Apparently, the Trump administration hasn’t seen fit to bother with nominating ambassador Turkey and Saudi Arabia, amongst others.
Thanks for that.
I thought this was just due to incompetence, but at this point, there must be a strategy behind this.
Just like the Federalist Society has a list for Trump to appoint judges from, I’m sure Washington Insiders have a list of people eager to be named Ambassadeur, even in less-than-awesome locations.
My guess is that Trump is holding out for some sort of gain (political or financial) - either from the applicants or the target countries.
