John Feeley, US ambassador to Panama, resigns

US Ambassador to Panama Resigns, Citing Trump Policies

US Ambassador To Panama Resigned BEFORE S**thole Comments

Feeley first joined the State Department in 1990, and is a Latin America specialist.

News of Feeley's resignation comes a day after Trump's comments about immigration and developing countries, where Trump questioned why the US would accept more immigrants from Haiti and "shithole countries" in Africa.

While some have speculated that Feeley's decision was influenced by Trump's comments, a senior State Department official separately told Newsweek that was not the case.

"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honour-bound to resign". Feeley will step down on March 9. Naturally, the president's comments were confirmed by Sen. "That time has come", Feeley said.

However, on Friday morning Trump vaguely denied ever calling Haiti, El Salvador and a number of African countries "shitholes".

After almost a decade's service in the U.S. Marine Corps, Feeley joined the State Department in 1990, becoming ambassador to Panama in 2015.

A number of journalists falsely reported that two US 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.

Throughout his 35 years in both the nation's Marines and Department of State, the ambassador dedicated his efforts to supporting integration and maintaining good relations between the Americas.

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

After the Washington Post reported that President Donald Trump referred to countries as "s**tholes", MSNBC missed the mark big-time in a piece of news that's been in the works since December 27.

It would have been hard for the U.S. Ambassador to Haiti to resign given there is no U.S. Ambassador to Haiti.
