his resignation from his position.
