Trump has nominated a new Ambassador to Russia. Ordinarily this would not be an issue, but questions are being raised because of a past tweet by Donald Trump himself.
“Jon Huntsman called to see me,” Trump wrote in 2012, shortly after the former Utah governor suspended his presidential campaign. “I said no, he gave away our country to China!”
What is Trump planning to give away to Russia? After all, they already gave him the presidency, a quid pro quo must be of equal or greater value.
Huntsman supported Trump after his nomination, but rescinded that support when the ‘Access Hollywood’ tapes were revealed.
Huntsman was the Ambassador to Singapore under George H.W. Bush, and the Ambassador to China under President Obama. His credentials are impeccable, but not his announcement from the White House.
“In announcing him as the nominee for Russia ambassador, the White House praised Huntsman as having had a ‘distinguished career as a politician, diplomat and businessman’ — and misspelled his first name.”
Please re-post; thank you.
