Trump Orders Obama-appointed Ambassadors Leave Posts by Inauguration Day

Leah Barkoukis Posted: Jan 06, 2017 9:30 AM

Donald Trump’s team has ordered all politically appointed ambassadors serving in overseas posts to leave by Inauguration Day, according to a report in The New York Times.
The mandate — issued “without exceptions,” according to a terse State Department cable sent on Dec. 23, diplomats who saw it said — threatens to leave the United States without Senate-confirmed envoys for months in critical nations like Germany, Canada and Britain. In the past, administrations of both parties have often granted extensions on a case-by-case basis to allow a handful of ambassadors, particularly those with school-age children, to remain in place for weeks or months.
An unnamed senior Trump transition official told the Times there was “no ill will” in the order and said the ambassadors shouldn’t be surprised by the requirement, which is simply meant to ensure the appointees leave on time.
Ronald E. Neumann, the president of the American Academy of Diplomacy, an association for former ambassadors and senior diplomats, said the order isn’t unreasonable although it is a bit surprising.
“When you have people out there whose only reason for being an ambassador is their political connection to the outgoing president of a different party, it’s pretty logical to say they should leave,” Neumann, a career Foreign Service officer, told the Times. “But I don’t recollect there was ever a guillotine in January where it was just, ‘Everybody out of the pool immediately.’”
Many ambassadors may directly appeal the decision with Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, according to the Times.

This is just stupid. If Trump cannot do his job properly he should just effing quit.

How is telling appointees of the previous President that since their job ends at noon on 1/20/17 they need to vacate their office not doing his job properly?

 

As far as I know, when you no longer hold a position you don't get to keep using the office.

Trump has done nothing but run his mouth.

 

Obama ended a recession, got Bin Laden, rescued the auto industry and now unemployment is way down that the stock market is way up.

 

Removing ambassadors will not change a thing. Other presidents have not seen any reason to do this, and he has no appointees even selected to appoint.

What difference does it make what other presidents have done? And you don't know if he has a list of people he wants to appoint.

 

Besides...he can either give them two weeks notice that they need to vacate the office or he can wait until he is sworn in and refuse their request to continue, giving them no notice.

 

Seems more professional to give them two weeks...but that's just me.

You have to remember that unless a liberrhoid gets it done THEIR WAY, there is no "other way" to do things.

 

Besides, it gives them something to whine even more about and that alone is worth the price of admission.

 

Funny shit watching them piss and moan over NOTHING.

You are just stupid,Trump has not even been sworn in yet. He is already working to rid the planet of liberal waste and filth. This is for love of country. Something you and your filthy Muslim despise.

OBAMA ENDED THE RECESSION?..............HE IS A COMPLETE DISASTER...YOU MY SHORT PECKERED FRIEND ARE ON CRACK.

 

by Deroy Murdock May 6, 2016 1:59 PM If this morning’s employment report has you down, just listen to President Obama. The U.S. economy is gorgeous, he insists. “In the United States, our economy is growing again,” Obama crowed during his trip to Germany last month. And the American people would appreciate all of this “if we had been able to more effectively communicate all the steps we had taken” to improve it, he recently told one news outlet. “It is very hard to get good stories placed” about the economy, Obama whined to college journalists last week. “People will assign you stories about what’s not working. It’s very hard for you to write a story about, ‘Wow, this thing really works good.’” That grammatical gaffe aside, a failure to communicate is not among Obama’s myriad weaknesses. As his self-confident and hilarious appearance at last Saturday’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner confirmed, Obama is a gifted speaker. The national media have eaten out of his hand since he descended from the heavens, fully formed, at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. As president, he can summon two dozen TV cameras and just as many microphones just by crawling out of bed every morning. So, the notion that Obama cannot express his economic message “good” deeply insults the intelligence of the American people. RELATED: Year Eight of Obama’s Recovery While Obama can talk the bark off a banyan tree, he cannot make Americans hallucinate prosperity. Here is the sad picture they actually see. The unemployment rate has improved significantly, from 7.8 percent at Obama’s January 20, 2009, inauguration to 5.0 percent in April. However, as more and more Americans stop looking for work, the Labor Force Participation Rate on Obama’s watch has fallen from 65.7 percent to 62.8 percent, a level last measured before Obama in March 1978. Since Obama took office, this metric has slid 4.1 percent. Last month saw the creation of 160,000 jobs, a widely panned number, and much below the 200,000-plus jobs generated in five of the last six months. Nothing about the latest employment report spells “boom.” RELATED: Obama’s Lackluster Economy Still Lacks Luster Meanwhile, annualized GDP growth nearly stalled in the first quarter at a meager 0.5 percent. This is down from already tepid 1.4 percent growth in the fourth quarter of 2015. Obama is the only U.S. chief executive in history not to preside over even a single year with 3 percent GDP growth, as the Institute for Policy Innovation’s Tom Giovanetti observes: ‘From 1790 to 2000, U.S. real GDP growth averaged 3.79 percent,’ entrepreneur Louis Woodhill explained at RealClearMarkets. He expects final figures to show that ‘2015 will have been the tenth year in a row that real GDP growth came in at under 3.0 percent.’ During the Obama years, the number of Americans below the poverty line is up 3.5 percent. Real median household income: down 2.3 percent. Americans on Food Stamps — 33 million then, 46 million now: up 39.5 percent. Americans who own homes: down 5.6 percent. National debt — $10.63 trillion then vs. $19.19 trillion last Wednesday: up 80.5 percent.

Meanwhile, millions of college-educated Millennials are languishing in their parents’ basements and wallowing in student debt, with limited prospects. Many of those who have found work lag their predecessors. A recent report by New York City’s Democratic comptroller Scott Stringer found that Gotham employees born between 1985 and 1996 earn roughly 20 percent less than their peers a generation earlier. Lack of work and lower wages are a recipe for student-debt hangovers. Robust economic growth is the cure. “This generation is at a crossroads. They worked hard, got an education and then faced roadblocks to getting a good-paying job,” Stringer told U.S. News and World Report. “We need to foster an economy here that helps young people get ahead, not one that holds them back.” RELATED: Blacks Mainly Backslide under Obama Insurance companies are fleeing Obamacare’s exchanges. Amid $650 million in expected losses this year, UnitedHealth announced that it would medevac itself out of all but “a handful” of its 34 state markets. The percentage of families in which no one is employed has grown from 17.8 in 2008 to 19.7 in 2015, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports. For details on these data, click here: As the Wall Street Journal’s Dan Henninger has noted, even the Clintons acknowledge Obama’s economic wreckage. Americans are suffering “the awful legacy of the last eight years,” Bill Clinton said in March. He explained on April 26, “The problem is, 80 percent of the American people are still living on what they were living on the day before the crash [of 2008]. And about half the American people, after you adjust for inflation, are living on what they were living on the last day I was president, 15 years ago. So that’s what’s the matter.” More Barack Obama O’s Adieu Government by Faculty Lounge Subject to Repeal How Obama Transformed America Stumping in New Haven, Conn., Hillary Clinton spoke about a nurse who is facing breast cancer and foreclosure. “She is speaking for so many people across our country who feel beaten down, left out and left behind,” Hillary said. “People who have worked hard and done their part, but just can’t seem to get ahead, and find it tough even to get by.” In Obama’s eighth year, Americans remain in pain. The best thing he can do is apologize, stop talking, and leave us alone until January 20, 2017.
