Ambassador to Panama, John Feeley, has resigned over differences with the Trump administration, according to published reports.
Feeley spent much of his time working on issues impacting Latin American nations, and some of Trump’s policies are viewed as hostile to those countries, Reuters news reported.
Feeley’s resignation reportedly took place before Trump allegedly called Haitian and African countries “s***holes” on Thursday.
Under Secretary of State Steve Goldstein told reporters Feeley’s departure was not related to Trump’s alleged comment, according to published reports.
“Everyone has a line that they will not cross,” Goldstein told reporters at the State Department.
