US Panama Ambassador Resigns Over Trump

"That time has come".

However, he reportedly said in his resignation letter that he can no longer serve US President Donald Trump and his administration "in an apolitical fashion".

"My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign", Feeley continued.

Multiple news agencies report that Feeley says he can no longer serve under the Trump Administration, and will be leaving for "personal reasons".

According to the State Department, his decision was made due to personal reasons.

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.

Under Secretary of State Steve Goldstein confirmed he was aware of Mr Feeley's planned departure ahead of the president's alleged remarks on Thursday.

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

Then, Donald Trump becomes president, and in less than a year, he blows up so much of the image of America that you have worked your whole career to build up overseas.

"Everyone has a line that they don't want to cross and we respect that", Goldstein said. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians.

Feeley will be departing the State Department after almost 30 years of service.

He has served since 2016, appointed by former president Barack Obama, in a foreign service appointment which typically lasts around three years.

Making matters worse, an unsourced rumor cropped up on Twitter claiming the U.S. Ambassador to Haiti had also resigned.
