U.S. Ambassador to Panama resigns over inability to serve under Trump

( MENAFN ) The U.S. Ambassador to Panama has stepped down from his post due to his inability to work under President Trump.

The ex-helicopter pilot for Marine Corps John Feeley declared he was "honour-bound" to quit.

His resolution to resign was made aware of within the U.S. Department of State in the end of December.

In his resignation memo, the ambassador declared "as a junior foreign service officer, I signed an oath to serve faithfully the president and his administration in an apolitical fashion, even when I might not agree with certain policies. My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come."
