The U.S. ambassador to Panama resigned Friday, saying he can no longer serve in his post under President Trump.

Ambassador John Feeley wrote a letter to the State Department announcing his decision, Reuters reported.

“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,” Mr. Feeley said in the letter, Reuters reported. “My instructors made clear that if I believed I could not do that, I would be honor bound to resign. That time has come.”

    Good bye, Mr. Ambassador. Don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

    Good, we don’t want or need any Obama-appointed bureaucrats! Plus, some quick research shows that, based on the official State Department audit report of 2014, the Panama embassy had 175 employees, per the report, “up 50% since the last audit in 2006”. Why exactly are we paying salary and benefits to 175 Federal employees for an embassy in Panama? It’s not like all of our efforts and expenditures have turned Central America into a bastion of freedom, prosperity and stability! HopefullyPresident Trump will take this opportunity to cull the herd!
