Trump orders Obama ambassadors to leave posts by inauguration

Outstanding....when taking Command one must clean house and appoint ambassadors that will reflect a new direction, heal the wounds our current POTUS, Kerry, Clinton have unleashed on this earth. Since Nov 9th they must have known time was short. Get your things in order and get out.





Trump orders Obama ambassadors to leave posts by inauguration.

Donald Trump's team is ordering politically appointed ambassadors to leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, The New York Times reports.

The mandate could leave the U.S. without Senate-confirmed representatives for months in countries like Germany and Britain, the Times notes.

The order breaks with precedent. In the past, administrations have granted extensions on a case-by-case basis.

Utter stupidity. Cleaning house is one thing, but tossing everyone out before you have replacements in place is just stupid.

I expect this to be reversed by executive tweet within a few days

I saw this story pop up with a link to a story on The Independent.
It's further proof that there's problems within the Deep State! There seem to be some insiders...especially military staffers who were behind Trump, but most of the 3 letter agency leadership obviously wasn't...judging from the number of insider leaks of alleged Trump comments, former heads of FBI, CIA, NSA etc. taking the spotlight and getting wide coverage for why Donald Trump would be the most dangerous president ever...and they were generally attacks from the right! Charging Trump with being weak on defense and security threats.

So, now that he's in, word is his staff have already come up with a list for head-chopping from the FBI and spy agencies, and now from embassy staff. Are there other branches within the State Dept. where heads will be rolling?

I would have most of Trump's boasting and blustering was rhetoric, because if he's setting the table for mass firings and removing the heads of agencies who stay from one political administration and another, a complete shakeup sounds like a dangerous idea. Who knows what will happen next!
Thanks from imaginethat

If you have a list of people for the Senate to confirm, have that list ready on day one, and as the senate confirms ambassadors, accept the resignations of the people they replace.
But rather than go without an ambassador, let the old ambassador stay until they are replaced. Even better, let them stay a few extra days or weeks, at the option of the new ambassador, if the new ambassador wants to be brought up to speed.
Seriously, if you have no ambassador for a while, and then someone shows up, who doesn't know shit about the country, how does that make America look?
Ambassadors aren't exactly hyper political operatives, what differences do you expect between the Obama appointed ambassador to Belgium, and the Trump appointed ambassador?
Thanks from Clara007

Old news.

By tradition, all outgoing Presidents order ALL the administration's political appointees to resign. Obama ordered all of them to make their resignations effective Jan 20 2017. Trump is just honoring their requests.

In the past, some ambassadors had been given extra time out of courtesy for family situations because they are living on the government dime in foreign countries and need to make new arrangements. Trump sees it as a businessman: they had since Nov 9 2016 to make arrangements.

This order breaks precedent. Trump plays by his own rules and far away from Washington DC politico. Trump is going to shake, rattle and roll.

Didn't Obama just sell all of this positions to the highest donors to his campaign?


They did not give King Trump anything, most likely the exact opposit.

Joseph Kennedy Sr. donated a lot of money to the Roosevelt Campaign and was made the US Ambassador of Great Britain. Richard Nixon made Shirley Temple the US Ambassador of Great Britain. I guarantee that Donald Trump will not make Jane Fonda, US Ambassador of Great Britain.
